This superb period property is packed with a wealth of delightful features including oak beams and floorboards, attractive fireplaces, picture rails and sash windows. The accommodation footprint is extensive, with large room sizes throughout including four double bedrooms, a loft room currently utilised as a gym, an excellent family kitchen, a spacious reception hall and a dining room plus the most amazing first floor living room with window seats and river views.

Outside, there is a parking space to the front and a secluded walled courtyard at the rear incorporating a wonderful outbuilding, with vaulted ceiling and amazing potential for conversion to an office or studio space.

The current owners have tastefully upgraded the property in keeping with the character, improvements which include quality Karndean flooring throughout the entire ground floor and a high-quality 'Magnet' kitchen featuring solid wood units and an island.

Description
The property is approached from Kidderminster Road via a passageway, which leads to the entrance door at the side of the house. Once through the lovely red period door one is greeted by a fantastic reception hall, which oozes charm and character, with a rustic feature fireplace, an oak beam, attractive lighting, quality Karndean flooring and built-in cupboards with fantastic period fronts. Stairs rise from here to the first floor and doors radiate nicely to the other ground floor rooms.

Situated at the rear, there is a spacious dining room featuring a lovely fireplace housing a 'Gazco' gas stove, Karndean flooring, wall lights, the boiler cupboard, a picture rail, and a stable door leading to the courtyard garden.

A wonderful family kitchen completes the downstairs accommodation, generous in size and finished to a high quality. Comprising solid wood wall and base cupboards with an accompanying dresser, 'Rangemaster' oven with extractor above, integrated appliances comprising a microwave cooker, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge freezer. The kitchen also features an excellent central island unit which is able to seat five people and includes a cherry wood top to match the work surfaces and an inset ceramic sink. There is also a wall-mounted television, two sash windows, an oak ceiling beam and a rustic fireplace in the corner, with scope to add a wood burner, if required.

First floor
The upper floor accommodation is similarly spacious and full of character, with an adaptable layout which can be used in a number of different ways depending on requirements.

There is a fantastic living room, which is incredibly spacious and light, with a working fireplace in one corner, oak beams, bakelite switches, five wall lights and two sash windows, with seating underneath and lovely views of the nearby river.

Also on this floor, there are two interlinked bedrooms, which could be used as a bedroom and an adjoining dressing room/study if preferred.

The larger of the two rooms has an oak ceiling beam and a sash window to the rear. The adjoining room is currently being used as a study and comprises a cast iron fireplace, an oak ceiling beam and a window to side the aspect.

A tastefully appointed shower room completes the first-floor accommodation and comprises Travertine style tiling, oak floorboards, large walk-in shower cubicle, a pedestal wash basin, a low-level WC and down lighters.

Second floor
There are a further two large double bedrooms found on this floor, both served by a spacious family bathroom.

The master bedroom comprises a feature fireplace, an oak ceiling beam and two sash windows providing lovely views of the river. The other bedroom is an extensive , light and airy room with two windows affording great views across the town.

There is also a family bathroom, which is generous in size and features a free-standing roll-top bath, a Heritage style vanity unit, exposed beams, Karndean flooring and a low-level WC.

From the second-floor, wooden steps lead to a large loft room, which is currently being used as a gym and could serve as another bedroom, subject to building regulations. With fantastic far-reaching views taking in Bewdley bridge and the town. This room also features oak floorboards, wood cladding and a large Velux style window.

Outside
Directly to the front of the property is a private parking space, a huge benefit considering the proximity to town.

At the rear is a secluded walled courtyard garden, which is laid to period engineered bricks and comprises a raised bed with climbing clematis, a side gate to the passageway and outside lighting. The courtyard benefits from afternoon and evening sunshine.

Within the courtyard, there is a sizeable brick outbuilding, which is currently being used for storage and offers fantastic potential for conversion to a games room, studio or home office. This outbuilding features large, vaulted ceilings with a wealth of period beams, quarry tiled flooring, power, lighting and a water supply.

Agent notes
The property is subject to a Grade 2 listed status.

The sellers inform us that during their eleven year tenure the inside of the property has not flooded despite several recent years of extremely high water levels, no doubt due to the living accommodation being several feet higher than street level. With a permanent flood barrier being constructed in 2023 / 2024 this is planned to alleviate future flooding in Kidderminster Road.

From speaking with the sellers we understand that furniture in the property is also for sale, subject to separate negotiation.

Services
The property has mains gas, mains electricity, mains water, mains drainage and broadband.
