Location & Description

The property enjoys a convenient position at the junction of Grundy's Lane and Wells Road, just over two miles south of the cultural and historic spa town of Great Malvern where there is a comprehensive range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. More local amenities can be found at a nearby convenience store (McColls) and a service station, both of which are within walking distance. Junction 1 of the M50 motorway near Upton upon Severn is just seven miles distant and there is a mainline railway station in Great Malvern itself. Educational facilities are excellent. Malvern has a superb choice of independent schools (including Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School) as well as several highly regarded primary and secondary schools in the state sector. Situated as it is on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills, the house is close to the network of paths and bridleways that criss cross the hills themselves, including the British Camp, which is less than a mile away. The Worcestershire Golf Club and The Three Counties Showground are a similar distance. Approximately five miles away is the River Severn at Upton, renowned for its marina, summer festivals and riverside walks.

Claire Cottage is a traditional two storey semi-detached period house believed to date back to the late Victorian era. It requires renovation and refurbishment, although it does have double glazed windows and gas fired central heating. The current accommodation includes a canopy porch, hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, three bedrooms and a shower room. There is also a small glazed side porch off which is a store room that doubles as a utility area. The house has a small mature garden, which, subject to adaptation, could accommodate off road parking for a single vehicle.

AUCTION DETAILS BIDDING For bidding please visit: - PLEASE NOTE THE AUCTION PACK FOR THIS PROPERTY HAS BEEN AMENDED AUCTION GUIDE PRICE An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. 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. EPC EPCs can be viewed in full on our website on the sales details page or in the legal pack.
