About this property

  • Home Farm is a charming detached house, built in red brick under a slate tiled roof, thought to be around 150/200 years old. The property was once part of the Overbury Estate and purchased from them by the current owner. The property would now benefit from modernisation and upgrading but has great scope for extension (subject to the necessary consents) or developing further for those with other interests such as equestrian or horticultural. To the rear of the house is a two bay barn and beyond that the large greenhouse. There is an extensive garden, the lawn area of which has been used as a grass tennis court, plus a terrace with pizza oven. There is also a chicken coop, small duck pond, natural pond and a large fruit and vegetable cage. Away from the house adjoining the pasture land is the modern, former cow barn and adjoining workshop with reinforced concrete floor. There is power and water to this area.

    Approached through a five bar gate and over a cattle grid, the property sits off the village lane with a long driveway running through the field leading to the barn and house. The house sits on a small rise, with lovely southerly views across fields to Dumbleton Hill, to the west across farmland being part of the Overbury Estate and to the North, towards Bredon Hill.

    The accommodation is over two floors, with two sitting rooms either side of the entrance hall, one with a large Inglenook and wood burner, the other with working fireplace. A large rear hall with storage cupboards leads to the cloakroom and boot room, plus a north facing larder, and to the kitchen/breakfast room with range of floor and wall cupboards, and a double aspect with some lovely views, plus a stable type door into the cottage gardens. A sun room has double doors out to the garden, and further countryside views. On the first floor are four bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, and a bathroom. The principal rooms all enjoy the lovely southerly outlook over fields. The property is offered with no onward chain.

Such a combination - edge of a Bredon Hill village, one of my favourite areas, outbuildings, land, bags of potential.... and it sits on a little rise, with views to Bredon and Dumbleton Hills, and over its own land and down the long drive through fields.
