Situation

The property is situated in a very private, rural location surrounded by its own land on the outskirts of the village of Cradley, which is situated amongst beautiful countryside. Cradley is a thriving and well-serviced village located to the West of the Malvern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Herefordshire/Worcestershire borders. This is a beautiful, desirable, and very accessible part of the countryside, complemented by good local towns, schools and facilities, and with excellent access to the commercial centres of Worcester, Cheltenham, Gloucester, and Birmingham, all with good commuter links.

Whitehouse Farm


Whitehouse farm is a modern, dormer bungalow built about 40 years ago on the original site of an old cottage, and provides a spacious, yet comfortable home with further potential, and was originally part of a local, family-owned farmstead.
An enclosed entrance porch leads through into the main entrance hall, with all the ground floor accommodation leading off.
Located off an additional hallway is the cosy sitting room which is lovely and light and has French doors out to the patio terrace. This room is complemented by an oil-burning stove set within an attractive fireplace and super views over the land and beyond across the surrounding countryside and Malvern Hills.
The good-sized kitchen/dining room is a lovely, homely room and benefits from a modern fitted kitchen, an electric Rangemaster range cooker with cooker hood and space for a fridge-freezer, a dishwasher, and a washing machine.

Whitehouse Farm (Continued)


There is also a generous double bedroom with wet room to the ground floor, a rear hallway with back door out to the yard and a separate, useful downstairs WC.
Stairs from the hall lead to the first floor, where there are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The main bedroom benefits from a great, walk-in attic room, currently used as a walk-in wardrobe, which offers potential for a variety of uses, such as an en-suite shower room, study, or just as great storage. A further walk-in cupboard off the landing provides additional storage.

The Outside


The property is approached off a quiet, rural lane turning onto a private driveway where there is parking for several vehicles located to the front.
The areas of garden to the front and rear of the property are lawned and planted with a variety of spring flowers and maturing shrubs and trees.
There is also a large patio terrace, which is a great space for seasonal dining, bbq's and entertaining.
The garden offers scope for keen gardeners and further input if desired. The hot tub is available by separate negotiation.

The Outside (Continued)


A good cellar/workshop is accessed externally and provides a great, flexible space, such as a home office, gym, games room, etc. There is also a timber garden shed, and an old timber pigeon loft which offers good storage.
An area of woodland adjoins the pasture paddocks and is a haven for wildlife.
The land is divided into several stock proof enclosures, and on the whole, is gently sloping. A stone track runs though a number of the paddocks providing year-round access and in total, the land amounts to nearly 57 acres.
