General information and approach Tucked away towards the end of the established cul de sac is 39, Forest Close.When you approach the property, you would be forgiven into thinking the agent must have put the wrong photograph and description in. Where is the four bedroom detached residence described in the detail? Don't worry its all here! Part rendered colour washed walls compliment the brickwork of this unique property.
Built around 55 years ago, the close is a mixture of different homes. This one in particular having four bedrooms, two bathrooms, breakfast kitchen, lounge and balcony. There is a garage also.
Much more than a quirky design. Having upside down living which really works here! Recently refurbished internally, together with landscaping of the large plot, so planned we are sure to maximise the view to the rear. And some view it really is!
Although the garden has undergone a lot of work, there is still scope to do things if required, however, now one can see the wood for the trees. Excuse the pun, yet once viewed you will totally understand its attraction!
Once inside the house, there is a neat breakfast kitchen, shower room and rear lounge. The lounge has this stunning full width decking off providing spectacular panoramic views over Bewdley, Trimpley and to the Clent Hills! This area obviously doubles as a second lounge area. In fact, with planning it could easily be enclosed to give you another room. Perfect for enjoying warm summer evenings, or day time relaxation with a peaceful cuppa and a good book during the day, or watching the old steam engines chugging away pulling the carriages out of Bewdley Station. You can keep it in view it as it disappears behind the fauna as it begins its journey to Arley and beyond. It really is a wonderful advantage point. Spotting the wildlife, the beautiful skies etc. Equally from inside one can admire the changing seasons or weather. Whether it the rising of the sun, the bubbling rain clouds or the stars at night. Not forgetting the changing seasons and the wonderful colours. And all from the comfort of your arm chair! Should you be an artist you would love living here!
Back inside and descend the stairs to four bedrooms and a contemporary refitted bathroom with free standing bath and separate shower cubicle. Access to the garden can be made from this level.
The lounge and bedrooms have aerial points. There are telephone points on the landing and in bedroom one.
Access is made over what we fondly call the drawer bridge! The drawbridge design frontage is a real talking point! Don't worry though, there is no water there under! And it cannot be lifted to keep the natives away! (or even the in laws!)
External metal steps descend into the garden areas to the front of the property. There is secure access to the rear also from here.
For ease of maintenance the external wood work has been replaced with Upvc. So apart from a wash down theres nothing to do! All exterior windows and doors are of UPVC double glazed units too.
Heating is provided by gas to radiators via a combination boiler. Internal doors are painted pine ledge and brace design with black metal latches.
There is a detached garage in the road in a block of four with parking in front of it.

Further landscaping can be done, however for the current owners, they enjoy it as it is.
