With Huge Development Potential And In Need Of Substantial Refurbishment, A Large Detached Bungalow Situated In A Fabulous Location, With Extraordinary Views To The Malvern Hills, In Grounds Approaching 1.4 Acres. No Chain, Energy Rating "E"

Location & Description

The property 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, an excellent new supermarket and petrol station, 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), both of which have rail connections to London and Birmingham. 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 easy walking distance.

Badgers is a wonderfully located detached bungalow, situated in a quiet location in the small and popular hamlet of Hanley Castle. The property is set in generous grounds which approach 1.4 acres and from the rear aspect has spectacular, uninterrupted views over overlooks open farmland and woodland to the range of the Malvern Hills beyond. No other properties are visible between the house and the hills from the rear aspect. The property is initially approached over a shared road. A wooden vehicular gate opens to the private driveway leading to a roundabout style parking area with central planted bed and allowing for ample parking for vehicles and access to a detached double garage with up and over doors to front. The property itself is of timber construction under a wood shingle pitched roof and offers well proportioned rooms extending to 2168 sq. ft. Taking into consideration both the size of the grounds and that the property is in need of substantial refurbishment, it offers huge potential for further development to convert it into a fine home for any discerning buyer or subject to the relevant permissions or subject to the relevant permissions being sought even to become a building plot for the creation of a much larger exceptional family residence. From the entrance porch a wooden front door allows access to the reception hall which is a welcoming space open to an inner hall and gives access to all principal rooms. The principal L shaped living room is positioned to the south and west aspects of the house and enjoys views over the formal garden and taking in the fabulous views. The room is the perfect place from which to watch the sun setting behind hills. The kitchen is fitted with a range of drawer and cupboard base units with work surface and is open to the utility room that has a useful walk-in larder and a pedestrian door to the garden. Completing the living space is a conservatory, flanked by double glazed windows to two sides and a double glazed roof flooding the room with natural light and affording fine views over the garden. From here a door opens to a dual aspect master bedroom of generous proportions and having fitted wardrobes. The property then offers three further double bedrooms (all with fitted wardrobes) with flexibility in their use, all serviced by a bathroom and separate shower room with WC. Outside the property sits handsomely within its grounds which approach 1.4 acres. From the initial driveway lawns flank to either side of the property and continue to the rear where there are splendid and far reaching views across the open countryside to the Malvern Hills beyond. Due to the size of the grounds there is potential for the property, subject to the relevant permissions being sought, to be developed further, but for now they offer a delightful setting where the pleasures of this fantastic location can be enjoyed. The grounds are enclosed by a fence and hedged perimeter with mature specimen trees interspersed throughout the garden. There are a variety of planted beds and an orchard with mature apple, plum and cherry trees. The garden is currently lightly maintained and some areas have been given over to rewilding, but the potential for keen gardeners to transform it is exceptional. In the garden there is wooded shed and a greenhouse as well as a detached double garage, of wooden construction that is in need of a new roof.
