Merryhurst enjoys simply spectacular views over from the Wyre Forest countryside from this 'front row' elevated position at Hill Farm, a delightfully situated rural community located just over 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 SVR steam railway line before ending near Trimpley Reservoir.

The accommodation has been improved by the present owners and offers well proportioned living space with an excellent lounge (18'0 x 17'6 max) featuring full width bay window providing the most impressive views and double doors opening out to the full width timber decked split-level patio.

This splendid living room also features a 'pebble' style LPG gas fire set on black tiled hearth with contemporary exposed timber over.

Just off the living room is a double bedroom with alcoved space for wardrobes. It would also be possible to easily create a second bedroom by partitioning part of the living room if required.

The kitchen is fitted with a modern gloss white range of wall and base cabinets, contrasting black work surfaces, wood effect flooring and integral electric oven, four ring gas hob and steel hood. There is a split-level step down to a further l-shaped area of the kitchen with additional cabinets and space for fridge/ freezer.

This leads on to the shower room, with floor tiling and attractive wall tiling plus suite comprising full width vanity unit having tiled surface and inset hand basin with cabinets below. The room also features a low level w and walk-in cubicle with rainfall mixer shower and hand attachment plus chrome heated towel rail.

Outside the property stands in a well screened plot with privacy fence and gateway to the front. The plot has sufficient width to provide a hard landscaped side garden with Cotswold gravel and slate chippings plus raised area siting the LPG tank.

There is also a newly completed substantial timber shed/ workshop with electric power supply connected.

To the rear of the property the extensive decked area includes a summer house with power & lighting, providing a most pleasant all weather space from which to enjoy the gardens. A gateway leads down to a lower hard landscaped garden area with slate chippings interspersed with shrubs.

Mains water, drainage and electricity are all connected with LPG fired central heating served by a boiler last serviced in November 2021. All windows are upvc double glazed. The property has planning consent from Wyre Forest District Council for permanent residential occupation by way of a certificate of lawful use dated 2010. 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 Merryhurst 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.
