Location & Description

This generous building plot enjoys a convenient location approximately two miles south of Great Malvern on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills. Great Malvern itself provides a comprehensive range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Closer at hand and within walking distance is a local McColls store and a Texaco filling station providing for immediate needs. Transport communications are excellent. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester, Junction 1 of the M50 near Upton and Junction 2 of the M50 near Ledbury are all within easy commuting distance. There is also a mainline railway station in Great Malvern itself. Educational needs are well catered for. The area is well known for the quality of its local schools at both primary and secondary levels and in the state and private sectors. The Worcestershire Golf Club and Three Counties Showground are only a couple of minutes driving distance and the site is close to both open countryside and the network of paths and bridleways that criss-cross the Malvern Hills so this is a perfect spot for anyone who enjoys walking or outdoor life.

Until very recently the plot was the site of a workshop for Wells Joinery, a long standing business dating back many years. It has now been cleared of all the buildings in readiness for the construction of a substantial split-level detached three storey dwelling on which planning consent was granted in December 2019. The plot itself is generous measuring approximately 45 metres in depth, almost 9 metres along its frontage and about 11 metres along its rear boundary. The site is effectively on two levels with frontage onto a private driveway that links to the Wells Road. The rear boundaries border protected woodland managed by Malvern Hills Conservators which will give the proposed new dwelling a lovely backdrop. From parts of the site there are views over the rooftops of Malvern Wells to the Severn Valley in the distance.

Planning Consent

Planning consent was granted by Malvern Hills District Council on 18th December 2019 for the construction of a new three storey split-level detached dwelling with a floor area of approximately 159 Square Metres (1711 Sq Ft). The planning reference number is 19/01266/FUL Full drawings and plans can be inspected on the Malvern Hills District Council Planning Portal by entering this reference number. Further information can be obtained from the architect who oversaw this application, Christopher Knock whose details appear on the drawings and plans. A number of conditions were set by the planning authority which will need to be met prior to construction beginning. Most of these have already been addressed by the current owner.

The Proposed Dwelling

When constructed this new dwelling will comprise a split-level, three storey detached house. The ground floor will include undercroft parking, a hall, an en-suite bedroom, a utility room, shower room and workshop. From here stairs will lead to the first floor and to the main living quarters laid out at this level to make the most of the outlook over the Severn Valley. This will consist of an open plan kitchen, sitting room and dining area with stairs leading to the second floor where there are two further bedrooms both with en-suite facilities. Other interesting features which exploit the split level nature of the house and the site include a glazed walkway from the first floor accommodation onto the rear garden and a second flight of stairs leading from the ground floor utility room to the garden.
