Situation

The Clock House is situated within the beautiful and private grounds of the Brockhampton Estate, a National Trust property with 1,700 Acres of parkland to use and enjoy, close to the historic market town of Bromyard. The town is referred to as the "Town of Festivals", notable for its variety of traditional festivals held throughout the year. This property is also well placed for the local towns of Ledbury, Malvern and Leominster, with the cities of Worcester and Hereford nearby. This part of Herefordshire, which lies close to the Worcestershire border, is known for its traditional farms, undulating countryside and productive orchards.

The Clock House


This delightful property historically dates from c.1785 and was originally part of the old stable block to Brockhampton House. The Clock House was first converted in 1984 and subsequently remodelled to a high standard throughout by the current owners in 2013, including re-wiring and a new central heating system.
An entrance hall with Mandarin Stone limestone flooring, with WC off, opens into this welcoming home, which offers comfortable accommodation throughout.
A superb, bespoke, hand-painted fitted kitchen with breakfast/dining area, offers plenty of storage, including a larder cupboard, integrated NEFF Cooker and Induction hob, fridge-freezer and dishwasher. The kitchen is complemented by granite work surfaces, Mandarin Stone limestone flooring and enjoys a pleasant outlook and direct access to the walled garden.

The cosy, yet light and bright sitting room benefits from a double aspect and a Clearview wood-burning stove, which is set on a slate hearth. Bespoke oak shelving provides an attractive feature and blends perfectly with the historic nature of this property, which exhibits a variety of exposed beams and trusses.
The stairs, with half-landing, lead up to a light and airy galleried landing off which are three good-sized double bedrooms. The main bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room and fitted wardrobes, and there are two sets of double fitted wardrobes in the third bedroom.
The part-boarded loft space with electric lighting is accessed via a drop-down ladder and provides a useful additional storage area.

The Outside


The property is approached via the main entrance to the Brockhampton Estate, with a private, "Residents Only" roadway leading to an ample parking area and the courtyard entrance, around which the properties are located.
There is a mature and manageable walled garden (south-facing) to the rear of the property, which has been thoughtfully planted to provide year-round interest, showcasing, amongst others, a variety of spring flowers, roses, climbing plants, allium and mature shrubs. There is an attractive, clematis covered pergola with seating area and a water feature.
An original canopy, which was part of the historic stable block and was used to shelter incoming carriages, extends from the roof and provides a fabulous, covered seating and entertaining area enabling enjoyment of the garden from Spring through to Autumn and even on sunny, wintry days.

The Outside ctd.


A single garage is attached to the property and provides a useful external utility area, with sink unit, cupboard storage and ample space for washing machine/tumble dryer, etc. There is also a bespoke, combined log store and tool shed, and a further garden shed.
