It is easy to see what architectural period influenced this rather grand-looking house in Oreton, near Kidderminster.

Called Withies Gate, its pedimented porch supported by columns and matching sash-style windows all speak to the fact that it takes its cues from the Georgian era.

It is, however, a modern build and is packed with high tech systems for everything from the CCTV to intruder alarms to TV and computer points.

Boasting more than 5,000sq ft of space, it features three reception rooms, six bedrooms and even a guest/staff annexe.

Living areas include a high ceilinged drawing room with large bay window overlooking the paddocks and garden, a dining room and a family room.

It has a hand-made fitted kitchen with breakfast room off. Together they cover 33ft by 26ft and make a superb space for entertaining.

The kitchen has built-in appliances, an island unit and granite work tops. A separate utility room has matching units.

On the first floor are the main bedrooms and the annexe. This can be used as one complete floor or it can be sectioned off and the annexe used independently, as there are two staircases.

The master and the guest bedrooms both have their own en suite bathrooms . The other three are served by a large family bathroom which has both a bath and separate shower.

The apartment has its own high spec kitchen with integrated appliances and breakfast bar, large living room, a bedroom and a bathroom with separate shower.

Entrance to the 2.75 acres of grounds is through electric gates onto a gravelled drive with extensive parking to the front of the house.

There is more parking to the side where there is also an integrated double garage.

At the back, a south west facing patio is bordered by mature and established planting.

There are two separate paddocks, one which can be accessed off New Road and one that can be accessed from the front of the house.

Withies Gate is in the village of Oreton which has its own school. Not far away is the attractive town of Cleobury Mortimer where a range of service and amenities can be found.

Ludlow lies to the west and is famed for its castle, vibrant festivals, Michelin-starred restaurant and fascinating architecture .

The A4117 can be picked up a short distance away from the house, linking to Kidderminster and the West Midlands beyond.
