Quiet, secluded potential eco home or off-grid holiday let on the banks of the river Severn surrounded by trees and meadows. The Chalet style property would suit either complete re-development or renovation of the existing buildings.
The beautiful surroundings overlooking the river would make this a very popular holiday let or a peaceful rural weekend retreat. Otters use this part of the river and there is a Heronry in the woods opposite the house. The house is a long way from main roads, and it’s especially peaceful at night when you can only hear the owls.
The living room and main bedroom boast views of the river and adjacent woodland and there is an open fire in the living room.This property was originally bought with a view to creating an eco holiday let. The project remains unfinished due to the original renovation fund being diverted into a new business venture.
The house has been left as a shell for somebody to add the finishing touches. Inside has been left with the timber studwork partitions and newly laid 1” thick reclaimed floorboards. New double glazed wooden character windows costing nearly £4,000 have been made for the property and will be included in the sale.
• A summerhouse on stilts with veranda 8’x6’, fully insulated with t&g walls,
fitted bunk beds and views of the river.
• An outhouse with flushing toilet.
• A large shed on stilts 15’.8”x 7’.9”.
• Garden 75’ x 66’ with new boundary fence, native hedge and fruit trees.
• A wooden Jetty on the river.
The Severn Way, the country’s longest riverside path runs between the property and the river. Walking downstream is particularly beautiful as you pass through water meadows and woodland for some time before seeing any sign of human habitation.
To my knowledge the house has never flooded (not even in 2000) although the garden will flood from time to time with no ill effect.
Please note there are no mooring or fishing rights with this property although you could negotiate with the neighbours who own the river bank. If you join the local fishing club you can use the meadows next door (pictured right) for fishing.
