The Belvedere is an imposing Grade II Listed detached Regency residence nestling on the upper eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills, enjoying uninterrupted long distance views over the Severn Valley towards Bredon and The Cotswolds.

The house was once the principal residence within The Belvedere Estate, owned and occupied by Miss Eliza Warrington between 1850 and 1901. She also provided the local community with the facilities for the Malvern Wells Primary School together with playing a major part in the creation of the Worcester Blind College. Sir Edward Elgar was welcomed as a visitor to her home.

The Belvedere is located in the highly regarded residential area of Malvern Wells, with easy access to the comprehensive amenities and facilities in Great Malvern which offers a wide range of shops, restaurants, banks and Post Office together with Waitrose supermarket. Malvern is also renowned for its theatre and cinema complex, Splash leisure pool and gymnasium, Manor Park Tennis Club and the Worcestershire Golf Club. It is also served by two private schools, Malvern College and Malvern St James as well as local prep schools. The property falls within the catchment area of the Chase Secondary School and a number of well respected primary schools. The town centre is well placed for connection to local transport with Great Malvern railway station providing links to London Paddington, Cardiff and South Wales, the South West, Birmingham and The Midlands.

The property exudes great elegance and character and retains many original features including well proportioned reception rooms, high corniced ceilings, deep skirtings and sash windows, many with folding shutters.

The present owners have spent a considerable amount of time and expense restoring the property to some of its former glory. Houses of this quality rarely come to the market and the agents strongly recommend an early inspection to appreciate its grandeur being approached via a sweeping “in and out” driveway.
