Location & Description
High View occupies a delightful elevated position in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the upper slopes of the Malvern Hills, almost equidistant from both Malvern and Ledbury, both of which are approximately three miles away. In Great Malvern 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. These facilities are equally well matched in Ledbury and the house is well placed for fast access to a comprehensive transport network including junctions 1 and 2 of the M50 at Upton and Ledbury respectively and junction 7 of the M5 south of Worcester. There are also mainline railway stations in the very well served nearby village of Colwall (approximately two miles), Great Malvern and Ledbury. Educational needs are well catered for in both the state and private systems at primary and secondary levels, including two preparatory schools in Colwall (The Elms and The Downs), several highly regarded secondary schools and Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School. The property is on the doorstep of the network of paths and bridleways that criss cross the Malvern Hills and is less than half a mile from British Camp and its nearby hotel and restaurant. This is the perfect spot for those who enjoy outdoor life and for dog walkers.
Believed to date back to 1890, High View was originally built as part of a Finishing Girls School. In the early 1900's, the property was redeveloped into a family home and has been in the ownership of the current vendors for nearly 30 years. In need of some updating, the property has many fine features and offers a fantastic opportunity to become a modern contemporary home. Offering characterful accommodation with generously proportioned rooms, the property is arranged on the ground floor with an entrance porch, utility room, 30 ft long conservatory, breakfast room with adjoining kitchen, dining room, shower room and triple aspect drawing room. On the first floor a landing leads to the master bedroom with fitted wardrobes, three further bedrooms, dressing room and family bathroom. There is external access to a lower ground floor where there is a cellar and store room. Outside, High View is approached by a tarmacadam driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles and in turn leads to a DETACHED SINGLE GARAGE. The grounds belonging to High View are delightful and comprise a terraced garden mainly laid to lawn with mature planting and some magnificent trees. There is also a large area of woodland. The grounds in total extend to approximately ONE AND A HALF ACRES. Offered with no onward chain the agent's highly recommend an early inspection inspection.
