* Virtual tour available* Egdon House is positioned at the end of a no-through country lane in a peaceful rural position with wonderful views of Bredon Hill from the principal rooms, yet offers ease of access to the motorway network and the new Worcester Parkway rail station. Super-fast fibre broadband is available.

It offers very well proportioned accommodation, which flows from one room to the next and features include stripped pine internal doors, traditional fireplaces and exposed beams.

The front door opens to an entrance vestibule with double part glazed doors opening to the large entrance hall at the heart of the house with original floorboards, a working fireplace with an attractive surround and a door to the cloakroom. At the opposite end of the reception hall is a door to a loggia with steps down to the garden and offering a wonderful spot for al fresco dining. Off the entrance hall are three spacious reception rooms, which offer generous entertaining space. Double pine doors open to the drawing room with a fine working fireplace and French glazed doors opening to the rear terrace. The dining room has exposed beams and the sitting room has a feature fireplace housing an oil-burning stove and a glazed door to the rear terrace. From here a door opens to the orangery with a pitched glazed roof and French glazed doors opening to the rear terrace. It also provides an attractive link to the indoor swimming pool. The indoor pool was re-lined and a new cover fitted at the beginning of this year. It includes a shower and plant room as well as a glazed door opening to the rear terrace.

The large fitted L-shaped kitchen/breakfast room includes a pantry an oil-burning stove, electric AGA and module, electric oven and ceramic hob, freestanding Bosch dishwasher, microwave and an integrated fridge. From the kitchen a door opens to steps leading down to the fitted utility room with a vaulted ceiling, flagstone floor, Belfast sink and a large pine storage cupboard, and freestanding appliances including a fridge freezer, tumble dryer and Miele washing machine. An outside door opens to a small secure courtyard with a potting shed.

From the entrance hall a turning pine staircase rises to the galleried study landing. From here a door opens to a further staircase providing ease of access to the large walk-in attic. The master bedroom suite enjoys wonderful views of Bredon Hill and has a dressing room, built-in wardrobes and an en suite with a bath, shower enclosure and a vanity cabinet with twin basins. There are a further four double bedrooms and a study served by two family bathrooms each with a bath and separate shower enclosure. The study, bedroom 5 and one of the connecting bathrooms offer potential to be used as a suite with the study alternatively serving as a dressing room or a single bedroom. Two large cellars are accessed from outside, one of which houses the boiler.

Double wrought iron gates open to a gravel drive and turning circle-offering parking for several cars set in front the house and traditional outbuildings. One of these traditional buildings serves as a large garage and the other as a store with a hayloft above and offers potential, subject to obtaining the relevant consents, to be converted to ancillary accommodation or a home office. The extensive lawned gardens wrap around the house. The rear garden is south-facing allowing the all-day sunshine to be enjoyed along with views across its land to the magnificent walnut tree, neighbouring countryside and Bredon and Malvern Hills. Extending along the rear of the house is a large paved terrace with a charming waterfall garden feature. Throughout the gardens are well-manicured hedges, strategically planted mature and eye-catching borders of perennial and evergreen plants providing all-year round interest and colour, a range of mature trees and a quaint timber potting shed. A second drive with a 5-bar gated access opens to the land, which is currently arranged as
