Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A Grade II listed country home full of character and original features, around 1852 sq ft. Including outbuildings with potential STPP and around 9. 8 acres.

Moat Farm is a characterful period property believed to date back to the early 17th century with later extensions creating a practical family home, which retains many original features but has been updated sympathetically with a contemporary kitchen and bathroom. Period features abound throughout including wide oak doors, inglenook fireplaces with an original bread oven in the sitting room, lots of wonderful exposed beams, timbers and trusses, and a carved doorway of particular note in the sitting room. The house is peacefully situated at the end of a no through lane and has superb rural views over open countryside and towards ancient woodland at Crowle. There is a generous garden which is mainly laid to lawn, an orchard and three fields, two of which have vehicular access, in all amounting to around 9.8 acres.

Moat Farm is set in a peaceful position at the end of a no through lane on the outskirts of the village of Tibberton, with views over surrounding countryside towards ancient woodland at Crowle. Tibberton has an Ofsted Outstanding rated first school, church and two public houses. Crowle has a shop with a post office and tea room, an Ofsted Good rated first school, church, village hall with playground and playing field as well as the popular dining pub the Chequers. The surrounding area is ideal for walking and horse-riding, with nearby access to the Worcester and Birmingham canal. The cathedral city of Worcester is within easy reach, offering 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.

Pupils from Tibberton and Crowle first schools move onto Pinvin middle school and then high schools in Droitwich or Pershore. There is excellent independent schooling at RGS and Kings in Worcester.

Planning permission was granted in 2012 for a Single storey extension to provide family room and relocate kitchen. This would create a stunning, contemporary curved kitchen and family room to the east of the house. This permission has now lapsed but could possibly be reinstated. More details can be viewed online: Wychavon District Council Planning Application Number W/12/02263/PP. There is also the potential STPP to convert both outbuildings to annexe accommodation, garaging or stabling to suit the needs of the purchaser.

From the lane, the house is entered via a porch with a tiled floor through the original front door, into the breakfast kitchen. This is a well-proportioned room with a ceramic tiled floor, ample space for a dining table, a small brick inglenook with a flagstone hearth and a great walk-in pantry. It is fitted with an attractive range of contemporary grey units with oak worktops, incorporating a Lamona electric oven, Siemens ceramic hob, neue dishwasher and fridge. A door leads into a rear hall with a tiled floor and a door to outside, which in turn leads through to a very useful, good sized utility/cloakroom/boot room, which has a tiled floor and is fitted with a good range of gloss units with a long worktop over incorporating a basin, and has space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier, and a WC.

Also accessed from the kitchen is the charming sitting room, a dual aspect room with many exposed beams and timbers including a detailed carved doorway, and a large brick inglenook with a flagstone hearth and a bressumer beam over, retaining the original bread oven and now housing a large wood burner. This leads through a small home office space with shelving and space for a desk into the dual aspect playroom, which has a wood burner set in an inglenook with a slate hearth and huge bresummer beam over.

Stairs lead from the playroom to the first floor landing, on which there is access to a very useful walk in store cupboard with a hanging rail, which could provide an entry point into the loft if a conversion was considered by a purchaser. There are three double bedrooms and a single bedroom along with a family bathroom. The bathroom has a varnished oak floor and a lovely contemporary suite including a freestanding roll top bath, a walk in shower, a WC and a wash hand basin set in a vanity unit with storage under.

Outside, there is plentiful parking for numerous vehicles and access into both outbuildings and one of the fields. The brick outbuilding nearest the house incorporates a home office with power, lighting and a telephone connection, enclosed and open storage. There is a further large barn which provides more storage. Both buildings have the potential for conversion STPP. There is a generous country garden which is mainly laid to lawn with some flower beds and mature trees including a stunning ornamental cherry tree. This leads into the orchard which contains apple, pear and plum trees. There are three fields, one of which has a natural pond to the centre, and one of which is undulating, being the possible site of the original moat, and having its own access onto the road.

Services: Mains electricity and water are connected. Private drainage. Oil fired central heating.

Local Authority: Wychavon District Council. Band G.
