Location & Description
15 Somers Road enjoys a convenient position less than a mile from the centre of the cultural and historic spa town of Great Malvern where there is a comprehensive choice of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex, the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium and Manor Park Tennis and Sports Centre. Less than half a mile away is the bustling and well served community of Malvern Link where there are further shops, banks, and supermarkets and on the retail park Marks & Spencer. Malvern Link common is only about five minutes away on foot. Transport communications are excellent. There is a mainline railway station within five minutes walking distance and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway south of Worcester is only about seven miles. The property itself is situated in Somers Road, a lovely tree lined street dominated by Victorian architecture in one of Malvern's most favoured residential areas.
The house was originally constructed in 1908 and is one of a pair of striking Edwardian homes with distinctive half timbered façades. Its "Arts and Crafts" design is believed to have been inspired by Charles Voysey, one of Britain's most nationally renowned architects of the time. It retains a number of its Edwardian features including well preserved leaded light windows, classic fireplaces and grates, tessellated quarry tiled flooring in the porch and hall, skirting boards and picture rails, attractive cornicing to ceilings and much of its original joinery, notably the main staircase and doors. The accommodation has been refurbished and well maintained over recent years by the present and previous owners who have managed to strike the perfect balance, not only retaining the integrity of the original Edwardian design but blending it well with a number of more contemporary features including a very well equipped kitchen, modern bathroom suites and gas fired central heating. It is well presented throughout. On the ground floor an enclosed porch leads to a lovely long hall, leading to a charming bay windowed lounge, a cloakroom with WC and utility area, an elegant dining room and a particularly well equipped kitchen/dining room. Also from this floor there is access to the basement level of the house where there are two excellent cellars. On the first floor a landing leads to three generous bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite shower room. There is also a separate family bathroom which has been reconfigured and designed to a classic Victorian theme as well as a separate WC. On the top floor are two further bedrooms, both of which are generous in size and one of which enjoys a particularly pleasant westerly view towards the Malvern Hills. Outside the house stands in an easily managed well thought out and mature landscaped garden. It has off road parking and a garage. Ground Floor
