Here is an excellent example of a Grade 11 listed Elizabethan town house which although offers all modern day conveniences has also retained many charming and original character features. It is situated within walking distance of shops and facilities in Tenbury Wells, locally known as “the town in the orchard” and is on the borders of three counties of Shropshire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire.

Humbug House has a varied history, once being a sweet shop, hence its name. It is also believed to have been a public house, a cobblers, a taxidermist and a fishing tackle shop. The garden is particularly pleasing and has been featured in 25 Beautiful Gardens Magazine.

The present owners have taken great care in retaining as many of the original and character features as possible. The reception hall leads into a spacious through sitting room, a focal point being a carved wooden fire place which was once in a manor house near Shrewsbury. As well as the kitchen there is a further reception room currently used as a library with bespoke bookcases. The kitchen has work tops made from black polished concrete with reclaimed French tiles above. There is a gas fired Esse and an integrated dishwasher. A utility room, with bespoke cupboard housing the boiler and plumbing for washing machine, leads into an attractive garden room with double doors opening into the garden.

An original oak staircase rises to the first floor and to the master bedroom which has a Victorian fireplace, exposed oak floor boards and wall timbers and two built in wardrobes. There are two further bedrooms again with exposed beams and oak floor boards. The bathroom, created by the present owners, is luxurious. There is a Georgian fireplace and wall panelling. A French mahogany unit with a marble top houses two wash basins. There is a stand alone bath, wc and exposed elm floor boards. A separate shower room has a newly fitted large marble shower cubicle with bespoke glass frameless doors, wash basin and wc.

The south westerly facing garden at the rear attracts most of the day time sunshine. This award winning garden is a delight. It is partly walled with gravelled pathways meandering through the flower beds. There is a full width terrace at the rear leading down to the main garden area and various sitting out areas have been strategically placed to take advantage of both the sun and shade. There is a pergola covered with a mature grape vine and rustic trellis leading to the large vegetable and kitchen garden. In the garden is a shed, garden shores, potting shed and two green houses. At the rear of the garden is a gate to the parking area. There is a gated side pedestrian passage way between the house and the church.
