Location & Description

Oakfields is an elegant and attractive four bedroomed detached house situated in the charming village of Defford which benefits from a local farm shop, church, public house and a village hall. Approximately five miles away is the historic town of Upton upon Severn situated on the banks of the River Severn which has a good range of shops as well as Post Office, bank, medical centre, dental surgery, library and churches. Upton has a marina as well as Jazz, Folk and Blues Festivals. The town of Pershore is only three miles away and caters for primary and secondary education. There is easy access to the centres of Worcester, Malvern, Tewkesbury and Evesham. The M5/M50 motorway junction is approximately two miles distant bringing The Midlands, South West and South Wales all within reasonable commuting distance. There are mainline railway stations at Malvern, Ledbury, Pershore and Worcestershire Parkway with connections to Worcester, Birmingham, London Paddington, Hereford and South Wales. The fast train from Worcestershire Parkway is just 30 minutes to Birmingham New Street

The house is situated within heart of the Worcestershire countryside with stunning views in all directions. It has been subject to a programme of renovation by the current owners which includes the refurbishment from a set of semi-detached properties into one family home. This was done by carefully configuring the upstairs of the property, repositioning the main staircase to the first floor and opening up the majority of the kitchen/dining area. The result is a fine family home that offers versatile accommodation. The property further benefits from the use of three outside stores which also offer the potential to be converted into office space or annexe accommodation (subject to the relevant planning consents potentially within Permitted Developments). One of the main selling feature of this property is the pleasant rural setting that the house occupies with a wrap around garden that offers multiple areas from which to enjoy this setting. There is a lovely walk directly from the house down to the River Avon. Also, Arden sailing club is nearby, where sailing, paddle boarding or canoeing hobbies can be pursued The house has two access points, set behind a hedge to provide privacy and allowing for parking for several vehicles. There is a gravel path that leads to the front door and continues to the rear of the house. The accommodation in more detail comprises:
