ACCOMMODATION:
Peacock House is situated on the edge of the town centre within a short walk of all its amenities, the River Severn and the countryside. Originally two separate buildings, the main house and the coach house have been thoughtfully integrated to provide a fabulous family home that works well as a whole but which also lends itself to provide semi-independent living for a dependent relative or an additional income stream by way of Bed and Breakfast or holiday letting accommodation.

In a playful nod to its name, the front door to the house benefits from bespoke stained glass panels featuring the eye markings on a Peacock's tail feathers. Once inside, the hallway leads off to an impressive 27ft formal drawing room, an open plan living/dining/kitchen area, boot room with cloakroom off, stairs down to a very useful converted basement area and stairs up to the main first floor accommodation which comprises an attractive galleried landing, master bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further double bedrooms and a family shower room.

The open plan living/dining/kitchen area forms the hub of the house with this contemporary and cleverly designed space seamlessly linking the two halves of the property whilst also opening out to the garden via bifold doors. A utility room leads off and through to a large integral garage which would have once formed part of the stables, with full height double timber doors opening to the front of the property and stairs down to a vaulted cellar beneath. The accommodation within the old coach house section also has access to the garden and comprises a snug and a study with stairs leading up to two double bedrooms, both of which enjoy en-suite facilities.

Enjoying a South Westerly aspect, the walled garden at Peacock House offers a level of privacy and calm that is unexpected for a town centre property. A paved seating area provides a secluded courtyard ideal for alfresco dining which leads on to a shaped lawn bordered with a fine selection of mature trees and shrubs with a garden shed and log store beyond. A gate to the rear of the garden opens out to a shared driveway at the side which leads up to another one of this fabulous property’s significant selling points, a double garage and a private car park with five parking bays and a vegetable plot to the rear.

History:
Peacock House and the Coach House were built around 1680 in the reign of Charles II. It was a public house for much of its history and A Survey of Bewdley Manor in 1785 listed the Peacock Public House as leasehold, held by Widow Johnson. The Crown Land Sale of 1870 noted 4 bedrooms, a brew house, a cellar, a parlour, a garden at rear and a pigsty! It remained a public house until 1884 when the landlord fell behind with his rent and it has remained as a private house ever since.

Location:
Situated on the banks of the River Severn and the edge of the Wyre Forest, Bewdley was once described as “the most perfect small town in Worcestershire”. The town enjoys a good choice of pubs, cafes and restaurants along with small independent shops, craft studios, a brewery, local museum and a number of churches. Being approximately 20 miles south west of Birmingham and 15 miles north of Worcester, Bewdley is served by a good motorway network with excellent links to the M5, M6, M40 and M42, Birmingham International Airport is approximately 45 minutes away and the main line train station in Kidderminster has regular services to and from Worcester, Malvern, Birmingham and London.

Schooling:
The town is fortunate to benefit from two primary schools and a high school, all rated as Good by Ofsted in their most recent inspections. The independent sector is also well catered for locally with a fine selection of schools available nearby in Kidderminster, Chaddesley Corbett, Abberley, Bromsgrove and Worcester.
