A gracious and beautifully presented former rectory set in over 11 acres on the edge of the village.

Location

Elmley Castle is a delightful village set on the edge of Bredon Hill, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has many amenities including a church, primary school, an historic pub and village hall. Its old established cricket team regularly plays on the attractive cricket ground.

The market towns of Pershore and Evesham have comprehensive amenities for most everyday needs, whilst Cheltenham has more extensive shopping, leisure and educational facilities. There is an excellent mix of state and private education including schooling in Malvern, Cheltenham and Worcester. Communications are good with access to the M5 at Tewkesbury and a mainline station to London Paddington from Evesham.

Description

Church House dates from the late 19th century and was formerly the rectory. In the last ten years the property has undergone a significant refurbishment which included taking off a later addition and rebuilding a wing which provides the superb family kitchen/living area with a glazed garden room. Above this is the master bedroom suite. In typical Victorian style, the property has generous ceiling heights, sash windows, deep skirting boards and many other traditional features. The well laid out accommodation comprises a reception hall, off which are the four principal reception rooms and a cloakroom.

A passage leads between these rooms past the laundry, with second Aga, room to the living/kitchen fitted by Vale Kitchens - this includes polished granite work surfaces, four oven electric Aga with bottled gas companion, island unit and extensive floor and wall mounted cupboards. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large pantry, boot room and wet room. On the first floor the bedroom accommodation comprises principal suite with bathroom and shower room and double doors onto a balcony.

There are five further bedrooms and three bathrooms, two of which are en suite. There are extensive cellars.

Church House is approached off the village lane over a gravelled drive which leads to electric gates. The drive continues through the gates to a generous parking area beside the property. Adjacent to this is a garage block providing covered parking, garaging, workshop and boiler room. Beyond this are extensive further outbuildings currently used as kennels.

The gardens are well stocked with well maintained areas of lawn, planted borders and shrubberies and a large stone flagged terrace from where the garden room and the library open on to. Within the garden is a pretty stream and waterfall, and a ‘National Trust’ greenhouse with adjacent kitchen garden with raised beds. To the south is an attractive lake.

There are excellent equestrian facilities which include two threebay stable blocks, hay barn, seven paddocks and a Charles Britton manège with good access to the paddocks and turn outs.
