The recently opened Malvern Vale primary school and Dyson Perrins secondary are both only a few minutes away on foot. The town has a deserved reputation for the quality of its schools and there are further choices in both the private and state sectors and at primary and secondary levels throughout the area. Transport communications are excellent. There is a regular bus service that goes past the property and two mainline railway stations in Great Malvern and Malvern Link providing direct links to The Midlands, The South West and London Paddington. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is only seven miles away.

The Homestead is believed to date back to the late Victorian era. It comprises a traditional two storey detached home with an externally accessed basement cellar. The house requires updating and refurbishment but it offers enormous scope for extension and redevelopment. There might even be potential to demolish and replace it with a brand new dwelling(s), subject of course to planning consent being granted. Within the curtilage there is extensive off road parking, a large glasshouse and a substantial brick built workshop/double garage.

The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to persue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. The guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve (see below). Both the guide price and reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. RESERVE PRICE This is seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. A reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer.
