Location & Description

This is a unique opportunity to acquire a delightful semi-detached cottage that has been expensively refurbished throughout since 2014 and which is situated within a just a few minutes walk from the centre of Upton upon Severn where there is a fine range of amenities including shops, bank, supermarkets, inns and a primary school as well as having a medical centre with doctor and dental surgeries.

Upton upon Severn is well known for its lively entertainment including folk, jazz, blues, point to point and river festivals. Educational facilities are well catered for with a primary school in the town and Hanley Castle High School close by.

The town is also well placed for transport communications with mainline railway stations at both Malvern and Worcester having connections to Birmingham and London Paddington. Junction 1 of the M50/M5 motorway is only 4 miles distant and brings the Midlands, Cheltenham, Gloucester and most parts of the country within a convenient commuting time.

Upton is surrounded by lovely countryside and is an ideal location for those who enjoy outdoor recreation with many walks available along the River Severn and the Malvern Hills.

1 Severn Cottages has been the subject of considerable improvement since 2014 by the present owners and the end result is a credit to them. It isn't possible within the confines of these details to completely do full justice to the property but in brief some of the work carried out includes new radiators, power points and light fittings, velux windows and French doors, rebuilt fireplace, staircase, overhaul of the roof terrace, replastering, rendering to the front elevation, addition to the brick walls with pillars and wood panels. The cottage now combines considerable charm and character with contemporary living. It benefits from gas fired central heating and double glazing and the agent strongly recommends an inspection to fully appreciate the quality of its interior, discreet use of the outside space and its most convenient location.
