THE PROPERTY – A grand, high ceilinged, non-listed detached house for refurbishment, re-modelling or even total replacement. “Rose Lawn” extends to about 2,185 square feet (GIA) and stands very privately within level grounds hosting many specimen trees. The grounds extend to about 1.6 ACRES with the formal gardens and the rear agricultural land combined. Unusually, it faces away from the lane therefore making the most of the views over its own large grounds and surrounding open countryside. A sweeping driveway totally surrounds the house as do charming formal gardens which host many specimen trees adding great character. There are also many outbuildings.

LOCATION - The property is set within an acutely sought after North Worcestershire location nestled amidst verdant Greenbelt countryside, in the hamlet of Summerfield, on the fringe of historic Hartlebury; an ancient Conservation Village, especially known for its Medieval Castle. The area is well watched by regular commuters given its ease of access to surrounding major towns and Motorway Links. In particular there is very swift and direct access to Junction 6 of the M5, which is about 12 miles to the south, as is the University City of Worcester, offering a wealth of employment opportunities, extensive shopping and excellent schools. Nearby Hartlebury Village itself has a range of amenities including some excellent traditional Pubs, Village Store and a Railway Station. Closer still, there is a high quality local pub within a very short walk, namely the Mare & Colt located opposite the entrance to Summerfield Lane itself. All in all, a very private position with views yet also highly accessible!

AGENTS COMMENTS - Here then is an extraordinary chance to create your dream at an affordable price, hand in glove with lovely large grounds suitable to keep horses, and importantly, masses of parking. Subject to requisite consents there is sky high potential for imaginative re-modelling, or even total re-development, with a brand new replacement property. With the help of the right Architect then the results could be spectacular seeing the creation of a stunning 'statement' property of great originality. Similar properties in this price bracket, within this and the surrounding Village areas, with this degree of potential, would be few and far between!

BACKGROUND – “Rose Lawn” is now to be sold for the first time in more than 70 years under instructions from Executors in order to close an estate for which probate has already been granted. It has an interesting history having been requisitioned by the Government during WW2 as an administration building before being returned to a fine country residence and family home. This goes some way to explaining the series of brick and concrete remnants within the grounds that would have been constructed by the Ministry of Defence. These buildings could however retain a degree of importance even today as from the perspective of planning they are considered as likely to have a 'trade-in' value for a new owner who might wish to develop the site further.

DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL (STPP) - Whilst “Rose Lawn” could easily be refurbished to its former glory; subject to the necessary planning permissions the property has obvious scope for extension or could, perhaps, be demolished and replaced with a brand new dwelling. The numerous outbuildings could also offer 'trade-in' value for a new owner who might wish to undertake more significant re-development of the site.

PLANNING - The property is sold subject to any development plan, tree preservation order, town planning schedule, resolution or notice which may be, or become to be, in force, and subject to any road widening or improvement schemes, land charges and statutory provisions or bylaws without any obligation on the vendors to specify them. Our comments constitute third party advice and prospective purchasers should make their own independent enquiries.

BOUNDARIES - The purchaser shall be deemed to have full knowledge of all boundaries and neither the vendor nor the vendor's agents will be responsible for defining the boundaries or ownership thereof. The included plan is for identification purposes only.
