A GRADE-II listed pub in Hartlebury has been transformed into three luxury homes.

Redevelopment of the former Talbot public house off Worcester Road has now completed and one of the new dwellings has already been sold.

The two remaining dwellings, which together make up The Barrells and Stone House, are now being marketed for sale by Nicol & Co.

The huge 17th century farmhouse became The Dog Inn for many years, with an old turnpike road next to it known as Dog Lane. It was then renamed the Dealers’ Inn in the 19th century before emerging as The Talbot.

Matt Nicol, managing director of Nicol & Co, said: “We really are very proud to be marketing The Barrels and the Stone House for sale.

“Both properties have been thoughtfully and sympathetically created within The Talbot’s grade II-listed building and have retained great character and charm while offering all the latest utilities and facilities for modern day living.

“Hartlebury is a picturesque village that lies between Kidderminster and Worcester with good commuter links via the A449, and with the M5 motorway easily accessible.

“It’s surrounded by rolling countryside but also has rail links to Birmingham, Worcester and even a direct train into London Marylebone from Kidderminster.

“The much sought-after village has a public house, church and post office which is over the road from this exclusive development, a good primary school and a Grade I-listed castle that dates back to the 13th century.”

The Barrels is a three-bedroom family home positioned around what was once the hostelry’s entrance and offers 2,500 sq ft of accommodation.

The entrance through The Talbot’s original door opens into a spacious hallway leading to a lounge and a second large room serving as a kitchen, dining and family area, leading directly out to the back garden.

There is also a three-part cellar accessed from the hallway that has been converted into various spaces that could be an entertainment room, a gym or cinema room.

As well as three bedrooms upstairs, one of which is en-suite, there is a family bathroom and a mezzanine area which could be a library or office.

The Barrels is available for offers over £425,000.

The Stone House is a four-bedroomed family home that features an attractive guest bedroom suite and master bedroom with en-suite - available for offers over £350,000.
