Brookvale is a long established timber chalet quietly situated towards the end of the last field at Hill Farm, a delightfully situated rural community approximately 2 miles from the centre of Bewdley nestling amidst the glorious Severn Valley countryside and approached over a long 'no through road' country lane running between the River Severn and the Severn Valley steam railway line, before the lane ends near Trimpley Reservoir.

A Certificate Of Lawful Use was granted by Wyre Forest District Council in April 2008, (Ref: 08/0289/CERTE) allowing the property to be occupied for residential use for 12 months of the year.

The property would benefit from some general cosmetic updating, though it was largely rebuilt by the present owner circa 2000 and is of solid timber construction with insulated walls, upvc double glazing and electric radiator heating. The roof space has been converted to provide useful additional living space to the first floor (restricted headroom) which is ideal for hobbies, home working and a variety of other uses.

The property backs directly onto an area of woodland, enjoying a pleasant leafy aspect which can be enjoyed from the timber decked area accessible via sliding patio doors opening from the lounge. From here steps lead down to the gardens, which would benefit from some general tidying but offer great potential.

The ground floor accommodation includes a spacious central living/ dining space with log burner, plus open plan kitchen area, double bedroom and shower room, as well as a central open tread staircase to the full length 30' open plan first floor area, with skylight and two gable end windows.

To the rear of the living room, sliding patio doors open to a timber decked terrace, looking onto the adjacent woodland and with steps leading down to the garden area where is situated access an outside WC/ utility room plus substantial workshop/ shed, which features electric power & lighting as well as a lean-to greenhouse.

Mains electricity and water are connected, with drainage to a septic tank. Council tax is payable to Wyre Forest District Council, rated as band A.

The property is currently occupied by agreement with the site owner, Friesian Developments Ltd, subject to an annual licence agreement and payment of site fees currently set at £5000pa. It is understood that a Hill Farm Residents Association action group (HFRA), involving around 90% of the residents at Hill Farm is currently pursuing a legal challenge aimed at contesting the level of site fees and establishing a more permanent form of residency at Hill Farm. The owner of Brookvale is not a member of HFRA or involved in the legal action group and has kept all site fees paid fully up to date.

The site owner has advised that until the legal challenge has been settled he is unable to issue any new licence agreements. It is also understood that the site owner has subsequently served a notice to all property owners at Hill Farm requiring possession of each pitch by 31st March 2023.

The occupation of any chalet and any future licencing arrangements currently remains at the sole discretion of the site owner, and it is recommended that purchasers make sufficient enquiries directly with the site owner to satisfy themselves as to security of tenure prior to purchase. It is further understood that upon the future sale of any property at Hill Farm, a commission of 10% of the sale price will be payable by the seller to the site owner.

Although it is not necessary to appoint a conveyancing solicitor when purchasing a property of this type, Allan Morris Estate Agents always recommend that prospective purchasers should take independent legal advice for peace of mind.
