Secluded character house in former stable block

Set in the beautiful grounds of Hawford House near Worcester is a three-bedroomed character home offering all the benefits of modern living combined with the peace and tranquillity of a country house location.

Approached via a long sweeping driveway, 12 The Stables, Ombersley Road, Hawford, is to be sold by conditional online auction by SDL Auctions in partnership with Bellway Homes, with a minimum opening bid of £200,000.

The Grade II listed Hawford House and its outbuildings were converted to individual houses and apartments in the 1980s and the property for sale is part of the original stable block which now houses five individual character homes.

On the ground floor is a spacious lounge/diner with a dual fuel log burner, dual aspect windows and open views to the front, a modern fitted kitchen with tiled splashbacks, downstairs cloakroom and utility.

On the first floor are three double bedrooms, the master having an en suite, and a family bathroom. At the top of the house is a spacious mezzanine area, which would be suitable for a number of uses, such as a home office.

Outside, a single garage is located in a separate block, and there is visitor parking close by.

Jason Lee, national sales manager at SDL Auctions, said: “This is a rare opportunity to own property and live in the beautiful grounds of Hawford House. Surrounded by delightful gardens and grounds, but with all the convenience of Worcester’s amenities nearby, this really does have ‘best of both worlds’ appeal.”

Hawford is well placed for motorway links to the Midlands and the South West and just a 15-minute drive from the house is the historic cathedral city of Worcester, which has a thriving shopping area with bars and restaurants overlooking the river Severn. Nearer to the property there are primary schools – state and independent – and a farm shop, while nearby Fernhill Heath has a pub and post office.

Jason added: “While this property would make a beautiful home for a couple or family, the style of the building and its location close to historic Worcester mean it would make a fantastic ‘lock up and leave’ property, allowing the occupants to escape to the country for weekends and longer holidays.”

12 The Stables is being sold by conditional online auction in partnership with Bellway Homes. Bidding starts at £200,000, ending at noon on Monday, 11 March.  For more details or to arrange a viewing, please contact SDL Auctions on 0345 222 0197.
