Location & Description

Priors Hill enjoys a convenient position on the outskirts of West Malvern approximately two miles from the well served village of Colwall and a similar distance from the cultural spa town 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. Transport communications are excellent. There are mainline railway stations in Great Malvern, Malvern Link and Colwall all within a three mile radius. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about nine miles and Junction 2 of the M50 near Ledbury is approximately twelve miles. The property is well placed for access to some of the best schools in the region at both primary and secondary levels and in the private and state sectors including The Downs and Elms Preparatory Schools in Colwall, Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls School and The Chase and Dyson Perrins High Schools in Malvern. Situated on the upper slopes of the Malvern Hills, Priors Hill enjoys a stunning setting in almost one and a half acres of elegant gardens and protected woodland. It commands arguably one of the finest views that the Malverns have to offer with a wonderful outlook across the rolling countryside of Herefordshire to the Welsh mountains in the distance where one can see the sun setting on the western horizon. This is the perfect setting for families with young children as the garden, grounds and woodland provide the ideal environment for them to safely play and explore. It is a wonderful spot.

Priors Hill was originally constructed in 1968. Its extensive accommodation (approximately 204 sq metres or 2,195 sq ft) is designed over three floors. The layout ensures that many of the principal rooms enjoy the fine westerly outlook. At ground level an entrance hall leads to a small study, a cloakroom with WC, an open plan lounge and dining room, a kitchen/breakfast room and to a utility room. From here a central staircase leads both to the first floor and to the lower ground floor where there is a further inner hall, a large drawing room (with doors leading onto the external terrace), the boiler room (housing the contemporary gas fired central heating boiler) and a pantry. At first floor level there are four bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite bathroom. There is also a separate family bathroom. An external balcony at ground level provides seating areas from which one can admire the fine view. The house also has double glazed windows. Priors Hill enjoys a lovely approach over a gravelled driveway that leads to a double garage and also provides extensive private parking. The mature and elegant garden is mainly laid to lawns with large well stocked shrub borders, paved and gravelled seating areas and a network of pathways that meander throughout the grounds ultimately linking up to the large area of woodland that provides such a natural playground for children. This woodland and the garden itself are home to a substantial variety of trees, most of which are indigenous to the UK and provide a natural haven for wildlife. Framed as it is against the backdrop of the Malvern Hills, Priors Hill enjoys an unrivalled setting. Ground Floor
