Overview - Penrose is a modern and detached 4 bedroom house located within a popular and quiet cul-de-sac in the close knit, market town of Tenbury Wells. Built circa 1970, Penrose has been renovated within recent years by the current owner from what was previously a very tired and dated house to what is now a well presented, spacious family home which fully caters for 21st century living to include a newly installed kitchen and bathroom suite. Available to purchase with no upward chain this superb dwelling benefits from many desirable features to include 4 sizeable bedrooms, a large open-plan lounge diner, a family bathroom and a downstairs shower room, while outside there is a driveway providing off road parking along with an attached garage, a lawned front garden and a private east facing rear garden. The perfect family home!

For new owners with children the dwelling is suitably positioned just half a mile away from the towns playing/sports fields, secondary school and leisure centre/swimming pool and is also conveniently less than a quarter of a mile level walk from the vibrant town centre (Teme Street) with its many independently owned shops and facilities. Overall Penrose is a good-sized, well maintained house situated in a convenient and desirable position which is simply ready for the new owners to move their belongings straight in, put their feet up and start calling this delightful property, home.

Penrose also offers further scope for expansion if required in the way of a sizeable rear extension along the entire width of house which was granted full planning permission at the very end of 2014 (Application Number 14/01419/HOU) by Malvern Hills District Council. The current approved drawings are for a single storey extension which would see the current kitchen and dining areas double in size as well as the addition of a large downstairs office/study which could also be used as a fifth bedroom with the downstairs shower room being easily accessible just off. Upstairs planning permission has also been granted to create an en-suite shower room which would serve what is currently bedroom two and would in-turn create the master suite. For drawings or more information please contact the office.

The Property - Approached over a tarmacadam driveway the front door opens into an entrance hall which has separate doors leading into the attached garage, downstairs shower room, kitchen and lounge diner, while stairs rise up to the first floor accommodation. Further doors lead into a useful storage cupboard and outside to the rear garden. The downstairs shower room is installed with a matching white suite of w.c, wash basin and a shower cubicle with a glazed shower screen, while there is also a window to rear. The kitchen is found at the rear of the property and is installed with matching wall and base units with fitted worktops over and an inset stainless steel sink unit.

The kitchen is complete with part tiled walls, an airing cupboard housing the boiler and a window which provides a view over the rear garden. A door leads from the kitchen into the lounge diner. L-Shaped and formally two separate rooms, the sizeable lounge diner is now a light and airy space owing to 3 windows overlooking the front gardens and fully glazed sliding patio doors which lead out to the decking area and rear garden. There is a ample for a three-piece-suite and set of dining table and chairs, while a gas fire adds a focal point to the room and a door leads back into the entrance hall. Potentially the room offers scope to be converted into an open-plan kitchen diner by taking down the wall between the kitchen and dining area. The property also has planning permission granted for a single storey extension to the rear of the kitchen and dining area, which could also create a large open plan kitchen diner. The property really does offer a variety of options for further scope.

Bedrooms one and two are both sizeable rooms and share similar frontward aspects and both benefit from useful built-in wardrobes.
