Situation

Evesbatch is a pretty rural hamlet on the Worcestershire/Herefordshire border and is noted as the smallest parish in the Frome Valley, originating around the original Manor House, Evesbatch Court, with the village Church believed to date from c. 1300’s. The surrounding landscape is defined by undulating countryside, orchards and hop fields. The property enjoys a peaceful and tranquil setting yet is very accessible for the local towns with the larger cities of Worcester and Hereford only a short drive away.

Longbarns

* Longbarns was historically a cluster of traditional farm buildings, part of a farmstead tied to the Evesbatch Court Estate Manor House, formerly owned by the Cadbury family. Converted into a dwelling during the 1980's, this fabulous property provides a wonderfully spacious home with very flexible accommodation. * The entrance is via a central courtyard with attractive box-hedging, cobbled pathways, and a lovely urn-style water feature, around which most of the property is situated. A pair of attractively carved wooden front doors open to the spacious reception/dining hall, with its vaulted ceiling, exposed stone walls and inglenook fireplace inset with wood-burning stove. Attractive, re-claimed maple flooring complements this fabulous space which is perfect for more formal entertaining or for special occasions. * Leading off the dining hall is the split-level drawing room, also with inglenook fireplace with a wood-burner set on a stone hearth. This very comfortable, (truncated)

Longbarns (Continued)

* Adjacent is the informal sitting room, with wood-burner, which opens to the spacious conservatory, with direct access to the garden. The country-style kitchen/breakfast room is next to these rooms. * The welcoming Aga kitchen is the heart of this lovely home and is complemented by hand-painted, fitted cupboards, providing ample storage, and attractive granite work-surfaces. The kitchen benefits from a large central island, 4-oven Aga with attached electric module and integrated appliances. * A fully-glazed gable elevation affords super views over the garden, paddock and lake, with distant views of The Malvern Hills. * The very generously proportioned main bedroom suite is situated on the ground floor and is accessed off the sitting room. This super room has a vaulted ceiling, built-in wardrobes, and a separate dressing room with built-in storage. A spacious en-suite with free-standing bath and walk-in shower complement this fine room.

Longbarns (Continued)

* The “West Wing” leads off the dining hall and hosts four large, double bedroom suites, all with recently fitted en-suite bathrooms. Also located in this Wing is a self-contained annexe with open plan kitchen/living room and double bedroom/- with bathroom on the mezzanine floor. A great space for dependent or independent family or friends. * The property has a wealth of attractive features, including exposed beams and trusses, stone walls, and wooden floorboards. Many of the rooms benefit from vaulted ceilings which add to the feeling of space and airiness throughout this super home

The Outside

* Longbarns is situated in a picturesque and quiet village location, surrounded by its own gardens and grounds, which provide a secluded and private setting. * Accessed off a quiet village lane, a pair of wrought-iron gates lead to a generous parking area in front of the garages. A second, rear entrance provides access to the “West Wing”, garden and land. * The beautifully presented gardens and grounds are very well established and provide a wealth of interest, from an interestingly planted, quite architectural avenue of ornamental plum trees to attractive and calming water features. An ornamental pond with foot bridge extends beyond the large patio and gravelled terrace, located South-West of the property with the lawned gardens beyond.

The Outside (Continued)

* The gardens have been very well laid out and are interspersed with a variety of established specimen trees, rose gardens, vegetable garden and decked walkways, with several seating areas located throughout. There is a new discovery around each corner of this enticing outdoor space. * An attractive Orangery is located by the entrance courtyard and lends itself to a variety of uses and has been re-roofed in the recent past. * From the rear drive there is access to a detached double car port with ample external parking. This entrance gives vehicular access to the garden and the paddock land. A gateway by this entrance also links to the front entrance and stables.

The Outside (Continued)

* The pastureland lies south of the garden and runs down to the fishing lake, which was built some 50 years’ ago. The lake is well stocked with carp and other coarse species, with the site being managed in hand for Evesbatch Old Lake, via is a separate access track to the edge of the property which leads to the lake, so there is no adverse impact to the main house from 3rd party use. * There is a further access to this property via a stoned track over which there is a right of access. This easement provides another access point to the property from the village road.
