Location & Description

Mulberry House enjoys a convenient position less than three miles south 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 and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. The property is handily placed for access to the M5/M50 motorways either at Upton (approximately seven miles) or at Ledbury (ten miles). There are mainline railways stations at Malvern, Ledbury and the nearby village of Colwall. There is an excellent choice of local education in both the private and state sectors including Malvern St James School for Girls, Malvern College and The Chase High School. From its commanding position on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills, Mulberry House has a wonderful outlook across adjacent open countryside towards the Severn Valley in the far distance. The house itself enjoys a mature setting in imaginatively laid out garden and grounds. A particular feature of this setting are the many impressive trees and shrubs, many of which were probably planted over 100 years ago. From this convenient position there is nearby access not only into open countryside but also on to the network of paths that criss-cross the Malvern Hills themselves.

Mulberry House offers a rich history having been designed by renowned local architect Troyte Griffith in the 1920's, as well as playing host to Edward Elgar who taught piano lessons at the property. The house is set back from the road behind electric gates flanked by trees and shrubs giving a high level of privacy. It is set within 2.5 acres of manicured gardens offering unrivalled views across the adjacent countryside towards the Severn Valley and beyond. Within the generous grounds is a separate self contained one bedroom cottage ideal for multi generational living. The main house has been modernised by the current owners whilst sympathetically maintaining original character features. The accommodation is perfect for family living with master bedroom suite and three further en-suite bedrooms, plus office/fifth bedroom on the second floor, double glazing and gas central heating throughout. The driveway winds down to the property to the private car park with adequate parking for over a dozen vehicles. The driveway also leads to a carport at the front of the property with sensored lighting. The front door opens to
