This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a unique property on the outskirts of the very sought-after hamlet of Uphampton. Just moments away from Ombersley village, Uphampton provides all the positive aspects of countryside living, whilst its location provides excellent commuter links and an excellent range of local amenities. Nearby schools include the highly recommended Ombersley Endowed First School & Pre-School and just a few miles down the road are the Royal Grammar School and Kings School in Worcester.
Springfield Barn is only 4 miles from the M5, and the cathedral city of Worcester is less than 8 miles away. Nearby train services run from both Droitwich and Kidderminster with direct routes into London and Birmingham. The A449 also gives immediate access to the Worcestershire and Shropshire countryside.
Approaching the property from Uphampton Lane, you pass through a pair of elegant wrought iron electric gates and up onto the gently sloping gravel driveway that sweeps around the front of the property. There is parking for several cars on the driveway, a carport/workshop and lock up, with well-presented gardens to the front and side of the property with extensive lawns, complimented with a variety of established trees and shrubs, the property feel very private and secure.
Entering the property through the large contemporary electric barn doors, the high build quality of this property becomes immediately clear. Before you have even entered Springfield Barn the double-height glazed atrium gives a real wow factor. Once inside the main hallway, you are greeted by a large contemporary timber and glazed staircase up to the first floor with hallways off to the ground floor reception rooms. All internal doors are built from solid oak further adding to the sense of quality.
To the left of the entrance hallway you first come to the Dining Room which has two slim full-height floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to the large rear gardens. The oak timber floors and light décor give this room a bright and spacious feel for elegant country dining. Opposite the Dining Room is the Home Office, which like the Dining Room, benefits from oak timber flooring and a netural décor. There are views over the front gardens and into the atrium space.
The third and final room at this end of the property is the Living Room, which has windows on three of the four aspects and is finished in a warm neutral carpeted floor. This spacious room can be configured in numerous ways to capitalise on the three different views of the surrounding gardens. At night the room is lit by ceiling mounted spotlights.
To the right of the entrance hallway, walking back past the contemporary stairwell toward the Kitchen, there is a Utility Room/Boot Room and a downstairs WC. Beyond is a feature oak stable door which leads off out into the Carport, and then to the side is the barn’s country Kitchen / Breakfast Room, the Kitchen also has views out over the front gardens and Atrium space. There is an array of low-level and eye-level units and drawers providing plenty of storage throughout the Kitchen and to the right-hand side there is ample room for a Breakfast area or café style dining. The centrepiece and focus of the Kitchen, however, is the large range cooker in pillar box red, with 6-burners and an extra-large oven, set into a purpose-built recess, giving this space that perfect country Kitchen feel.
As you head up the fabulous staircase, the blend of contemporary architecture and country barn continues, with oak and glass balustrading and LEDs lighting the way. Upon reaching the spacious Landing, you are met with floor to ceiling glazing looking down into the Atrium space below. This area is flooded with bright natural light thanks to the careful architectural detail of the building design. As with the hallway and stairs, the landing is finished in a warm neutral carpet that only enhances the airy feel of this useful space.
To the left of the landing is the Master Bedroom with en-suite, this light and spacious room overlooks the delightful gardens. On the other side of the landing is access to the other three Bedrooms and a Family Bathroom. The first door on the right leads into a walk-in wardrobe, opposite this is the large Family Bathroom with a free-standing bath, a large window looking out onto the atrium below, and an LED lighting system.
Further along the hallway are the three remaining bedrooms, two large double bedrooms and one small double bedroom ideal for 2 single beds. The largest of these at the far end of the hallway would make an excellent guest suite, it has wonderful views across the rolling lawns of the rear garden and an ensuite Shower Room. The rooms on the first floor are built into the eaves giving that unique barn feeling.
The loft space is partially boarded and with a power supply. The current vendor who designed built and has lived in the property since it was built in 2013 has advised that there is the potential to extend into the roof space.
To the rear of the property offers a south facing garden with large terrace that stretches across the width of the rear of the building, perfect for entertaining on warm summer evenings. The vast space and views across the rear lawns and beyond really give you a feeling of privacy and tranquillity. There are established trees of numerous varieties and hedges to the perimeter. This is a low maintenance garden but is simply stunning and encapsulates country living at its very best!
