The Property - Number 132 Wyre Hill is a very spacious 3 bedroom white washed bungalow which has received a series of many extensions and alterations but we believe it to have mid C-18th origins. It is a conversion as would have started life as a cow shed/stables or some type of agricultural building and most probably served either Wyre Court – across the road – or maybe more likely, the long since demolished farmstead that once stood on the nearby housing estate now known as Hales Park.

The property is NOT Statutory Listed by Historic England but is included on the Wyre Forest District Council’s Local Heritage list.

BACKGROUND -The property is now to be sold with immediate vacant possession under instructions from Executors in order to close an estate! It was purchased by the late owner in 1986 and therefore now comes to the market for the first time in 34 years. We understand that Probate has been granted and so there is no reason that we know of which would delay the transfer to a new owner!

LOCATION – Historic Bewdley is an acutely sought after place to live and with special reason it takes its name from the French words “Beau Lieu” meaning “Beautiful Place” and has been described as the “most perfect small Georgian town in Worcestershire”. This vibrant town is packed with plentiful amenities and is built on the banks of the River Severn, offering a rich and scenic landscape which draws visitors from far and wide the whole year round. Wyre Hill has a very handy location in the upper reaches of Bewdley, within comfortable walking of town centre which is about three quarters of a mile distant. Closer still then there are two traditional pubs - The Hope Pole Inn and The Black Boy - plus also a convenience shop along nearby The Lakes Road. A bus stop is also right on the doorstep and this part of Bewdley also offers particularly simple motoring accessibility to the by-pass and therefore surrounding towns. There is also very quick access to the outstandingly beautiful Wyre Forest National Nature Reserve which spreads out over some 6000 acres!

BOUNDARIES - The purchaser shall be deemed to have full knowledge of all boundaries and neither the vendor nor the vendor's agents will be responsible for defining the boundaries or ownership thereof. The included plan is for identification purposes only. The property has a registered title under HW200815 and there are rights for next door – number 134. Please see the HM Land Registry title plan and our explanatory further notes within these particulars. Whilst intended to be helpful you should not rely solely on our comments nor do we give any guarantee or warranty whatsoever. Therefore, you must consult your own Solicitor for further clarification.

WAYLEAVES, EASEMENTS & RIGHTS OF WAY – The property is sold subject to, and with the benefit of, all easements and quasieasements and rights of way, declared and undeclared and whether mentioned in these particulars or not. There are rights for others including a vehicular right. Albeit the Executors advise us that the rights have not been exercised for many years. Again, you should seek personal clarification.

PLANNING - The property is sold subject to any development plan, tree preservation order, town planning schedule, resolution or notice which may be or become to be in force, and subject to any road widening or improvement schemes, land charges and statutory provisions or bylaws without any obligation on the vendors to specify them.

The property stands back from the kerbside behind a block paved gated driveway.


1. We understand that a vehicular right of way is given over the driveway area for the benefit of the attached neighbouring property - namely number 134 Wyre Hill.

2. Albeit there is no clear demarcation, the concreted area directly adjacent to the garage (also with a similar footprint to the subject property's garage) is also within the ownership of number 134 Wyre Hill.

3. Number 134 Wyre Hill also owns the pedestrian gate and path on the extreme right hand side of the driveway. This path then "dog legs" around the back of the subject property's sheds to serve as a pedestrian access-way to the gardens of number 134. * Please see the included Title plan for full identification.


15' 9'' x 8' 3'' (4.79m x 2.52m)

No doubt originally built as a garage but now with the front elevation 'bricked' to provide pedestrian access only. The garage is old and clearly in need of improvement/replacement or demolition.
