Location & Description

The property enjoys a wonderful setting on the western slopes of the Malvern Hills within the Parish of the highly regarded village of Mathon and only a few minutes walk from West Malvern. The large cultural spa town of Great Malvern is less than three miles away. Here 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. The popular village of Colwall is a similar distance away. Transport communications are excellent. There are mainline railway stations at both Colwall and Malvern. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester and Junction 2 of the M50 just south of Ledbury are both within easy commuting distance. The area has a deserved reputation for the quality of its schools and education at both primary and secondary levels and in both the state and private systems, including Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls School as well as The Downs and Elms Preparatory Schools in nearby Colwall. The house is surrounded by unspoilt open countryside with immediate access to numerous paths and bridleways. It is the perfect spot for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts.

Beacon View is a wonderfully located and positioned period detached property situated on this quiet, yet much sought after road amongst open countryside. Since the owners purchased the property some two years ago it has undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment and updating and now offers a fine period residence of character and charm yet coupled with the amenities of modern living. The programme of refurbishment has included internal decoration, a new kitchen, windows and external doors have all been replaced with the exception of the beautiful bow window of the sitting room. The exterior of the house has been refurbished and decorated with particular attention to any woodwork that needed replacement. The grounds have been enhanced and there is provision for off road parking for several vehicles. The initial approach to this wonderful timbered period property is via a wooden pedestrian gate positioned between blue brick pillars set into a Malvern stone wall with a mature hedge. A paved pedestrian path leads through the lawned foregarden to a storm porch with wooden supports under which is an obscure glazed composite front door that opens to the accommodation of light and airy rooms set over two floors, all of which are beautifully presented and maintained.
