Location & Description
The Corner enjoys a convenient location on the junction of Court Road and Christ Church Road in a highly regarded residential area less than a mile from the centre 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. It is even closer to the highly popular neighbourhood of Barnards Green where there is a further range of facilities. Transport communications are excellent. Great Malvern railway station is less than five minutes away on foot and there are regular bus services near to the property. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is only about eight miles. Educational needs are well catered for. The Corner is within walking distance of The Chase High School as well as Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School.
The Corner is a significant and contemporary complex of six attractive apartments imaginatively designed and converted from an original building in 2015. Apartment 1 is on the ground floor and is offered with the bonus of the remainder of its original ten year warranty. It is designed around a lovely open plan kitchen and living area with two bedrooms and a well equipped shower room with WC. However this is only half the story as it is offered with a number of interesting additional features. These include a particularly generous range of kitchen appliances (dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer, oven, separate hob and microwave). Integrated LED lighting ensures that the apartment is always bright and there is provision for both satellite TV and DAB. Fibre optic cables are also built into the design. The very efficient and economic gas fired central heating is operated via a Nest system which allows it to be programmed remotely. This also has other capabilities which can be added. There is an automated video entry phone system. Two other features worthy of mention include attractive oak flooring to the living areas and carpets to the bedrooms as well as double glazed windows and external doors. Apartment 1 has the advantage of an external private rear terrace which attracts the morning sun and a further private west facing front garden that catches the afternoon sunshine. It also has its own allocated parking space. Solar panels installed alongside the car park generate electricity that operates the power and lighting to communal and external areas of the building.

Approaching the building from Christ Church Road a gated path leads to the front door. Ground level LED lights illuminate this at night. To the left of this path is an attractively landscaped area of garden that belongs to Apartment 1. It is west facing and therefore catches the afternoon and evening sunshine. This consists of paved and gravelled surfaces with ornamental beech hedging and bay trees. Two external wall lights illuminate the garden at night. The rear of the building and the car park are approached off Court Road. There is an allocated car park space for Apartment 1 owned under the lease. Steps (also illuminated at night with ground level LED lights) lead from the car park itself into the communal hall. Here also is the external terrace/seating area belonging to Apartment 1 which is enclosed by trellised fencing and illuminated at night by two wall lights. This terrace also attracts the morning sun. Running the full length of the car park are solar panels which provide power for community lighting and the communal hall as well as a separate electric vehicle charging point. To the side of the building is a gated bin store for recycling and general rubbish, approached from the car park for the residents and from the street for the collecting vans.
We have been advised that mains water, electricity, gas and drainage are connected to the property. Solar panels in the car park provide additional power for the communal areas of the building and for an electric vehicle charging point.
