Location & Description

Rosedale enjoys a convenient position in the popular village of West Malvern and is within easy walking distance to the local primary school, village church, community orchard, The Brewers Arms village pub, village shop and café. West Malvern is approximately two and a half miles from the well served village of Colwall and about two miles from the cultural and historic spa town of Great Malvern where there is a comprehensive range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex, the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium and Malvern Spa. Transport communications are excellent. There are mainline railway stations in both Great Malvern and Colwall with services to Hereford, Worcester, Birmingham New Street, Oxford and most notably London Paddington within 2.5 hours. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about nine miles and junction 2 of the M50 near Ledbury is just over ten miles. The property is also well placed for access to some of the best schools in the region at both primary and secondary levels and in the private and state sectors including Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School and The Chase and Dyson Perrins as well as The Downs and Elms preparatory schools in Colwall and local St James Primary School.

Rosedale is a most unique and distinctive detached house occupying an enviable position on the western slopes of the Malvern Hills. Believed to originally date back to the 1850's, it is thought that the property was a former quarryman's cottage with a significant extension added in 1906 by local builder A G Lewis and a later addition in 2004. The property is a fine example of a family home offering much charm and character with exceptionally well presented accommodation throughout. The property is double glazed throughout with high quality wood sash windows and benefits from gas fired central heating. The accommodation is arranged at ground floor level with an entrance porch, entrance hall, large cloakroom, beautifully appointed L-shaped sitting room with an attractive sun room and wood burning stove, comprehensively fitted breakfast kitchen, formal dining room, study, useful back kitchen/utility room with Rayburn, WC with a shower and a workshop. On the first floor a galleried landing leads to the master bedroom with an en suite shower room, guest room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Undoubtedly, one of the great strengths of Rosedale is its setting. From its elevated position, the property enjoys panoramic views across the Herefordshire countryside towards Hay-On-Wye and the Welsh Mountains. For those who enjoy exploring the outdoors, the property is in the perfect spot within walking distance to the network of paths and bridleways that crisscross the Malvern Hills. Outside, the garden belonging to Rosedale surrounds the property on all sides and enjoys a sunny south west facing aspect. The garden has been meticulously cared for with lawned terraces, an attractive rockery, small orchard and several strategically positioned seating areas. The garden extends to approximately ONE THIRD OF AN ACRE. There is a detached DOUBLE GARAGE with a useful STORE ROOM above.
