A Potential Investment Opportunity. An Elegant Four Storey Detached Victorian House Located In Arguably Great Malvern's Prime Residential Area Offering An Approximate 5,541 Square Feet Of Accommodation And Currently Divided Into Twelve Flats With A Mature Garden And Generous Off Road Parking.
Location & Description
21 Priory Road enjoys a private setting in arguably Great Malvern's prime residential area, less than quarter of a mile from the centre of town and therefore within walking distance of a full 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. There is a mainline railway station only a few minutes walk away. Junction 7 of the M5 and Junction 1 of the M50 motorways at Worcester and Upton are both within easy commuting distance. Educational needs are second to none in both the state and private systems and at primary and secondary levels. The elegant grounds of Malvern College are virtually on the doorstep. Malvern St James Girls School is only a few minutes away on foot and The Chase secondary is less than half a mile away.
21 Priory Road is an elegant, detached residence, originally constructed in the late 1800s to a classic Victorian design of brick under a slate roof with single glazed, sliding, sash windows. The house was converted some years ago into twelve apartments/flats on four floors. It retains many of its original features including ornate cornicing, tiled floors and fireplaces. The accommodation is generous, extending to an approximate 5,541 square feet (515 sq m). Up until very recently all twelve flats were occupied on shorthold tenancies but with the knowledge that the vendors were intending to sell the building, some of these have been allowed to lapse and are now therefore vacant. At its peak 21 Priory Road is capable of generating a handsome income of approximately £70,500 per annum. Given its premier location, however, the property is clearly a prime target for conversion back into a single dwelling. Though this would be a significant project, there is no doubt that it would make a very fine family home in a private setting with a mature garden and off road parking. There is also potential to develop the property to the rear. The property is approached via a double pillared entrance onto a tarmac driveway capable of accommodating a number of vehicles. This driveway also leads to the south side of the building into the main rear garden. It should be noted that this section of the driveway is in need of repair and maintenance and is not currently in regular use. The rear garden itself is laid to lawn with a number of very mature and significant trees and shrubs lending it considerable privacy.
We have been advised that mains services are connected to the property. A new fire alarm system was installed in 2021. There are two gas fired boilers serving the building, one at lower ground floor level and the second on the first floor. All flats have radiators apart from one, which has electric heating. Each apartment has its own electric meter and fuse board. Most also have an EICR dating from 2021. These have all been certified. This information has not been checked with the respective service providers and interested parties may wish to make their own enquiries with the relevant local authority. No statement relating to services or appliances should be taken to infer that such items are in satisfactory working order and intending occupiers are advised to satisfy themselves where necessary.
Intending purchasers will be required to produce identification documentation and proof of funding in order to comply with The Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds Regulations 2017. More information can be made available upon request. John Goodwin FRICS has made every effort to ensure that measurements and particulars are accurate however prospective purchasers/tenants must satisfy themselves by inspection or otherwise as to the accuracy of the information provided. No information with regard to planning use, structural integrity, tenure, availability/operation, business rates, services or appliances has been formerly verified and therefore prospective purchasers/tenants are requested to seek validation of all such matters prior to submitting a formal or informal intention to purchase/lease the property or enter into any contract.
We are advised (subject to legal confirmation) that the property is freehold.

Energy Performance Certificate
