Waresley House is a splendid Grade II listed property dating from circa 1750 and originally built for the Sheriff of Worcester and understood to have later been the home of the Perrins family (of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce fame).

Converted into ten exclusive apartments circa 2000, the building stands discreetly out of sight at the end of The Avenue, behind a gated entrance with driveway leading up to a residents' car parking area with central island and generous space for a number of cars.

Upon entering the building, the first impression is hugely impressive. The wonderful main reception hall is incredibly spacious with exquisite period detailing including elaborate plaster cornicing and a central lift, probably converted from an original fireplace and chimney.

Located on the second floor, Apartment 9 has an entrance hall with inbuilt cloaks cupboard featuring sliding mirror panelled doors. A further door leads through to an inner hallway with doors radiating off to all rooms.

The living room features two sash windows and an Adam style fire surround incorporating coal effect electric fire set on granite hearth.

Views can be enjoyed from this elevated position looking East.

The kitchen is equipped with a range of beech wall and base cabinets with integral appliances to include electric oven, gas hob, hood, fridge, freezer & dishwasher.

Both of the double bedrooms have sash windows and feature wall sockets to suit table lamps rather than having fixed ceiling light points.

The shower room originally accommodated a bath but has been subsequently refitted with tiled cubicle having mixer shower, vanity unit with hand basin, low level wc, wood effect flooring and Velux skylight. Clearly the room could be re-planned as a bathroom if preferred.

Gas fired central heating is installed, with a Worcester boiler fitted in 2014 and last serviced in 2018. All mains services are connected including metered water.

The property is leasehold for a period of 125 years expiring in 2125, therefore with 106 years remaining. An annual ground rent, currently £75, and an annual service charge, currently £1048, are payable. Buildings Insurance is included within the service charge.

The basement area to the property is quite fascinating, with a labyrynth of diferent storage areas (not related to Apartment 9) a shared meter room and communal snooker room.

This is a most appealing property of rare character and calibre, offered to the market with the benefit of vacant possession upon completion. A personal inspection is considered essential.

Council Tax is payable to Wychavon Council, the property being rated as Band 'D'.
