Location & Description
The property enjoys a very convenient location in the village of Powick, approximately two miles south of the well served cathedral city of Worcester, which provides a comprehensive range of shopping, recreational and sporting facilities, including premiership rugby, county cricket and horse racing. The Malvern Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, and the thriving cultural spa town of Great Malvern, are approximately four miles away. Here also are excellent shopping and recreational facilities, including Marks & Spencer, Waitrose and the renowned theatre and cinema complex. Both Worcester and Malvern can boast deserved reputations for educational facilities, notably in the private sector including The Royal Grammar and Kings Schools in Worcester and Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' Schools in Malvern. Transport communications are excellent with railway stations in both Worcester and Malvern and junction 7 of the M5 motorway, which is approximately three miles away.
Powyke House is a very fine and elegant four storey detached Grade II listed Georgian residence, dating back to the early 1800s. Over the years it has been the subject of improvement and refurbishment and now offers well presented, immaculate and flexible accommodation, which still retains its original architectural and historic heritage, blending these perfectly with more contemporary features. The main house itself has a generous floor area of almost 4,000 square feet, which includes an attractive entrance hall, cloakroom, a lounge, study, utility room, a farmhouse style kitchen (with Aga) and arguably the focal point of the ground floor, the dining/family room. At basement level are the former cellars, which have been converted into two separate play rooms and on the upper floors are five good sized bedrooms, two newly replaced shower rooms, a bathroom and a very useful attic room stretching the width of the house and providing excellent eaves storage. Separately located within the grounds is the former detached coach house, which has been imaginatively converted into a gymnasium and games room with its own en suite WC. This can double as ''work from home'' or office space when required or as a separate 'live-in' annexe. Outside the house enjoys a lovely approach through two gated entrances onto a sweeping gravel driveway that provides extensive parking for vehicles and leads to a small former garage/secure store room. The driveway then leads to one of the great strengths of Powyke House, its rear garden, which provides a perfect sheltered setting and the main feature of which are a large number of well established and impressive trees. At the far end of the garden is a large ornamental pond/small lake at the centre of which is a decked seating area and beyond which is a Petanque pitch. From the rear garden there are views over adjacent countryside.

Powyke House enjoys an attractive approach via two gated entrances leading onto a sweeping in and out gravelled driveway that encircles a large lawn and is flanked by well established shrubs, impressive trees, hedged and walled boundaries. The driveway ''spurs'' off to each side of the house. To the left it leads to a gravelled courtyard that provides further parking for vehicles and is enclosed by impressive shrubs and climbers including Hydrangea, Ivy, Rose, Wisteria and others. To the right of the house the driveway leads to a further walled gravelled parking area with a raised terrace, having a pergola above supporting a productive and mature grapevine. Here also is the original handpump for the well (no longer connected). The driveway is enclosed by high walls supporting climbers, most notably an attractive Honeysuckle. In one corner of the driveway is a secure STORE/WORKSHOP (12'7'' x 8'8''), which is ideal for storing bikes and equipment. Gated entrances to each side of the house lead to the rear garden and to a paved and cobbled terrace/barbeque area encircled by well established shrubs and trees. Here also is an external shower. A pathway leads from this terrace to a cobbled and walled seating area, from which there is a second gated entrance from the front garden. Alongside this seating area double doors lead into the former
Detached Coach House
This attractive building has been imaginatively converted into a gymnasium and games room. It also has a WC. With its large floor to ceiling glazing along one elevation, further windows, two radiators, slate tiled floors and sink, this could also potentially be the perfect space for working from home or office use or to be a self contained accommodation. The large mature and beautifully landscaped rear garden is undoubtedly one of the great features of Powyke House. It is mainly laid to lawn with a number of well established and elegant trees, shrubs and hedged boundaries. The focal point is a large ornamental pond/small lake across which a raised timber decked pathway leads to a decked seating area from which one can look over the water and towards open countryside. The pathway leads past this pond to a raised lawned area where there is a Petanque pitch. From here there are views across open countryside. At strategic points there is an external tap and lighting.
