Longmynd Way, Stourport-on-severn Dy13 0az


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4

An extremely desirable and very well maintained 4-bedroom detached house on the fringe of the forever sought after village of Areley Kings, with a very generous frontage, countryside views and south east facing rear gardens. Great potential to extend subject to requisite consents. A rare property which will undoubtedly sell very quickly indeed. Early inspection is therefore imperative. Energy Rating: C. NO UPWARD CHAIN.


Number 46 Longmynd Way is an early 1970's 4 bedroom detached house enjoying a very private cul-de-sac position with properties only on just one side of the road. The cul-de-sac runs parallel to the renowned Dunley Road, being separated from it by a mature line of hedgerow. Therefore, to many intents and purposes the location is pretty much akin to being on Dunley Road!

There are a number of factors that make this house special compared to others you might see in the same price bracket. Firstly, it is its private position which also permits pleasant open aspects with glimpses of Stagborough Hill and Ribbesford - see photos. Secondly, is the very generous frontage lending great scope for adaption, both to increase the parking to suit requirements, and also for extension to the house itself subject to requisite consents. Giving a perfect 'window' to this potential then Wyre Forest District Council did actually grant full consent for a two storey front extension under application number 09/0398/FULL on 9 July 2009. Albeit this permission was not started and would have now time lapsed it does nevertheless provide a great guide. For those interested in this aspect then copies of the former plans and documents are available upon request and can be emailed.

SOLAR PANELS - In the energy conscious times in which we now live, another point of note is that the property is fitted with solar panels which, depending on your consumption, should have the effect of reducing electricity costs. See 'agents note' for further details.

LOCATION - Areley Kings is an acutely sought after place in which to live. It lies over the river and just one mile south west of Stourport town centre itself yet in spite of this close proximity Areley Kings still remains very much a village style community. The varied amenities include two pubs, a “Londis” convenience store and post office, pharmacy, modern community village hall and a character Grade II Listed church namely St Bartholomew’s which has an ancient history spanning 800 years. 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.

Affordable detached family homes in this part of Stourport are highly coveted to say the least and forever in short supply, therefore your early inspection is strongly recommended. The property is offered for sale with the benefit of immediate vacant possession upon completion and is wholeheartedly and unhesitatingly recommended for immediate viewing!
