Beautifully presented Grade II detached barn conversion situated in a convenient yet peaceful rural setting with lovely gardens bordering open countryside


Old Moat Barn enjoys a prime rural setting on a quiet lane within the small and peaceful village of Dormston. The village lies in attractive rolling countryside to the east of Worcester between Inkberrow and Flyford Flavell. The village has its own pub and there are several local shops nearby, as well as primary schools at Inkberrow and Flyford. Dormston is well placed for access to the local centres including Worcester, Droitwich and Pershore and for commuters rail services at all three locations provide regular services to Birmingham and London. The M5 and M42 are also accessible for routes to the West Midlands.


The property has only had two owners since it was converted some 33 years ago. Old Moat Barn offers well presented family accommodation with a wealth of period features and quality fittings. The current owners have enhanced the property to include replacing all windows to doubled glazed solid oak ones which have UV tinted glass, refitting the kitchen, shower room and bathroom together with adding the garage, home office and BBQ hut. The property is approached through a panelled oak entrance door to an inner hallway with a tiled floor and a cloaks cupboard which houses the Worcester LPG gas fired central heating boiler. The galleried reception hall has wonderful floor to ceiling windows and a door opening onto the patio and the garden and the staircase to the first floor, exposed beams and feature brick wall and a tiled floor. The adjacent dining/family room is dual aspect with exposed beams and a feature brick wall and has a versatile use as a study and a soft seating area as well as a more formal dining area. The breakfast kitchen has a stylish range of bespoke painted units, wooden worktops with a large 1 ½ ceramic sink and mixer tap and an island with a granite worktop. The navy electric Aga Companion complements the navy two oven Aga and the fitted appliances include a Neff integral dishwasher, Miele fridge and separate freezer. The kitchen has plenty of cupboard space and pull out saucepan drawers and double oak doors lead out onto the garden and patio area. From the reception hall there are two ground floor double bedrooms both with exposed wall and ceiling beams and a shower room/cloakroom with a Mira sport shower cubicle.
