Location & Description:
Copper Beech House is situated in one of Great Malvern's premier locations only about ten minutes walk from the town centre and therefore within immediate reach of a fine range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex, The Winter Gardens and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. The house is even closer to the bustling centre of Barnard's Green which is less than five minutes away on foot. Here there are further amenities including Co-op supermarket, bank, Post Office, shops and the highly regarded Chase School, the catchment area within which the property falls. Great Malvern also has a deserved reputation for the quality of its private schooling notably Malvern College and the renowned Malvern St James Girls College, the elegant main buildings of which are also in Avenue Road only a minute or two away on foot. Great Malvern railway station is only about two minutes walk away and provides links to Hereford, Worcester, The Midlands and London Paddington. The full range of the Malvern Hills themselves are approximately a mile distant. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about nine miles and Junction 1 of the M50 at Upton upon Severn is a similar distance.
Copper Beech House was built during the last years of the 19th Century and is a fine example of Victorian architecture. The impressive three storey accommodation retains many of its original features, notably internal joinery such as picture rails, staircases, skirtings, doors and sash windows. In addition there a number of attractive fireplaces and elaborate cornicing to many of the ceilings.
The large floor area of the house lends itself well to alternative uses. It will make a fine family house but at the same time, as at present, it is the perfect choice for commercial or business ventures, notably guest house or Bed and Breakfast use, the latter of which currently generates a very profitable income. Undoubtedly one of the great strengths of this elegant residence is its position, approached as it is along a mature tree lined avenue and set in an attractively landscaped south facing garden with lovely views of Great Malvern towards the hills in the distance.
The property is arranged on three floors with an impressive central staircase. This is approached at ground floor level via an attractive vestibule and spacious entrance hall leading to a cloakroom with WC, a dining room, covered verandah, lounge, sitting room, office, day room, wet room, laundry room and a kitchen/breakfast room with a large walk in larder. At first floor level there are seven bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities. The second floor has been converted to provide further accommodation including an en-suite bedroom and two further bedrooms and a shower room. Internally accessed cellars with power and lighting.
The property has a gas fired central heating system serving the ground and first floors from a boiler installed in 2004 (the master bedroom has an independent hot water supply). The second floor has its own independent central heating and hot water system from a boiler installed in 2011. There are Digital TV points and wireless connections in the bedrooms and two of the reception rooms, as well as telephone points which are strategically placed around the house. The property has fitted carpets, some of which are nearly new.

The property is approached via a stone pillared and gated entrance that opens onto a wide tarmac driveway capable of accommodating a large number of vehicles and edged with stocked shrub borders, mature trees and Malvern stone boundary walls. There is a separate pedestrian gate leading onto Avenue Road. The front and side facades of the house are adorned with mature climbers and there is external lighting. A gated access leads on each side to the house to the delightful south facing rear garden which is principally laid to lawn on two levels and edged by a variety of well stocked and colourful shrub and herbaceous borders with rockeries, mature trees, ground cover plants, spring bulbs and a network of gravel pathways all enclosed by Malvern stone and brick boundary walls. The rear facade of the house is again adorned with mature climbers. Trellising separates the main lawned garden from a lovely sheltered flagstone patio which is a perfect suntrap and well enclosed by the mature climbers that the aforementioned trellising supports. It is also enclosed by a Malvern stone wall and attractive trees. The house has an external tap and lighting. Under the verandah there is a second CELLAR about 12' x 8' with light and power connected. GREENHOUSE, GAZEBO
