Thought to have been built in 1618 and restored in 1867, the property was purchased by James Nash during the restoration of the English monarchy under Charles II. Dr Nash came from a long established Worcestershire family whose wealth was based on the lucrative woollen industry and they owned mills along the banks of the local River Salwarpe. The property is ideally placed to access the town centre which has an eclectic mix of traditional shops, historic attractions as well as having excellent leisure facilities and schools to suit all ages. There are good transport links via rail and the motorway network to Bromsgrove, Worcester, Kidderminster, Birmingham and beyond.
This black and white Grade II listed half timber framed Manor House has been meticulously refurbished and thoughtfully renovated with the modern family in mind and is now a superb blend of old and new.
