BACKGROUND - Crestfield is an agricultural smallholding having been within the ownership of the same family since new and, also, they had it built. The property is thought to be around 50 years old. Historically, the owners have kept pigs and sheep as is revealed by the animal shelters. Details of the AOC are as follows:- The occupation of the dwelling shall be limited to a person employed or last employed, locally in agriculture as defined in Section 221 (1) of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1962, or in forestry, or a dependant of such a person residing with him (but including a widow or widower of such a person).

LOCATION - The bungalow is set within an acutely sought after North Worcestershire location nestled amidst gorgeous verdant Greenbelt countryside, in the hamlet of Torton, on the fringe of historic Hartlebury; an ancient Conservation Village, especially known for its Mediaeval Castle which was formerly home to the Bishop of Worcester for more than 1000 years. Hartlebury is the most northerly Parish in the district of Wychavon and borders Kidderminster and Stourport in the Wyre Forest as well as the Parishes of Elmley Lovatt and Ombersley to the South. The Village is well watched by regular commuters given its ease of access to surrounding major towns and Motorway Links. In particular there is very swift access to Junction 6 of the M5, which is about 10 miles to the south, as is the Cathedral City of Worcester, offering a wealth of employment opportunities, extensive shopping and excellent schools. Hartlebury Village itself has a range of amenities including some excellent traditional Pubs, Village Store and a Railway Station.

AGENTS COMMENTS - Here is a most rare opportunity to modernise and re-model - or perhaps even re-build (STPP) - a detached country bungalow , which stands well in very private and high-calibre open grounds! We are forever asked for highly accessible country properties, with land, exactly such as this providing the opportunity to create luxury contemporary living coupled with the potential – subject to requisite consents - for the keeping of recreational horses and here it is!

Similar properties in this price bracket, within this and the surrounding Villages areas, with this degree of potential, would be few and far between not least because the vast majority would have already long since been extended/modernised/rebuilt ! The property is located within the Greenbelt but even so there is still great scope for subject to requisite Consents. In addition to the property itself there is a very large range of dilapidated outbuildings creating additional 'planning gain'. Here is the chance to craft your dream home within lovely grounds which make it so very private! Verdant open countryside surrounds to all sides including high quality neighbouring paddocks - such an immensely rare opportunity!
