Here is a property with a broad market appeal! This given that it will be of equal interest to developers, and also, professional buyers wishing to continue its use as offices. In addition, investors and speculators may also have an eye toward a profitable letting income - this either as the existing office space, or indeed, as residential apartments in accord with the planning consent. As well as residential letting, holiday letting would also be very easy to imagine, given the town centre location hand in glove with Bewdley's prominence as a tourist destination.The Dog House could therefore be many things to many people but what is for certain is that is it a very interesting building of great originality which could function for investment immediately in its existing use.SITE AND LOCATION - The Dog House is non statutory Listed, but does fall within the Bewdley town Conservation Area. It fronts Dog Lane and sits between Bewdley Farm Shop and the entrance to the George Hotel car park. THE PLANNING CONSENT - [The Architects drawings and other planning documents are available upon request]. Full planing was approved by Wyre Forest District Council on 13 October, 2020 under application number 20/0154/FUL and the formal decision notice describes the consent as:-"Change of use of first floor offices into two self contained dwellings." The proposal is for the current offices at first floor to be changed into two residential apartments, each with 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen, and bathroom all as per the included Architects drawing. The scale and appearance of the building is to remain largely as existing, except for the addition of four new roof lights to match the existing roof lights (see proposed elevations). The proposed apartments are also to be accessed via the retained staircase as shown on the plan.Building Regulations Approval - Conditional Building Regulations were recently approved by North Worcestershire Building Control on 14 November 2022. Full details and drawings are available upon request.Satisfying Planning Conditions, Involving Access to Riverside Elim Church - As with any Planning Permission, the consent is subject to conditions. The key point here is that access will be needed to the church area below, and that will require agreement of the occupiers. This is because, in order to satisfy the planning conditions for noise mitigation measures, it will involve soundproofing works to be undertaken from within the part of the property subject to a long lease to Riverside Elim, namely the ground floor. Please refer to the Noise Impact Statement and Building Regulations specifications. Equally, a copy of the lease is also available upon request.Position of Riverside Elim Church for Access - We understand from our client that Riverside Elim are prepared to allow access, subject to certain requirements being met. Please see a copy of the letter from Keelys Solicitors dated 15 February 2022, which outlines these requirements. Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves that they are happy with this letter or otherwise make their own enquiries as they see fit. The letter is addressed to the current owner and we, as selling Agents, have had no direct involvement or conversations whatsoever.SIZES: The following dimensions have been provided by Zebra Architects themselves as per their approved drawing attached to the planning consent.*THE LEFT HAND PROPOSED UNIT - With a superficial gross internal area of 88 square metres - OR - 48 square metres when measured using the RICS Code of Measuring Practice.THE RIGHT HAND PROPOSED UNIT - With a superficial gross internal area of 94 square metres - OR - 52 square metres when measured using the RICS Code of Measuring Practice.OUTSIDE - The property has no parking, nor any private outside amenity. It does however sit next to a large Wyre Forest District Council owned public car park whereby season passes can be purchased.

SERVICES - Mains services connected to the property include gas, electric, water and drainage.

Freehold subject to a lease for the ground floor. 99 Years from 1 January 2003 to Elim Trust Corporation with a £50 per annum ground rent. We have not verified details of tenure. The Solicitor acting for any purchaser should be asked to confirm full details

AGENTS NOTE ONE: The quoted Gross Internal Area Measurements (GIA's) have been provided by Zebra Architects and not ourselves.AGENTS NOTE TWO - These particulars are prepared in good faith and in the spirit of trying to be helpful and informative. However prospective purchasers should, obviously, make their own detailed enquiries in respect of all planning / planning conditions /access / ownership / services / building regulations / valuation matters / the Keelys LLP letter, etc. and we, as Agents, give no guarantee, or warranty, whatsoever. An auction contract pack will also be prepared pre-sale. The purchase of development property can be technical and complex. Prospective purchasers are advised to read the planning consent/contract pack, and to consult a Solicitor with commercial expertise before bidding. Copies of the planning consent and approved drawings are available upon request, or can be found on NOTE THREE: We confirm that the seller knows of no access issue/dispute. We, as agents, have also sold the property previously, and again, are unaware of any access difficulties. The property also clearly has an established access. Notwithstanding, we understand from our client's Solicitor that historic legal documents do not give any formal warranty/confirmation as to the exact nature of any rights beyond that which were granted as referred to in the deeds and for those purposes . Therefore, prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves through their own enquiries, but to a large degree this situation is typical of complex period town centres such as Bewdley. STATUTORY FIXTURES & FITTINGS: Any fixtures and fittings not mentioned in these Sale Particulars are excluded from the sale. Certain fixtures and fittings may be available by separate negotiation with the vendors. DIRECTIONS TO THE PROPERTY: Proceed from Bewdley town centre up Load Street, bearing right to Welch Gate and then right again into Dog LaneVIEWING: By appointment with the agent's offices.SURVEYS & VALUATIONS: Phipps & Pritchard with McCartneys carry out Homebuyers Reports & Valuations.
