Location & Description
The properties stand approximately three miles from the outskirts of the cultural spa town of Great Malvern and just over two miles from the city of Worcester, both of which provide a comprehensive range of amenities. It is only a short walk into the village itself where there is a primary school, a church two pubs, a service station and Chinese Restaurant. A regular bus service runs between Malvern and Worcester where there are mainline railway stations connecting the area to Birmingham and The Midlands, Cardiff and South Wales, The South West and to London Paddington. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway south of Worcester is about three miles away. Powick is situated in the heart of beautiful countryside and is close to a number of significant landmarks, notably the River Teme and the Severn Valley and the eight mile range of the Malvern Hills.
7 and 9 Malvern Road are a pair of semi-detached two storey period cottages which used to be known as Tabberners Pitch and are believed to date back over 200 years. They were altered and extended in both the 1920's and 1970's but since then very little has changed and they now require renovation and refurbishment. Each cottage offers enormous scope for further extension and for transformation into contemporary homes. Equally it would be possible to convert them into a much larger single dwelling. Number 7 is the smaller of the two houses with two reception rooms, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Number 9 is substantially larger, particularly on the ground floor which as mentioned earlier was extended in the 1970's and now includes a porch, three reception rooms (one which can double as a third bedroom), a kitchen, two principal bedrooms and a shower room. The houses stand on elevated ground with frontage directly onto the A449 Worcester to Malvern road. Access to the property off the A449 is currently restricted to a wide pathway that is somewhat overgrown and not currently wide enough for vehicular passage. However there is a space to park a single car at the bottom of this path and with investment it could be widened to accommodate better access. From its elevated setting there used to be far reaching views across the surrounding countryside towards the Malvern Hills (as shown in the two photographs taken in the 1970's and featured with other photos of the properties). These have since disappeared behind a canopy of trees and shrubs but the view could be restored. The gardens themselves are a strong feature of the two cottages with mature well stocked borders and shrubs combining with trees and hedging to create a private setting.

Gardens and Grounds
The property is approached from the A449 Worcester to Malvern road via a wide path. This has become overgrown and is not wide enough to accommodate passing vehicles although there is just enough space to park one car. This pathway leads to both properties which enjoy an extremely private setting in large gardens linked by a network of pathways. They are laid to lawns with mature and well stocked herbaceous and shrub borders, enclosed by trees and hedging. Within the grounds there are two GREENHOUSES measuring 12' x 8' and 5' x 4' respectively, a garden STORE 8' x6' of timber construction and a large BRICK OUTBUILDING 24' x 8' this is effectively a pair of semi detached outbuildings one half of which currently serves each cottage.

The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to persue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. The guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve (see below). Both the guide price and reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. RESERVE PRICE This is seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. A reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
