An exciting opportunity to renovate or redevelop (STP) a fantastic, detached period red brick and sandstone barn and attached converted cottage in a generous plot, circa 0.93 acre

Situation

Sylton Lodge enjoys a splendid semi-rural setting surrounded by un-spoilt Worcestershire countryside. The superb location is ideal for those who play golf or want to live on the outskirts of an extremely popular village such as Ombersley. Ombersley has excellent daily facilities including a delicatessen, butchers, tea shop, several excellent public houses with restaurant facilities, cricket club and church. There is also a primary school and medical centre within the village. Ombersley is always popular because it allows for swift access onto the M5 motorway network at Junction 6 and the A449 which provides access to Kidderminster and the larger West Midlands conurbation. Worcester City centre is less than 10 miles away and has excellent regional shopping and leisure facilities as well as a choice of highly regarded independent schools

Description

Sylton Lodge offers a rare opportunity to purchase an attractive detached traditional Victorian red brick and sandstone Barn, together with adjoining sandstone, brick and part rendered converted cottage, the whole of which is now in need of total renovation or replacement.

The property is entered though an enclosed porch, with door access to both the kitchen, and entrance reception hall. Off the hall is door access into the adjoining Barn. A door from the hall leads into the first reception room, with south facing window and open field views to the rear. A second door leads into the dual aspect kitchen, with west facing window and open field views, and to the frontage of the property . Adjoining the kitchen is the dining/living room, also with dual aspect open field views, and with feature fireplace surround housing the solid fuel stove with back boiler for the central heating system. The hallway staircase leads up to the first-floor landing and to three double bedrooms, two of which enjoying elevated open countryside views towards the Malvern Hills. The house bathroom has loft hatch access , and off the landing an airing cupboard housing the hot water tank.

The potential conversion of the adjoining attractive period red brick barn is the game-changer. Currently, the ground floor is divided into two sections, the smaller space, with adjoining WC, and which links back through to the entrance hallway of the cottage. The larger workshop section is also accessed by double barn-style doors from the driveway. A corner staircase rises to the upper floor. The upper floor is divided into a mezzanine and void area, and is currently open into the rafters and features the expansive exposed timber beams and trusses – and offers huge potential for inspired conversion.

Grounds and gardens

The property is situated in a wonderful semi-rural location, set in a mature plot of 0.93 of an acre of gardens, surrounded by fields and open views, and not overlooked. The property is set well back from the lane and approached along a central driveway with grass areas eitherside and opening to a parking area in front of the property. The rest of the garden is surrounded by fields and bordered by fencing and mature hedgerows and has established fruit trees and offers great scope for re-landscaping. There is a sizeable, detached pigeon loft/potential stable, and a detached single garage.
