Ivy Mount Cottage is a very distinctive and individual detached house that is believed to date back well over 100 years but which may have its origins further back in history. From its elevated position on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills it enjoys fine views over the rooftops of the town towards the Severn Valley in the distance. Over the years the house has been improved upon and maintained and offers well presented family accommodation with gas fired central heating and double glazing. It is approached off St Ann's Road via two gated entrances and a short pathway that serves the cottage itself and a neighbouring property. The second gate opens into its courtyard garden and to a large conservatory that leads to the main ground floor accommodation consisting of a dining hall, sitting room, a well equipped and contemporary kitchen/breakfast room and a utility/garden room. A separate inner hall (off the main dining hall) has two short staircases, one of which leads down to the lower ground floor and the second to the main bedroom accommodation on the first floor. At lower ground floor level is a self-contained suite comprising bedroom 4 that can double as a study with its own en-suite bathroom. The main staircase leading to the first floor opens onto a landing, off which is the main family bathroom. A further stairwell leads to a galleried landing and to the three principal bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite bathroom.
