Location & Description

The property stands on the edge of common land less than a mile from the busy and well served neighbourhood of Barnards Green where there is a wide range of amenities including a Coop store, several shops and takeaways. Just over a mile away is the cultural and historic town of Great Malvern where there is an even more comprehensive choice of facilities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. The property is within the catchment area of some of the best schools in the region in both the private and state sectors and at primary and secondary levels. Transport communications are excellent. A regular bus service runs through the area and Great Malvern railway station is just over a mile away. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester and Junction 1 of the M50 south of Upton upon Severn are both within easy commuting distance.

1 Church Down Road is an interesting detached two storey dwelling, originally constructed in the 1960's and extended in more recent times. It offer generous accommodation (over 1700 sq ft) which does require significant refurbishment and updating. A recent survey also revealed that some structural repairs are required. Reports and estimates for this work can be provided by the selling agent. For those looking for a project or a house to reshape this is a perfect opportunity. There is also potential to extend. On the ground floor a porch opens into a reception hall, off which there is a living room, a large kitchen/breakfast room, a study, dining room, shower room, utility room and rear lobby. At first floor level there are three double bedrooms, a bathroom and separate shower room. The house has gas fired central heating and an oil fired Aga. Undoubtedly, one of the great strengths of 1 Church Down Road is its setting in a larger than average, very private, mature garden. Within the curtilage are two driveways both of which provide extensive off road parking and one of which leads directly to a double garage. On the roof of this garage are solar panels. Ground Floor

The property enjoys two separate approaches, the first of which is to the front via a brick pillared and gated entrance onto a tarmac driveway that provides a turning area and parking for vehicles. This driveway is flanked by mature shrubs and trees and leads directly to a level lawn encircled by rose and shrub borders, trees and climbers including Rhododendron, Clematis and Silver Birch. Steps and pathways lead to the side of the house and to a further lawned area with more well established shrubs and trees. Here also a gated entrance opens into the private rear garden which is laid to lawn and a paved patio with a Pergola and a number of well established shrubs including a particularly impressive Magnolia. Access from both the driveway and the rear garden leads into an area of rough ground/orchard where there is a garden STORE of timber construction, the OIL TANK (serving the Aga) and two Apple trees. A second tarmac driveway leads off Church Down Road to a

Double Garage
