The River Severn cuts through the city with the cathedral alongside creating a beautiful setting for bars and restaurants - and property. There is a diverse mix of property, but ever-popular areas are Barborne, Battenhall, Claines and Warndon, St. Peters for family homes with great school catchment, and the regenerated Diglis Basin. Investment properties to let can be found around the University, and stunning rural villages surround the City.

I started life in estate agency many years ago, and can safely say it's thoroughly enjoyable (most of the time!). Along the way I have met some of the most incredible people and have been lucky enough to visit some amazing houses. Having lived in Worcestershire for over 30 years I understand why people enjoy it and love living here.
Since having my daughter I've begun to appreciate all the other things the county has to offer young families and just how important picking the right school is. Something that when looking for your next home is high on any parent's agenda.
