A fabulous award winning 4 bedroom family home situated in a much sought after location with a detached annexe and gardens and woodland extending to 1.2 acres


The Coach House is situated in a stunning elevated position by Hanbury Church with open uninterrupted views overlooking the National Trust parkland of Hanbury Hall across to the Malvern Hills. Hanbury village benefits from the Church of England first school, the popular Jinney Ring Craft Centre, Hanbury Hall and the Vernon public house. More extensive facilities can be found in nearby Bromsgrove and Droitwich, including railway stations and good access to the M5 and M42 which links to the M40 the principal route to London from the West Midlands. The area is also popular for its proximity to several well respected schools including RGS and Kings, Worcester and the renowned Bromsgrove School.


The original part of the property is understood to have been built circa 1870 by the Vernon family who lived at Hanbury Hall for use as a place to leave their coach and horses whilst visiting Hanbury Church. The original horse mounting block remains in situ at the side of the property. The current owners, who have lived in the property for 30 years, have sympathetically extended and modernised The Coach House for which they received the Wychavon Distinction in Building Award in 2002 for recognition of high standards of design and craftmanship.

Handmade Gothic arched wooden doors with wrought iron door furniture lead through to the hallway. The sitting room is a lovely large family room which is dual aspect and has a feature brick fireplace housing a Clearview wood burning stove, an open tread staircase to the first floor and opens out into the home office area which has a borrowed window to the hallway. The separate dining room has three leaded light windows to the front elevation and leads through to the breakfast kitchen. This is the heart of the home and forms part of the extensions completed in 2001 and is a fantastic space to cook and socialise whilst enjoying the spectacular views. The bespoke made kitchen has an excellent range of fitted units with granite worktops and a large central island together with a double ceramic sink and an inglenook recess with an Aga electric range cooker with an induction hob. The adjacent utility room/boot room also has a Belfast sink, recesses and plumbing for the usual appliances, a door to the garden and plenty of space for storage and a door to a separate cloakroom.

On the first floor the large master bedroom is part of the 2001 extension and has stunning south westerly views to the Malvern Hills and an ensuite with Heritage fittings to include a bath and separate Aqualisa shower cubicle. There are three further double bedrooms and a fully tiled family bathroom with Sanitan fittings and a separate Aqualisa shower.

Gardens and grounds

The detached garaging has handmade oak doors to mirror the arched Gothic openings of the main house and has a useful workshop to the rear. On the first floor there is a fully self contained annex with a good sized kitchen, a fully tiled shower room and an open plan sitting room/bedroom. This provides excellent versatile accommodation ideal for providing additional space for guests, extended family or alternatively as a separate income source.

There are two granite set driveways providing parking for several cars to the front of the property and the garden which surrounds the property to the sides and rear has spectacular elevated views which can be fully enjoyed from the south west facing patio area by the kitchen.

The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with an area of mature mixed deciduous woodland which has a diversity of birds and wildlife to include roe and muntjac deer. The general maintenance and tending of the woodland make for the self sufficient supply of wood for the Clearview wood burning stove in the sitting room.

Spring bulbs, primroses and bluebells are also a feature and there

is an area with fruit trees to include plum, greengage and three

types of apple trees together with raised vegetable beds, a two

bay compost area and a wood store. There are also two garden sheds, one that is 14ft x 10ft with a pitched roof and a power supply and the other which is 6ft x 6ft.

The gardens and woodland extend in total to 1.2 acres.
