This beautiful seven bedroom house overlooks the glorious Worcestershire countryside.

As the founder of one of Worcestershire’s most prestigious estate agencies and a former High Sheriff of the county, Andrew Grant has crossed the threshold of every grand house in the area. Given that country-house prices there are still some 20% lower than 2007 levels, he can’t understand why the owner of, say, a £10 million house in London, would not seize the opportunity to downsize slightly in the capital and buy a fine, well-placed country seat such as Napleton House, near the ancient Saxon village of Kempsey, four miles from Worcester, eight miles from Pershore and nine miles from Malvern.

Napleton House hallBuilt in the early 18th century, reputedly on the site of a Roman villa, the classic Georgian house was remodelled in Victorian times and owned at one time by the Marquess of Blandford. It stands in a magical private setting overlooking glorious countryside and the Malvern Hills.

The Worcester office of Andrew Grant (01905 734735) quotes a guide price of £1.895m for this carefully renovated, unspoilt period gem, set in more than 20 acres of gardens and grounds, with some 7,750sq ft of accommodation on four floors, including four main reception rooms, a conservatory, an orangery, a kitchen/ breakfast room, seven bedrooms and six bathrooms.

Napleton House gardenIt comes with planning consent to build a stable block and manège and to convert the coach house into a detached four-bedroom house.

The guide price is £1.895m. For further information about Napleton House please contact Andrew Grant on 01905 734735.
