BACKGROUND – The reason for sale is that our clients have moved into a nursing care home and therefore the property is offered for sale with immediate vacant possession. Our clients have owned The Hawthorns since 1992. Albeit requiring a degree of upgrading by modern tastes The Hawthorns is a quality property which has been well maintained and therefore ready for immediate occupation if needed.

LOCATION - The Hawthorns is set within one the most revered rural Villages in North Worcestershire and a very pretty slice of 'old England' - Chaddesley Corbett. It lies on the edge of the Wyre Forest District midway, between the regional centres of Kidderminster and Bromsgrove, and is forever well watched by regular commuters by virtue of its swift and simple accessibility to the M5/M42 Midlands motorway network. The Village itself has a range of amenities including three good traditional Pubs, all of which have been featured in the Good Beer Guide, and the closest of which being The Fox Inn which is literally just a few hundred yards from the property! Other features of this picture postcard village include a General Store, Butchers, Hairdressers, Tea Room, Florist, Sports Club, a renowned grand hotel called Brockencote Hall and a gorgeous Grade I Listed 11th century church known as St Cassian's. In respect of schooling then the village is also home to Chaddesley Corbett Endowed Primary and also an additional independent public establishment called Winterfold Primary School.

AGENTS COMMENTS - "So frequently sought but so very rarely found! - We are forever asked for highly accessible village bungalows for modernisation exactly such as this providing the opportunity to create luxury contemporary living but what is on offer here is simply beyond rare! In order to quantify the latter part of that statement we have conducted some historic research using the 'plus' area of, only accessible to Agents/Surveyors, and this indicates that there has not been another detached bungalow for sale within Chaddesley Corbett itself in this £350,000 to £450,000 price range for quite literally years! The last record of anything even remotely similar to the subject property goes way back to the year 2011! Here then is an extraordinary chance to create your dream Chaddesley home at an affordable price, hand in glove with lovely open views and with the help of the right Architect then the results could be spectacular! There is over 11m of clear left hand side amenity lending all kinds of possibilities for imaginative adaption subject to requisite consents. The aspect of further potential aside then, even in its existing form, the accommodation and layout is still equally more than comfortable to suit the retirement buyer just seeking a well located bungalow to improve and personalise.”

LAND AND SURROUNDINGS – The Hawthorns stands well on a very private, and also level, plot extending to about 0.304 of an acre. There are open views over neighbouring field/farm land to both the front and rear and the front aspect has likely changed very little in hundreds of years being a timeless verdant expanse framed by the old oak trees which flank Fox Lane.
