Location & Description
The delightful village of Uckinghall, situated in the west of the county of Worcestershire, just over 3 miles from the nearby town of Upton upon Severn, 11 miles from Malvern and 16 miles from Cheltenham.

Offering charming and characterful accommodation with a wealth of period features, it truly is a wonderful home. The accommodation is neatly arranged over two floors and is approached through an attractive entrance porch and hallway with sitting room to the one side and drawing room/study to the other side. Both of these impressively spacious rooms offer exposed beams and attractive fireplaces. The hallway continues, leading through to the spacious and light farmhouse breakfast kitchen and dining area to the rear, with windows overlooking the lawned garden. The scullery and WC also lead off from the hallway, alongside the useful convenience of a walk-in pantry/larder. On the first floor, the small galleried landing offers an opportunity to appreciate the surrounding countryside views from it's window to the front. Both of the larger bedrooms are positioned to the front of the property also, with the cosy, charming third bedroom overlooking the side of the house. The family bathroom offers both a bath and large corner shower. Outside, a block paved shared driveway to the side of the house offers vehicular parking and gated access through to the lawned rear garden with small vegetable garden, LOG CABIN and POLYTUNNEL. From here, a further gate leads through to the more extensive gardens and land and a range of outbuildings including FOUR BAY DUTCH BARN, TWO BAY GARAGE/WORKSHOP, TIMBER FRAMED BARN AND MONOPITCH BRICK AND STEEL INFILL.
