Location & Description

Tannachie enjoys a convenient position in the popular village of West Malvern 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 and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. 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.

Built in 1864, Tannachie was built for his retirement by a general in the Royal Artillery and was specifically designed to take advantage of its elevated position on the western slopes of the Malvern Hills to showcase its spectacular far reaching views across the rolling Herefordshire countryside towards the Welsh Borders. There are many noteworthy period features including large picture windows, double height ceilings with intricate cornicing to most of the principal rooms together with deep skirting boards, shutters, Minton tiled floors and original stone fireplaces. The accommodation is arranged on the ground floor with an entrance porch, large reception hall, cloakroom, snug with wood burning stove, formal dining room, elegant drawing room with a striking bay window and an adjoining garden room. An inner hall leads to a study and an open plan breakfast kitchen with a utility room, walk in pantry and a WC. From the inner hall there is access to an internal lift. On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to an impressive master bedroom with an en suite bathroom, which enjoys a delightful dual aspect overlooking the surrounding grounds and Herefordshire countryside beyond. There are two further double bedrooms and a separate shower room. A rear landing leads to three further bedrooms, separate WC and to an external bridge with access to the garden. Tannachie is approached by a right of access across land belonging to Malvern Hills Trust. A sweeping driveway leads to a generous area of parking with turning area and provides access to a DETACHED GARAGE (13'2" X 12'1") with power and light connected and a WORKSHOP (14'2" X 12'0"). The grounds belonging to Tannachie are spectacular, extending to approximately ONE AND ONE THIRD OF AN ACRE and have been attractively arranged to take full advantage of the elevated position and natural slope of the Malvern Hills. The grounds include a large lawn and a smaller flat lawn. Trees include magnificent redwoods many rhododendrons, plus magnolias, azaleas, eucryphias and Chilean lantern trees. Running right along the top of the garden and facing west, there is a stone wall under which is a deep herbaceous border. There is also a circular Victorian sunken garden. A striking terrace lies immediately adjacent to the rear of the property and serves as a spectacular viewing platform with breath taking panoramic views across the Herefordshire countryside and towards the Welsh Mountains. Gravelled pathways weave throughout the grounds and lead to an established vegetable garden with a number of raised beds and a productive fruit cage.
