This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a recently refurbished property right in the heart of Bewdley town, tucked away just a few yards along Park Alley off the High Street. This unique setting and the detached nature of the property set it apart, along with a parking space and lovely cottage garden.

Comprehensive refurbishments by the current owners have enhanced the property’s condition and sympathetically upgraded the interior to a contemporary standard while maintaining its period charm. The extensive list of improvements includes a stylish new kitchen and bathroom, the addition of two wood-burning stoves in the living rooms, downlighters in many rooms, a new boiler and consumer unit, new flooring in the main living room and cellar improvements like enhanced lighting, ventilation and an access door.

Now turnkey ready, the property beautifully blends its wonderful period features with contemporary styling and décor. Future development potential is also on offer, with planning permission secured in 2020 for a two-storey extension.

The Approach
Approached on foot from High Street, the property is located a few yards along Park Alley on the right-hand side. Its parking space is conveniently placed in a small car park on the corner of Lax Lane, just moments away by foot. The space is perfectly suited for one large vehicle and is easily accessible in a prime position of this private car park, held on a long 99-year lease that commenced in 1980. Upon entering the front door, guests are welcomed by a quarry-tiled hallway that provides access to the staircase and flows nicely into the living areas.

The Living Room
Centred around a recently installed ‘Heta 45’ wood-burning stove, this attractive living room features herringbone flooring. Enhanced with downlighters, the room also includes a sash window to the front aspect, a cellar hatch and a square archway leading to the adjoining garden room.

The Garden Room
Acting as a versatile addition to the ground floor, this room boasts lovely rustic features including exposed brickwork and retro-style wall lights. It is filled with natural light from multiple windows and a glass roof, includes a radiator and herringbone flooring, and offers access to the garden.

The Dining Room
Adjacent to the kitchen, the separate dining room offers potential for a completely open-plan layout, if desired. A feature fireplace housing an extra- wide wood-burning stove, with an accompanying woodstore, sets the ambiance. Other notable features include quarry tiled flooring, built-in storage and a sash window to the front aspect. There is also a doorway that leads to a rear lobby with utility room and a downstairs WC with under stairs storage.

The Kitchen
The kitchen, which was redesigned and refitted by the current owners to optimise the space, extends from the front to the back of the property in a partly open-plan layout from the dining room. The result is a stylish, contemporary finish. Features include matching wall and base units with under-cupboard lighting, space for a breakfast bar, a coffee bar recess, downlighters, exposed beams and dual aspect windows. Fitted appliances include a Range-style oven, large American fridge freezer and dishwasher.

The Master Bedroom
Character fills the upper floors, providing four spacious bedrooms and a beautifully refitted family bathroom; a split-level bedroom adding to the home’s adaptability. Spacious with fitted wardrobes, the main bedroom offers great countryside views.

Bedroom Two
A cast-iron fireplace is the focal point of the second spacious bedroom, which also features spacious fitted wardrobes and magnificent views across the grounds of the Old Rectory.

Bedrooms Three and Four
The remaining bedrooms are accessed via two separate staircases from the first floor. Both are spacious and full of character details, with the third bedroom boasting dual aspect windows, fitted wardrobes and a feature fireplace with a stone hearth. Bedroom four is uniquely arranged over two levels, ideal as a studio bedroom, featuring exposed beams, brickwork, wood flooring and a Velux window providing lovely leafy views.

The Family Bathroom
Recently refitted, this light and airy bathroom includes a panelled bath and a separate walk-in shower both with marble-style panelling, a vanity unit, a chrome towel radiator, downlighters, and a heated mirror-fronted bathroom cabinet equipped with electric shaver and toothbrush sockets.

The Garden
A pleasant cottage garden awaits at the rear, providing this property with quality outside space, which is a rare commodity in a location so close to the centre. The garden benefits from a nice degree of privacy, featuring a raised block-paved seating area, a lawn with walled boundaries and mature borders. A useful side gate provides convenient access from Park Alley.

Administration Fee - refundable on exchange

An administration fee, refundable on exchange, is payable prior to the issue of the Memorandum of Sale and after which the property may be marked as Sold Subject to Contract. The fee will be reimbursed upon the successful Exchange of Contracts.

The fee will be retained by Andrew Grant in the event that you the buyer withdraws from the purchase or does not Exchange within 6 months of the fee being received other than for one or more of the following reasons:

1. Any significant material issues highlighted in a survey that were not evident or drawn to the attention of you the buyer prior to the Memorandum of Sale being issued.
2. Serious and material defect in the seller’s legal title.
3. Local search revealing a matter that has a material adverse effect on the market value of the property that was previously undeclared and not in the public domain.
4. The vendor withdrawing the property from sale.

The administration fee levels are as follows:
an agreed offer under £500,000 will be £750 inclusive of vat
an agreed offer between £500,000 and £1,000,000 will be £2,000 inclusive of vat
all agreed offers over £1,000,000 will be £3,000 inclusive of vat

The administration fee is payable upon acceptance by the vendor of an offer from a buyer and a positive completion of an assessment of the buyer’s financial status and ability to proceed.
Should a buyer’s financial position regarding the funding of the property prove to be fundamentally different from that declared by the buyer when the Memorandum of Sale was completed, then the Vendor has the right to withdraw from the sale and the administration fee retained. For example, where the buyer declares themselves as a cash buyer but are in fact relying on an unsecured sale of their property.

Once the administration fee has been paid, any renegotiation of the price stated in the memorandum of sale for any reason other than those covered in points 1 to 3 above will lead to the reservation fee being retained. A further fee will be levied on any subsequent reduced offer that is accepted by the vendor. This further fee will be subject to the same conditions that prevail for all administration fees outlined above.
