In over twenty five years of estate agency, you would have thought I’d become immune to the emotions behind selling a property. This is all too often not the case though and I have a real soft spot for both the seller and her property here. To be trusted to sell her much-loved home after nearly thirty years there (with all the emotions that brings) is a real honour. Any new owner will be very lucky indeed – the house has a wonderful tranquil charm and its position (quiet yet temptingly close to Marks and Spencer’s coffee shop) is a real appeal. Come and see why I love it!

Full description

A GREAT BIG HUG OF A HOUSE! We have all fallen for this handsome semi detached house which is set in a popular, leafy area close to the town centre (and Marks and Spencer's coffee shop!) The home is full of charm and character with Worcester gas central heating system and UPVC double glazed windows. The house has a useful entrance porch which leads to a welcoming hallway with two good sized under stair/cloaks cupboards. The appealing L-shaped lounge/dining room is arranged in a sociable open plan with beautiful mellow stone chimney breast and archway. The kitchen/breakfast room extension has been beautifully remodelled and refitted in recent years to create a gorgeously light and spacious family gathering area. There are chic cream units including pull-out larder cupboards, complemented by walnut block effect work surfaces; effective and efficient LED feature lighting and stainless steel hob, oven and extractor. Two large rear-facing windows create a wonderful link with the rear garden. The room leads through a side door into a really very useful covered area - perfect for muddy boots and drying wet weather gear! An attractive turning staircase with side window leads up to the first floor. The master bedroom is set at the rear of the home with a fitted wardrobe and lovely garden view. Bedroom two is also a beautifully light double bedroom and bedroom three is a very pretty (and longer than average for this house style) single. A smartly presented, fully tiled bathroom services the rooms with fresh white suite and pretty green mosaic tiled decals. To the front of the home, a long driveway provides parking for several vehicles as well as a green front garden to soften the road frontage. Wide side access leads to a good sized, level mainly lawned garden. The current owner has lovingly landscaped and planted the area during nearly thirty years of ownership. There are numerous productive fruit trees, colourful shrubs, a small wildlife pond and large block built building with power and light. With its convenient positioning so close to the town centre, yet with a really tucked-away feel, this super home is one not to miss! CHAIN FREE!
