Location & Description
Crellin House enjoys a convenient position only about ten minutes' walk 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. Transport communications are excellent. There is a mainline railway station also within walking distance and junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is only about eight miles away. For those who enjoy walking, culture or more leisurely pursuits, Malvern theatre and its adjacent Priory Park are also less than ten minutes on foot and the full range of the Malvern Hills is only about five minutes by car. Crellin House is situated in arguably Great Malvern's premier residential area. The elegant and beautifully manicured grounds of Malvern College are virtually next door to the building.
Apartment 17 is on the top floor, which is easily accessed either via the communal lift or by a separate stairway. From this commanding position the apartment enjoys a glorious view across the rooftops of Malvern and the college grounds towards the Severn Valley in the distance. The view alone justifies a visit to the property. The complex was purpose built for the over 60's and has the added advantage of well maintained communal gardens, which are for the benefit of all residents, a lift serving all floors and shared facilities that include a resident's lounge and laundry room with washing machines and tumble driers. There is also a guest suite which is made available at an additional charge for visitors. There is a House Manager who is on site five days a week as well as a 24 hour two way audio alarm system. The building has a security door entry system. The well maintained accommodation includes an entrance hall, a lounge, fitted kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom with shower and WC. All of the principal rooms enjoy the wonderful outlook. The apartment also has low tariff storage heating and double glazed windows.
