This substantial residential property with private parking on two drives, is within walking distance of the town centre and local amenities. The Beeches sits under a tiled roof, has sash & case windows with secondary glazing, and heating is provided by a Worcester gas boiler, renewed in 2019 and situated in the Potting Shed.

The garden is elevated well above street level and rises on a slope up to the boundary wall at the back of the property. Mature trees and shrubs are complemented by fruit bearing trees, a large vegetable patch, lawn, raised beds and a greenhouse which are ideal for keen gardeners. A well maintained hedge provides shelter and privacy from neighbours.
