Reverse Level Detached House Hernes Nest, Bewdley Dy12 2et


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4

A substantial reverse level detached house for refurbishment/remodelling with views in the upper reaches of Bewdley midway along Hernes Nest - a leafy non-through road off Park Lane!. 'Sky high' potential and of equal interest to both owner occupiers and developers alike. Energy Rating: E. STOURPORT OFFICE 01299 822060. DESCRIPTION

BACKGROUND – The property is now to be sold with immediate vacant possession under instructions from Executors in order to close an estate! It has been within its current ownership since 1988.

THE PROPERTY - A spacious 4 bedroom reverse level house. When built it would have been very 'leading edge' and contemporary in style. Pushed to realise its full potential, with Architectural styling, then without question it could achieve those same highs again! It would be very easy to imagine a face-lifted more commanding frontage and 'walls of glass' etc. Albeit the property would now benefit from refurbishment and remodelling it would still have the capability to function fairly adequately 'as is' to suit those seeking immediate occupation and looking for a long term project.

LOCATION - Historic Bewdley is an acutely sought after place to live and with special reason. It takes its name from the French words “Beau Lieu” meaning “Beautiful Place” and has been described as the “most perfect small Georgian town in Worcestershire”. This vibrant town is packed with plentiful amenities including a wealth of restaurants/character public houses and is built on the banks of the River Severn, offering a rich and scenic landscape which draws visitors from far and wide the whole year round. This part of Bewdley offers particularly simple motoring accessibility to the bypass and therefore surrounding towns. There is also quick access to the outstandingly beautiful Wyre Forest National Nature Reserve which is literally just down the road and spreads out over some 6000 acres!

Hernes Nest as a premier location only about half a mile or 10 minutes' walk distant from the town yet in spite of this close proximity it is a leafy unadopted lane which serves to create a much more rural feel to this town property, therefore giving the best of both worlds. Please see the additional photographs illustrating the very pleasant street scene.

AGENTS COMMENTS - Here then is an extraordinary chance to create your dream Bewdley home at an affordable price. Subject to requisite consents there is sky high potential for imaginative remodelling and with the help of the right Architect then the results could be spectacular seeing the creation of a stunning 'statement' property of great originality.

AGENTS NOTE ONE - REPORT ON CRACKING TO THE REAR ELEVATION - A report dated 29 October 2019 from Surveyors & Consulting Engineers Roger Knight & Co, is available from the agents Stourport office upon request and can be emailed immediately. That said, prospective purchasers should bear in mind that the report was commissioned for the seller and not third parties. It is nevertheless a useful and informative document but gives no warranty or guarantee to third parties in any way. Prospective purchasers should make their own independent enquires if deemed necessary. As an executive summary the report does not recognise the cracking is being an issue given its longstanding nature - over 30 years. It is therefore suggested to be non-progressive a simple 'Heli-Bar' repair is recommended.

AGENTS NOTE TWO - These particulars are prepared in good faith and in the spirit of trying to be helpful and informative. However prospective purchaser should, obviously, make their own detailed enquiries in respect of all Planning Matters, etc. and we, as Agents, give no guarantee, or warranty, whatsoever.

AGENTS NOTE THREE: The sale of the property will be subject to the Grant of Probate before completion can take place. Therefore, this will prevent a very quick transaction but all is in hand and progressing.

Services - Mains water, drainage, electricity and gas.
