Pleck House is an impressive period property, centrally located within the popular village of Hartlebury, set back from the road within its own glorious gardens and grounds and offering fantastic views towards the Abberley Hills to the rear.

The property is ideal for the larger or growing family having well-proportioned bedrooms, multiple receptions rooms, parking for numerous vehicles and generous well established gardens.
An entrance porch with original parquet flooring has a butler's door leading into a useful storage cupboard and two doors leading into the reception hall. The attractive parquet flooring continues into the grand reception hall which has delightful cornicing and arched sash windows along with a wood burner. Located off the reception hall

The reception hall leads into the bright and spacious drawing room which has a delightful bay window with seating overlooking the gardens and views beyond. There is a central original fireplace with
marble surround and patio doors leading out to the garden. Further reception rooms include a sitting room with three sash windows, cornicing, an ornamental ceiling rose and an electric fire, a large
dual aspect dining room and a well-proportioned hobby room. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a good range of units along with an electric oven and has plumbing for a dishwasher and space for a fridge/freezer. There is ample space for a dining table and the original butlers bells remain. A rear hall provides access to a cloakroom, WC, a well fitted butler's pantry with sink, a store room and utility room with additional store and pantry. There is access to one of two cellars

From the reception hall a large oak staircase leads to the first floor landing which has a central corridor providing access to the master bedroom, which has fitted cupboards, a bay window providing terrific views across the garden and countryside towards the Abberley Hills and an adjoining dressing room. Also at this end of the landing are two large double bedrooms, one with fitted cupboards and original fireplace and both with dual aspect windows. There are five further
