Red Roof stands in an elevated setting above the River Severn and enjoys fantastic views towards Shrawley Woods, the Malvern Hills, Holt Fleet and Abberley. The nearby historic
village of Ombersley is renowned for its period houses and cottages together with a vast array of local facilities including primary school, delicatessen, bakery and butcher�s shop and public houses, along with fishing pools and thriving cricket and tennis clubs all centred around the parish church of St Andrew�s. There is also a well-regarded primary school in nearby Sytchampton.
More extensive facilities for shopping, leisure and education are found within the historic city of Worcester together with the centre of Kidderminster. This idyllic location also benefits from easy access to the M5 and the main motorway network.
Red Roof is a contemporary interpretation of classic Cotswold architecture, taking the best of the vernacular and combining it with craftsmanship and great attention to detail to create a stunning detailed country house. The property has been designed and orientated to take full advantage of the spectacular rural views over the gardens and beyond to a lake and the River Severn, the perfect natural habitat for a wealth of wildlife.
The property offers an amazing 4,463 sq. ft. of light and airy accommodation set out over three floors. A magnificent timber porch welcomes you to the front door and into the ground floor entrance hall. There is a very generous sitting room/kitchen which is the heart of the home with bi-fold doors which open onto a balcony. The kitchen is fitted with an excellent range of attractive bespoke country-style units by Prentice Furniture. Accessed from the hall is a snug, well-appointed utility and cloakroom.
A handsome staircase leads from the ground floor hall to the lower ground floor where there is a very spacious room extending to 923.67 sq. ft. with bi-fold doors opening to the garden terrace. There is also a study and a boiler room. Returning to the ground floor hall, the staircase leads up to the first floor landing which provides access to five bedrooms, each with a beautifully appointed bathroom or shower room. The principal bedroom enjoys access to a balcony.
Outside, the property is surrounded by gardens, with a field to the front through which runs the long gravelled drive leading to the house with gravelled parking area. There are lawned areas to the front and side of the house, with stone paved terraces to the rear. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn.
Fields lead down from the rear garden towards the River Severn which contains specimen Barbel and provides almost 400 metres of river frontage. There is access to these fields from the field at the front of the property, as well as from the garden. Of particular note is the lake which is a registered fishery with 17 river fishing pegs and 20 lake fishing pegs. The land and river is very accessible due to the road leading from the top drive.
In all, the land covers around 21 acres and is a perfect habitat for Otters, Swans, Kingfishers, Peregrine Falcons, Buzzards, Owls, Woodpeckers and a host of other birds.
There is a double garage with room/office over and a substantial barn extending to 986 sq. ft. There are two other very useful barns on the driveway entrance to Red Roofs which are both watertight and have electricity laid on.

Turn left at the petrol station onto Owlhill Lane, a single track road. Continue for just under two miles where the driveway leading to Red Roof will be found on the left.
