Belbroughton Road, Blakedown, Kidderminster, DY10 (ref: 480022)Shortlist
It is understood that The Honey Farm originally comprised two properties, Rose Cottage (circa 1840) and a blacksmiths workshop and adjoining stables. Subsequently, we understand in the 1950s it was converted into a single dwelling and around the 1970s was producing honey in the area - hence the name. More recently it was updated and renovated to become the beautiful family home it is today.
Being located in the heart of Blakedown, The Honey Farm is very conveniently located near to the excellent village primary school, nursery, shop and with the village train station providing excellent links to Birmingham, Worcester and London Marylebone making it ideal for the commuter, whilst also on the doorstep of some of the most beautiful countryside Worcestershire has to offer.
This home has been lovingly transformed in recent years, and the kitchen has been extended and refitted in the last 18 months by the present owners with stylish units, creating a beautiful open-plan living space flooded with natural light. In addition, the property boasts multiple downstairs reception rooms, living room with cosy log wood burner and original parquet flooring, additional snug or playroom, traditional dining room with original features and a dedicated study, with important home-working flexibility.
The property includes open plan welcoming reception hallway, split level steps down to living space and kitchen, utility area, lounge, further reception room/playroom, fantastic dining room, office, four bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor with en-suite to master bedroom, garage to the side, lovely garden and also a summer house, with possibilities for a home gym or work space.
This property truly needs to be seen to be believed.
