One of Worcestershire’s finest country homes sold within days

The Woodlands, named as one of Worcestershire’s finest country homes, has recently sold for the first time since 1999, with an asking price of £2,200,000.

The Woodlands Country Home Living Room

Located in the village of Low Habberley, between Kidderminster and Bewdley, this magnificent property is set in over 8 acres of gardens and paddocks.
Ross D’Aniello, Sales Director for the selling agents Nock Deighton says, “It was an enormous privilege to have been given instructions to sell The Woodlands, our clients undertook an extensive refurbishment and modernisation programme in recent years with exquisite attention to detail. Every roof tile and window was replaced or renovated, it really is a remarkable home and unsurprisingly we had several buyers expressing strong interest.”

A handsome and imposing residence, The Woodlands was originally built around 1880 for the local entrepreneur and industrialist Edward Hughes who is said to have positioned the property such that he could see the smoke rising from the chimneys of his carpet factories in the nearby town of Kidderminster. Being built during the mid-Victorian period the property still displays many fine original features including rooftop finials, splayed bay windows and exquisite external joinery. Each and all have been restored to their original condition, with no expense spared.

Mr D’Aniello continues, “We understand that during the second world war the property was requisitioned by the Army in order to billet troops that manned the search light station at nearby Trimpley. When the war had finished, the property was returned to private ownership and the property slowly declined until our clients purchased the property and used their vision to undertake an extensive campaign of renovation and restoration to create the magnificent home that it is today. It really is a very special country house, there were several disappointed buyers who missed out.”
