A VERY CHARMING PERIOD VILLAGE HOUSE WITH VALUABLE PADDOCK AND OUTBUILDINGS

The Thatch is a charming period property thought to date back to the 17th Century and is typical of many half timbered properties found across this part of Worcestershire. The property has been the subject of considerable alteration by a previous owner, adding two additional wings built in a similar manner below a tiled roof. The oldest part has a wonderful thatched roof (recently re-covered using water reed with a combed wheat reed decorative ridge). Work has recently been completed on the improved internal and external decorations. The present owner has invested in the property sensitively retaining its features and enhancing its unspoilt character. The deceptive living accommodation benefits from a versatile layout and is illustrated on the accompanied floorplans.

The internal arrangement of rooms is set out over two floors and briefly comprises three charming reception rooms, a well fitted kitchen with oak fronted cupboards and drawers, polished granite work surfaces incorporating a Belfast sink, a Rangemaster range cooker and other appliances. There are four double bedrooms, a newly fitted family bathroom and a wet room. Although modernised, the property retains expected period features including a wealth of exposed beams, an open fireplace and stone flagged floors. A particular appeal of The Thatch is its picturesque setting from which there are charming aspects over the gardens.

The property is approached over a shared tarmacadam splay into a substantial gravelled area to the east of the house. Pedestrian gates provide access to the cottage style gardens that surround the property and these include a series of interconnecting pathways, areas of lawn and a large paved terrace adjacent to the kitchen. The gardens are established, set within mature hedges dotted with ornamental trees and shrubs. Adjacent to the garden is a useful area for growing fruit and vegetables containing various garden sheds and a summer house, beyond which lies a large timber garage/barn capable of housing several motor cars. Two timber stables and a useful store sit alongside the garage/barn, all of which has vehicular access via the gravelled parking area. Beyond which to the north of the property is a single paddock being ideal for equestrian use. The paddock adjoins open farmland with a rural outlook. The whole extends to about 1.59 acres.

SITUATION

The Thatch is situated on the outskirts of Radford, a small Worcestershire hamlet on the edge of the Lenches which run south to Evesham along the Blossom Trail, and about one mile south west of the popular village of Inkberrow. Radford is situated in an attractive part of south east Worcestershire close to the Warwickshire border. There is a public house in Radford and two in Inkberrow, along with a doctors’ surgery, Post Office, church and convenience store.

The historic market towns of Evesham and Pershore sit on the River Avon both with a delightful riverside park and picturesque Abbey. Evesham offers and a wide range of shops catering for a range of day to day requirements and Pershore has a well equipped leisure centre. A farmers’ market is held in Evesham’s historic Market Square on the fourth Friday of every month and a variety of cultural festivals are held throughout the year. The larger centres of Worcester, Cheltenham and Stratford upon Avon provide a wider range of shopping, cultural and leisure facilities.
