Situation

The pretty village of Bushley is situated just 2½ miles north-west of the historic market town of Tewkesbury, on the west bank of the River Severn, and is surrounded by picturesque and gently undulating traditional farmland. The village was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Biselege or Bisselega meaning "The meadow in the wood". Wellingtonia House is situated in the heart of this popular village, adjacent to the Church with its former use as the vicarage, and benefits from excellent commuter links and access to the larger towns and cities.

Wellingtonia House


Built in the mid 1800's this fabulous property, laid out over three floors, offers spacious accommodation with many classic period features from the era, including wooden panelling, mullion windows, window shutters and working fireplaces.
The country-style Aga fitted kitchen/breakfast room overlooks the kitchen garden with access via a stable door.
The light drawing room has a dual aspect with delightful views over the garden. Original, decorative wood panelling further enhances this beautiful room, which opens to the dining room with its feature fireplace, wood panelling and original shutters.
A cosy snug and a good-sized study offer scope for a variety of uses, and potential for ground-floor bedrooms with the cloak room opposite.
A very useful utility room is located by the rear door which has good access to the garden, the large garage and workshop. There are ancillary wood and garden stores directly accessible from the house via a covered lobby.
On the first floor, there are 5 good-sized double bedrooms, and 2 family bath/shower rooms; the shower room usefully positioned to be able to offer an en-suite facility.
On the second floor there is a 6th bedroom and 3 other inter-connecting rooms, offering scope for a variety of uses, including additional bedrooms, work or store rooms, also with the potential to create a self-contained apartment.
Wellingtonia House has been well maintained and loved by the vendors, who have owned this excellent family home for over 40 years. The house was re roofed in 2004.

The Outside


The property is approached off the village road via the tarmac access road to the church. A private entrance leads to the garages and parking area.
The well-established garden has a large lawned area, bordered by a variety of mature shrubs and trees, including two Wellingtonia, a small orchard and a generous vegetable/kitchen garden. The house enjoys views over the surrounding open farmland.
The large brick-built triple garage with workshop was added in 1991. Together with the the wood and garden stores, these provide very useful storage space.
There is ample parking in the private driveway with pedestrian access leading to the house, with its impressive recessed porch.
