Full description

A unique development opportunity to replace or refurbish/extend a detached house in an elevated position with outstanding views over the Severn Valley and along the Malvern Hills. The property is a three bedroom detached house in need of refurbishment situated in a plot of just under a quarter of an acre. Architects acting for the owners have undergone a pre-planning application with Malvern Hills Planning Department and received a positive response to the replacement of the property with a high specification four bedroom detached home taking full advantage of the elevated location and views. The property is being sold by informal tender inviting offers in writing by noon on Thursday 10th November.

Situation - This is a rare opportunity to purchase one of the highest properties situated on the Malvern Hills. Its elevated position sits just below the ridgeline and there is direct access from the site onto the Malvern Hills. The site extends to just under a quarter of an acre. There is a wide parking area to the front which leads onto the garden which then widens and extends downhill. From the site there are panoramic views to the East looking over the Severn Valley to Bredon Hill and the Cotswold escarpment. To the south there are views running along the Malvern Hills ridgeline to Perseverance Hill.

Potential - The existing owners submitted a pre-planning application to Malvern Hills District Council ref: c/13/00288/PA. This allowed for the demolision of the existing dwelling and replacement with a new one - "The existing dwelling is well screened and only visible from one neighbouring site. Its landscaped setting is its biggest contribution to the Malvern Wells Conservation Area and I have no concerns with the demolition of the dwelling, subject to securing the erection of a replacement dwelling following its demolition". Plans were also drawn up for the extension of the existing dwelling. Plans for both schemes and also the pre-planning application response are available within the Great Malvern Office as both hard and electronic copies if required.
