Built in the 1920's, Irish Meadow has belonged to the same family for the last sixty years. It stands in an elevated position sitting well within its grounds and enjoying lovely surrounding views as far as the Welsh hills on one side and the Malverns on the other. The whole site is over two acres and the paddock which is relatively level is about 1.25 acres.
A porch, glazed on two sides, leads into an impressive reception hall. The elegant drawing room has with a huge open fireplace and wood surround which is a focal point. This is a particularly bright room having two large south facing windows looking over the gardens to the paddock. There is a formal dining room as well as a breakfast/living room which has the original fire range and also includes a large dresser with cupboards and glass cabinets above. The kitchen has ample base and wall units and there is a utility room leading into a ground floor WC.
A conservatory runs nearly the full width of the rear of the house from which there are views across the gardens to the countryside.
Stairs rise to a spacious landing. The two main bedrooms both have their own dressing rooms. There is a further large double bedroom and a single bedroom. The family bathroom has a bath and wash basin and there is a separate WC. From the landing there is access to a second staircase leading to the top floor which at one time had been occupied as a separate small flat. It includes two rooms and an area which could house a kitchen as access to the plumbing is still available.
The gardens and grounds are delightful and a special feature. Extensive lawns and various flowerbeds contain a host of mature colourful shrubs, bushes and plants. Throughout the gardens are numerous ornamental trees. There is a timber summerhouse which faces south and has its own decking and terrace. The formal gardens are separated from the paddock by a fully stocked and mature shrub garden. The paddock is relatively level and has a stable (requiring a new roof) and a separate gate into it off the roadside. A drive from the road leads up to a large parking and turning area. There is a single garage behind which is a brick built outbuilding and adjoining lean-to store.
