The living accommodation itself is impressive, but if you have a love of horses, this midcentury-style house and equestrian facility in Cradley, Malvern, Worcestershire just might be for you.
Bandini dates back to 1967, individually designed, but very much inspired by the midcentury era and built to take advantage of the sun and the views of the surrounding Worcestershire countryside. It’s not exclusively for people who want to keep horses, but if you don’t, you’ll probably be wasting all the facilities provided for that purpose. More on those later.
Let’s look at the house first. Steps lead up to the front door and into the hall where a short flight of stairs takes you into the sitting room with windows spanning the whole of one wall, as well as a stone open fireplace. Sliding doors open onto the terrace and a further door opens into the ‘chalet style’ dining room with vaulted ceiling and more views of the surroundings.
There’s also a fully-fitted kitchen/breakfast room, an inner hall with airing cupboard, additional built-in storage and doors out to the terrace, a master bedroom with built-in wardrobes and en-suite bathroom, two further bedrooms, a fourth bedroom currently used as a study and a family bathroom with separate WC.
That’s only half the story though. Outside, you’ll find electric gates ands a drive, leading to large landscaped gardens, a double garage connecting to a utility room and large boiler room, as well as a workshop, a wooden stable block (with six stables), a hay room and tack/feed room with an additional hay barn and separate barn for machinery plus another outbuilding with space to park additional vehicles or garden machinery. There are ‘two good paddocks’ enclosed by post and rail fencing.
