    About this property

    • The Old House is a quintessential Worcestershire country home occupying an enviable position on the outskirts of Pershore. The black and white farmhouse, dating from the mid 1600's, enjoys a wealth of original features together with natural charm, warmth and character. Sitting centrally within its plot, the long gravelled drive sweeps to the central courtyard, to the rear of the property and to the substantial garaging. The courtyard provides parking for at least 6 cars.

      Entered by way of a traditional entrance hall, the accommodation is set over three floors and equates to 3,242 sq. ft. of living space.

      The dining room is particularly attractive with a beautiful inglenook fireplace which complements the exposed ceiling beams and flagstone floor and leads to the country-style kitchen, fitted with gas and electric AGA, a comprehensive range of units, cabinetry and integrated dishwasher, with a dual Belfast sink and plentiful dining space. In addition there is a lobby area leading to the back door and a utility room/fitted cloakroom.

      The formal drawing room has an array of period features including a large inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, and stairs rising to the first floor. The sitting/TV room enjoys a dual aspect with pleasant views over the garden and has French doors opening to the side terrace and a fitted gas fire.

      The first floor consists of four good-sized bedrooms and a well-appointed bathroom. The principal bedroom features a four-poster bed with the use of a modest-sized cloakroom. Bedroom two has extensive fitted wardrobes, with both bedrooms enjoying a dual aspect. There are two further bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a study.

      The second floor is very versatile: one side has a double bedroom and a spacious bathroom, and the other has a large reception area and a study, previously used as a home office. Furthermore, there is plentiful storage in the eves.

      Around the rear courtyard are the brick-built outbuildings comprising a Victorian coach house with garage underneath and versatile beamed loft room above, plus a modern 3-car garage with significant storage above and a spacious workshop. There is full planning to convert the workshop and coach house garage into further accommodation with 3 garages still remaining.

      The gardens are a fabulous extension of the main house, beautifully landscaped with pleasant views over the immediate escarpment. There is a wide selection of mature trees, shrubs and plants plus kitchen garden area with raised beds. Principally laid to lawn and bounded by hedges there are numerous herbaceous beds, established borders and idyllic seating areas. In addition there is a large attractive pond and summer house/garden shed.
