Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Sherbourne was built lovingly by a boutique developer around 2000 and is one of two properties built to impeccable high standards and enjoys incredible views of the surrounding countryside.

The location was chosen to take advantage of the views of open countryside but to still be in close proximity to amenity rich village. Holt parish has an approximate population of 717 and 354 habitable properties. There is a post office in the centre of the village with a shop. Outside of Holt Heath is a castle and parish Church. Holt Heath is also known for its public houses and recently reformed gastro pub, The Red Lion, which is renowned for its fish. Recently added additional feature to the village is the Millennium field which can be used by all families. Ideal for games, picnic, and dog walking. With Catchment area being Chantry High School along with a number of excellent primary schools, Holt Heath is an ideal and popular village location for families.

Holt is a mixed rural community with farming, fruit growing and market gardening on land around the village. There is also a small light industrial estate in converted farm buildings. The Church of St Martin is a mid-12th Century (restored in the 19th Century) Grade 2 Listed building, built from sandstone and situated three quarters of a mile from the Centre of the village. Opposite the church is Holt Castle, itself being a Grade 1 Listed building. Elsewhere in the village and surrounding area there are examples of farm buildings and cottages dating from the 17th century.

The Parish of Holt is situated about 7 miles north of Worcester adjacent to the river Severn in The Malvern Hills District Council area. The village of Holt Heath is the main residential part of the parish. This modern day family home is mainly modular but still maintains an open plan feel to it, yet all rooms can be used individually.

Briefly comprising of light and spacious reception hall, WC, fitted granite worktop kitchen, separate utility, sitting room, separate dining room and sun room. To first floor are four bedrooms, with en-suite bathroom to master and additional family bathroom. Property benefits from oil central heating, double glazing, and stylish marble flooring throughout the whole of the ground floor. Garden to rear with a generous lawn. Double integral garage, and driveway to front. Having glorious views of rolling countryside, the tip of Holt Castle in sight, and all appreciated from the main living space, which is all situated to the rear. Sherbourne has all the qualities of a modern home and yet the benefits of living in an amenity rich location. There is huge opportunity for further expansion and development at the property (subject to planning) which could turn the property from something that is already vast and impressive into a dream home built to the new owners own specification making a dream home of grand proportions.

The land around the village is of Grade 2 Agricultural quality, it rises slightly to the west, the Abberley Hills with its Clock Tower being the dominant feature about 5 miles away, to the East the land falls slightly. The River Severn forms the Northern boundary; the woodland bordering the river. There are several streams and brooks within the parish which form parts of the parish boundaries. Shrawley brook has two old Mills along its path, neither now working, one is Hollingshead Mill and the other is Holt Mill, this mill is (probably) the one mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086.

The A443 crosses the river at Holt Fleet, until 1826 the only way to cross was by ferry, in 1826 the foundation stone was laid for the bridge, it was opened in 1828, it one of seven bridges on the River Severn designed by Thomas Telford. Adjacent to the bridge is the Holt Fleet Inn, the original Inn was an old Coaching Inn and was opened around 1607.
