Description

An Historic Detached Late 18th Century Village House Offering Substantial Eight Bedroomed Accommodation (Over 3700 Sq.Ft) In Need Of Renovation And Refurbishment And Set In Mature Grounds. Energy Rating "F"

Location & Description

The village of Longdon is situated on the Gloucestershire border with Worcestershire approximately four miles south of Upton upon Severn and just six miles east of Tewkesbury. Tewkesbury provides a comprehensive range of amenities, whilst Cheltenham, Malvern and Worcester which are all within easy striking distance provide more extensive shopping and cultural facilities as well as a choice of excellent independent and state schools including the nearby Bredon School. Sport is well catered for with National Hunt Racing at Cheltenham, Worcester and Stratford upon Avon. Transport communications are excellent. Junction 1 of the M50 and Junctions 8 and 9 of the M5 are all within immediate driving distance and provide direct links to the Midlands, South West, South Wales and London. There are mainline railway stations in Worcester, Cheltenham, Gloucester and nearby Malvern.

The Vicarage stands in mature grounds in the centre of the village, almost opposite St Mary's Church. Originally believed to date back to the late 1700's this substantial home offers extremely generous accommodation (extending to approximately 3724 sq.ft) over four floors including cellarage. Sadly only limited investment and maintenance has been made and carried out to the property in recent years with the result that it now requires significant renovation and refurbishment. It does however present a blank canvass for imaginative buyers to create a striking contemporary home for the future. On the ground floor a large reception hall leads to a cloakroom with WC, three reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room, a small utility room and a walk-in pantry. At first floor level there are four bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC. On the second floor there are a series of linked rooms including four more bedrooms. Outside a circular tarmac "in and out" driveway provides access and parking for the house. This is surrounded by a number of impressive trees and leads via a gated approach to the rear of the house where there is a covered courtyard, off which are three small stores/outbuildings. The main gardens lie to the front of the property and are laid to lawn and rough grass with mature trees and shrubs and a view over an adjacent field. Ground Floor
