A substantial Grade II Listed period farmhouse set within grounds of about 5.74 acres in a superb rural setting

Description

The popular hamlet of Upper Bentley is surrounded by lovely Worcestershire countryside yet situated within easy reach of nearby village facilities in Hanbury, Feckenham and Stoke Prior and midway between the market towns of Bromsgrove and Redditch offering a greater range of shopping facilities and amenities. The area is popular for equestrian pursuits and the canal system offers walking and cycling routes. Excellent primary schools are available locally together with other state and private schooling including the renowned Bromsgrove School. For the commuter, the M5 and M42 motorways are close by with Worcester and Birmingham easily accessible as are Birmingham International Airport and the NEC. Local and intercity rail networks are available from Bromsgrove, Redditch and Alvechurch all less than 5 miles away.

Accommodation

Lane House Farm is situated in a lovely rural, but not isolated, position with closest neighbours being from converted barns previously from the farm estate. The substantial Grade II listed five bedroom farmhouse is a delightful blend of 17th century timber frame facades with imposing symmetrical elevations of the Georgian period added around 1780 and then further later additions. The property, whilst now in need of certain modernisation and refurbishment, benefits from character accommodation with exposed timbers and period fireplaces.

Gardens and grounds

The setting of the property is a major attribute and the current owner has developed the stunning grounds of around 5.74 acres for leisure and personal enjoyment. The gated pool area includes an 11m x 5m swimming pool, heated via a heat exchanger, and has been recently re-lined. There is a summerhouse and changing room and a paved sun deck. The grass tennis court is also enclosed and, to the main fields and paddock, is a four hole golf pitch and putt course. To the rear of the house is a patio and a walled house garden with sculpted borders and a stone pebble drive gated from the road provides parking for several vehicles, ideal when entertaining. Also gated from the road a further tarmacadam driveway opens to a large courtyard leading to further parking, garages and fuel store. Also off this courtyard is access to the remainder of the stable/barns which provide primarily storage and could potentially be developed for further accommodation subject to necessary planning and listed consents.
