Full description

The Gables is an exceptional Grade II listed detached 4-bedroom family home dating back to the 1600’s. It has a separate self-contained barn conversion attached to the main building, which could be used for family and friends, or operated as a separate rented accommodation or possibly used for any number of home-business functions. The entire property is immaculately presented both inside and out and has retained a wealth of original features including stunning original wooden beams and custom windows throughout. This property has been superbly maintained and is set away from the hustle and bustle in the most private, beautifully matured landscaped gardens.

A unique opportunity to acquire this most desirable of properties nestled in the sought-after hamlet of Uphampton. Just a short distance from Ombersley, it provides all the benefits of countryside living, whilst still having excellent commuting links and enjoys an extensive range of local amenities.

The M5 motorway is just 4 miles away and the city of Worcester only 7.5 miles. There are train services from both Droitwich and Kidderminster with direct routes into London and Birmingham, whilst the A449 gives fast access to the Worcestershire and Shropshire countryside only minutes away.

Approached via a gated, gravel driveway, there are two entrances to the property. The primary entrance is a vestibule to the side of the house with stone steps leading up to a solid oak front door accessing the main Reception Hall. The second entrance leads to a stable door to the Kitchen with an additional door to the Annexe.
The main Reception Hall has a feature exposed stone wall, a quarry tiled floor which continues through most of the ground floor living areas and stripped wooden doors leading off to the Lounge and the Dining Room.
The large Kitchen/Family Breakfast Room has bespoke fitted wall and base units from Harvey Jones with a matching central island finished with solid oak butcher’s block worktop, all completed in an elegant French grey finish. With a Belfast sink and granite work surfaces to compliment the overall high-end finish of the room, this is a wonderful family kitchen. The appliances include a large four-oven AGA, a free-standing Bosch dishwasher and built-in fridge and freezer. The ceilings retain their original timber beams and are adorned with a plethora of useful spotlighting. The flooring has been finished with a high-grade engineered oak.
Solid oak steps lead from the Kitchen into the Hallway where doors take you to the Study and the spacious Sitting Room.
The central feature of the Sitting Room is the impressive Inglenook fireplace with multi-place burner and a quarry-tiled hearth. Three windows allow plenty of light making the room feel bright throughout the day, and then, with the fire roaring, cosy at night. The retained original beams add a little drama and create that quintessentially distinguished country feel to the Sitting Room.
Currently used as a Study, the room adjacent to the Sitting Room has the same finishes with front views across the property. This room makes for a spacious Study but is sizable and could easily be used as an alternative Dining Room.
The main Dining Room also features a beautiful Inglenook fireplace housing a small multi-burner. There are two bespoke windows with wonderful views looking out onto the beautiful landscaped gardens. On the far side of the room is a traditional oak door that leads out onto the patio area and to the garden beyond.
Two stunning solid oak stairways will take you to the first-floor accommodation, one from the Hallway beside the Kitchen and the other from the Dining Room.
On the first floor, accessed via the second flight of stairs from the study is an elegant and spacious Master Bedroom Suite blessed with a duel aspect that provides an airy and bright feel to the room. It has fitted wardrobes and attractive exposed beams.
The family Bathroom is particularly spacious with exposed beams. It is equipped with a luxurious double shower, an oak pedestal with bowl and beautiful oak-effect flooring.
The Bedroom over the Kitchen, accessed from the first flight of stairs beside the Study, is extremely spacious with two Dormer windows with solid oak cills. With extensive storage in the eaves and ceiling spotlights this room feels even bigger. It is complimented further with an Ensuite Bathroom which houses a corner bath.
A further Bedroom can be found off the stairs from the Dining room. This is yet another bright and airy room and has Ensuite facilities.
The adjoining Barn has recently been converted and is a self-contained annexe with Kitchen, Shower Room and Utility on the ground floor, and a Lounge area featuring another Inglenook fireplace as a centre piece leading through to a double Bedroom, all completed with a contemporary finish in contrast to the traditional main house. Leading from the utility of the annex is access to a useful double garage.
To the outside of the property are delightful mature landscaped gardens to both the front and rear aspects. The front garden being laid to lawn with shrub beds and borders, a 'well' house, and a large gated gravel driveway providing off road parking and a large turning area. To the rear of the property is a larger lawn with mature shrub beds and borders. This exceptional rear garden has a sunny west facing aspect with a mature and manicured landscape befitting of this beautiful property. An ornamental fishpond, paved patio areas, a log store, green house, BBQ and productive kitchen garden complete this wonderful family space.
