Horne Hill is set in a peaceful position within the village of Broughton Hackett, which is situated to the east of the university city of Worcester and north of the Georgian riverside town of Pershore. Broughton Hackett itself has a popular public house and restaurant and a 14th century church. The nearby village of Upton Snodsbury has two public houses, a local shop and post office, primary school and church, whilst Crowle has a first school, church, parish hall and shop as well as popular dining pub the Chequers. The university and cathedral city of Worcester is within easy reach, offering excellent schooling at RGS and Kings, and a superb range of amenities including cosmopolitan shops and restaurants, the Swan Theatre and an innovative library, along with horse racing, county cricket and premiership rugby.

Horne Hill is a substantial traditional family home with a large kitchen and three good reception rooms on the ground floor, and four double bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor. The owners have undertaken some renovations to the property, installing a new central heating system and Worcester Bosch boiler complete with Hive technology, redecorating, fitting new carpets to some rooms, great new bathroom suites complete with underfloor heating, and having new Forest of Dean stone laid on the drives. There is still plenty of scope for a purchaser to improve and personalise the property. There is ample parking to the front with double and single garages, and a large landscaped garden to the rear. Beyond this is a manège of around ¼ acre and large field, along with outbuildings and a second access onto the road, having lots of potential for equestrian use.

The property is well screened from the no through road and is entered through a five bar wooden gate onto a generous Forest of Dean stone driveway leading to the front of the property. A porch leads into the dual aspect snug which has a beamed ceiling, a lovely large square bay window and a recess with a new, unused Clearview Pioneer multi fuel stove, a decorative wooden beam over and a tiled hearth.

This leads into the hall which gives access to the other reception rooms and the kitchen. The triple aspect kitchen is a good size and has wall and floor mounted units, a newly serviced and professionally cleaned double oven AGA, separate Valor electric oven and hob with extractor above, space for a dishwasher and a larder. There is a stable door to the rear porch which in turn has a stable door to the rear patio and gardens. There is a separate formal dining room with dual aspect windows.
The triple aspect sitting room has a stunning brick inglenook suitable for a log burner with a bressummer beam over, a feature stained glass window and sliding glass doors into the sun room. This room has a wood panelled ceiling, a flagstone floor, double doors and a single door to the rear patio and garden beyond. There is a further door into a large utility room which has a tiled floor and houses the new Greenstar Highflow Worcester Bosch combination boiler, has space for a washer and dryer and storage cupboards having hanging rails. The downstairs cloakroom has been newly fitted with Roca fittings including a WC and wash hand basin in a narrow vanity unit, and has a cupboard housing the fuse board.

Newly carpeted stairs lead up to the gallery landing which has a store cupboard and gives access to the four bedrooms, family bathroom and cloakroom. The dual aspect master bedroom has an excellent newly installed en suite shower room which is fully tiled with underfloor heating. The new Roca suite comprises a WC, wash hand basin in a vanity unit and a curved shower cubicle with a Mira shower, and there is a heated towel rail and a heated illuminated mirror. Off the bedroom is a lovely dual aspect dressing room which has a good range of fitted wardrobes, loft access and views over the garden.

Bedrooms two, three and four are all double bedrooms, with bedrooms three and four having fitted wardrobes. The newly refurbished family bathroom is fully tiled with underfloor heating. The new Roca suite includes a large bath tub with shower attachment, wash hand basin with cupboard below, and a shower cubicle with a Mira shower. There is a heated towel rail, electric shaver point and a heated illuminated mirror. There is a separate cloakroom with WC next door.

Outside, the front drive has recently been re-laid with Forest of Dean stone and provides parking for numerous vehicles, leading to a large double garage and a timber single garage. The double garage has a full length electric up and over door and a small timber conservatory to the side with a tiled roof.

The gardens and grounds extend to some 5.455 acres. There is a large landscaped garden to the rear with lawned areas, mature trees, shrubs, bushes and plants, as well as a feature ornamental pond and a rear patio. There is a small vegetable bed next to an old greenhouse and a timber framed outbuilding with a concrete base.

Beyond the garden is a large turning and parking area which has recently been re-laid with Forest of Dean stone. This continues onto a very useful secondary access onto the road, alongside which runs a coppice. Adjacent to the parking area is a manège of around 1000 sq m which is in need of some attention. There are two lean-to concrete outbuildings with corrugated metal roofs and a large barn containing stables and a workshop with three phase power. Beyond this is a large field which runs down to a brook. All of the outbuildings are in need of some attention but there is plenty of scope for improvement.

Services: Mains water and electricity are connected. LPG fired central heating & Aga. Private drainage. There is fibre broadband within the village.

Local Authority: Wychavon District Council Band G

Agent’s Note: A public footpath runs through the coppice which runs alongside the secondary access drive. The vendors have installed a new fence to separate the footpath from the property.
