The Glen

Built in the early 1900's, this lovely period home was extended in the late 1990's by the current owners to improve the space for modern family living and has been tastefully and sympathetically refurbished throughout, in keeping the property's Edwardian roots.
On the ground floor, an attractive conservatory/porch provides access into the main hallway fitted with bespoke bookshelves to one side and a turned staircase to the first floor.
The kitchen/breakfast room benefits from fitted Maple kitchen units with granite worksurfaces. There is an oil-fired Rayburn for cooking and complementary heating in the colder months and a fitted electric oven and gas hob (running off bottled gas) for the summer. A useful walk-in pantry off the kitchen provides ample space for storage, and from the dining area patio doors give access to the gardens.
To the rear of the kitchen is a very practical utility room with sink unit and space for washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also a separate W.C and access to the rear porch. The space combines wonderfully to cope with muddy boots, coats and dogs.

The Glen Ctd.

The downstairs space is completed by two reception rooms; there is a formal dining room with a period open fireplace and the main sitting room which features a brick and stone built fireplace incorporating a Morso wood-burning stove, with a lovely large window looking out into the garden.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The main bedroom enjoys a fabulous triple aspect and benefits from a dressing area incorporating built-in wardrobes/storage, and a super en-suite with twin sink units and a good-sized walk-in shower. There are two further double bedrooms, one with a lovely period fireplace, and a single bedroom which is currently utilised as a study.

The Outside

Timber gates provide access onto the smart, gravelled driveway which culminates in a good-sized yard with ample parking. There is a double timber carport, which is currently used as hay storage but has also been used as a mare & foal box in the past.
The main yard consists of a dedicated concrete washdown area, a timber lorry store (6.3m x 4.6m), four timber stables in total (circa 12ft x 12ft, 13ft x 12ft and two 15ft x 12ft). Adjacent to the stables is a tack room and feed store, with power, light and sink, and an adjoined 3 bay timber hay store. The yard is excellently positioned, out of sight of the lane but within sight of the house.
There is a 20m x 50m post and rail fenced arena with a sand and fibre surface, this is well drained and affords lovely views up to the Malvern Hills.
The paddocks lie to the rear of the arena and stable yard and extend in all to just over 5 Acres. The paddocks are split primarily into 4 fields, are gently sloping and well fenced and hedged to make them stock proof.
