Location & Description
48 West Malvern Road enjoys a convenient position less than a mile from Great Malvern town centre and therefore within easy striking distance of 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. Malvern Link railway station is only about half a mile away and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is just eight miles. The property is also within the catchment area of a number of excellent primary and secondary schools.
The property itself is extremely deceptive offering much larger than average and versatile three storey accommodation. All the principal rooms are generously proportioned and the house has the benefit of gas fired central heating as well as double glazed windows. Over the years it has been the subject of general refurbishment and updating and is thus well maintained throughout. It is also a house that offers enormous flexibility. It can be adapted either to accommodate a large growing family but is equally well suited to anyone working from home or even two family use where it could provide self contained quarters for guests or an elderly relative. It is particularly well blessed with storage space including three large cellars and two additional external stores/workshops. However, its greatest strength is its setting on the upper slopes of the Malvern Hills. From this commanding position all the principal rooms enjoy a magnificent view across the Severn Valley towards the city of Worcester in the far distance. It is a truly stunning aspect. The house is also close to a network of paths and bridleways that criss-cross the Malvern Hills themselves. Outside there is off road parking for two vehicles, a garage and a well maintained landscaped garden. Though this is on sloping ground it has been designed and laid out to provide level seating areas from which to admire the fine views. TOP FLOOR

The front retaining wall with the road had to be rebuilt by the Council in 2017. At the time the Council approached the current owners to pay for the work as they felt it was the owners responsibility. This request was refused on the advice of their solicitor as they felt the retaining wall was the responsibility of the council. Since nothing more has been heard from the Council relating to this matter and it hasn't been fully resolved so we would suggest that anyone wishing to make an offer requests their solicitor to communicate with the vendors solicitor to ensure that all parties are happy to proceed. Details of the solicitor can be provided by the John Goodwin Malvern Office.

This information has not been checked with the respective service providers and interested parties may wish to make their own enquiries with the relevant authorities. No statement relating to services or appliances should be taken to infer that such items are in satisfactory working order and intending purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves where necessary.
