Glenthorne Avenue, Brickfields, Worcester WR4


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
The propertyThe property comprises an ex-local authority semi-detached house occupying a predominantly south-facing position in Glenthorne Avenue off Brickfields Road within the north-eastern sector of Worcester and some one and a half miles (approximately) from the city centre via Brickfields Road, Astwood Road, Rainbow Hill and Lowesmoor.The house affords most reasonable frontage and the kerb has been lowered to facilitate access to potential car parking space within the front garden. There is wide side pathway access to the large but extensively overgrown garden at the rear.The house presents a not unpleasant façade under a slate clad roof and the elevations have comparatively recently been overclad with panelling of a pebbledash and brick appearance.Internally the accommodation comprises:Reception Hall. Lounge. Kitchen / Dining Room. Landing.Two Bedrooms. Bathroom.The property benefits from double-glazing (where specified) but has generally fallen into a state of disrepair over recent years and a programme of improvements is needed to bring the house up to fully modern standards.Whilst this is by no means intended to be anything other than a general guide we do mention the following to save inconvenience to those who might be unable/unwilling to cater for such a schedule despite being attracted by the aspect of potential.It may be worthwhile to explore the aspect of damproof course integrity and timber treatment whilst the floors remain exposed. One could confidently expect to have to upgrade/extend the electrical wiring system. Whilst the property is already carcassed for gas fired radiator central heating it would be prudent to replace the currently defunct boiler and install more modern radiators. The kitchen, in common with the bathroom, needs to be stripped out and completely refitted. Then are ancillaries and complete redecoration.Externally the gardens are quite overgrown but the kerb at the front, as aforementioned has already been lowered to facilitate access to potential hardstanding / car space within the front garden: There is no scope for a garage.Having said all that, we remain of the view that the property will be of worthwhile interest to those willing to take on a project to secure perhaps a first home in current market conditions where little of this nature is seemingly available in this price range.Inspection recommendedaccommodationHalf obscure-glazed front door to:-reception hall:Cloak rack.
