Here is a property with a very
broad market appeal! This given that it will be of
equal interest to developers looking to sell on
and also professional buyers wishing to
continue its use as offices. In addition investors
and speculators will also have an eye toward a
profitable letting income - this either as the
existing office space or indeed as luxury
apartments in accord with the planning consent.
As well as residential letting then holiday letting
would also be very easy to imagine given the
town centre location hand in glove with
Bewdley's prominence as tourist destination.
The Dog House could therefore be many things
to many people but what is for certain is that it
is a very interesting building of great originality
which could function for investment and
secured lending purposes immediately in its
existing use and such accommodation is rare
right in the centre of historic Bewdley!

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an EPC. EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
