Great Malvern has an excellent range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket and the renowned theatre and cinema complex as well as The Splash swimming pool and gymnasium. Upton is equally well served with an extensive range of independent shops, sub Post Office with banking facilities, supermarkets, several pubs, churches and the famous riverside marina. Transportation communications are good with the property having access to junction 1 of the M50 motorway approximately 6 miles distance, which links to the M5 motorway bringing the Midlands, South West and South Wales into an easy commute.

Acorn Cottage is a wonderfully located three bedroomed detached bungalow situated in open countryside and affording fine views. The property is set back behind a lawned foregarden and accessed via a pedestrian gate set into a fenced perimeter where a block paved pedestrian path leads past the shrubs, beds and lawn to the front door, positioned to the right hand side of the property. To the left hand side double vehicle gates open to the driveway allowing parking for vehicles and giving access to the car park and detached double garage. One of the key selling points of this property are the generous grounds which wrap around the property to all sides, but to the right hand side is a large paddock and in total the grounds extend to 1 acre and offer outbuildings. There is certainly the potential, subject to the relevant permissions being sought, for the original property to be extended or perhaps development of the paddock as it already has its own vehicular access but this is something the buyer would have to investigate after the sale has completed. The property itself is all on one level with the living accommodation benefitting from double glazing and central heating. However the property is in need of refurbishment and updating and gives any prospective buyer the chance to make the property their own.
