Buckbury Farm

Buckbury Farm is a truly wonderful Grade II listed, black and white former farmhouse, dating in parts from the 16th Century, which boasts a wealth of sought-after features set in the most idyllic and lovingly tended gardens and grounds of circa 1 acre. The property is set in the rural hamlet of Longdon yet only a short equidistant drive to the amenities of the historic towns of Tewkesbury and Upton-upon-Severn, the M5 Motorway to the North and South and the M50 to South Wales.

The full character and beauty of the property is immediately evident upon pulling onto the gated driveway with the smart and well-maintained property sitting within a blanket of sculpted borders and large open lawns. The property is accessed via a useful entrance porch, ideal for muddy boots and warm coats, which leads to the welcoming entrance hallway with flagstone flooring, exposed beams and oak doors with the stairway leading off to the first floor. The fitted kitchen has space for a small breakfast table, a range of fitted units and the ubiquitous farmhouse Aga. The hallway leads to the newly refurbished ground floor shower room continuing through to the spacious dining room which, with its feature fireplace with original cast iron range and exposed beams, brings a sense of history and grandeur. The living room is set off the dining room and with its open fireplace is a cosy and relaxing room which will surely be a haven on those cold winter’s nights.

On the first floor are four good-sized bedrooms, all with thumb-latch doors and exposed beams, the largest of which, at the far end of the property, has a dressing area with further bedroom off which could potentially form an en-suite bathroom subject to the necessary consents. There are two further bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom.

Back to the ground floor and leading to the right of the entrance hallway is a separate wing with the potential to form a separate annex or produce a rental income subject to the necessary consents. The former bakehouse is now a delightful family room with the original bread oven and open fireplace with wood burner. Of particular interest is enclosed well which previously provided water for the property via the freestanding cast iron hand pump.

Leading on and passing a useful broom cupboard is the large sitting room, also with a wood burner.  The room is light and bright room with French doors to the side elevation and three further windows allowing an abundance of natural light. Leading off the sitting room is the home office which, importantly for those working from home, can take advantage of the superfast full fibre broadband. There is the potential to convert this room into a small kitchen, subject to the necessary consents, which allow this wing of the house to be separate accommodation. In anticipation, ‘the office’ has been wired with a dedicated 32A cooker supply and multiple 13A power sockets with power usage separately metered.

Next to the office is a further family bathroom and small rear hallway with an entrance door to the side elevation.  A stairway from the sitting room leads to a first-floor dressing area with access to the spacious loft storage area and onto a nicely proportioned bedroom with exposed beams. Finally, there is a useful utility room, accessed externally, with space and plumbing for a washing machine and adjacent tumble dryer, and plenty of shelving with adequate space for fridge and freezer.

Externally the property has a detached barn which is currently used for storage but would be ideal as garaging. The barn hides a true hidden gem in the most complete stone cider press we have ever come across – a real statement piece that will certainly have guests talking. In addition, there is a large wooden shed perfect for those garden tools. The property stands in its own grounds of circa 1 acre with well stocked herbaceous borders with specimen plants, fruit trees which formed part of the original farmhouse orchard and sweeping, well-tended lawns.  There is a glass greenhouse with a mature vine that regularly produces a good crop of grapes.

Longdon is a small, rural village located between Tewkesbury and Upton Upon Severn but with the benefit of a local pub, the Hunters Inn while fine dining can be found only a short drive away at the Corse Lawn House Hotel. There is good state schooling at Hanley Swan or Tewkesbury and a wealth of independent schooling within easy reach in Malvern and Cheltenham.

The area is popular with tourists and with a rich, vibrant history and a beautiful waterside setting, there is plenty for everyone to discover in nearby Tewkesbury. You can take in the stunning scenery by taking a stroll beside the River Severn, or a boat trip along the Avon then head to Tewkesbury Abbey; an imposing feature of the town’s landscape for nearly 900 years. Renowned the world over for its fine Norman tower, ornate 12th Century ceiling and stunning stained glass windows, the Abbey is one of Gloucestershire’s most popular tourist attractions, second only to Gloucester Cathedral. Throughout the year Tewkesbury has a full calendar of events, celebrations and festivals to enjoy including the world-famous Medieval Festival, popular Food & Drink Festival and Mop Fair. 

Upton upon Severn is an historic riverside town, voted “Best place to live” in the Midlands by the Sunday Times and hosts many summer events that attracts thousands of tourists every year. It is a town with a liveliness out of all proportion to its size. Its attractive shops, its delightful inns and a variety of events each year, such as the Jazz, Folk, Blues and Sunshine Festivals draw crowds in their thousands. It’s a place that has much to reveal with a wealth of interesting and diverse businesses within the town, from galleries, to therapists and gift shops, antiques, hair stylists, coffee shops, pubs and restaurants.  Upton upon Severn has entered the annual RHS Heart of England in Bloom campaign since 2003 and has gained a Gold award every year, and won its category. It has been nominated for the RHS Britain in Bloom national campaign five times, gaining a Silver, two Silver Gilts and, in 2018, a gold award. Volunteers run every aspect of the stunning floral displays and also maintain permanent flower beds.

The property is for sale Freehold and viewings are strictly by appointment.
