Location & Description
The Manse House enjoys a convenient position approximately five minutes walk from the heart of the cultural and historic spa town of Great Malvern where there is a fine range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex, the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium and Manor Park Sports Club. Transport communications are excellent. There is a mainline railway station approximately half a mile away. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about nine miles and Junction 1 of the M50 at Upton upon Severn ten miles. The property is within walking distance of Peachfield Common and about half a mile from The Wyche Cutting (two or three minutes by car) which is the ideal gateway to the Malvern Hills. The property falls within the catchment area of some of the finest schools in the region including the renowned Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls School in the private sector and the equally popular Wyche Primary and Chase Secondary Schools in the state system.
The Maisonette is set below the deconsecrated Evangelical Church. The present church building was rebuilt in 1874 by George and Henry Haddon. The Manse House and its original church were built in the Georgian period, 1827. 41a The Manse House was reshaped into a contemporary two storey home. It essentially retains its Georgian features which are all beautifully preserved including stripped floors, sash windows (with original shutters), high skirtings , period doors, pine panelling to walls, original fireplace (in working order) and original staircase to the first floor. The accommodation is approached through a particularly elegant portico which gives the façade of the house an extremely distinctive appearance. This leads into a large Georgian hall with original staircase leading up to a first floor bedroom. The remaining accommodation is at ground level and includes a large drawing room, a well equipped and spacious kitchen/breakfast room, a dining room, two good sized bedrooms and a bathroom with Jaccuzzi bath, shower and WC. There is also a gas fired central heating system. One of most noteworthy features of The Manse House is its large gravel and paved terrace which runs the full width of the house and is enclosed by stone balustrading. From its elevated spot this terrace enjoys views across the Severn Valley below, a view which is shared with many of the principal rooms.
