Location & Description:
This is an ideal opportunity to purchase a charming character first floor apartment in a building situated on the upper western slopes of the Malvern Hills served by a bus route and being within approximately one and a half miles from the village of Colwall, which has local shops, inns, schools and a mainline railway station.

The centre of Great Malvern is about two miles distant and has a wider range of shops, post office, banks, building societies, restaurants and Waitrose supermarket. Malvern, as well as being famous for its range of hills, is also renowned for its theatre complex with concert hall and cinema, together with having sporting facilities of the Splash Leisure Centre and Manor Park sports club.

Transport communications are excellent with two mainline railway stations at both Malvern and Colwall providing access to Worcester, Birmingham, London Paddington, Hereford and South Wales. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about 8 miles distant and brings the Midlands and most parts of the country within a convenient commuting time.

Royal Well Court is a development of considerable character and history, having been formally constructed in 1905 for the production of Malvern water and then latterly as a brewery. The building was converted around 1998 into nine dwellings with six apartments in the tower building. Number 4 is a spacious and well proportioned apartment. Properties of this nature rarely come onto the market and the agent strongly recommends an early inspection to appreciate the size of its interior, its layout and of course its superb location where there is direct access close by straight onto the hills.
