Property Description

Hayden Estates have, over the years, seen many wonderful inspiring homes of all shapes, sizes and prices. Some in the very centre of towns, whilst others are extremely rural with no neighbours, apart from a flock of sheep. However, rarely are we overwhelmed by a family home, but we are immensely proud to be able to bring to the market, this outstanding period home, Arbour House.There is evidence to support that a stone cottage was built here in the 1600s. It is understood it was extended substantially in 1804. The impressive brick built exterior stands the test of time and weather. It hasnt been extended since and for many years was a working farmhouse. However, it has, in the latter years undergone refurbishment of the highest level. The current owners are to be congratulated on the presentation of their home, which is offered for sale today.No expense has been spared with high quality fittings and fixtures added. This was to be the family home for years to come.Some remodelling of the internal space has taken place and additional land has since been added to the external footprint. Otherwise, the property is presented as it was circa 220 years ago.A change of direction has meant Arbour House is available to a new buyer, safe in the knowledge that the property has been maintained and finished to an exemplary standard.Arbour House, nestles majestically at Nib Green, Arley and abuts the common land, the majority of which is protected under SSSI and overseen by Worcestershire Wildlife. The area boasts some outstanding flora and fauna and borders the Wyre Forest. Fantastic for those who enjoy an active outside lifestyle. However, please dont think the property is isolated, it forms part of a community with other residents, the village hall and local pub serving food, all located nearby.Bewdley is approximately 4 miles away by car. The River Severn and Arley Station, which forms part of the historical Steam railway, Severn Valley Railway, is less than a mile away. there is a footbridge over the Severn to the other side where you can find the wonderful Arley Arboretum, a tea room, shop and post office. There are numerous public footpaths and beautiful walks directly accessible from Arbour House.  You certainly never tire of the scenery thats for sure!The property has a driveway in front of the double garaging, with a second gated driveway to the side of the house with surplus parking for many vehicles. There is pedestrian access all around the property. Once within the grounds, you begin to absorb the unrivalled views of the forest at the side and rear. The changing seasons and the admiration of the beauty in the trees. Beautiful sunsets, the birds of prey souring high above waiting on their prey. And all of this can be enjoyed from your very own large garden.Fully enclosed and boasting lawn, well stocked planted bed, orchard/ paddock with two Plum and three Apple trees and all fenced.
