Location & Description

Harwyn enjoys a convenient position on the outskirts of West Malvern approximately two miles from the well served 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 are mainline railway stations in both Great Malvern and Malvern Link and in the nearby village of Colwall, which is just over two miles away and also boasts a wide range of facilities. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about nine miles. The area has a deserved reputation for the quality of its education and schools in both the private and state systems at primary and secondary levels including The Downs and Elms preparatory schools in Colwall, Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School and several highly regarded state secondary schools. The property is situated on the western slopes of the Malvern Hills in an elevated position commanding fine views across Herefordshire. There is easy access to the network of paths and bridleways that criss cross the hills themselves so this is the ideal spot for walkers and dog owners. Set against a backdrop of woodland owned by Malvern Hills Conservators it enjoys a sheltered rural environment.

Originally built in the 1950s Harwyn is a traditional two storey detached house in need of updating and refurbishment. It is offered with contemporary double glazed windows and with oil fired central heating. On the ground floor a porch leads to an entrance hall off which there is a lounge, dining room, kitchen and separate WC. At first floor level a landing leads to the three bedrooms, a bathroom and again a second separate WC. Many of the rooms command wonderful views across woodland towards both the Malvern Hills and the Herefordshire countryside in the distance. The large mature garden, though perhaps a little neglected, was once clearly the pride and joy of the previous owners. It will not take much to restore it back to its former glory. Within the curtilage there is a long gated driveway providing off road parking and the property has a garage. GROUND FLOOR

The property is approached along a narrow private tarmac driveway that serves neighbouring homes and terminates at the end in a turning area off which is a pre-cast concrete GARAGE which belongs to Harwyn itself. From here a gated entrance leads onto Harwyn's own private driveway which can accommodate several vehicles and at the end of which a stepped pathway leads up to the house itself. Also off this pathway a separate gated entrance provides pedestrian access across conservators' ground to West Malvern Road, which provides an alternative pedestrian approach to Harwyn. The large mature garden is on sloping ground consisting of a network of linking pathways, lawns, well established trees and shrubs. These pathways also lead to the rear of the house where there is an enclosed courtyard and also provides access to the large oil tank, an integral BASEMENT STORE, a garden SHED of timber construction, a small GREENHOUSE and a second STORE constructed of asbestos panelling. In the main garden itself there is a larger garden STORE (10' x 6') of timber construction. From its elevated position there are fine views across the garden to woodland and beyond towards the hills and Herefordshire in the far distance.

Access to the property requires careful consideration and a plan is attached to this brochure to assist viewers. There are two approaches, one pedestrian the other vehicular. The easiest approach is to park in West Malvern Road in the large layby that lies between the turn for the Brewers Arms and Harcourt Road and then to walk down the pathway indicated in green on the attached plan. However, there is a vehicular approach (coloured blue on plan). Continue along West Malvern Road past the above parking area towards Colwall for a short distance before turning right into Harcourt Road. After 500 yards turn right again into Blackheath Way following this road for a few hundred yards. You will pass two houses known as Glenbrook and Hillside on your right hand side. Immediately after Hillside there is a white house facing you on a left hand bend. The narrow private driveway serving Harwyn passes to the right AND just in front of this property. However, visitors are advised to leave their car in Blackheath Way and take the short walk along the driveway to the very end where the gated entrance to Harwyn faces you.
