A Distinctive Four Bedroom Detached Country Residence Less Than Half A Mile From Bewdley Commanding The Most Dramatic Views Of The Severn Valley & Rolling Hillside Beyond. Viewing A Must To Appreciate Recent Extensions & Renovations. 2347 Sq Ft. EPC = C

Situation: Bewdley (Beau Lieu - beautiful place) is a charming historic market town delightfully situated on the Severn, the longest river in Great Britain, steeped in history and was granted a Royal Charter in 1472 by Edward IV. The erection of the first bridge was in 1447 and the present stone ballustraded bridge was built in 1798 to plans by Thomas Telford. Within the town centre there are many buildings of historical and architectural interest and the architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner described it as 'the most perfect small Georgian town in Worcestershire.' The town served as an inland port for generations of merchants transporting goods from Shropshire and the Black Country down river to Worcester and the South West. The River Severn and the Wyre Forest, which covers some 600 acres to the West, provide excellent opportunity for recreational activities. Bewdley itself provides good local shopping and educational facilities whilst a greater range of business, leisure, shopping and educational facilities are available in Kidderminster, 3 miles, and the Cathedral city of Worcester, 15 miles. The M5 motorway at junction 4 is 11 miles distant and mainline rail services operate from Kidderminster to Birmingham New Street and London Paddington via Worcester. Birmingham International Airport approximately 28 miles distant. Educational facilities in Bewdley include Wribbenhall Middle School and Bewdley High School Sixth Form College.

The detached bungalow known as 'Hartington' is truly unique and must be viewed to appreciate. Not only with regards to the unique setting close to historic Bewdley but also to fully grasp what has been achieved with the previous schedule of improvements and extensions. The property is less than half a mile from Bewdley town and sits within hugely private grounds of over one acre, approached via a long driveway off Dowles Road. The views from the property and extensive grounds and terrace are nothing less than dramatic, taking in the stunning vista that is the Severn Valley, with the river at its centre and the famous steam railway winding along its banks, all of which are visible from the bungalow. Beyond this in the distance can be seen the hills of Trimpley and Clent. Beautiful at all times of year, whether it be Autumn with the accompanying morning mists that cling to the valley floor, or Spring when the trees come to life and create a lush green patchwork of countryside. The sellers inform us also that the grounds themselves are a haven to a plethora of wildlife, including Woodpeckers. The property has previously been transformed, with substantial extension and a comprehensive refurbishment, including not only decor and new bathrooms, en suites and kitchen, but also rewiring and plumbing. Extensive landscaping of the grounds and parking area complete the project. The bungalow now provides four bedrooms, the master with bi-fold doors opening on to the terrace and taking in the views.
