This large, imposing and incredibly versatile family house has generous accommodation with wonderful proportions spread over 3 floors with lower cellars. Originally a smaller Timber Framed house with origins traced back to the 17th Century (although believed to be much older), it saw a substantial extension in the 18th Century which added the wonderful Georgian element, increasing the rooms proportions and turning the more humble house into the grand residence you see today. As one would expect the house displays a number of notable features from the various periods and has been awarded Grade ll listed statue due to this.
The current owners have made a plethora of improvements during their occupation both enhancing the structure with age appropriate materials, such as lime render, extensive internal insulation, bespoke joinery and handmade windows. They have also updated the style and key features such as the kitchen and bathrooms. This has left the house in an enviable condition with up to date style.
The accommodation is surprisingly spacious for a house of this period, showing the affluence of the original owners. All principal rooms are unique and enjoy fine views over the landscaped gardens to the front and wonderful views beyond. There is a good flow throughout the house making all rooms usable and ideal for entertaining or intimate family gatherings alike. The recently installed handmade wooden Kitchen is of the highest quality with integrated appliances and large central island. This room also has access to the rear courtyard ideal for practical living and outdoor entertaining with a covered area.
The first floor has the opulent principal suite with stunning beams and triple aspect windows as well as an ensuite. There are two further bedrooms each with ensuites and the family bathroom to this floor. The top floor is currently used as the children’s floor with 4 rooms, two of which are used as bedrooms with the remaining used as a TV room and study and 2 further bathrooms. The cellar is a good size and accessible from the house ideal for wine storage.
The property is situated in an elevated position within this much sought after village. Twyning has excellent facilities to include the village shop/post office, two public houses and a highly regarded Primary School. The larger Town of Tewkesbury lies approximately 4 miles South and Worcester lies approximately 15.4 miles North. In addition the Spa town of Cheltenham is 11.4 miles away which is also well served, particularly in respect of schools including Cheltenham Ladies College, Cheltenham College and Deans Close. Excellent commuter access via the M5 and M50 Motorways for access to Birmingham, The Midlands, Bristol and the South West.
The landscaped grounds were designed for minimal maintenance and maximum enjoyment. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with some herbaceous beds and small trees. There is a large patio from which to enjoy the south facing views and sunshine as well as a smaller seating area. There is also access to the parking and front pedestrian gates.
To the rear is an enclosed courtyard, with access from the front. Part of this is covered and connects to next door. It makes a lovely covered BBQ area with space for table and chairs and has direct access to the kitchen.
