An excellent family home with super views to Bredon Hill


Chevington Mead is quietly located on the southern fringe of the village of Drakes Broughton, a thriving village community with an excellent primary school, church, post office, supermarket, hairdresser, dentist and 2 pubs. More extensive shopping and leisure facilities are found in the cathedral City of Worcester also the cultural hub of the region. Pershore to the south is easily accessible which provides an alternative range of excellent shopping and leisure facilities including a theatre. The area has a very good range of schools, both state and private, with Kings School and RGS in Worcester and Bowbrook House School in Peopleton. For the commuter there is excellent access to the M5 at Junction 7, and the new Worcester Parkway station (which is due to open in 2019), is located just beyond Stoulton, about 3 miles away, which will provide trains to Birmingham and London.


Chevington Mead is an elegant detached family house, constructed in around 1961 and built of mellow brick under a tiled roof. The front gable has some attractive diamond patterned brickwork adding to the wonderful appeal of the property. The porch leads into the entrance hall which has an attractive wood parquet floor leading through into the spacious sitting room with a picture window framing the distant view to Bredon Hill. This comfortable room also has a parquet floor and minimalist fireplace with wood burning stove and a double aspect. Off the entrance hall is the beautifully appointed dining room with a wall of bespoke fitted cupboards and shelves above also featuring a large window to enjoy the view. Completing the ground floor is the large kitchen breakfast/family room, ideally suited for modern living. This part of the property was extended by the vendors to provide some excellent additional living space and the kitchen features granite worktops, a granite top central island, a range of base and wall units and a window overlooking the garden. A wide archway leads through into the main sitting and dining area with French doors leading out into the garden. Behind the dining area is a large utility/boot room with, to one side, a study area.

The attractive staircase, featuring an mahogany hand rail and spindles, rises to the first floor. The master bedroom is an excellent double room, with windows to two sides and the most spectacular view directly to Bredon Hill. There is a modern well fitted en-suite shower room which doubles as a dressing room, having a tiled walk in shower cubicle. Bedroom two is a double and opposite is the modern well fitted bathroom. Bedroom three is also a double, with a range of fitted wardrobes and an excellent en-suite shower room, fitted with a corner shower cubicle and eaves storage.

On the second floor, at the top of the staircase, is a room currently used as an office, but could easily be adapted to provide a fifth bedroom if required. Adjacent to this is a shower cubicle which could be brought back into use to provide a fourth bathroom. The main room on this floor is a large wood panelled bedroom which could be further sub-divided to provide an excellent working area or bedroom as required. The double aspect provides both a view over the village and a further superb view towards Bredon. There are some useful storage cupboards within the eaves and some exposed beams.

Gardens and grounds

Chevington Mead is approached via a track shared with three other properties which leads to the entrance of the drive, flanked by impressive curved brick walls leading onto the expansive gravelled driveway providing excellent parking. At right angles to the house is the detached double garage with brick built carport. The driveway is enclosed by a mature hedgerow and specimen trees and there are some well kept shrubs and climbers adorning the front of the property. A pedestrian gateway leads around the side of the property to the wonderful south facing gardens which are principally laid to lawn. Immediately adjacent to the house is a wide terrace providing excellent al fresco dining opportunities. The steps lead down onto the lawn with a curved dwarf red brick wall with a pillar at one end. To one side is an ornamental fish pond and the garden sweeps around to the right hand side where there is a green house. Throughout the garden there are some well stocked flower and shrub borders and specimen trees. Dividing the orchard from the main lawn is a well planted row of espalier pleached lime trees with a gravel sitting area below. The orchard has a range of fruit trees, silver birch and also a vegetable patch with soft fruit and asparagus beds. This area of the garden is enclosed by a mature hedgerow and, in all, the grounds extend to about 0.5 acres (0.2ha).
