Dreaming of a period property? Check out this Grade II-listed farmhouse, complete with 10 acres, stables and a sand school

  • Grove Farm is an “exceptional” Grade II-listed equestrian property in the village of Lincomb, Worcestershire, offering four bedrooms over three floors and far-reaching views of the Malvern Hills.

    The origins of the period home dates back over 500 years and the house boasts plenty of character, including a delightful timber frame and exposed oak inside. Set in 10 acres of fields and grounds – including a small orchard – the property enjoys brilliant equestrian facilities. It is on the market with estate agent Fine & Country with a price tag of £1.35m.

    The farmhouse is approached via a wooden gate and a gravel driveway leads to ample parking in front of the property. There is a large garage come storage barn next to the separate two-bedroom annexe, which is named “The Boat House”.

    The facilities include a stable yard comprising four stables, a hay barn, feed room and eight post-and-rail-fenced paddocks — all on soil that drains superbly due to the sandstone substrate. There is hardstanding and parking for a horsebox, while the yard also has a water supply, lighting, electricity and a security system. In addition, there are three mobile stables situated behind the yard and a 40x20m sand school was installed in 2017. The set-up is just a stone’s throw away from Lincomb Equestrian Centre.

    Inside the house, the main reception hall boasts red-stone flooring and leads to a large sitting room, which has a feature fireplace and log-burning stove. Exposed beams and the inglenook fireplace make this a very cosy room and perfect for relaxed afternoons after riding.

    The kitchen has been renovated by the current owners and includes a useful breakfast island. There is a dining area with a solid fuel burner and leads to the newly added oak-framed extension, which can be used as a further family room or entertaining area. A handy utility room is located alongside the boot room and downstairs toilet.

    The Boat House is a self-contained annexe, comprising a large sitting room with a feature fireplace and doors leading to a patio area outside, while a cast-iron spiral staircase leads to the first floor. This separate property is perfect for elderly relatives, teenagers or could be used to generate rental income.
