Bedrooms: 4
With stylish interiors, impressive dimensions and original Georgian features, Cleeve House is located in the grounds of Capability Brown-designed Georgian masterpiece, Croome Court, a quintessential English manor house now in the stewardship of the National Trust. Within easy reach of major transport links and yet in the heart of rural south Worcestershire, Cleeve House is a lifestyle property of immense charm and character.

Cleeve House (no 4 Dunstall Court) is one of a small and select number of exclusive period homes in the grounds of Georgian masterpiece Croome Court, a quintessential English manor house now in the stewardship of the National Trust. Located in the heart of south Worcestershire among the some 700 acres of the Croome Court estate, Cleeve House dates back to the mid 18th century and was once part of the stable block to the main mansion. The mansion and its ancillary buildings, as well as the extensive parkland, were designed by the renowned designer, Lancelot Capability Brown. Croome, the seat of the Coventry family, was Brown s first commission and the one which made his name, working in collaboration with Robert Adam on behalf of the then 6th Earl of Coventry. Now a stylish and distinguished home, Cleeve House offers buyers a slice of English architectural history in a delightful rural setting yet within convenient and easy reach of Birmingham, Bristol and Cheltenham, as well as Malvern, Pershore and Upton Upon Severn. London is just two hours away by rail from Worcestershire Parkway station, some four miles away, while the north Cotswolds are just a half hour drive away.


The approach to the property is unique and impressive. Entering via the London Arch, designed by Robert Adam and now the residents private access, the driveway sweeps down to Dunstall Court with a vista encompassing the Malvern Hills, the Capability Brown parkland and Croome Court mansion itself.

Grade II listed and believed to date from 1752, Cleeve House is built in red brick and bath stone under a pitched slate roof with beautiful and spacious accommodation over two floors. The property is ideal for those looking for a period home but with all the comforts of modern living, perfect either as a 'forever' home or as an easy 'lock up and leave', perhaps for those with another property or busy lifestyle.

With an elegant feel and classic Georgian features including arched, sash and oriel windows (many with fitted shutters), particularly well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings and solid marble fireplaces, Cleeve House has all the hallmarks of the stylish Georgian era but with some wonderful 21st century additions, including full fibre broadband, making remote working very easy.

In addition, the principal rooms all enjoy a south-facing aspect and lovely outlook across the courtyard to the parkland beyond. As a resident, there is unlimited access to more than 700 acres of historic parkland and the mansion itself.

There are also mainline railway stations at

Worcester, Pershore, Great Malvern and Malvern Link.
