A Really Interesting Detached Five Bedroomed, Three Bathroomed, Victorian Family House With The Benefit Of Two Three Bedroomed Self-Contained Apartments In A Separate Building Set In Mature Gardens And Grounds With Extensive Private Parking. Energy Rating "D"

Location

Edgefield enjoys a strategically significant location on the edge of the small community of Whittington approximately two miles south east the city of Worcester and only a minutes drive from Junction 7 of the M5 motorway. It is therefore well placed for access to a comprehensive range of amenities both in the city itself and more locally. There is a Waitrose store less than half a mile away. Transport communications are excellent with immediate access on to the M5 linking it to all the major centres including Birmingham and The Midlands, South Wales and the South West and London and the South East. Rail services are second to none with direct links from Worcester (via either Foregate Street or the newly constructed Parkway Terminal which is only a short distance from Edgefield) to The Midlands, Bristol and Cardiff and London Paddington. Educational facilities are well catered for. The property is within immediate striking distance of some of the best primary and secondary schools in the region in both the state and private sectors. Open countryside is only a short walk away and the house is only a few minutes drive from the River Severn, The Malvern Hills and The Cotswolds.

Description

Edgefield is an extremely flexible and versatile detached Victorian dwelling with generous well presented family accommodation. However, this unique home offers far more than this as it is also capable of providing a healthy income. Integrated into the main house is a small two storey annexe which has provided Bed & Breakfast accommodation in the past and separately located within the grounds is a detached two storey dwelling that has been converted into two self-contained apartments.

The main house includes a reception hall, dining room, sitting room, a large kitchen/breakfast room, a cellar, three bedrooms and a bathroom. The adjacent Bed & Breakfast quarters include a conservatory, dining room, kitchen/utility room, two guests bedrooms (one with an en-suite shower) and a separate shower room. Attached to the building is a double garage, a workshop and two small storerooms. It would be a simple task to integrate the two elements of the house into one, making it an impressive five bedroomed home.

The adjacent detached two storey annexe was converted into two self-contained flats some years ago. It could easily be altered to create a single, larger detached dwelling. The ground floor apartment includes a large open plan living room and kitchen, two principal bedrooms (one with an en-suite shower room), a bathroom and a study that can double as a small third bedroom when needed. The first floor apartment includes a reception hall/utility area, an open plan living area with kitchen, a lounge, three bedrooms and a shower room.

Edgefield stands in a mature level landscaped garden. This is principally laid to lawns with mature trees and shrubs and a long driveway that leads to a large parking area capable of accommodating numerous vehicles. This also links to a second gated access driveway off School Lane.
