    About this property

    • Shurnock Court is a magnificent Grade II* Listed country house dating from the sixteenth century. A quintessentially English black and white timbered building, Shurnock Court is a superb home nestled in almost 13 acres of grounds and is surrounded by a moat and lakes. This historic house has been very well-maintained and sympathetically combines wonderful historic features such as exposed timbers, panelling, oak joinery and fireplaces with all the conveniences and luxuries of twenty-first century living.

      The property is entered via a large studded oak door which leads to the reception hall with exposed timbers to one side and staircase to the first floor. The morning room has double doors which lead to a study and on to the impressive drawing room. Doors lead out to the garden and terrace. The sitting room has an open fireplace, exposed timbers and wooden floor to one side with a raised seating area. There is a formal dining room with exposed timbers, open fireplace and views over the moat.

      The generous “Mark Wilkinson” kitchen/breakfast room is superb with a wealth of floor and wall cupboards with numerous integrated appliances, including oven/hob in a central island and an Aga. Twin Belfast sinks sit within a bay window providing views across the gardens. A utility room and a central heating operations room are located in the cellar. There is ample outside space for a table and chairs on a raised area.

      The first-floor principal bedroom is dual aspect and enjoys views over the gardens and grounds. There is a well-appointed en suite shower room. There are four further bedrooms on the first floor, two with en suites, and a family bathroom. The second floor has a guest suite with en suite bathroom.

      The property benefits from a Pool Cottage which comprises a sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a shower room plus sauna. The Coach House offers a three-car garage with workshop area, a ground floor kitchen and a living room, two bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor.

      The property is accessed through wrought iron electric gates, which lead on to a sweeping gravel driveway where there is plenty of parking space for several cars. A wrought iron foot bridge leads over the moat to the front door. The impressive and extensive landscaped gardens and grounds are the perfect setting for the house with lawned areas and mature specimen trees and fruit trees, the whole being bordered by the lakes and large moat. There is an outdoor heated swimming pool set within a paved sun terrace and to the side a pergola and hot tub area. Nearby is an all-weather tennis court.

      To the rear of the property is a stable block with four loose boxes, feed store and tack room, all of which are laid to concrete. These lead onto the all-weather manège, which is enclosed in post and rail fencing. There is a detached cladded and insulated barn/store/workshop measuring externally 59` x 33` (approximately 1650 square feet internally) with separate access to the road. The land is level permanent pasture and divided by post and rail fencing.

      The sale of the property presents an exciting opportunity to purchase a handsome period property situated in beautiful Worcestershire countryside.

      A bridle path passes through the fields away from the private gardens. Please refer to land plan. The front road access is shared with neighbouring properties.
