Eden Grange is situated on the edge of the rural village of Newnham Bridge, which sits in the delightful Teme valley. Eden Grange looks over the valley and the village of Eastham with its 12th century church. The valley boasts its own micro-climate, the result of which is a proliferation of orchards and fields of hops and historically it was known for growing cherries. Driving through the valley, one is welcomed by the great many pastoral scenes in this beautiful part of Elgar's country.
The nearby market town of Tenbury Wells which was aptly described by Queen Victoria as "My little town in the orchard" hosts an annual mistletoe festival, sizeable agricultural show and also offers a range of everyday amenities. Both Leominster and Ludlow are within about 15 miles and offer excellent shopping; Ludlow being somewhat of a mecca for food lovers, while for more extensive shopping and business needs Malvern, Worcester and Hereford are nearby and also offer a choice of excellent private schools.
For sporting enthusiasts there is horse racing, rugby and cricket in Worcester, golf courses in Tenbury Wells and Cleobury Mortimer and the oldest motorsport venue in the world, Shelsley Walsh, is nearby while Hampton Court, Stokesay Castle and Berrington Hall give the opportunity for interesting days out.
Eden Grange looks out southwards over the Teme Valley giving pleasing views from many rooms of the house. The River Teme is a popular fishing region as well as being a spot for canoeing activities.
Built about seven years ago on the site of a previous house, Eden Grange takes advantage of the wonderful views and setting.
Eden Grange is a well designed contemporary house with a balance of well proportioned reception rooms enjoying high ceilinged rooms appropriate for formal entertaining, and a practical range of rooms to the rear of the house, accessed through its own back door, allowing for the practicalities of modern family living. Much of the house benefits from underfloor heating.
Adjacent to the house is an attractive walled garden with raised beds for vegetable production and a secondary dwelling, known as The Lodge.
Set within its own grounds of 20 acres the house is immediately surrounded by its own gardens which are bordered by mature orchards to the east and west. Surrounding the gardens and orchards is a ring fence of pasture and the whole is positioned on the south facing bank of the Teme valley.
Mirroring the flexible accommodation of the house, Eden Grange has a range of outbuildings that could be converted to serve a number of uses (subject to the relevant planning permissions) while the orchards and pasture could be put to either equestrian uses or cultivated as a smallholding.
The house is approached by a gravel drive that runs through the formal gardens. A high ceilinged entrance hall leads to the majority of the well laid accommodation. To the left is a versatile study and a large drawing room with a log burning stove and bay window. This leads into a well constructed conservatory beyond which is a terrace bordered with a south facing wall that is covered with wisteria and climbing roses. A dining room to the rear of the house is well lit by two large windows. This range of rooms offers ample space for year round entertaining that makes the most of the outstanding views.
To the right of the hallway is a kitchen which has been fitted to a very high standard with oak cabinets, fitted Welsh dresser, oak corner bench and built-in dining area, and enjoys heat from a gas fired Redfyre range with an integrated electric hob. The kitchen is served by a good sized pantry as well as a WC, a utility and laundry room. An internal window from the kitchen through to the laundry room allows views up the drive over the formal gardens. The double garage can also be accessed via the utility.
The stairs lead up to a large gallery landing. The main bedroom suite enjoys the views while the dressing room overlooks the walled kitchen garden and an exceptionally well fitted bathroom with two-ended bath, shower, WC and bidet. There are a further four double bedrooms served by a family bathroom.
At the end of the landing is a series of two smaller rooms, which the current owners are using as a gym and a salon, the gym enjoying a steam shower, and the salon area having plumbing for a basin. These two rooms could easily be used either as a nursery or potentially converted to provide en suite bathrooms to bedrooms three and four. There is also a large loft space which, subject to the relevant planning requirements, could offer potential for conversion.
The Lodge at Eden Grange can be accessed through its own driveway leading to a wicker gate and a formally laid out front garden with fruit trees. The accommodation in the Lodge extends to two double bedrooms, a large family bathroom / wet room, living room and kitchen. French doors lead from the living room to a terrace above the walled garden, which enjoys the views to the south and the privacy of the walled garden. The Lodge could, with the appropriate planning permission, be converted to a number of uses , or alternatively provide additional accommodation for family, guests, staff or paying customers.
To the front of Eden Grange is an enclosed formal garden enjoying many shrubs with a series of pathways running organically between the beds. A traditional agricultural barn is situated above a croquet lawn at the northern end of the enclosed formal gardens, providing further storage and options for an outside entertaining.
This formal garden leads to a geometrically planned walled garden which is south facing. The raised beds of the walled garden have been the source of much of the produce for the kitchen of Eden Grange. The beds around the walled garden are planted with a variety of fruit trees including fig, apple, tayberry and cherry trees.
Eden Grange extends to about 20 acres which surrounds the house and gardens. Much of the land is open pasture, although a good portion of it has been planted as orchards with the northern edge planted with conifers to provide shelter and privacy from the road. The gardens and orchards boast numerous fruits including damsons, mirabelles, plums, cider apples, cooking apples, eating apples and quinces, as well as many silver birches and other decorative trees within the orchard. Tenbury Wells is well known for its mistletoe festival and growing in many of the trees at Eden Grange is a bountiful supply of mistletoe. Damsons were traditionally grown here for the production of dye, which went to the carpet making industries.
The surrounding pasture runs down into the valley and all fields benefit from piped water supply and stockproof fencing. To the west of Eden Grange house is another orchard. Eden Grange also benefits from its own 44' deep well.
Take the A456 from Kidderminster and after approximately 14 miles and before descending into the village of Newnham Bridge, you will find Eden Grange on the left-hand side. Eden Grange is approached through an imposing red brick gateway.
