The current owners of The Homestead have obtained outline planning permission for the erection of two executive detached houses within the grounds of the existing property which in itself requires complete refurbishment and updating. This is an excellent opportunity for a builder, developer or private individual to make use of what is a wonderful location and generous plot. Further details of the outline planning application and approval can be found on the Malvern Hills District Council Planning website using the Application No. M/22/00452/OUT The Homestead itself is believed to date back to the late Victorian era. It comprises a traditional two storey detached home with an externally accessed basement cellar. It offers enormous scope for redevelopment and refurbishment.
