Location & Description

10 The Grove is positioned in a convenient and sought after location on the outskirts of the city of Worcester. The house is on a bus route that provides excellent routes to the local communities. There are shops, takeaways and public houses available in the near vicinity. More extensive amenities are available in the city centre. Transport communications are excellent with Junction 6 of the M5 motorway being positioned just outside Worcester bringing The Midlands, South West and South Wales into an easy commute. There is a mainline railway station in the city and gives direct links to Birmingham, London, Malvern, Hereford and South Wales. Educational facilities are well catered for in both the public and private sectors at primary and secondary levels.

10 The Grove is a traditional 1930s semi-detached property in a popular, quiet cul de sac location in Claines. The property is set back from the road with wrought iron gates leading to a single width driveway providing parking for vehicles and leading to the attached garage flanked by a lawned foregarden with beautifully planted beds. The living accommodation has been well looked after over the years but is now in need of cosmetic refurbishment. There is also evidence of some structural movement affecting the property and a report on this is available upon request. It should be noted that the vendors are not willing to undertake any work, hence the reason the property is being sold by auction.

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.
