Location & Description

Situated on the outskirts of West Malvern in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', The Haven sits in an area known as Croft Bank from where the elevated setting affords views over the rolling Herefordshire countryside and spectacular sunsets. There is good access to local amenities in the hillside Victorian town of Great Malvern which offers a range of independent shops, a Waitrose supermarket, the Splash leisure centre, the renowned theatre complex with concert hall and cinema. Further and more extensive shopping is available at the retail park on Townsend Way offering a range of high street names including Next, Marks & Spencer, Boots to name but a few. Transport communications are excellent with Junction 7 of the M5 motorway just outside Worcester bringing the Midlands, South West and South Wales into an easy commute. Mainline railway stations in Great Malvern and Malvern Link offer direct links to Worcester, Birmingham, Hereford and South Wales. The area is blessed with good schooling at primary and secondary levels in both the private and state sectors.

The Haven was built in 1900 and is a splendid mock Tudor semi detached house situated within a highly sought after location affording splendid views across the surrounding woodland and countryside. The house is set back from the road behind a lawned foregarden with beautiful planted beds, specimen trees and enclosed by a hedged and walled perimeter. A triple width driveway gives access to the detached double garage and additional parking to the side and from where paved pedestrian paths wind though the foregarden giving access to the front door which is set under a pitched roofed storm porch. The accommodation was sympathetically extended in 1990 to create a lovely light and airy environment ideal for family living or perhaps even to run a Bed and Breakfast business. Internally the well presented accommodation benefits from gas central heating and partial double glazing. The foregarden has a gravel patio with a paved circular area from where the pleasantries of the setting can be enjoyed. The grounds which extends to 0.3 of an acre continues to the side and rear of the property taking in its stunning setting (to be described later). The accommodation in more details comprise
