**OPEN HOUSE SATURDAY 24th AND 30th JULY. 12-1PM. CALL TO REGISTER INTEREST/INTENT TO ATTEND** This Grade II listed farmhouse is in need of modernisation and offers an exciting project opportunity. It has the potential for renovation into one large family home, to be split into two properties plus there is a detached barn ideal for conversion (subject to planning consent). The property is set in a plot of approximately 0.7 acre. It is believed the original building dates back to the 15th/16th century and was extended in the Georgian period. The property was owned by Cadbury's in the early 19th century and it is rumoured King Charles II used the property after escaping from the battle of Worcester. The main entrance into the original part of the farmhouse is accessed through the garden from Hindlip Lane. A drive, parking and further access into the property is located to the side. The imposing original entrance leads into a hall with quarry tiled floor, cold store and stairs to the first floor. There are four reception rooms - one with a beautiful marble fireplace and one with a leaded arched window. The staircase in this part of the house leads to two bedrooms. It is understood there is a sealed doorway on the landing with additional space/rooms for development. The kitchen has a large larder and a further staircase which leads to another bedroom and bathroom. The garden surrounds the farmhouse and is predominately laid to lawn with mature trees. Outbuildings include the old dairy (currently used as a workshop), a two storey detached barn with additional outbuilding attached. NO ONWARD CHAIN.
