THE PROPERTY

Located in beautiful Abbots Bromley, this is rare opportunity to own a detached family home in this award winning village. The fantastic price of this home alludes to the home requiring refurbishment throughout and therefore this is an attractive proposition for developers. The house sits on a generous plot featuring two gardens and a rear yard and once refurbished it will make a fabulous home with large rooms throughout.

Approaching from Bagot Street, there is a service road that runs past the house where a right of way allows the owners to park in a marvellous detached double garage. There is a driveway however the right of way states that it must remain clear to allow turning for the neighbouring property. The front garden is a large private space that is raised from Bagot Street behind a retaining brick wall. The entrance to the home is from the side of the property where viewers will immediately be impressed by the space on offer. With the staircase to the left, there is an open storage space underneath perfect for coats and shoes to be kept. As well as the staircase, from the entrance hall there are doors leading to the lounge, a welcome ground floor WC and the dining room to the rear.

Starting with the lounge, this is an incredible large room that is more than enough to be used as one reception area. As the photos show, there is a sofa suite arranged around the vast, curved feature fireplace which still leaves a large area to the left hand side of the room potentially for a second dining area. The reason the lounge is so large is that this front part of the house is wider than the remainder, and therefore this explains how there is a rear window in the lounge aswell as two large front windows allowing an abundance of natural light.

The dining room at the rear of the house is an excellent square room that also has a feature fireplace with a multi-fuel burner. On the subject of fuel, the property isn’t connected to mains gas and therefore there is an oil-fired central heating system installed with a large tank out to the rear by the garage and a recently replaced Worcester base-mounted boiler in the kitchen. The kitchen is where we go next as there is an opening from the dining room through to this long galley style kitchen. As part of the refurbishment, the kitchen will want replacing but the main feature is that there is plenty of length on offer as well as two windows to the side. Finally there is a rear exit door to the yard (more on the below).

Moving upstairs, the first floor landing is the same generous size as the hallway below and therefore there is the ability to utilise the extra space as a study area, as demonstrated by the current owner in the photo. The landing has an extra recess to the rear allowing access to a total of three bedrooms and the family bathroom. All three bedrooms in this home are a tremendous double size and with the master bedroom at the front including an en suite shower room and bedroom two to the rear having access to a handy eaves storage area. The master bathroom, like the en suite, is the original 1970’s suite but is a great size to fit a new stylish suite with shower over the bath if desired. Above the first floor, the property has a large loft space.

Finishing outside, immediately from the kitchen door is a low maintenance walled yard which is perfect for patio furniture and ideal for entertaining (a barbecue area for example). Unique curved steps lead up to a passageway that leads to a lovely garden space that features a lawn, shallow pond and shrubbery to the borders. The detached double garage keeps the rear garden extremely private and quiet. Entrance to the garage is found via a side door located near to the steps down to the yard. Once inside, viewers will be amazed at the size as there is a wonderful pitched roof offering further storage potential. As well as a garage, this could double up as a magnificent workshop or gymnasium as there are two separate garage doors opening up many options.  

TRANSPORT LINKS

One of the endearing feature of Abbots Bromley is that it is very rural and away from the hustle and bustle of urban areas. Therefore, commuters will use mainly country routes to get to the nearest towns which, if anything, minimises the time that drivers will sit in traffic. The nearest major destinations are Rugeley, Uttoxeter, Burton on Trent, Lichfield and Stafford.

The nearest train station is Rugeley Trent Valley, which lies on the Chase Line and the West Coast Main Line. Therefore from this station there are services to London Euston, Birmingham New Street, Walsall and Cannock.

On Bagot Street there are bus stops with a fairly regular service operating between Burton upon Trent and Uttoxeter.

SCHOOLS & AMENITIES

Abbots Bromley has a highly regarded independent school, Abbots Bromley School, which schools children from infants all the way through to sixth form. For comprehensive schools, the village has the Richard Clarke First School which is rated Good (2) by Ofsted, whereas the catchment secondary school is Thomas Alleyne’s School in Uttoxeter which runs a school bus service and also maintains a Good (2) rating.

As mentioned previously, Abbots Bromley is a picturesque village that has local shops and businesses such as a butchers, gift store, convenience store and, of course, public houses. The village is also a short drive from Blithfield Reservoir which is popular amongst wildlife observers.
