Located within the Bengeworth area of Evesham, this well proportioned and beautifully presented home has retained many of its period features and Victorian charm whilst the rooms to the rear of the house have been opened up to create a lovely open plan space which is IDEAL FOR ENTERTAINING and leads out onto the decked area overlooking the garden. There is currently a large timber shed to the far side of the garden but this will be removed by the vendors prior to sale leaving a space for off-road parking with access from the lane to the side of the house.
Bengeworth benefits from a selection of local shops, restaurants, pubs, a supermarket, St. Peters Church, Doctors Surgery, two schools and the increasingly popular Art Deco Regal Cinema and is within easy reach of the bypass providing good road links to the north and south. It is also only a short distance to the River Avon and over the bridge to the town centre.
