Seller Insight “When I purchased this house four years ago it was considerably smaller,” says Cameron, “but it sat on a large plot in a fantastic location and so I could see that it had huge potential to be transformed into a really generous family home, and I’d say that that potential has now been realised.” “What was a rather modest three-bedroom house has now been greatly enlarged to incorporate four generous bedrooms – two of which are en suite – a big family bathroom, and ground-floor living areas that have a great feeling of spaciousness. The layout has actually changed a lot. The reception hall is wide and long and both the living room and the dining room flow straight from it, so it has a very open-plan feel. It’s now a house that’s perfect for busy family life and it’s also extremely conducive to entertaining.” “Even though the house has been almost doubled in size, the gardens to both the front and back are still generous and very family friendly,” continues Cameron. “To the front there’s ample room for parking, and to the back there’s a very nice stone patio and a large lawn that’s surrounded by an attractive border of mature shrubs and trees. The house is on a very quiet road, so the garden is peaceful and very safe and secure for children.” “My favourite part of the house is probably the main living room,” says Cameron. “It’s very spacious and has two sets of French doors that open out onto the patio terrace. It’s a lovely room to settle down in and because of the connection with the garden it’s also great for entertaining.” “The location of the house is excellent,” says Cameron. “Silverdale is a quiet, tree-lined avenue, but the house is within walking distance of all of the local shops and amenities, and the nearby transport links are so good that it’s easy to get just about anywhere.” “Even the hallway is lovely and big,” says Cameron, “and it incorporates the main staircase and a galleried landing, which is not only very attractive, but also enhances the feeling of space.”*

The house was pretty much in its original state when I bought it and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the process of bringing it into the 21st Century. It’s now a really spacious, attractive and comfortable family home and I’ll be sad to leave.

LOCATION Silverdale Avenue is conveniently located in a quiet residential road close to County Hall and the new large Waitrose on the popular London Road. Nunnery Wood Primary and High Schools are within walking distance of the property as is Worcester Sixth Form College. Worcester City Centre and Junction 7 of the M5 are approximately 2 miles away. Worcester is the site of the final battle of the Civil War. The River Severn runs through the middle of this attractive city, overlooked by the 10th-century Worcester Cathedral. The county town and historic city of Worcester is just 17 miles southwest of Birmingham and 23 miles north of Gloucester. The city historically hosted a flourishing glove making industry and was the home of Royal Worcester Porcelain as well as, for much of his life, the composer Sir Edward Elgar. Providing the ideal location for retail therapy, there are three large covered shopping centres and an additional three out of town shopping parks. The main commercial centre can be found on the recently modified high street, home to a number of major retail chains and the older shopping streets contain numerous individual boutiques. There is also a racecourse, theatre, cricket club and university. The green city of Worcester provides three spacious parks and two large woodlands covering over 33 hectares. The banks of the River Severn provide an idyllic setting for an evening stroll or bike ride, surrounded by the wonderful Worcestershire countryside bounded by the Malvern Hills and pretty market towns. Historic landmarks include the spectacular Worcester Cathedral, dating back to the 10th Century and the Queen Anne style Guildhall designed by Thomas White, a pupil of Sir Christopher Wren in 1722. The latest landmark is Worcester’s new central library, ‘ The Hive ‘, a striking gold roofed building on the site of the former cattle market.
