Location & Description
The property enjoys a fine elevated position on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills, only a few hundred yards 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. There is a further choice of amenities in nearby Malvern Link, which is only half a mile away and where there is a mainline railway station and two service stations. Junction 7 of the M5 at Worcester is about 7 miles distant and the property is conveniently placed less than ten minutes' on foot from Malvern Link common and has easy access onto the Malvern Hills themselves. Enjoying a pleasant cul de sac setting Holly Lodge commands views over the adjacent roof tops of Great Malvern towards the Severn Valley in the east and in the opposite direction to the west of the Malvern Hills.
Originally constructed in the early 1970s the property is a traditional two storey detached house with spacious well maintained accommodation. It has gas fired central heating and double glazed windows. Various improvements have been carried out in recent years including the replacement of the original boiler, the installation of a modern well equipped kitchen and the replacement of all the bathroom and cloakroom with contemporary sanitary ware. Most of the principle rooms make the most of the wonderful elevated setting and of the views that the house enjoys. On the ground the floor an enclosed porch leads to a cloakroom with WC, the main reception hall, a large open plan lounge/dining room, the fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room and a utility room. At first floor level a spacious landing leads to four good size bedrooms one of which has its own contemporary en suite bathroom with shower and WC. There is also a separate modern family bathroom also with shower and WC. The large garden stands on sloping ground but is designed to keep maintenance to a minimum laid out as it is to a mixture of lawns, paved terracing and seating areas, mature trees and shrubs. It is extremely private. A sloping driveway (initially shared with a neighbouring property) provides private parking and leads to the garage. It should be noted that the gas fired central heating system is boosted by energy saving solar panels (generating a small income) and that there is a functioning alarm system. GROUND FLOOR
