For the cultured there is an excellent theatre and cinema and for the sporty there is a swimming pool, leisure centre and several sports clubs. More comprehensive facilities can be found in the cathedral cities of Worcester and Hereford where there are extensive shopping and recreational facilities including professional rugby at Sixways, county cricket in the setting of Worcester Cathedral and horse racing on the banks of the River Severn. Excellent schooling is available from both the private and state sectors including the Royal Grammar School and Kings School in Worcester, the renowned Malvern colleges and two preparatory schools in nearby Colwall. The property also has wonderful access to a number of footpaths and bridleways which meander across the wonderful countryside.

Description Sandlin House is a beautiful period home with Georgian front elevation. The older part of the house to the rear dates back to around the 15th and 16th centuries and has beautiful timber framing with wonderful exposed beams. The property stands proudly at the end of a pretty sweeping gravelled drive that leads through the established gardens to the front door. The property has an open porch to the front and from here a large part glazed Georgian front door leads into the house where the accommodation briefly consists of:

• A generous reception hall which has lovely cornicing, wide skirting and decorative architraving to the internal doors. The first floor can be accessed from the reception hall up a sweeping mahogany hand railed staircase. The reception hall gives access to:
• A generous drawing room with an impressive semi circular bay window with three sash windows and French window to its centre. The drawing room has decorative cornicing as well as an impressive open fireplace with a decorative surround and club fender.
• The dining room has a triple sash window bay and the fireplace also has a decorative surround and matching alcove with shelving and cupboards beneath.
• The sitting room, which is currently used as a study, sits at the centre of the house and showcases lovely exposed timbers and beams with an open fireplace and glazed door to the walled kitchen garden.
• Adjacent to the sitting room is the large family kitchen with Aga, quarry tiled floor, natural wood units and doors through to the boiler/utility room as well as a door to the rear hall. Back stairs are also accessed from here which lead to the annexe and an open rear lobby.
• To the first floor is a large galleried landing with sash window that overlooks the front garden and gives open views towards the Malverns and other surrounding hills.
• The wonderful master bedroom offers wonderful views to the landscaped gardens through bay windows and also benefits from a dressing room and en suite bathroom.
