Character cottage in historic market town

In the heart of the historic Warwickshire market town of Alcester, is a delightful character cottage with garden and double garage which is going under the hammer with SDL Auctions Bigwood on Thursday 21 March.

The two-bedroomed property, 5 Moorfield Road, Alcester, is in good condition, having been well maintained and sympathetically extended. It is due to be sold at Villa Park with a *guide price of £195,000+.

The cottage has double glazing, gas-fired central heating and retains a number of original features, including exposed beams, latched cottage internal doors, and built-in cupboards and shelving.

Situated on a quiet road in Alcester, the property has two reception rooms, an attractive fitted kitchen with matching units and tiled splashbacks, hallway with under-stairs storage, rear porch and downstairs bathroom with white suite.  Upstairs there is a landing and two bedrooms.

Outside,  there is a low-maintenance rear garden with side and rear gated access plus a double garage with electric up-and-over door.

The location of the property is ideal for a professional couple or small family, with the amenities of the town centre nearby, including a host of independent shops, restaurants, pubs and a Waitrose supermarket. The highly regarded Alcester Grammar School is within walking distance, and leisure facilities include a tennis club, rugby football club, football club, fitness classes and an interesting local museum, Roman Alcester Heritage Centre.

Jim Demitriou, valuer at SDL Auctions Bigwood, said: “This is a charming little cottage which would make the ideal purchase for an owner-occupier or landlord looking to add to their portfolio, as it is sure to prove popular on the rental market. It’s in a lovely location, close to the town centre but with easy access to the countryside and to the larger cities of Birmingham and Worcester.”

Alcester has good transport links to the motorway network and towns including Stratford, Worcester, Redditch and Birmingham. From Redditch – a 20-minute drive away – there are regular trains into Birmingham.
