EPC "G"

Location & Description

The property enjoys a convenient position barely ten minutes on foot from the centre of the cultural and historic Spa town of Great Malvern where there is a fine 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. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is only about eight miles away and there is a mainline railway station which is also within walking distance. Educational needs are particularly well catered for. The property is only a few minutes on foot from both Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls School in the private sector and from The Chase Secondary as well as a number of highly regarded primary schools. For those who enjoy walking the dog or outdoor activity the house is close to the Malvern Hills and Malvern Common. The beautifully manicured grounds of Malvern College are literally on the doorstep.

Orwell Lodge is an elegant and distinctive detached Victorian house dating back to the late 1800's. Its generous accommodation which is on four floors is currently divided into three self-contained apartments. Some updating and refurbishment is required. The property lends itself well for conversion back to its original use as a single dwelling. It has a floor area of approximately 3800 sq. feet. The building stands in a lovely mature garden and grounds which enjoy dual frontage onto both Woodshears Road and Albert Road South, the latter of which provides vehicular access to a detached garage. This extensive dual frontage might offer potential for the creation of some residential development within the curtilage. However, it must be stressed that planning consent has neither been sought or obtained and the property is therefore offered as it stands.


We have been advised that mains gas, electricity, water and drainage are connected to the property. At strategic points throughout the house there are TV and telephone points installed. This information has not been checked with the respective service providers and interested parties may wish to make their own enquiries with the relevant local authority. No statement relating to services or appliances should be taken to infer that such items are in satisfactory working order and intending occupiers are advised to satisfy themselves where necessary.
