The Balconies is a wonderful example of a period detached property, modernised and developed to a high specification of craftmanship and finish throughout. The property has been sympathetically extended to create versatile and flexible accommodation not only in the main house but also in the outbuildings which include a four bay garage with potential for a holiday let over as it just needs a kitchen to be installed. The main house itself is over 4700 square feet and having an auxiliary wing which is currently used as accommodation for the main residence but could easily become a self-contained annexe for a dependant relative or family member. In the past this area has also been used as an architects office by the current owners. Approached via an 'in and out' driveway having a large gravel and tarmac area allowing for ample off road parking. The detached four bay garage is positioned away from the house with further parking and lawn to front with an external staircase rising to the Games room/holiday let which has Planning permission and is completed to provide holiday let accommodation except for the kitchen fittings. The main front lawn is flanked by a hedged perimeter interspersed with specimen trees. The hardwood front door set under a storm porch with pitched tiled roof opens to the accommodation which is in excess of 4700 sq. ft. The property holds a depth of character and charm, ideal for family living or those looking for multi-generational space. The Reception Hall is a welcoming and inviting area and benefits from a cloakroom. One of the key selling features of the property is the Living Dining Kitchen positioned to the rear of the property and being westerly facing enjoying views to the Malvern Hills. This is a wonderful open space divided into three main areas of the formal fitted Kitchen with a range of integrated appliances and breakfast bar island along with further space for a breakfast table and enjoying a wood burning stove. The tiled floor flows through into the garden room which is oak framed with a vaulted ceiling and beautiful bi-fold doors opening to a covered tiled verandah with Rill to the lawn and views beyond.

Supplementing the kitchen is a Utility Room with large cloaks cupboard and which seamlessly gives access to the southern wing of the property where there a two further Cloakrooms, Kitchenette, two additional Reception Rooms as well as a large double Bedroom space and further small Bedroom to the first floor. This area has planning permission as ancillary accommodation to the main house but would be a wonderful area for a teenager suite or for a dependant family member. It has in the past been used as office space although it does not currently have the necessary permissions for this use. There is independent access to the front driveway. The main house also benefits from cellarage with good head height leading from the dining room and housing the oil fired central heating boiler, being an excellent space for storage. In total the grounds of this property extend to approximately one acre with the majority being positioned to the rear and enjoying a westerly position. From the garden a covered verandah with floor uplighting leads to the main lawn area continuing to the southerly and westerly aspects of the house. The garden is meticulously maintained and planted to create a wonderful secluded environment boasting a wealth of colour and charm throughout the year through the well stocked herbaceous beds, interspersed with mature specimen trees. There is a further patio area to the southerly side of the house where the pleasantries of this fantastic setting can be enjoyed. The formal garden continues through a gate into the second part of the garden with another large lawn area and raised vegetable beds including a Greenhouse. Vehicular double gates lead to the road. At the top of the garden there is a delightful ornamental pond with water feature with an array of Lillies and water fall and flanked by specimen beds behind which is a paved patio area giving access to the Summer House which is of timber frame under a pitched tiled roof, with light and power, windows and a covered verandah offer a wonderful space from where to enjoy the pleasantries of the garden. Throughout the garden there are strategically placed light and power points. There is a collection of fruit trees and the whole garden is enclosed by a hedge and fenced perimeter.
