Upper Beeches is a sizeable and versatile modern family home complimented by good ancillary accommodation and leisure facilities.

The house has Cotswold stone elevations under pitched tiled roof with attractive stone mullioned bay windows with balconies above.

The ground floor accommodation features a large reception hall with seating area enjoying a dual aspect. To the opposite end is a study. The drawing room has substantial proportions with impressive stone fireplace and projecting bay window with French doors leading to the front terrace. Double doors lead through to the dining room which also features a large bay window and French doors give access to the side terrace. A half-height glazed partition with single door leads through to the family room which features built in book shelving and side windows providing good natural light. An open layout leads through to the breakfast room and bespoke kitchen with a wealth of floor and wall mounted cupboards, Falcon range and superb lantern roof. Double French doors lead from the kitchen to a courtyard area. Situated off the kitchen is a utility room and a rear corridor gives access back to the reception hall and guest cloak room.

The first floor has a large master bedroom with en suite bathroom. There are superb views from the balcony across to the Malvern Hills. The guest bedroom also features a balcony and en suite shower room. Two further bedrooms have a “Jack and Jill”shower room facility and there is a further bedroom and family bathroom.

Upper Beeches features two ancillary buildings: the Cottage, which is situated in an elevated location behind the house with bedroom, sitting room, bathroom and kitchenette and the garage building with apartment above which features an open plan living area, bedroom and bathroom.

Upper Beeches is accessed via an initial shared tarmac driveway which splits and a private driveway leads up to the house and ancillary accommodation.
