EPC For Droitwich, Worcestershire


Tapenhall Barn is built partly of local sandstone and principally of mellow red brick beneath a traditional mainly clay tiled roof incorporating attractive brick fenestration. The property is believed to date from around 1850 and was converted by the current owners in 1988 and subsequently enlarged by them to provide substantial accommodation well suited to family living. Both internally and externally the property has extensive period features throughout and is well presented.

From the partly enclosed oak framed entrance porch a wide entrance door with stained glass panel gives access to the principal reception room which has a magnificent fully vaulted ceiling with a wealth of exposed timbers and a large glazed screen allowing the south light to flood in. There are two attractive staircases and a distinctive blue ceramic Italian wood burning stove as a feature. There are dedicated partly open plan spaces for reception, dining, study and a further galleried study. In addition there is a guest cloakroom. Beyond the dining area is a magnificent triple aspect kitchen/family room with extensive fully glazed doors looking out onto the garden with undulating views. The kitchen incorporates extensive cupboards and drawers, polished granite work surfaces, and integrated appliances. There is a dining area for informal suppers and a sitting area with lantern roof. The kitchen provides access to a useful pantry/wine store and separate laundry. In addition there is a superb double aspect sitting room with a further wood burning stove and glazed doors leading to the terrace. The galleried landing overlooking the reception hall gives access to the principal bedroom and bathroom accommodation. This wing of the house incorporates the master bedroom with delightful views, fitted wardrobes, air conditioning unit and a well appointed en suite bathroom with separate shower. There are two further double bedrooms and a family shower room.

To one end of the house is the fourth bedroom suite with its own entrance and a spiral staircase leading to a mezzanine used as an occasional further bedroom.

To the outside there are a range of outbuildings, some with potential for residential conversion (subject to planning). Currently these include a large games room for snooker and an enclosed double garage and a useful double car port. The house is approached from the west by way of a block paved drive with parking and turning. There is a generous bin and log store situated between the house and the games room. The parking forecourt leads to the entrance porch and main garden. Adjacent to the kitchen/family room is an area of raised decking next to which is a wisteria clad pergola. Tapenhall Barn sits elevated in charming grounds extending to over an acre. These comprise a dedicated area for sheltered al fresco summer dining with attractive seating areas, a partly covered pergola and oak framed timber potting shed beyond which undulating lawns drop away from the house to an area of mature orchard and a natural spring fed pond. Below the house is a superb all weather tennis court with secure fencing. Beyond the pond lies a water meadow with frontage to the River Salwarpe with open views of the surrounding countryside. The area of Porters Mill is well recognised for its permanent grassland being the ideal wetland habitat for wildlife.

Tapenhall Barn is likely to appeal to buyers looking for a family home in an easily accessible rural location being well placed for excellent schooling and the Midlands motorway network.
