Welcome to Broad Hill Farm, a beautifully renovated four-bedroom family home that is situated in the highly sought-after village of Defford. The home, which enjoys circa one of the formal gardens, further benefits from additional grounds of 21 acres, 13 of which surround the property and adjoining barns, while across the road is a separate paddock totalling eight acres.

The barns, of which there are four, enjoy a space of just over 11,000 square feet of internal space, with two of the barns historically having planning to be converted into two residential units under Class Q. For further information regarding the planning that was historically granted, please search Wychavon District Council's planning portal using the reference number 19/02742/GPDQ.

The home, which has been extended and is now beautifully appointed, enjoys close to 2500 square feet of internal space, with the ground-floor open-plan kitchen, dining room, and living room being the showstopper. Due to the wall of glass at the end of the room, this certainly makes the most of the stunning views this home affords over Bredon Hill

Add in a stable block and menage for those looking to purchase for the use of equestrian purposes; this is a home that offers so much, and as such, viewing is highly recommended.

The charming village of Defford benefits from a local farm shop, a church, two public houses, and a village hall. Approximately five miles away are the historic town of Upton upon Severn, situated on the banks of the River Severn, and the market town of Pershore. Both have a good range of shops for everyday needs, as well as a post office, bank, new medical centre, dental surgery, library, and churches. Upton upon Severn has a marina, and to date there is an annual point-to-point meeting as well as jazz, folk, and blues festivals. The town of Pershore is also only three miles away and caters to primary and secondary education.

There is also easy access to the centres of Worcester, Malvern, Tewkesbury, and Evesham. The M5/M50 Motorway Junction is approximately six miles away, bringing the Midlands, the South West, and South Wales all within reasonable commuting time. There are further transport communications with two mainline railway stations at Malvern and one in Pershore and Ledbury, with connections to Worcester, Birmingham, London, Paddington, Hereford, and South Wales

Returning to the property, the home is accessed via double gates. The driveway sweeps past the house, giving access to the barns, although there is secondary access to the head of the front garden

Internally, the home enjoys a wonderfully spacious entrance hall, which in turn gives access to all ground-floor rooms, while an oak staircase leads to the first floor.
On the ground floor is a cloakroom, a spacious utility/boot room complete with a wealth of fitted units and a dog bath, and the family room, which has French doors leading onto the garden. Completing the ground floor is the super, open-plan kitchen, dining room, and living room.

The kitchen enjoys a wealth of fitted cupboards that sit alongside a host of integrated appliances, a large central island that is finished with granite worksurfaces, and a tiled floor that has the benefit of underfloor heating that runs through the entire space. The living/dining room space is flooded with natural light from the two overhead lantern lights and two sets of bi-folding doors, which allow super views over the property's formal garden and Bredon Hill, which is nestled into the background.

Upstairs, the home benefits from four good-sized bedrooms and a three-piece family bathroom. The master bedroom benefits from an array of mirrored, fitted wardrobes and a three-piece en suite bathroom.

Three of the bedrooms are located at the rear of the property, so they benefit from the wonderful views this home affords.

Of the outbuildings, there are four in total, with Barns one and three previously granted permission to convert into residential dwellings under Class Q status. Furthermore, there is a large barn used as a stable block, which offers five stables and space for hay storage, etc. To the end of the barn is an opening that gives access to the menage, which we understand measures 40 x 20 m.

Of the grounds, thirteen acres of paddocks are attached to the home and barns, while an additional eight acres are located just over the lane. The separate paddock is enclosed by hedging, and within is a field shelter.

Broad Hill Farm, in our opinion, offers two very different options. The first being perfect for those of an equestrian persuasion, offering a wonderful home, outbuildings, menage, and paddocks. The second is a potential development opportunity, reinstating the previously passed planning for the two barns and then seeking planning for the remaining barns, potentially creating four new dwellings and, of course, benefiting from the refurbished four-bedroom detached home.
