Location & Description
The Garden Annexe enjoys a convenient position on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills in the popular community of Malvern Wells approximately a mile south of the centre of the cultural and historic spa town of Great Malvern where there is a full range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Even closer at hand and less than quarter of a mile away is a local store and a service station. Transport communications are excellent. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester and Junction 1 of the M50 at Upton upon Severn are both less than ten miles distant and there is a mainline railway station in Great Malvern itself. The property is within walking distance of the Worcestershire Golf Club and the Malvern Hills themselves. The Three Counties Showground is less than a mile distant.
The Garden Annexe is a highly individual and interesting property. It is officially listed as a ground floor flat and part of 6 Hanley Terrace which is a large Victorian residence of four self contained apartments. In reality however the annexe is not a flat or an apartment at all but a bungalow with all its accommodation at ground level. It has been sympathetically improved and refurbished over the years into a lovely home with the traditional hallmarks of an English cottage. A number of original features remain the most notable of which is a striking stone mullioned bay window in the sitting room which affords the annexe a wonderful view across open countryside. The current owners used the property as a buy to let investment and more recently as a holiday home for themselves. The accommodation includes a conservatory that doubles as a garden room, the lovely sitting room (another focal point of which is its high fireplace) a fitted kitchen (with hob and oven), a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower and WC. The property also has gas fired central heating. The property also has a small private area of attractively landscaped garden which provides a pleasant spot for sitting out and admiring the view. Approached off Hanley Terrace via a gated pathway that leads to the main entrance serving the remaining three apartments, a separate gravel pathway leads to the front of the annexe directly where double, double glazed doors open to the accommodation comprising
Garden Room/Conservatory - 12ft 4in (3.72m) × 6ft 7in (1.86m)
Double glazed to three aspects with double glazed doors into a rear yard. Ceramic tiled floor and inner door leading to
Sitting Room - 20ft 10in (6.2m) × 11ft 4in (3.41m)
Undoubtedly the main feature of the annexe, this fine room has an impressive high vaulted ceiling that gives it a real feeling of space, supplemented by a striking stone mullioned original bay window that not only introduces natural light to the room but also a fine view across the Severn Valley below. Beneath this window is seating, another focal point of the room is a fireplace with high mantle and surround, marble inset and hearth and gas fire. Picture rail, radiator and door leading to
Kitchen - 9ft (2.79m) × 7ft (2.17m)

The annexe has a small area of level ground immediately in front of it which has been attractively landscaped by the current owners into a private garden. It consists of a gravelled path and seating areas bordered by well established and colourful shrubs and a small ornamental pond. Outside power socket to front. From the garden room there is access to the rear of the building into a very small walled courtyard ideal for storage purposes.
