3 bedroom cottage for saleHigh Street, Bewdley
Sold by Us £299,999
General Property Information An impressive grade ll listed building within sought after location. Close to amenities and with both parking and garden. Extremely well presented and maintained with many period features. Boasting spacious cellar, 2 reception rooms, dining kitchen, 3 double bedrooms, en suite and family bathroom.
A fine example of a grade ll listed character property, situated in the heart of Bewdley. Maintained and refurbished to an excellent standard by the current owners and certainly a credit to them. Believed to be over 300 years old, with wonderful exposed timbers and high ceilings. The timbers quite easily could have come from other local property or perhaps from ships bringing in cargo on the river Severn. Either way it makes for a good story! Certainly in the mid 1800s this property was a bakery business and place to live all in one.
More recently a wonderful spacious family home. The current owner eloquently talks about being the 'guardian' of this historic building.
In more detail the property comprises delightful reception room with inglenook fireplace and wood burner, dining kitchen, great cellar split into storage and utility areas, with access into the garden. First floor finds another reception room with exposed brick walling and a bedroom with en suite.
On the second floor is a family bathroom and two further bedrooms. All windows are wooden, some double glazed whilst others benefit secondary glazing in keeping with tradition. Gas central heating is fitted.
Outside to the rear is a pleasant private courtyard with decking. There is careful planting, space for tubs and planters and entertaining too. Fully enclosed with pedestrian access to side. From some rooms there are views towards Wassell Wood and closer to home, Jubilee Gardens.
The extra bonus here are the two parking spaces, which are to be sold with the house. These are located behind the Manor House, which is opposite the property.
The area is most pleasing and as most folk have been in situ a long time, a community within a community has developed. I am told the neighbours are delightful.
From here you can stroll to the local pub which serves food, admire the flora and fauna in Jubilee Gardens, feed the swans on the river, walk into town and enjoy a coffee with friends. Enjoy shopping in the town, some shops offering local produce, watch a film in St Georges Hall and enjoy all of this without the use of the car! Handy for everything.
For the more energetic, Golden Valley or Wyre Forest both on the doorstep, with fabulous scenery and wildlife. Train enthusiasts amongst us can actually see the Seven Valley Railway from the rear bedrooms.
Experience the wonderful bygone era of the steam trains leaving Bewdley station and chugging along the line on their journey through the Severn Valley, alongside the river at times all the way to Bridgnorth. Magic And the bonus is that residents get a reduced rate to travel on the trains.
So for those who wish to live within the town and in a charming home, look no further and add this to the wish list to view. You will be disappointed if you don't. So lets begin the journey through
