Feckenham House in High Street, Feckenham, is pretty enough that Nikolaus Pevsner felt moved to describe it as “the best house” among its neighbours.
Quite a compliment in the picturesque Worcestershire village which boasts many timber-framed and early 19th century properties.
Feckenham House, which is Grade II listed, is early Georgian, dating from 1720. Extensive refurbishment by the current owners has left an interior that mixes fine character features and contemporary looks. There are original flagstone floors, wide oak and elm floorboards, cornicing and panelling, 12-panelled sash windows, original oak staircase and open fireplaces.
The accommodation includes a large flagstone reception hall, a dining room with open fireplace, study with windowseat and library complete with original panelling, plus an open-plan kitchen/dining/family room.
The first floor has a master suite with bedroom, shower room and dressing room. Two more double bedrooms are served by a luxurious family bathroom. The second floor features three double bedrooms plus a bath and shower room.
