AGENTS COMMENTS - Here is a lovely opportunity to create county style properties, in the town! Without question the completed properties would meet with good demand, being suited to buyers of all ages with plentiful town amenities right on the doorstep! We are also very happy indeed to provide help and guidance as to projected final values based upon prevailing market conditions if required.The sellers Solicitor is in the course of preparing commercial searches in order that any potential purchaser can quickly make an informed decision.THE SITE - The site is located along Manor Road, off Minster Road. Please see the included Architects plan whereby the site is outlined in red. In addition to private gardens, the drawn scheme also includes a shared community orchard/allotment area to the north section of the site. From here, there are views over the canal and river across to Wilden.THE BUILDINGS - A range of brick and tile barns, arranged with a courtyard style layout, and originally used as grain stores and a milking parlour.LOCATION - The barns are currently part of Manor Farm. They have a Greenbelt setting just moments from the Staffordshire/Worcestershire Canal which can be accessed with 250m at the end of Manor Road. In one direction, this offers a short scenic walk of only half a mile straight into Stourport town centre, and in the other, the towpaths will lead you through Kidderminster plus the pretty villages of Wolverley, Cookley, Kinver and onwards! In addition to the canal system, the footpath at the end of the road also provides direct cross-country walks through Wilden village and to the ancient Hartlebury Common. In short, there are an abundance of different options but aside from the common itself then the Leapgate Circular walk is perhaps one of the best known. Hartlebury Common Nature Reserve is the largest and most important area of heathland remaining in Worcestershire and is also a site of Special Scientific Interest, covering an area of about 229 acres! In short, this location offers the best of both town and country.PRE-APPLICATION ADVICE - Pre-application advice has been sought from Wyre Forest District Council, and we confirm that a positive reply was received on 26 January 2023 under reference number 22/0110/PAE.
