A detached bungalow for refurbishment/remodelling - or more likely - complete replacement subject to requisite consents. Prime location and broad 0.42 of an acre plot providing for masses of parking and all sorts of scope for imaginative design to create a dream home.

Lucerne is to be sold on behalf of Executors in order to close an Estate. The property was purchased by the Late owner in the mid 1980's and at that stage was a timber chalet. This original structure was retained and 'skinned' around. Many prospective buyers will no doubt simply view Lucerne as a building plot but for those interested we have photographs reflecting the historic renovation works. We are told by the late owner's family that countless approaches to purchase Lucerne have been made over the years but always politely rebuffed and it now comes to the market for the first time in over 30 years.

Lucerne is found literally on the edge of the acutely sought after village of Areley Kings, being found on the Worcester side of Stourport and Rectory Lane is one of the most revered locations in Stourport. This lovely unspoilt area lies over the river and just one mile south west of Stourport town centre, which offers a range of shopping, leisure and recreational facilities. Areley Kings still remains very much a 'village style' community with amenities including two Public Houses, a Convenience Store, Post Office, Pharmacy, Newsagents, modern community village hall and a character Grade II Listed Church, namely St. Bartholomews which has an ancient history spanning 800 years. The vibrant Georgian riverside town of Bewdley is also very easy to get to from here!

Having a superb sheltered garden plot extending to 0.42 of an acre and commanding nice open aspects to the front with glimpses of Stagborough Hill and Ribbesford Woods. Please see the additional photographs illustrating the lane and adjoining countryside.
