A DISTINCTIVE AND VERY INTERESTING GRADE II LISTED DETACHED PERIOD HOUSE ENJOYING A LOVELY PRIVATE SETTING AND SOUTH FACING ASPECT WITH VIEWS OF THE HILLS AND ACROSS THE SEVERN VALLEY AND OFFERING FOUR BEDROOMED ACCOMMODATION WITH GAS FIRED CENTRAL HEATING, HALL, CLOAKROOM, SITTING ROOM, KITCHEN/DINING ROOM, BATHROOM, STOREROOM, UTILITY ROOM, WORKSHOP, STUDIO, OFF ROAD PARKING AND OUTBUILDINGS WITH POTENTIAL FOR CONVERSION TO PROVIDE FURTHER ACCOMMODATION OR GARAGING.

Location & Description:
The Yews enjoys a convenient position approximately two miles south of Great Malvern where there is a comprehensive range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. There is a local Spar stores and service station about ten minutes walk from the property.
Transport communications are well catered for. There is a mainline railway station in Great Malvern. Junction 1 of the M50 at Upton and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester are both within approximately ten miles.
The area is well served by an excellent choice of schools at primary and secondary levels and in both the state and private systems including The Wyche and Wells Primary, The Chase Secondary, Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls School. The Worcestershire Golf Club is less than a mile away.
Situated in an elevated position on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills the property enjoys a lovely private setting with a southerly aspect across its good size mature garden towards the hills in the west and across the treetops of Malvern Wells towards the Seven Valley in the east. A particular bonus is the easy access to the network of paths and bridleways that criss-cross the hills themselves.
The Yews is an interesting Grade II Listed detached period house with a long history that is believed to date back to the late 1700's. Over the years the property has clearly been extended and altered and has now evolved into a charming detached four bedroomed home which still retains some original architectural features, including the extensive use of oak, antique pine and elm to floors, staircases, brace and latch doors, wall and ceiling timbers as well as fireplaces and sash windows (some of which have been replaced in more recent years).
The accommodation includes a generous reception hall, cloakroom with WC, a charming sitting room (which was once two separate rooms but is now one much larger one with two fireplaces), a good size kitchen/dining room, four bedrooms and a bathroom with shower and WC.
Adjacent to the main dwelling there are three further buildings, the first of which is linked to the house by a large hall and currently contains a storeroom, utility room, studio and workshop. Subject to the necessary planning consents this part of the house could easily be converted to provide either an annexe or further accommodation. Adjacent to this there is a large detached chalet of timber construction.
However for those buyers who may be seeking a project then perhaps the most interesting aspect of The Yews is its former stables, a large stone building with direct access onto Holywell Road. This could be adapted to provide further accommodation or garaging (again subject to planning consent). Adjacent to this there is off road parking for two vehicles.

DIRECTIONS
The property can be accessed either off Wells Road or Holywell Road. The easiest route is to leave Malvern along the A449 Wells Road towards Ledbury. Follow this route for approximately two miles (passing the left turn to The Hanley's, Upton and Three Counties Showground) and the Texaco garage on your right hand side. Approximately quarter of a mile after the Texaco garage and opposite the International School you will notice a small pedestrian gate numbered 266. This is the entrance to the property. You can park opposite this gate on the Wells Road. Alternatively continue for a further quarter of a mile before forking sharply back to the right into Holywell Road. Continue along this route for about quarter of a mile where you will notice a large stone outbuilding on the right. Immediately before this there is a double parking space. This belongs to 266 Wells Road.
