For dog walkers or those who enjoy the outdoor life, Malvern Link common is only about five minutes walk away and the Malvern Hills themselves just five minutes by car.

Instone is an impressive detached Victorian house dating back to the 1870's. It is one of the oldest houses in Malvern Link with a striking stone façade and a long interesting history. It is believed to have had only four owners. The vendors refurbished the accommodation in 2004 so the house has a number of contemporary features. However, they have retained its Victorian integrity keeping and restoring fireplaces, sash windows and joinery (including cornicing's, picture rails, doors and skirtings) as well the original Minton flooring in the entrance hall. The property also has a contemporary gas fired central heating system. The generous accommodation extends to approximately 2098 square feet and is therefore the perfect home for a large growing or active family. Outside there is a wide gravel driveway that can cater for several vehicles and a garage at the end of which there is a small potting shed. A good size mature level garden provides a pleasant setting and to the rear in particular enjoys a sunny aspect to the south and to the west. GROUND FLOOR
