Areley Common, Stourport-on-severn Dy13 0nb


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2

Hidden away along Areley Common in the middle of Areley Kings village with pedestrian only approach. A refreshingly different two bedroom non-listed detached cottage for refurbishment or perhaps even re-build STPP. Probably un-suitable for mortgage in its current condition and therefore most suited to cash buyers. An interesting and rare opportunity. Vacant possession. Energy Rating: F.

Over the past few years the Georgian riverside town of Stourport-on-Severn itself has also seen substantial investment in its Supermarkets and indeed its evening economy with good food and pubs, a number of which, hosting regular live music and drawing visitors from far and wide. Areley Kings also offers good access to the Cathedral City of Worcester being about 12 miles distant and offering a wealth of shopping and employment opportunities. Worcester also serves as the pickup point for M5 Midlands motorway links.
