Location & Description

Elms Barn enjoys a lovely position on the outskirts of the highly regarded village of Mathon approximately four miles from Great Malvern, just over three miles from the well served village of Colwall and about eight miles from Ledbury, all of which provide a comprehensive choice of amenities. Malvern in particular boasts a
variety of shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Transport communications are excellent. There are mainline railway stations in Great Malvern, Colwall and Ledbury and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about eleven miles.
Mathon itself is a classic English village lying on the borders of Herefordshire and Worcestershire in the heart of unspoilt countryside and within reach of numerous footpaths, bridleways and walks including the eight miles range of the Malvern Hills which are only a short drive away.
The property itself is less than two minutes on foot from the village church and stands in an easily maintained and mature landscaped garden with a lovely gated approach over a long gravel driveway. From this private setting it enjoys views across its own ground and paddocks (which extend to over two and a half acres) towards woodland and hillside in the distance. It is a great spot and within its curtilage there is a modern stable and extensive off road parking.
Originally forming part of a range of outbuildings, Elms Barn was sympathetically converted into residential use in the 1980's. Since then it has been the subject of further updating. The end result is an extremely contemporary, imaginatively designed detached home with the flexibility to accommodate a traditional family but also compact enough to suit the busy working couple or the active retired.
A number of features are worthy of note including oak flooring, mains gas central heating, double glazed windows and highly efficient log burners in three of the reception rooms making this a very warm house. The majority of the accommodation is at ground floor level which makes the property ideal for those who may need to avoid stairs.
An attractive porch opens into a small lobby, off which is an open plan hall/sitting room, a shower room that doubles as a cloakroom, a large lounge, a conservatory (with views over the garden and countryside), a dining room, well equipped kitchen, boot room and two bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite bathroom. On the first floor an attractive landing leads to two further bedrooms and to a bathroom.
