The property stands in large private side and rear gardens, with a gate at the rear providing access to the National Trust woodland surrounding the property (subject to permission from Worcestershire Woodland Trust). The gardens offer a wealth of mature plants and shrubs and need to be viewed to be fully appreciated, with raised seating areas having far reaching views to the front.


The vendor advises us that the property is LEASEHOLD with the freehold being owned by the National Trust. The current owners have just extended the term of the lease to 99 years from April 2019. There is a small annual ground rent payable of £3.64. Allan Morris & Peace Limited would stress that they have not checked the legal documentation to verify the status of the property and would advise the buyer to obtain verification from their solicitor.
