Location & Description
Colwall is a very popular and sought after village situated at the foot of the western slopes of the Malvern Hills and offers a good range of local facilities including shops, post office and pharmacy, schools, a doctor's surgery, churches, hotel and public houses. There is a regular bus service to Ledbury (approximately 4 miles) and Great Malvern (approximately 2 miles). Colwall also has the benefit of a mainline railway with direct services to Birmingham New Street, Oxford and London Paddington.
Oxford House is an individual and most attractive attached character house conveniently situated in a superb location within the heart of the popular village of Colwall. Previously divided into flats several years ago, the property has been imaginatively redesigned by the current owner and now offers a comfortable family home with contemporary living accommodation whilst still retaining the features of a period property. There are original sash windows throughout, deep skirting boards and ornate fire surrounds in two of the main bedrooms. The house benefits from a pleasant south westerly aspect with several rooms enjoying a dual aspect. The accommodation on the ground floor comprises an entrance hall off which there are doors leading to a living room with a striking wood burning stove, a dining room, which could also be used as an office, and a contemporary fitted kitchen with ample space for a breakfast table and chairs. Doors from the kitchen lead to a WC and utility room, which has a service door to the side and access to an outside courtyard area. There is also a recently completed conservatory with impressive bi-fold doors leading to a raised decked terrace and the private enclosed garden with a south-west aspect. On the first floor, a spacious landing leads to the master bedroom, which enjoys fine views toward the Malvern Hills and British Camp, and benefits from an en suite bathroom. There are also three further bedrooms and a separate shower room. Outside, Oxford House has an in and out driveway. To the side there is a well established enclosed mature garden with access to two cellar rooms. There is further scope to create a garage within the grounds if required (subject to the necessary permissions).
