Location & Description
The property is situated on the corner of Longridge Road and Britten Drive less than half a mile from the busy and well served neighbourhood of Barnards Green where there is a range of amenities including a Co-op supermarket, shops and takeaways. The cultural and historic town of Great Malvern is only about a mile distant. Here there is a more comprehensive choice of facilities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Transport communications are excellent. Great Malvern railway station is less than a mile away. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway south of Worcester and Junction 1 of the M50 near Upton upon Severn are both less than ten miles. Educational facilities are also excellent. Close at hand are a choice of highly regarded schools at primary and secondary levels in both the state and private systems including The Chase High School, Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls School. The property itself is adjacent to Malvern Common and enjoys fine views to the south and to the west of the Malvern Hills in the distance. It is the perfect spot for children or for walking the dog.
Greensleeves is a traditional single storey detached bungalow believed to have been constructed around the late 1940's/early 1950's. It stands in a good size level garden which offers plenty of space to extend the existing accommodation. However, over recent years the property has been sadly neglected and therefore requires some investment. It is a prime candidate for renovation, refurbishment and for transformation into a fine contemporary home. Subject to planning consent it maybe even suitable for demolition and replacement with a new dwelling. Within the curtilage there is also a detached single garage. Again this offers potential for extension or replacement with something more significant (subject to planning consent). 36 Longridge Road has been in the same ownership for the last seventy two years so this presents a very rare opportunity for buyers to acquire a property with so much potential in such a highly regarded location. The current accommodation includes a porch, hall, a large lounge/dining room, kitchen, three bedrooms and bathroom. There is also a more recently installed electric central heating system with a combined primary storage unit (CPSU) -that heats the hot water and radiators together.

The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue 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.
