Close to the historic village of Feckenham which has an active rural community with a traditional English village green, a Norman church, two public houses, a primary school, sports clubs, village hall and shop. The area is equidistant from market towns of Bromsgrove, Alcester and Droitwich which provide most shopping and leisure needs. The property also has easy access to the M5, M42 and M40 motorways with Stratford upon Avon to Worcester and Birmingham offering more extensive social, retail and leisure amenities. Walking and riding is excellent around local countryside, rambling routes and woods. Worcester, Bromsgrove and Stratford have excellent state and private schools. Direct trains run from Bromsgrove, Droitwich and Redditch to Worcester and Birmingham with connections to London.

Description

Undoubtedly one the principal houses in the area, Old Berrow Hill Farm is an attractive Grade II listed former farmhouse with mellow red brick and timber frame façades, the original dating back to circa 1650 with later extensions providing the very spacious five bedroom family home of today. The property is an excellent blend of original character and contemporary elegance exemplified by the recent highly specified luxury kitchen. Outside there is an original period barn which is also listed and a garage block with workshop and storage areas. Attractive house gardens surround the property and pasture land/paddocks provide scope for among other things equestrian pursuits.

Gardens and Grounds

The property is approached over a tarmacadam drive through electric gates which lead to an enclosed courtyard area which in turn gives access to a detached garage block painstakingly built from reclaimed materials providing parking for 3 cars with lock up storage area / workshop and stairs leading to further boarded loft storage. Also incorporated in the courtyard is a traditional brick and timber listed barn, vaulted with central barn coach doors with adjacent stable bays. Additional open cart bays with external steps to first floor storage. The property and barns sit in just less than an acre of beautiful landscaped gardens principally laid to lawn with herbaceous borders which benefit from two feature patio areas, small pond and a purpose-built vegetable patch and greenhouse. Either side of the driveway the property benefits from two flat enclosures suitable for pastureland or paddocks, the largest being approximately 1.8 acres and a smaller field being approximately 0.4 acres with a wildlife pond.
