Whytehouse Farm is a large 17th Century timber framed farmhouse with various latter extensions, situated just off The Greenway in the village of Rock some 10 miles West of Kidderminster, and having around 5 acres of land with South facing lawns to the rear enjoying breathtaking views over the surrounding countryside.

With around 4000 sq ft of adaptable living space, the interior is ripe for modernisation, though a number of original features such as the magnificent Inglenook fireplace and exposed timbers add enormous charm and character to the house.

Most interestingly, adjoining the left side of the house is a large stone built former granary building with tiled roof and remains of the original bread oven, in all measuring approx 60' x 17'8 overall to include adjoining ground floor stores area and first floor room above. Whilst currently in dilapidated order, this could potentially be converted to provide one of the most stunning breakfast kitchens imaginable, or equally could provide self contained annexe accommodation, subject to planning.

The farmhouse offers wonderfully spacious accommodation spread over two floors, though there are also two separate areas within the loft space that could potentially be converted to living accommodation, subject of course to the necessary local authority consent.

The first floor provides 5 generous bedrooms, (2 of which interconnect, with the second room having glazed double doors opening out to a flat rooftop area with magnificent views over countryside). There is also a sizeable landing area plus family bathroom with suite comprising bath, pedestal hand basin and low level wc.

The ground floor is particularly spacious, having a reception hall with new front door fitted in 2017. The hall gives way to an adjacent cloaks lobby and guest wc/ shower room (shower fitment out of use).

Beyond the reception hall is a further inner hall having doors radiating off to all principal rooms and glazed rear door to garden.

The lounge is of huge proportions, essentially two rooms combined in a splendid L-shaped configuration, the main living area having a stunning three quarter width picture window with sliding plate glass patio doors maximising the stunning views South towards the Abberley Clock Tower.

The inner living room area is centred around the splendid Inglenook fireplace with flag paved hearth, concealed lighting and log burner which also services radiators via a secondary back boiler.

A door leads off the lounge to the study, whilst across the hallway is a separate dining room with rear facing windows also enjoying the views.

In addition there is a kitchen with two pantry stores, various wall and base cabinets plus three integrated electric ovens and dishwasher. A door leads through to the particularly large laundry/ utility room which has a door connecting to the old granary building and also a trap door accessing the cellar which features a flagstone floor runs beneath the kitchen.

Mains electricity and water are connected with drainage to a septic tank and an oil fired central heating system with new boiler fitted in 2016.

The property is located approx 300 yards of the road along an access track owned by the neighbouring property and farm buildings. It should be noted that a public footpath continues along this track and across the front of the farmhouse, although it may well be possible with the appropriate consent to have the footpath re-routed away from the house.

To the rear of the house are lawned gardens of around 1 acre enjoying a sunny South facing aspect with uninterrupted views to the distance. Beyond the lawns a mowed path leads on to more overgrown land which slopes down to woodland and a stream.

To the front of the house is a parking & turning area beyond which a mowed path circumnavigates a paddock enclosure belonging to the neighbour, returning to join the access drive nearer to the road entrance.

Further to East of garden paddock area belonging to the property.

Here is situated a large modern barn, providing an enclosed dry storage area of approx 151' x 39' plus adjacent covered area extending another 17' to the rear. The barn has long established use as a commercial storage building and is rated as such by Wyre Forest District Council. Plans have been submitted to WFDC at the time of going to print (Sept 2018) applying for Outline Consent to convert the barn to 4 x residential single storey dwellings, approximately 480 sq m in all.

The purchaser of Whytehouse Farm will have an option to purchase the barn simultaneously, subject to further negotiation.

Council Tax is payable to Wyre Forest District Council, the farmhouse being rated as Band 'G'.
