EQUESTRIAN - Crows Nest Farm is a detached residence standing in over 27 acres and offering uninterrupted views across surrounding countryside towards the Malvern Hills. Constructed from local Cotswold stone with a slate tiled roof the property is topped by a charming bell tower with a pull cord in the kitchen enabling the user to summon family and friends from the farthest corners of the estate. The ground floor accommodation is principally comprised of an entrance hall, a sitting room with bay window and wood-burning stove, a study, a dining room that opens to the kitchen/breakfast room complete with AGA and limestone flooring and a conservatory. From the entrance hall, a spiral staircase leads down to the family room that has a door opening to the garden. There are five bedrooms on the first floor served by three bathrooms, one of which is en suite whilst a utility room, pantry and two cloakrooms complete the accommodation.
To the front of the house, there is ample parking for several vehicles in addition to the triple bay car port. A two storey stone Coach House has large double doors at ground level with the second floor being accessed via an external stone staircase. A useful workshop is situated close to the main house. Gardens wrapping around the side and rear of the house are mainly laid to lawn.
Equestrian Facilities: Our clients have been keen and competitive horsemen for many years and the facilities and layout of the estate reflects this passion. From the parking area in front of the house, a five-bar gate opens to a block-paved courtyard alongside the stable block which offers 7 loose boxes and a tack room. A track from here leads to the 40m x 20m arena constructed with a fibre sand surface. A large steel-sided barn alongside the track is ideal for hay storage. The land is in two blocks either side of the lane leading to the house with a small copse to one side. Water is provided to all areas and there is direct access to bridleways.
