A complete refurbishment doesn’t have to mean a property loses its heart and soul, as Old Hall in Worcestershire demonstrates. James Fisher is watching.
We here at Country Life are enjoying a transformation – what could be more sustainable and eccentric than taking an old space and transforming it into something new?
Old Hall at Elmley Castle is one such example where the owner purchased the Grade II listed 14th-century village town hall and built a spacious three-bedroom semi-detached house.
The converted property is now up for sale across the Hamptons with an estimated price of £595,000.
Situated on the village’s main street, the outside of the house looks almost identical to what it might have been when it was first built, but inside the clever architecture has opened up large spaces to create a home that feels breathtakingly modern yet looks very much in touch with its legendary roots. .
The highlight should definitely be the open plan kitchen/dining/living room on the ground floor, which blends in beautifully with the mezzanine on the ground floor from which you can access the bedrooms.
There are two bedrooms in total on three floors with a potential third bedroom in the mezzanine (as currently installed).
Large window frames mean the entire property is flooded with light and the village of Elmley Castle offers many amenities including a pub, parish church, school and most importantly a cricket club.
Situated at the foot of Bredon Hill, Elmley Castle is ideally located for access to nearby towns including Pershore, Evesham and Worcester, yet rural enough to enjoy all the pleasures of the surrounding countryside.
The old hall is currently for sale through the Hamptons for an estimated price of £595,000 – see more photos or ask an agent for more information.
