EPC = E. 3,464 Sq Ft.
Description: A unique opportunity to own this impressive courtyard of period barns, some of which are yet to be converted for habitation, thus providing incredible scope to substantially enlarge the existing property or to develop in to several separate dwellings for investment/resale/let (subject to securing relevant planning permissions.) The current owner has already started this process by converting one section of said outbuildings in to a fantastic self-contained two bedroom annexe which currently generates around £795 rental income per calendar month.
Enjoying a most enviable rural position on the banks of the river Severn and adjoining the edge of Wyre Forest nature reserve. Being around one mile distant from Bewdley the owner of this property can enjoy all the benefits of a tranquil rural lifestyle whilst being within walking distance of the historic town and accompanying amenities. A public footpath adjoining the grounds of the property leads all the way along the river both to Arley and Bewdley and links up with many miles of bridleways running through the heart of Wyre Forest woodland.
The property is approached via a shared track from Dowles Road with a substantial gravelled parking area to be found at the front property of the barns, in addition to a large covered carport. At the rear is a detached barn / double garage suitable for housing at least two vehicles and having three double glazed windows at the side.
The main dwelling is a versatile layout, comprising hallway, living room and large open plan sitting room and dining area with exposed beams, vaulted ceiling and stairs rising to the first floor. Also on the ground floor is a breakfast kitchen, three double bedrooms and two bathrooms. To the first floor is a delightful fourth bedroom which features en suite shower room and fantastic balcony window which opens right out to provide superb views across the grounds and Severn valley beyond.
The annexe called 'The Hayloft' is immediately adjoining the main building and represents a high quality self-contained property beautifully presented and with many character features. On the ground floor can be found an excellent living room with rural views and attractive fireplace, plus a spacious breakfast kitchen styled to a contemporary finish with a door leading to the courtyard garden. On the first floor are two double bedrooms and a bathroom. 'The Hayloft' also comes complete with parking at the front and it's own low maintenance garden which adjoins the main courtyard beyond.
As previously mentioned, there remains a huge range of outbuildings which are yet to be converted, all of which border the main courtyard. Next to the annexe is a covered driftway which is extensive in size with high ceiling. This is currently used for storage but could possibly be linked to the annexe or used for additional garaging. This driftway leads in to the main courtyard where the rest of the buildings are to be found. These comprise two single storey sections plus two double storey buildings, all of which are rich in rustic character detail such as exposed beams and flagstone flooring. Subject to planning these offer a buyer many different ways to tap in to this extra square footage, either to create one extensive barn when finished or multiple additional units.
The grounds of the property are a real asset, being incredibly private and offering views across neighbouring fields and riverside. Equating to just shy of five acres and being incredibly diverse, with the splendid sheltered courtyard giving way to formal garden and then mature woodland. There is even part of the old railway line which in the past used to run through the forest to the other side of the river via a bridge. At the rear of the property is a superb sunken garden which overlooks the valley and has many mature plants and trees including monkey puzzle and sycamore. From here pathways lead in to the accompanying woodland which gradually drops down to the riverside. The superb courtyard has a large lawned area, circular bed with mature trees, gravelled borders and a greenhouse.
