Location & Description

The Oaks enjoys a convenient position less than a mile from the bustling riverside town of Upton upon Severn where there is a fine range of amenities including shops for everyday needs, a sub-Post Office, medical centre, library, three churches and the famous marina. Educational needs are particularly well catered for at secondary level within Hanley Castle itself and at primary level in the neighbouring village of Hanley Swan. Upton upon Severn has a deserved reputation for its clubs and societies, and notably for its jazz, folk and music festivals that take place throughout the summer. It is an active town. Situated on the outskirts of the popular village of Hanley Castle, the property has immediate access to countryside walks and in particular the Malvern Hills. Within Hanley Swan there is a local store and the house has good access to the more major centres of Worcester (nine miles) and great Malvern (six miles). Junction 1 of the M50 motorway, south of Upton is only about three miles away. There is a particularly highly regarded local village pub within walking distance.

The Oaks is a beautifully presented period semi-detached house situated within this popular and much sought after location. The property has undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment by the current owners creating a modern living environment, but yet retaining much of the property's period character and charm. The cottage is approached via a five bar vehicle gate opening to the enclosed gravelled parking area with parking for several cars. A block paved pedestrian path leads through the lawned foregarden enclosed by a fenced perimeter and interspersed with mature specimen trees.
