Location & Description

The property enjoys a convenient position in the village of Holly Green, less than a mile from the busy and historic riverside town of Upton upon Severn where there is a comprehensive range of amenities including shops, a sub Post Office with banking facilities, library, church, medical centre and school. The town is well known for its thriving tourist industry and summer festivals and for its famous riverside marina. The larger towns of Malvern (eight miles), Worcester (ten miles) and Tewkesbury (six miles) are all within close proximity as is Junction 1 of the M50 motorway which is approximately three miles away. There are mainline railway stations in both Worcester and Malvern.

Holly Bank is a detached half-timbered period house which is believed to date back to the 1700's. It requires full renovation and refurbishment but its generous accommodation offers enormous scope for the buyer with energy and vision to transform it into a very fine family home. On the ground floor a hall leads to a cloakroom with WC, kitchen, utility room, conservatory, dining room and a large drawing room. At first floor level there are four bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite bathroom. There is also a separate family bathroom and WC. Central heating is provided by way of an oil fired system and there is also partial double glazing. Outside Holly Bank stands in large grounds of just over half an acre. In the past they were beautifully landscaped providing a lovely setting for the property. However, in more recent years they have been neglected and clearly now need attention. Within the curtilage there is a large garage block, a greenhouse and a former swimming pool that has long since fallen into disuse. Holly Bank is clearly suited to any buyers seeking a residential development opportunity as planning consent has been granted for two new detached dwellings in part of the grounds. The property is being offered as it stands with the benefit of these two building plots.

A long partly gravelled driveway providing parking for several vehicles leads to the front of the house and to a block of three brick built GARAGES. Behind the house there is a large GREENHOUSE and a former SWIMMING POOL (not in functioning order). One can see from a casual glance that in the past Holly Bank was set in beautifully landscaped gardens. Sadly, they have over recent years been neglected and will require considerable work to restore them back to their former glory. However, they still contain substantial borders with shrubs and some impressive mature trees. Extending to almost half an acre the garden has potential to provide a lovely setting for the house. However, planning consent has also been granted for the construction of two new detached single storey dwellings. These are briefly described as follows:

The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to persue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. The guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve (see below). Both the guide price and reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. RESERVE PRICE This is seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. A reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
