Location & Description
Burgh Cottage is located in one of Malvern's most prestigious roads situated equi-distance between the Victorian hillside town of Great Malvern and the bustling shopping precinct of Barnards Green. Both areas offer a range of independent shops, Co-op and Waitrose supermarkets as well as restaurants, eateries, take aways, public houses, churches and community facilities. Further and more extensive amenities are available at the retail park on Townsend Way in Malvern Link which offers a number of high street names including Boots, Next and Marks & Spencer to name but a few. Transport communications are excellent with a main line railway station at Great Malvern close by which has direct links to Worcester, Birmingham, Hereford, London and South Wales. The regular bus service in Great Malvern and Barnards Green connects the neighbouring areas. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway is just outside Worcester bringing the Midlands, South West and South Wales into an easy commute. Educational needs are well catered for at primary and secondary level in both the state and private sectors.
Burgh Cottage is a charming home in a most favourable road and set within generous and beautiful grounds. It is believed the cottage was built in the early 19th century and has many strong characteristics which point to it having been designed by the architect Troyte Griffith. It was once attached to Lawnside Girls' School as the Gardener's Cottage. Currently the property serves as an excellent family home comfortably positioned within mature gardens, which extend to 0.2 acres. A wooden pedestrian gate set into the Malvern stone walled perimeter opens to the gravel pathway accessing the planted foregarden and leading to the hardwood front door with wrought iron fittings, set under the pitched tiled roof of the storm porch with wooden support and quarry tiled floor.
