Location & Description
The property enjoys a significant location in large grounds in the highly regarded South Worcestershire village of Eckington. The village itself is bordered by the River Avon. One of its most familiar landmarks is the picturesque nearby bridge that passes over the river. Eckington itself is a thriving community with a village shop, a church dating back to the Norman period, a primary school, a village hall, two hairdressers, a Scout hut with surrounding recreational grounds and two pubs The Bell and The Anchor both of which offer food and guest accommodation. Situated on the edge of the Cotswolds, Eckington is well placed for access to a number of other significant towns including Pershore (approximately four miles), Bredon (three miles), Tewkesbury (seven miles) and Upton upon Severn (seven miles). The cities of Worcester, Cheltenham and Gloucester are also close at hand. Transport communications are excellent. Junction 9 of the M5 at Tewkesbury is only about seven miles away. Here also is a mainline railway station at Ashchurch.
The Beeches is a traditional two storey detached house originally constructed in the 1950's. It stands in larger grounds in a mature if somewhat neglected garden close to the village centre. The property itself has seen little or no investment for two generations and as a result requires full renovation and refurbishment. It offers great scope for extension and improvement and there is even potential for further development within the curtilage (subject to planning consent being granted). However, the house is being offered as it stands and it will be left for potential buyers to adopt their own plans for the house. The current accommodation includes a hall, lounge, dining room, a long kitchen/breakfast room, separate WC, three bedrooms and a bathroom. There are double glazed windows and a central heating system, both of which will require replacement. Outside a long driveway provides off road parking for several vehicles and leads to a double length tandem garage. At the rear of the house there is a small brick built ancillary building used for storage and two garden sheds of timber construction. The large garden mainly consisting of trees, shrubs and hedging has a maximum depth of almost 230ft (70m) and a maximum frontage of approximately 65ft (20m). GROUND FLOOR

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.
