Property Summary

Location & Description

The Barn enjoys a convenient location less than two minutes on foot from the bustling centre of Barnards Green where there is a comprehensive choice of local amenities including a Co-op supermarket, a post office, cash machine, shops and takeaways. The wider amenities of Great Malvern are less than a mile distant. Here there further shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. The immediate area is well served by some of the best schools in the region in both the private and state systems including The Chase secondary, Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School. There is an equally broad choice of primary education nearby.

Transport communications are excellent. Great Malvern railway station is only about five minutes walk away with direct access to London Paddington, Birmingham, Hereford and South Wales. There is a regular bus service running through Barnards Green and junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester together with junction 1 of the M50 at Upton are both only a short drive.

The original property itself dates back over a century. For the majority of this time it was a working barn but in 2000 it was imaginatively extended and converted into a lovely detached home. It is approached off Court Road along a private driveway that serves not only The Barn but a small number of other houses. This approach ensures that it enjoys a private and exclusive setting. Indeed its setting is one of its great strengths in a larger than average beautifully landscaped level garden. This has been designed, shaped and nurtured by the present owner to provide a particularly sheltered and sunny south and west facing aspect with a fine view of the Malvern Hills in the distance.

The majority of the accommodation is on the ground floor although there is a mezzanine level as well. An attractive hall leads to a very impressive and well equipped kitchen/dining room, which has a comprehensive range of units, white goods and accessories and is open plan to a lovely west facing conservatory. This not only enjoys a delightful aspect across the garden to the hills but also doubles as a family or sitting area. Also off the hall is the main lounge. Like the conservatory this room enjoys the same sunny west facing aspect over the rear garden towards the hills and has the added interest of an open plan pine staircase leading to a mezzanine level above. Both the kitchen and the lounge have high vaulted ceilings. At the far end of the lounge is a bedroom and the main shower room with WC. On the mezzanine floor above the lounge an open landing leads to the second bedroom.

The final bonus is a double garage (part of a shared block) and a brick paviour driveway that provides parking for two vehicles.

The garden belonging to The Barn is one of its great strengths. To the front it is laid to lawn with a well established Magnolia and Flowering Cherry tree providing interest. The lawn itself is bordered by well maintained beds containing a variety of colourful shrubs and trees enclosed by a low brick wall and railings as well as fencing that supports climbers. Gated pathways to each side of the house lead directly into the delightful south and west facing rear garden. This is not only a sheltered sun trap but also enjoys a fine view of the Malvern Hills. Again it is mainly laid to lawn with a large paved terrace/seating area and a variety of fully stocked mature rose and shrub borders enclosed by a mixture of brick walls, hedges, trellising and fencing supporting a large number of established climbers. The rear facade of the house itself also supports an attractive climbing rose and at strategic points there is an outside tap, external lighting and power points.
