Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Glenhurst is an exquisite Grade ll Listed Georgian townhouse of the highest order. This historic property, built in the early 18th Century has gracious proportions and symmetry. Architectural
in intention, the house has stylistic characteristics
typical of the period, which remain incredibly appealing to this day.
Sitting in an elevated position on the north side of the river Severn in Bewdley, Glenhurst enjoys a private position with walled gardens surrounding
the property. The sweeping gravel drive winds through mature yew and beech trees with a tantalising view up the lawn, through the original
entrance and its wrought iron gates, to the majestic house beyond.
The interior of the house does not disappoint.
Arranged over three floors, with generous dimensions and high ceilings, the accommodation
has natural light running throughout and presents
modern amenities such as the excellent open plan
kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke, handmade
units, marble worktops and 3 oven Aga with 2 oven electric module and gas hob, alongside
reception rooms bursting with character and charm. It is reputed that Stanley Baldwin, 1st Earl
Baldwin of Bewdley, a Conservative statesman who held the title of Prime Minister three times and dominated government between the world wars, hosted meetings in the splendid panelled dining room. Sir Winston Churchill, Baldwin’s Chancellor of the Exchequer, may well have been present! This room, as with much of the house, leaves one with a wonderful sense of nostalgia and only adds to desirability.
Just off the kitchen/breakfast room – very much
the heart of the home - the large courtyard to the
rear is a wonderful feature and provides suntraps
to enjoy a coffee, al fresco lunch, or a gin and tonic depending on the time of day! Also accessed from the kitchen are the cellars boasting vaulted ceilings and plenty of space for a wine collection as well as party room, games rooms and/or cinema room.
The impressive staircase climbs through the floors
giving access to the bedrooms and bathrooms
which are largely directed with views over the
gardens and beyond.
The current owners previously had planning
permission to build a three storey extension into a
corner of the courtyard.

Coach House
Across the courtyard and benefitting from its own
entrance and driveway, the Coach House is a
separate two bedroom property with sitting room,
kitchen and shower room. This provides excellent
annexe accommodation and/or as a holiday let
(subject to consent)

Bewdley in North Worcestershire became an
important medieval settlement and continued to be a significant port along the river Severn in the post medieval period. In the 17th and 18th Centuries it became one of the most important inland ports in the country as a focus of trade between the midlands and Bristol. Wealth followed and much of the housing stock and the town as it stands today are testament to this history.
A walk up Load Street to the High Street is bustling with independent shops and cafes, pubs and restaurants set into some classic Georgian red brick and stone property, as well as older medieval timber framed buildings.
At the head of Load Street is St Annes church,
presiding over the surrounding streets.
Glenhurst is conveniently located less than a five
minute walk away. En route to Load Street you will
cross the Grade I listed Bewdley Bridge which was
designed by the infamous 18th century engineer,
Thomas Telford. The bridge has far reaching views
over the town across to the Wyre Forest which
makes for a perfect day out offering a number of
walking, cycling, running, and horse trails.
Just 3.5 miles away is the large market town of Kidderminster which offers an even greater choice of amenities. Here, there are a number of independent schools including the prestigious
Winterfold House and Heathfield Knoll. Bewdley
itself has a number of state schools including Bewdley Primary School and the specialist
Wribbenhall School.
From Kidderminster there is a direct train to the city of Birmingham which takes just over 40
minutes, and a direct train into London in a little
over 2hrs.
The M5 and M42 motorways are easily accessible.

The main garden gently falls away from the
terrace at the front of the house. South west facing, this aspect enjoys sun most of the day and the walled gardens provide a captivating backdrop of immaculate lawn and borders of specimen shrubs and flowers. The property is enveloped with mature trees, creating one’s own oasis.
There are various useful stores including a oak
framed outbuilding; substantial in structure and an
excellent machinery store or workshop.
