Location & Description

The property is also handily placed for some of the best schools in the region including Malvern Wells and Wyche Primary, the Chase Secondary and in the private sector Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls School.
The property is a beautifully presented second floor apartment, one of eight in an elegant Grade II Listed, four storey building which is situated in an elevated spot on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills. It enjoys easy access on to the network of paths and bridleways that criss-cross the hills and from its commanding position it has wonderful views to the east across the Severn Valley towards The Cotswolds and Bredon in the far distance and to the west towards the hills themselves. Apartment 8 being on the top floor is particularly well placed to exploit this fabulous view.
The apartment includes a newly fitted Ferroli combination boiler (May 2015) and the installation of secondary glazing (April 2015) throughout, both of which carry long manufacturer guarantees. Steps have also been taken to improve the number of wall sockets in the living room and there is also the additional benefit of individual lamp sockets in strategic places throughout the apartment. The apartment also offers a long reception hall, living room (with bay window taking full advantage of the view over the Severn Valley), a well equipped kitchen/breakfast room, two good sized double bedrooms and a contemporary Victorian themed bathroom with shower and WC.
