Situation

Hill Top occupies a fantastic rural location, tucked away within beautiful and tranquil countryside. This part of Worcestershire lies close to the Herefordshire border with Bringsty Common, and its hacking and walking opportunities, to the North and the Suckley and Malvern Hills to the southeast. The surrounding countryside is renowned for its scenic and unspoilt rural appeal, characterised by traditional farms, wooded hills and orchards. The property is located off a quiet country lane, yet is well placed for the local commercial centres.

Hill Top


Hill Top has been extensively improved and extended over the last 6 years to provide a wonderful and modern home.
A welcoming and spacious entrance hall with attractive oak flooring, leads on through to the spacious, open plan kitchen/breakfast and sitting room and to the 2 additional reception rooms/bedrooms and downstairs shower room.
The spacious, modern kitchen/breakfast and sitting area is a wonderfully light and bright room, with the kitchen offering plenty of cupboard space for storage and benefiting from granite work surfaces, an integrated Neff double oven and hob, a 2-oven Aga and dishwasher with space for a fridge-freezer and washing machine, and direct access to the raised decked area, garden and yard.
The sitting area also has oak flooring and a fireplace with wood-burning stove, providing a focal point and ensuring the space is wonderfully cosy in the colder months.
The two reception rooms situated off the entrance hall offer flexible accommodation for a variety of uses, such as two further bedrooms, an office/study, snug room, TV or games room. There is also a good-sized modern shower room, which has been recently and tastefully refurbished.
Upstairs there are two large double bedrooms, both with double aspect to enjoy the stunning views over the land and surrounding countryside, and a good-sized and recently refurbished family bathroom.

The Outside


The property is approached via a private driveway, off a quiet country lane, which leads up to the parking area(s) and the house, which is privately situated and not overlooked.
The driveway opens out to a good concrete yard, where there is further parking if required, and ample space for horse box/lorry, etc.
There is a stone outbuilding adjacent to the property currently used for storage and it has a W.C. (PP has been granted on this for conversion, see further details below)
Superb American-style barn with five 12' x 14' (approx.) stables; one of which converts to a mare & foal box (c. 17' 10" x 15'), with adjoining tack/feed store, rug store/workshop, all with electricity supply/light and water.
Well maintained, post & rail fenced Charles Britton arena with high spec sand and fibre surface.
There is a further store/workshop and a good, open fronted hay barn/equipment store.
Gently sloping pasture paddocks extending to approximately 8½ acres lie to the rear and side of the property. 4 acres currently set up as a partially surfaced track system.
The gardens, which offer plenty of scope, are largely lawn with established shrubs and flowering plants to the front of the property and there is a raised decked area offering an ideal space for seasonal dining.
A variety of local Herefordshire fruit trees; including damsons, cherries, apple, pear and plum create a small orchard and there is also a polytunnel, which offers further potential to grow one's own produce, a raspberry patch, kiwi bush and productive grapevine.
The property is situated in a lovely quiet, rural location and enjoys wonderful views over the land and surrounding countryside.
