Location & Description
Whitbourne Hall is a collection of houses and apartments situated within the historic and grand hall. Whitbourne Hall was designed by architect E W Elmslie and dates back to 1861 and built in a classic Greek style from where the owner Edward Bickerton Evans drew inspiration during his extensive travels around Europe. The Hall is set within rolling pastural countryside and open parkland and borders the counties of both Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Owning a property at Whitbourne Hall entitles you to use of the eight acres of formal gardens which surround the building which is managed to encourage a large variety of birds and butterflies including Ravens nesting in the nearby wood. Within the hall itself are the communal spaces which consist of grand public rooms including an impressive ballroom which sides onto and overlooks a terrace lawn and Italian garden. There is also a formal dining room, morning room and library which now also contains a Pool table and of course the Atrium with an impressive Blue glass ceiling. Surrounding the hall are two lawned areas and a sunken Italian Style garden with Yew hedging and central fountain. The original walled kitchen garden is now set up as allotments used by some residents and there are some large Victorian greenhouses. Whitbourne Hall offers ample parking for its residents and guests with each property being entitled to use two spaces on a first come first served basis. Garages are available to purchase when one becomes available. The property is situated close to the village of Whitbourne which offers a Church, Pub, Village Hall, Playing Field and a community run shop. The nearest town is Bromyard which lies approximately four miles away and offers a variety of independent shops, restaurants, takeaways and a supermarket. Further and more extensive amenities are available in the town of Malvern and the cities of Hereford and Worcester. Footpaths and bridleways criss-cross the countryside right from the doorstep of 17 Whitbourne Hall and is ideal for those who enjoy the outdoors.
