Location & Description
Hill View Farm enjoys a convenient position on the northern outskirts of Malvern just over two miles from the town centre 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 are two mainline railway stations in Great Malvern and Malvern Link and Junction 7 of the M5 at Worcester is approximately eight miles away. The house is located within walking distance of the highly regarded Dyson Perrins Secondary School and there is a choice of primary schools in the immediate area.
Originally constructed between the world wars to provide accommodation for the police, the property stands in a large level and mature lawned garden that extends to over half an acre. It is bordered by unspoilt countryside and enjoys views across open fields and a particularly fine south facing aspect towards the Malvern Hills. This is a wonderful opportunity for buyers with imagination and ambition to purchase a house not only ideal for remodelling and refurbishment but also for extending and transforming into a very impressive contemporary home. The current owner has already obtained an approved consent (Lawful Development Certificate) to allow for the construction of a new detached studio building within the existing curtilage together with a tandem garage. However he has also asked his architect to obtain approvals (two lawful development certificates) for both a single and a two storey extensions at the side and rear of the main building which could potentially create additional living quarters and bedrooms. A further full application has been submitted for a separate two storey extension. Though these approvals have not yet been formally granted they are expected to be treated sympathetically by the local authority. Plans and drawings of these schemes are available with the selling agents. At this stage they are prepared mainly as guidance to potential buyers who themselves may have their own thoughts and ideas for converting Hill View Farm. Whatever route is adopted by purchasers it is undoubtedly a chance for them to create a home to aspire to. The current accommodation comprises: GROUND FLOOR

This is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of fruit trees, shrubs, hedged and fenced boundaries. Within the curtilage there is a small hexagonal SUMMER HOUSE and GARDEN STORE of timber construction.
It should be noted that the last few yards of Hospital Road leading up to the entrance of Hill View Farm is only partly made up and is not adopted by the local highway authority. It should also be noted that the vendor is retaining two strips of land for vehicular access to a five acre field which he also owns and which is located adjacent to Hill View Farm. The area to be retained is along the northern and western boundaries of Hill View Farm. A plan illustrating this is available with the selling agents.
