3.5 Acres

Stables & Extensive Outbuildings

Ideal Equestrian Property

Quiet Country Lane

Superb Family Home approx 2400 sq ft

A delighfully situated individual country property, circa 2400 sq ft set in around 3.5 acres with excellent equestrian facilities and extensive range of outbuildings.

Melbury House is situated in a quiet country lane, just a mile from the village of Hartlebury and surrounded by open countryside with no near neighbours in sight, being the perfect location for commuters to Worcester, Birmingham and the West Midlands conurbation, with excellent main road links to local commercial centres and the motorway network easily accessible, M5 j6 (Sixways) being a 20 minute drive from the house. Better still, Hartlebury Railway Station is only 5 minutes away, providing a regular connection between Birmingham and Worcester.

The house originally dates from 1958, though the present owners have since 2016 considerably extended and upgraded the property, which now offers superb family living accommodation enjoying uninterrupted countryside views from virtually every window.

Standing well back from the lane behind an electric gated driveway, there is generous parking space for a number of cars plus detached double garage with electric up & over door. The house has an attractive and distinctive architectural style, whilst the interior accommodation is both light and spacious.

There is a study/ office positioned off the entrance hall, while the staircase features a half-landing with cloaks cupboard.

The large open plan lounge & offset dining room incorporates two large bays, each with glazed double doors, the lounge to the front and dining area to the side looking across the paddocks. The lounge has a log burner and both areas feature the original parquet floor, continuing through from the hallway.

The open plan 20' galley-style kitchen opens out into the beautifully spacious family room (29'7" x 17'4") which has bi-fold dooors to the rear and further sliding patio doors to the side, facing the pony paddock.

There is a also a guest cloakroom plus utility room off the kitchen, featuring a Belfast sink and wooden worksurfaces.

To the first floor there are four bedrooms, the master bedroom (17'4" x 16'4") with en-suite wc & hand basin, whilst the bedroom itself features a clawfoot bath tub.

The second bedroom also features an en-suite bathroom, whilst the third and fourth bedrooms are both of decent proportions, the latter forming an intriguing conical shape by virtue of the 'roundhouse' design.

The spectacular principal bathroom undeniably makes a big statement, being of wonderful proportions (12'4" x 11'0") with clear glazed double doors opening to a Juliette balcony which directly overlooks the paddocks.

The bathroom has a clawfoot bath, spa shower, wc, pedestal hand basin and in-built linen/ toiletries closet with sliding mirror panelled doors.

Melbury House affords an exceptional opportunity for those seeking an individual country home with equestrian pursuits in mind. Charlton Lane is a single track country lane, providing safe riding with access nearby onto the disused railway line which leads to Leapgate Country Park, a green corridor between Hartlebury and Stourport.

The house stands centrally within the plot, with two paddocks of around 2.25 acres to the left side of the house and a smaller enclosure of 0.33 acre to the right.

The stableyard includes two brick-built stables plus a tack room, hay store and an excellent steel-framed open-fronted store (40' x 27'), all positioned well away from the house and providing the ideal equestrian set-up.

There is a separate vehicular access gate approx 100 yards from the main drive, ideal for a horsebox, and in all the entire plot extends to 3.43 acres.

In addition there is a separate enclosed steel sectional barn sub-divided to provide garaging for several cars (41'1" x 23'4") plus adjacent workshop (41'1" x 13'9").

All outbuildings have electric and water connected.

Tenure is Freehold. Mains electricity and water are connected. Central heating is oil-fired and drainage is to a septic tank.

Council tax is payable to Wychavon District Council, rated as Band F (subject to review once the house is sold as a result of improvements made).
