Location & Description

Stonehouse Farm is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the edge of the popular village of Mathon. The village lies on the borders of Herefordshire and Worcestershire in the heart of unspoilt countryside and within reach of numerous footpaths, bridleways and walks including the range of the Malvern Hills, which are only a short drive away. Mathon has a Parish Hall and is 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 range of amenities. There are mainline railway stations in Great Malvern, Colwall and Ledbury and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about eleven miles.

Stonehouse Farm is an exceptional country home believed to date back in parts to the 17th century. The property occupies a delightful position surrounded by open countryside and enjoys fantastic far reaching views toward the Malvern Hills. The property has been a much loved family home for over 20 years for the current owners. It has been superbly maintained and the current owners have invested heavily in upgrading all aspects including a new oil fired central heating system, rewiring, newly laid solid oak flooring and replacement windows to the front of the property. There are a number of noteworthy features including extensive exposed timbering, attractive fireplaces in both principal reception rooms and cottage latch doors. The accommodation extends to approximately 3280 sq ft and is arranged over four floors. The property is approached at ground floor level with an open porch leading to a dining room, farmhouse style breakfast kitchen with walk in pantry/utility room, drawing room enjoying a triple aspect, study and cloakroom. On the first floor a half-landing leads to the master bedroom.

On the third floor there are two further double bedrooms served by a bathroom. On the lower ground floor there are TWO CELLAR ROOMS, both with good head height, providing useful additional storage space. Outside, Stonehouse Farm is approached by a gravelled driveway providing ample off road parking and in turn leads to a carport and a garage. There is also a covered passage with an external staircase leading to a HOME OFFICE located above the garage. The grounds belonging to Stonehouse Farm are a true delight and comprise a formal garden with manicured lawns, small orchard, vegetable patch, games field and TWO PADDOCKS.
