This is a rare opportunity within a desirable neighbourhood in Bewdley to acquire a detached house of contemporary 1960s architecture, a style now very much in vogue, with great potential for upgrading and extension (subject to planning). The property sits in a generous garden plot of approx 0.3 acre.

Furthermore planning permission was obtained in 2006 (Ref. No: 06/0077/FULL) and renewed in 2009 (09/0172/FULL) for the erection of a new detached three bedroom dwelling of a similar architectural style.

The consent involved the demolition of a single storey extension to the existing house, namely the sitting room. Please note this planning consent has now elapsed.

Top Orchard presently provides light and versatile living accommodation featuring a split level layout with the ground floor accommodation incorporating a large glass entrance porch, inner hallway, guest cloakroom/ shower room, study/ fourth bedroom, spacious kitchen/ diner with rear lobby and porch plus spacious lounge approached via a short flight of stairs from the kitchen.

Double doors open from the lounge into a separate sitting room (which is the room to be demolished in order to make way for the new dwelling in accordance with the permitted 2006/2209 planning consent).

A staircase leads up from the lounge to a galleried first floor landing which looks down over the lounge and has doors radiating off to three well proportioned bedrooms and a bathroom.

Outside, adjoining the house is a two bay double garage, whilst the rear gardens enjoy a sunny south westerly aspect.

The previously permitted new dwelling followed the architectural styling of Top Orchard, with the layout including a spacious open plan kitchen/ dining room plus lounge, guest cloakroom and integral garage, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms to the first floor.

All mains services are connected to Top Orchard with council tax payable to Wyre Forest District Council, rated as Band F.
