Location & Description
The property enjoys a convenient location approximately a mile from the centre of the cultural and historic Spa town of Great Malvern where there is a comprehensive range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Transport communications are excellent. There is a mainline railway station in Great Malvern itself as well as links to the M5 and M50 motorways at Worcester, Upton upon Severn and Ledbury, all within approximately twenty minutes drive. Malvern is well know for the quality of its educational facilities at primary and secondary levels in both the state and private sectors. The property is well placed for easy access to all of them. Situated as it is on the upper slopes of the Malvern Hills, 41 Wyche Road is within walking distance of the network of paths and bridleways that criss-cross the hills themselves.
Laurel Bank is a traditional two storey semi-detached Edwardian house dating back to the early 1900's. The present owners acquired it just under ten years ago. During the intervening period they have completely transformed the house into a very fine contemporary home. They have imaginatively and sympathetically restored the fabric of the building, trying wherever possible to retain its Edwardian heritage. Some features are worthy of special note including the installation of a new gas fired central heating system (underfloor heating at ground level and radiators on the first floor), double glazed windows and new rendering to the external elevations of the house which was carefully chosen to maintain the integrity of its age and original design. Other features include Amtico flooring at ground level, pine internal doors, fitted blinds and curtains, TV points in most rooms, fitted furniture in the main bedroom as well as a particularly well equipped kitchen and two contemporary shower rooms. The house also has a full MVHR (mechanical ventilation heat recovery) system. This means that no separate extractors in the bathrooms and kitchen are required as every room has the air changed/filtered. It is however the setting of 41 Wyche Road that provides its most dramatic interest, especially its wonderful views over the rooftops and across the Severn Valley below. It stands in a large wooded hillside garden and enjoys almost complete privacy, it is the perfect environment for adventurous children but equally there are level areas where one can sit out and enjoy the spectacular outlook. The garden and woodland are carefully linked by a strategically designed and carefully laid out network of steps and pathways. Within the grounds are three Victorian style low energy LED lanterns (designed to mimic and sound like the old gas lanterns that are so much a feature of Victorian Malvern). There is also a recently erected purpose built steel platform that provides private off road parking for two vehicles. Ground Floor

From Wyche Road the property is approached across a recently erected steel framed platform that provides safe private off road parking for two vehicles. It is flanked by stone pillars, each of which support Victorian style low energy LED lanterns. Gated steps lead onto a path flanked each side by raised shrubs and trees. The pathway continues to the house itself which is surrounded on three sides by an attractive flagstone terrace/seating area which in turn leads to a small lawned garden enclosed by hedging and from which one can sit out and admire a wonderful view across the Severn Valley. On the other side of the house there is a small SHED of timber construction. Here also is an outside tap. Situated on the edge of the terracing is a SMALL WOODSHED. The stepped pathway continues down the slope to a lower flagstone terrace enclosed by an attractive brick and stone semi-circular wall. Here there is a more substantial garden STORE 10' x 6' of timber construction and a smaller garden STORE 6' x 4' also on timber construction. Both have power connected. Behind is another smaller timber shed measuring 6' x 4'. A further gate opens onto another stepped pathway that meanders throughout the rest of the grounds which are entirely given over to mature woodland. Within the grounds are numerous varieties of trees and shrubs that provide interest and colour, sanctuary for every manner of wildlife and birds and a natural playground for adventurous children.
