£1m price tag for converted Victorian hop kiln on 5.8-acres in rural Worcestershire

A Victorian hop kiln in rural Worcestershire which has been beautifully converted into a spacious residential property is up for sale with Nicol & Co with a guide price of £1 million.

The Oast House is located on a 5.8-acre plot near Alfrick village, which lies just north of the Malvern Hills.

The property boasts three double bedrooms, three bathrooms and two reception rooms, with a detached garage that contains space for three cars and an additional workshop.

Erica Hinwood, sales manager at Nicol & Co’s Malvern office, explained that another benefit was full planning permission to demolish and rebuild a detached two-bedroomed annexe.

Ms Hinwood said: “This wonderful, detached hop kiln barn conversion is positioned next door to the beautiful Knapp and Papermill Nature Reserve.

“The barn is thought to have been originally built between 1860 and 1870 and was converted by the current owners fully utilising its unique, circular hop kiln design.

“Finished in 2012, the accommodation on the ground floor includes a breakfast kitchen, utility room, cloakroom with toilet, open plan lounge and dining room, plus a cosy snug positioned in one of the circular hop kiln rooms.

“The second circular room is home to the staircase leading to the first floor which has three double bedrooms, two benefitting from ensuites and a stunning bathroom above the snug with a central roll-top bathtub.

“The large, detached garage has space for three vehicles with an additional workshop space, all with electric roll top doors, and a further utility room with toilet.

“Planning permission has been granted to demolish the secondary property, called Knapp Farm, which can be replaced with a new detached, two-bedroomed annexe.”

Ms Hinwood said that the garden was mainly laid to lawn, with raised beds and fruit trees, and the wider grounds extended to an impressive 5.8 acres.

She added: “The land is set to pasture making this property ideal for equestrian pursuits or simply grazing livestock.”

The Oast House is connected to mains electricity and water and has a ground source heat pump, solar panels that are owned outright and a septic tank.
