A 21st Century Business in a Traditional 18th Century Setting.
The Bromesberrow Estate is a traditional agricultural estate of 1,140 acres at the southern end of the Malvern Hills with good access to the M50 & M5. This vibrant business is engaged in agriculture, forestry, residential and commercial property. Approximately twenty-five people are employed in the various enterprises on the estate.
For most of the last two and a half centuries the estate income came from two arable farms, and grazing in the orchards, the parkland, and on Chase End Hill.
Forestry has always been actively managed and now supplies firewood for the biomass boiler at Bromesberrow Place and wood burning stoves in rented property across the estate.
Over the last twenty-five years there has been active diversification.
Former agricultural cottages and redundant farm buildings have been refurbished for residential and commercial tenants. There are 27 cottages and 7 commercial tenancies.
At the centre of the estate is Bromesberrow Place, a Regency Greek revival (grade 2*) house.
Built in 1768. The house was remodelled for David Ricardo, the celebrated economist in 1820 for his son Osman. The architect was George Basevi, who was the first cousin of Benjamin Disraeli and famous for the Fitzwilliam museum in Cambridge and Belgrade Square and Pelham Crescent in London.
The house is open to the public by appointment under certain conditions.
