Location & Description
Trevescan enjoys a convenient location on the corner of Peachfield Road and St Andrews Road just over mile from the centre of Great Malvern where there is a comprehensive 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 is the popular and busy centre of Barnards Green where there are further facilities including shops, takeaways and a Co-op supermarket. Transport communications are excellent. Great Malvern railway station is only a mile away with trains direct to Oxford, Reading and London. Educational facilities are excellent. The property stands within the catchment area of some of the best primary and secondary schools in the region including The Chase, Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School all of which are within walking distance. The property itself enjoys frontage on to Malvern Common and from its south and west facing location there are views not only across the common itself but beyond towards the Malvern Hills in the distance. it is a lovely spot and perfect for both children and dog walkers.
Trevescan is a distinctive detached "Arts & Crafts" residence designed and built in the classic Troyte Griffiths style. Its extremely generous two storey accommodation (256 sq metres) has been imaginatively refurbished and improved by the present and previous owners. Great care has been taken to ensure that the original integrity of its 1920's design remains, mainly through the retention of a number of significant features that are usually lost with the passage of time. These include the original wood block parquet flooring in all of the rooms at ground level, five original fireplaces (in working order), several restored cast iron Victorian style radiators, the original internal doors (together with original furniture) and some leaded glazed windows, notably on the north elevation. More contemporary improvements have enhanced the property including an efficient gas fired central heating system and twelve discreetly placed solar PV panels installed in November 2011, replacement double glazed windows where appropriate, a striking Robson Ward kitchen, fitted carpets throughout the first floor and two modern bathrooms, one of which is Victorian themed.. The accommodation itself flows beautifully and there is a genuine feeling of space and light. Most of the principal rooms enjoy views across Malvern Common to the hills and the layout of the property lends it genuine flexibility to suit different lifestyles. The finishing touch is to be found outside. Trevescan stands in a good size, level and beautifully landscaped garden which provides interest and colour throughout the year but at the same time requires only limited maintenance. A wide driveway provides off road parking for several vehicles and leads to a large garage which can easily double to satisfy buyers with hobbies or perhaps consider themselves to be engineers at heart. There are also a number of small but useful outbuildings. This is a home with a real difference and definitely one for the discerning purchaser. GROUND FLOOR
