Location & Description
Swan House is well placed within the centre of the charming west Worcestershire village of Alfrick, approximately six miles from Great Malvern, eight miles from the city of Worcester and seven miles from Bromyard. The village itself has a thriving community with an award winning Community Village Shop and Post Office (run by local volunteers) providing gourmet and everyday supplies, and a Village hall and church. For those who enjoy the outdoors and walking, the village has four nature/wildlife reserves including The Knapp, Crews Hill Wood, Ravens Hill and Blackhouse Wood. There are also two farmers markets within the local vicinity, one at The Talbot in Knightwick and the other at The Fold in Bransford. The Fox Inn is also nearby at Lulsley. There are local bus services laid on to provide access to local primary schools at Suckley and Leigh Sinton and secondary schools in Malvern and Worcester. Transport communications are also good with Junction 7 of the M5 motorway, south of Worcester, being within reasonable striking distance and there are mainline railway stations in both Great Malvern and Worcester.
Swan House has a fascinating history, originally dating back to the 1850's, when it was built as part of a farm which specialised in local hops and cherries. Later it was both part of a farm, and an Inn, and from 1948 on purely a Public House serving the local village. The property has been part of the home of our vendor's family for over 50 years and they have seen it transform from a local public house into a much loved family home. Whilst there are aspects of the house that would benefit from some improvement, it is worth noting that all the windows to the ground floor have been double glazed within the last few years but there still remains an abundance of exciting potential for someone to really make it their own. A great strength of the house is its position, which provides a wonderful outlook from every window across open countryside and towards the Malvern Hills beyond. The bright and airy spacious accommodation to the ground floor includes a large sitting room with a feature open fireplace and an open plan dining kitchen. To the first floor there are two double bedrooms, a further single bedroom, family bathroom and separate WC. With so much on offer an inspection is highly recommended to appreciate the potential that this property provides.
