A historic Listed village house with a substantial brick and tile barn with scope for conversion occupying a generous plot.
The Malt House and the Malt Barn are situated in the attractive village of Offenham which sits on the banks of the River Avon.
The village has many period properties and excellent amenities including a primary school, parish church, post office, general stores and public houses. There is also a maypole in the older part of the village where annual Mayday celebrations are held. Offenham was founded as a monastic grange and medieval deer park by the Benedictine Abbots of Evesham Abbey in the thirteenth century and became crown land following the dissolution of the Abbey in 1540.
A Farmers' Market is held in the historic Market Square on the fourth Friday of every month. Evesham is home to many annual events including a fishing contest, a hot-air balloon festival, a regatta and a river festival which features illuminated boats. The historic market town of Evesham is centred around the River Avon with a delightful riverside park, picturesque Abbey and a wide range of shops catering for a range of day to day requirements. The larger centres of Worcester, Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon provide a wider range of shopping, cultural and educational facilities.

In addition there is a driving range at Twyford. The canoe club in nearby Fladbury caters particularly for the young and is one of the most successful in Britain. Evesham has a well regarded rowing club which holds a number of social events.
Locally there are many public footpaths and bridleways for walking and riding enthusiasts. Theatres are to be found in Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon, including the renowned Royal Shakespeare Company.
There is excellent schooling in the general area with high achieving state and private schools at Worcester, Stratford-upon-Avon, Cheltenham and Malvern. Offenham First School and Prince Henry's High School (Evesham) are both rated as 'Outstanding' by Ofsted.
The M5 motorway provides swift access to the Midlands and the South West. Railway stations are at Pershore, Evesham and Honeybourne with direct trains into London Paddington.
The Malt House possibly dates from the early sixteenth century and is Grade II Listed being of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.
This charming property is thought to have links with Evesham Abbey which controlled much of the village of Offenham until the dissolution of the Abbey in 1540.
The property is quintessentially English in appearance with its striking black and white elevations, three framed bays and detailed thatched roof.
Records show that the property was sold in 1612 and remained in the ownership of one family for nearly three centuries as the village shop, off licence, post office, brew house, dairy, bake house and livery yard.
Internal features include exposed wall and ceiling timbers, flagstone floors, original doors and oak floor boards.
On the ground floor there is a superb sitting/dining room full of character with impressive inglenook fireplaces with stone surrounds and hearths.
To the rear of the Malt House is a gravelled courtyard beyond which is the Malt Barn a substantial brick and tile barn currently with commercial use.
Potential exists to convert the barn subject to the usual planning consent. See Future Development overleaf.
Beyond the barn is a most attractive mature garden principally laid to lawn and dotted with established trees and shrubs.
The property would be of particular appeal to a broad audience of buyers including those looking for a development opportunity and those seeking a property with the potential to c reate ancillary accommodation, home office, craft workshop or studio.
This is a special opportunity to purchase a property which has remained in the same ownership for 34 years.
