Location & Description

The property enjoys a convenient location almost equidistant from the cultural and historic spa town of Great Malvern and the well served neighbourhoods of nearby Barnards Green and Malvern Link. Malvern offers a comprehensive range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Barnards Green has a further range of local shops including a Co-op supermarket. These facilities are matched by Malvern Link where there are more shops, Co-op and Lidl supermarkets. Transport communications are excellent. There are mainline railway stations in both Great Malvern itself and Malvern Link as well as a regular bus service passing near to the property. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway near Worcester is only about seven miles away. The area is also well served by highly regarded schools at both primary and secondary levels and in the state and private sectors including Dyson Perrins, The Chase, Malvern College and Malvern St James girls School. For those who enjoy outdoor life the house is within walking distance of Malvern Link Common and the Malvern Hills are less than five minutes away by car.

176 Pickersleigh Road is a striking detached stone faced house originally constructed during the late 1930's. The accommodation does require updating and refurbishment. It offers enormous scope for extension and reshaping into a very fine contemporary home. Currently on the ground floor an attractive entrance porch leads to a reception hall off which there is a cloakroom with WC, lounge, separate dining room and a kitchen. At first floor level a landing leads to three bedrooms and a bathroom. A particularly attractive feature of the building are its large stone mullioned leaded windows which give the front facade of the house a particularly distinctive appearance. The property also has gas fired central heating. Outside, a driveway provides off road parking for at least two vehicles and leads to a garage off which there is a small workshop. Adjacent to the Garage is a further store. The garden is laid to level lawns with mature trees, shrubs and hedging giving it some privacy. At the rear of the house is a small sheltered area of garden from which there are views towards the Malvern Hills. Ground Floor

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.
