Coming complete with more than 10 acres of gardens and grounds, this Worcestershire farmhouse offers the potential for either growing produce or perhaps keeping animals.
The land is already productive – it has a vegetable patch and a raised orchard area that is home to a selection of ancient pear trees.
Woodhall Farm House is a part-timbered Grade II listed residence that sits in a rural spot near the village of Wichenford, between Martley and Lower Broadheath.
A timber field gate leads from the private drive to the road onto a long gravelled driveway serving a good-size parking area in front of the open-fronted garage.
A large panelled door reveals the squarely proportioned reception hall with quarry tiled flooring. It leads to the inner hall which acts as a hub for the ground floor accommodation.
Impressive period features include ceiling beams, original braced doors, sash windows – some with shutters – and fireplaces of various styles.
To one end of the hallway there is a drawing room with windows to two sides, flagstone flooring and an Adam style surround fireplace and multi-fuel burning stove. In between this and the reception hall is a useful study, with a further open fireplace.
At the other end of the hall there is a family room or games room with a boot room and toilet. There is also a cosy sitting room with views to two sides and multi-fuel burning stove. In the middle of them (and accessed from the sitting room) is one of three staircases to the first floor.
The second staircase is between the drawing room and a cloakroom.
The kitchen/breakfast room is particularly impressive, being home to a comprehensive range of floor and wall classic style units with granite work surface over and a brick fireplace recess featuring a four-oven LPG Aga. In the slate covered floor there is an illuminated brick wall covered by a glass panel.
Integral appliances include an electric single oven and hob, along with a wine cooler, dishwasher and space for an American style fridge/freezer. Exposed ceiling trusses and timber framing to some of the walls add character.
A rear hallway has doors to a cloakroom with toilet and basin and to a utility room.
At the end of this hallway is the formal dining room which also has views to two sides. It has a large brick open fireplace featuring a heavy bressumer beam over, plus a partially concealed brick staircase which goes up to the second bedroom.
Upstairs there are seven bedrooms.
The master has an en suite with shower, basin and toilet. Bedroom two has its own door to the family bathroom which can also be accessed from the hall. This has both a stand alone roll top bath, a large walk-in shower, a toilet and basin.
There is another bathroom with P-shaped bath, toilet and basin between one of the staircases and bedroom six.
Beneath the house there are cellars.
In the grounds are a number of stores and a timber-framed, open-fronted triple garage with hard standing area.
Woodhall Farmhouse has mature gardens to the front and side which are mainly laid to lawn with a number of planted borders interspersed with specimen trees. A brick path leads to a terraced area.
At the back of the house is a walled courtyard which provides access to the brick outbuildings. There is a vegetable garden, fenced off lawned area with a large oak tree and the orchard.
Pastureland makes up the rest of the grounds.
The village of Wichenford is surrounded by Worcestershire countryside. It and the other nearby villages offer excellent day to day facilities. The popular centre of Ombersley, which has a more extensive range of shops and pubs, is six miles away. Renowned independent schooling is available in Worcester, Malvern and nearby Abberley Hall.
