Tenure: Freehold

Discreetly positioned at the end of a quiet, country cul-de-sac, within this beautiful village mid-way between Cheltenham and Evesham, this detached, two storey, Grade II Listed, mid-18th Century barn conversion combines the innate character and charm of a period home with the refinements expected of modern day living.

The property is located in the corner of approximately 2.4 acres of formal gardens, paddock and menage, with a small stable block in the centre. The property takes its name from two substantial willow trees also in the centre of the garden, which backs onto open, rolling countryside and enjoys good views of the surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The accommodation flows effortlessly from the spacious entrance hall, with 16ft high ceiling, to the farmhouse-style fitted kitchen, through the central dining room to the slightly elevated, charismatic living room with a-frame exposed beams, inglenook fireplace with homely stove, and patio doors opening onto the main outside seating area.

At first floor level, the 40ft landing gives access to the five separate bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a study, and the spacious master bedroom occupies one side of the accommodation, incorporates its own en suite four-piece bathroom suite. This, together with the main family bathroom, has recently been upgraded in a similar fashion of neutral tones and contemporary-style fittings.

Surprisingly, for such a rural location, the property enjoys the benefit of gas-fired central heating and mains drainage. The integral double garage is suitable for conversion to even more living accommodation, subject to planning and the usual building regulations.

The paddock, menage and stables account for just over 1 acre of the grounds, and would be suitable for a horse or a couple of ponies, or more adventurous breeds such as alpaca and lamas, which are notable in the area.

In short, this is a perfect property for those looking to escape from city life and enjoy a truly rural location, with the opportunity to develop the property and use a manageable amount of land and gardens.

Westmancote is located only five miles from M5 junction 9, and close to the other picturesque villages of Kemerton, Overbury and Bredon which offer shops, churches and primary schools. The village lies nine miles north of Cheltenham, and 11 miles south of Evesham, where there are both prestigious grammar schools and the famous Cheltenham Ladies College, Dean Close and Pates Grammar School.
