Location & Description

Ceres enjoys a convenient position about a mile from the popular and well served village of Leigh Sinton where local amenities include an excellent village stores/post office, a Chinese restaurant, well respected pub and a modern primary school. The larger towns of Malvern (4 miles), Worcester (6 miles) and Hereford (16 miles) are all within easy striking distance. There are mainline railway stations at all of these three centres and junction 7 of the M5 motorway is only about 15 minutes away by car.

The property itself was originally constructed at the end of the Victorian era in the late 1800s and comprises a detached two storey house which in more recent years has been the subject of complete transformation, extension and refurbishment into a fine contemporary home. It also offers considerable scope for extension to increase the already generous accommodation. The present owners have spared little expense in carrying out these improvements and some features are worthy of special mention, notably the recently redesigned high quality kitchen (which has a comprehensive range of units and accessories), a newly installed shower room and refitted bathroom, double glazed windows and oil fired central heating.

All the principle rooms are generously proportioned and with their large double glazed windows enjoy a feeling of space and light making the most of the wonderful views that virtually all of them have across the surrounding countryside. The ground floor is particularly spacious and includes an entrance hall, a contemporary shower room, dining room, a large living room, the excellent kitchen and utility room. On the first floor a landing leads to three good sized bedrooms, one of which has its own en suite dressing room. This could easily be converted into a fourth bedroom without great expense. Also at this level is the refitted bathroom.

One of the great strengths of Ceres is its setting in a mature level garden that has been carefully landscaped and designed to keep maintenance to a minimum. It enjoys an impressive approach over a long brick paviour driveway that provides off road parking for several vehicles and leads to a garage and separate car port. There is also a small store shed and workshop. The garden is surrounded on all sides by open countryside and there are particularly stunning views of the Malvern Hills to the south. The name 'Ceres' emphasises this lovely setting. It is the Greek word for the Goddess of Corn and Harvest.
