Within walking distance of St Wulstan's Nature Reserve and only a short drive to Great Malvern, the popular village of Colwall (4½ miles) and the market town of Ledbury.

Oak House is a very private and comfortable family home providing generous accommodation throughout with scope to modernise; perfect for those wanting to make their own mark.
A wonderfully spacious, open plan kitchen/breakfast room opens to the conservatory and is the heart of this lovely home. The kitchen provides ample storage, including a good larder cupboard, and benefits from an electric Aga plus an integrated double electric oven.
The conservatory leads directly off the kitchen, flooding this super space with light, with potential to create views over the garden and paddocks beyond. There is direct access to a large, South facing patio terrace which has a very private aspect and views South over the garden, paddocks and beyond.

A really useful boot room beyond the kitchen has a rear door to the garden and a separate utility/laundry room leads off here. The adjacent ground floor shower room also provides a WC.
There are three versatile reception rooms; a lovely and light sitting room, a good-sized drawing room, a snug and a study.
To the first floor there are five, good-sized double bedrooms, 2 with en-suite facilities, plus a family bathroom. The main bedroom has great proportions and benefits from walk-in wardrobes, a dressing area and a large en-suite with separate bath and shower.
A gated entrance leads to the gravelled front drive. A second lower entrance gives vehicular access to the outbuild, stables and paddocks, plus additional parking.
The mature garden is well stocked with a variety of fruiting trees, shrubs and herbaceous borders surrounding the house. The lower garden contains an above ground, heated outdoor swimming pool with a pump shed.
Below the garden is a large brick-built outbuilding with internal garage (circa 775 sq ft). Used as storage, this building offers good scope for alternative uses or conversion. A wooden 3 stable block sits behind this barn on a concrete pad, with an open fronted hay bay to one end.
The gently sloping, mature paddocks are south of and beyond the house. These are split into 3 paddocks, post and rail fenced and gated. The woodchip surfaced arena (20m x 40m) is situated in the top paddock with a field shelter adjacent.

This home has tremendous potential and combines with the location, the excellent local schooling and great accessibility, making this a unique and desirable property.
