Catherton Farmhouse is Grade II listed and is believed to date from 18th Century with later extensions and boasts a host of period features including exposed wall and ceiling timbers, fireplaces and feature stone walls. The current owners have greatly enhanced the house over nearly 25 years to create a truly delightful home offering extremely flexible accommodation arranged over two floors.

The reception rooms are located off the large entrance hall which boasts a quarry tiled floor and feature fireplace housing a woodburning stove. The sitting room/study currently overlooks the front garden and neighbouring countryside, whilst the drawing room has dual aspect windows flooding the room with natural light.

The delightful country kitchen breakfast room is triple aspect, with a good variety of fitted storage units, a four oven Aga along with a back-up gas cooker. There is an adjacent utility, boot room and a cloakroom. The well-proportioned dining/garden room has a vaulted ceiling, a Clearview woodburning stove and French doors opening to the enclosed rear garden with paved patio, terrace and access to the indoor swimming pool.

On the first floor, the master bedroom suite includes a dressing room with fitted wardrobes and storage, together with an ensuite bathroom with a separate shower. There are four further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Catherton Farmhouse is an attractive family home which has been tastefully and neutrally decorated throughout. There is planning permission for an extension to the house should additional space be required.

Catherton Farmhouse enjoys a wonderfully peaceful situation, benefiting from far reaching views over its own land and beyond. Nearby is the market town of Cleobury Mortimer with a wealth of everyday facilities and amenities including independent shops, supermarkets and doctors' surgery. Locally there is a good choice of independent and state schools. A little further afield is the historic town of Ludlow which is renowned for its architecture, fine dining and vibrant festivals.

Communications in the area are excellent with the A4117 providing access to Kidderminster with train links to Birmingham and beyond. The surrounding countryside offers many recreational opportunities. For the equestrian user there is access to miles of superb outriding via the local country lanes and bridleway network. Hunting is with the Ludlow Hunt. There is regular racing at both Ludlow and Hereford as well as golf courses at Ludlow and Cleobury Mortimer.

The house is approached off a quiet country road through an entrance off a sweeping driveway enclosed by a stone wall and bordered with a variety of flowering and herbaceous beds. To the rear of the property is an enclosed garden with lawn, paved patio and separate paved terrace in front of the pool house.
