Situation

This area benefits from excellent road and mainline rail links.

Midsummer House


This spacious, modern family home was built in the Mid-1990's and extended to add a self-contained studio apartment in 2000/2001.
Midsummer House has been very well-maintained by the current owners, who have resided at the property since it was new.
The property has been well thought out, with all the ground floor accommodation, and stairs to the first floor, being accessed off the good-sized, main entrance hall.
The spacious kitchen/breakfast room is a great family space and offers ample storage, and benefits from an integrated NEFF electric oven and a separate gas hob, with space for a dishwasher and fridge. There is a good-sized, separate utility room with additional storage, sink and space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge-freezer.
The generous sitting room is complemented by a gas fire inset within a marble surround and hearth, and benefits from a triple aspect and French doors opening out to the patio terrace. There is also a separate, formal dining room, a study and a downstairs WC.

A rear lobby leads off the utility and provides access to the patio terrace and garden to the rear of the property, and to the attached studio flat.
The studio flat is self-contained and offers open plan kitchen/living/bedroom space with a separate bathroom and good built-in storage/airing cupboard. A great flexible space with potential for a variety of uses, such as living accommodation for dependent family member(s), guest accommodation, ideal for older children, games room, etc.
Stairs lead up to a spacious and airy galleried landing where there are 4 generous double bedrooms and a large family bathroom with separate bath and walk-in shower. There is also an airing cupboard located off the landing.
The main bedroom suite benefits from built-in storage/bedroom furniture, a dressing area and an en-suite shower room with walk-in shower.

The Outside


The property is accessed via a private, gated driveway off the village lane, which leads to the front of the property where there is ample parking and access to the detached, double garage.
The property is set well back from the village lane by the established main garden which is lawned and planted with a variety of mature shrubs, trees and flowering plants, including a stunning Indian Bean Tree. There is also a rockery and an attractive waterfall water feature.
A steppingstone leads over the waterfall and through a doorway arch to the raised veg beds and greenhouse, and subsequently around to the rear of the property where there is a paved terrace running along the length of the house, complemented by an attractive array of maturely planted shrubs and trees, including Acer, lavender, winter-flowering jasmine, clematis, and hydrangea.

The Outside Ctd.


Apple trees, a fan-trained fig tree, an espalier pear, and a grapevine add further interest and a crop of fruit in the late summer through to autumn.
There is also a lovely patio seating area to sit and enjoy the surroundings, which has direct access through to the sitting room. The rear patio can also be accessed off the rear lobby from the kitchen, which is very useful for seasonal dining and entertaining.
There are lovely views from the property to The Malvern Hills to the front aspect and over farmland to the rear.
