GENERAL INFORMATION Rarely available and certainly an extremely unique property. However, before the tour of the building takes place, a little piece of history.

Rope making in Bewdley started in the early 19th century, hence 'Rope Walk' remains the name of this historic site.

Several of the buildings, which would have been working or storage buildings in Rope Walk have been converted over time into residential homes. In this quiet backwater of Bewdley, adjacent to the Severn Valley Railway viaduct, itself another piece of history, now a great visitor attraction in Bewdley are fine cottage style homes.

Rope Walk is a courtyard being part walled with view of the Railway. A tranquil peaceful place with of course no passing traffic. Its location remaining a mystery to many, as the access is not obvious to the passer by.

The Stilts, 1 Rope Walk is a striking building, of brick with a pitched tiled roof which, we understand was the original office for the Lowes Rope Works. Originally there was no ground floor at all only steps up to entrance of the office on the first floor.

In 1999, when the current owner purchased, the building would have stood empty for several years and would have still been office space only. A major refurbishment of the building was undertaken, with the ground floor added at that time.

Now a delightful detached period property, offering no upward chain, with an abundance of history.
It retains charm and character and includes its own part walled garden, ample parking spaces, together with visitor parking.

The Stilts needs to be seen to appreciate all that is on offer.

Exposed curved brick headers over the restored original cast iron windows fitted with further double glazed internal windows, to reflect the shape and how the old and new compliment each other.

Exposed timbers in the hallway, faux beams in the lower rooms, stained wood skirting boards, with ledge and brace doors alongside modern creature comforts including gas central heating and an alarm system.

The location is ideal for those wanting a leisurely stroll into town, a walk along the riverside or a visit to the steam railway. A real ale pub is literally around the corner as is a bus stop, petrol garage with convenience shop attached.

Currently the Stilts has two first floor rooms with windows to two elevations. Both spacious and ideal for lounge and dining kitchen. There are two loft areas, two lower ground floor bedrooms, one having a built in cupboard and a separate shower room.

This would make a perfect holiday retreat or a home for those seeking a unique property in an excellent location. Fabulous for the train enthusiast too. Become that child for a moment and wave at the passengers as they begin the journey on the steam train as it chugs out of the station.

The building is accessed by wooden steps rising to an East facing decked balcony, ideal for seating, tubs and planters and of course views of the railway. External gas and electric meter, with outside lighting.

Front door allows access into reception area with super galleried loft areas, exposed roof timbers and roof window. Built in cupboard housing alarm. Radiator with TRV, four wall light points, one ceiling light point and two power points. Stairs descending to the bedrooms and shower room.

AMENITIES NEARBY A real ale pub, which is just a short level walk from the property. There are further pubs, again within the vicinity. A petrol garage open early till late with Co Op convenience store attached. Church, parish rooms, bus stop, river and countryside.

For the railway enthusiast the trains can be enjoyed from the decking, however the station is literally a short walk away. The Severn Valley Railway is open from Half Term until after Christmas each year and hosts several events during this timetable. 1940s weekends, Thomas the Tank and of course the Santa Special. Quite often you will see a fillm crew somewhere along the line from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth, staging a documentary or television drama. All most enthralling and exciting.

West Midlands Safari Park is just outside of Bewdley. Many visitors flock there each year to enjoy the animals. This too has featured on mainstream television. The park is set for major development and expansion. Thrilling times for them and Bewdley.
