Location & Description
Cedar House enjoys a convenient position approximately two miles south of the cultural and historic town of Great Malvern where there is a comprehensive choice 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 1 of the M50 motorway near Upton upon Severn is only about 8 miles, Junction 7 of the M5 at Worcester 10 miles and there is a mainline railway station in Great Malvern itself. Educational facilities are second to none at both primary and secondary levels and in the state and private sectors including the Chase secondary, Malvern Wells and the Wyche primaries, Malvern College and Malvern St James girls' school. The property is situated on the outskirts of town in the highly regarded community of Malvern Wells. The Worcestershire Golf Club is less than half a mile away and the Three Counties Showground is a similar distance. Open countryside is virtually on the door step and the network of paths and bridleways that criss-cross the Malvern Hills is within walking distance.
Originally constructed and completed in 2011, Cedar House is a fine example of contemporary architecture and design. It carries the residue of a 10 year Zurich warranty and was planned with efficiency in mind to ensure that heating and energy bills are kept to a minimum through a combination of an effective gas fired heating system (with independent thermostats on each radiator) and high levels of insulation. The property also has a number of really interesting features including a particularly impressive glazed gable that embraces both the main reception room and bedroom and gives the house its striking rear facade as well as a large inglenook style fireplace in the drawing room, factory treated double glazed German designed windows, high quality Travertine wall and floor coverings in the shower rooms and bathroom, stainless steel power points and light switches, granite work tops and slate flooring in the kitchen and the liberal use of natural oak timbering not only in the hall and to the staircase but in the actual design and structure of the house itself. Many of the raw materials were sourced from exclusive European companies. These features together high quality workmanship not only gives the house its distinctive appearance but also its quality finish. On the Ground Floor a large entrance hall leads to a cloakroom, a very impressive drawing room, a large open plan dining room and kitchen, the latter of which is fully equipped with a full range of accessories and white goods. There is also a utility room. On the First Floor a generous landing leads to a fine master bedroom with its high vaulted ceiling and gable window leading onto a lovely balcony and its own en suite shower room. There are three further good sized bedrooms, a separate shower room and family bathroom. A high security electronically operated gated entrance opens onto a gravel driveway leading to an oak framed garage block consisting of a single garage and an adjacent car port. The gardens are a delight. They were carefully designed and have now matured to provide a wonderful setting for the house as well as variety, colour and interest throughout the year. At their centre is an ancient Cedar that lends its name to the house itself. From the grounds there are views towards the Malvern Hills. The accommodation in detail comprises: GROUND FLOOR

The front garden consists of a network of carefully orchestrated tarmac , stone and gravel pathways flanked by rows of maturing Lavender as well as well stocked shrub and rose borders, ornamental trees and attractive trellising supporting climbing shrubs (including Honeysuckle, Rose and Clematis). Another feature of the front garden includes its privacy and a number of attractive ornamental trees. There is also external lighting and an outside tap. Secure gated access to each side of the house leads into the impressive rear garden. This is principally laid to lawn with a large partially covered sun terrace enclosed by attractive oak timbering supporting the balcony above and providing down lighting.

The remainder of the rear garden consists of a series of fully stocked shrub borders and some particularly fine trees the most notable of which is an ancient Cedar which gives its name to the property. The rear garden is fully enclosed by hedging and fencing and enjoys a view of the hills. When constructed an external bat box was strategically placed on the outside of the house. This is now occupied by Pipistrelle bats. There is also a second external tap and outside lighting.
The vendor came across a small Japanese Knotweed plant in one of the shrub borders in the front garden. Fortunately this was identified early so no damage was done. A specialist company removed the plant and carried out the required precautionary measures. A ten year guarantee has been supplied by this company which will of course be passed to buyers.
