Location & Description

The property enjoys a convenient location in the highly regarded village of Welland, which has a local shop and stores, church, village hall, playing fields and a popular primary school. The busy riverside town of Upton upon Severn is only about three miles away. Here there are further amenities including shops, a supermarket, post office, medical centre, library, church and Hanley Castle secondary school. The larger cultural and historic town of Great Malvern is about four miles. This boasts a more comprehensive range of facilities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. The cities of Worcester (twelve miles), Cheltenham and Gloucester (approximately nineteen miles) are also within commuting distance. Transport communications are excellent. Junction 1 of the M50 near Upton upon Severn is only about six miles and there are mainline railway stations in both Great Malvern and Worcester. Educational needs are well catered for, particularly in Malvern at both primary and secondary levels in both the state and private sectors. The property is perfectly placed for anyone who enjoys country life. The Malvern Hills are only about six miles away and the river Severn is even closer at hand.

Yew Tree Lodge is believed to date back as far as the 1850s and the mid Victorian era. It comprises a traditional two storey detached cottage, which requires some updating and refurbishment. It stands in a large garden, which overlooks countryside. The house is offered with oil fired central heating and has the added bonus of a double garage and extensive off road parking. There is clearly potential to extend the existing floor area and thus to transform Yew Tree Lodge into a very fine contemporary home.
