Location and Description:

St Eloy's enjoys a convenient location in Farley Road, a well established and highly regarded street which is less than five minutes on foot from the centre of the well served neighbourhood of Malvern Link where there is a comprehensive selection of amenities including shops and banks, Lidl and Co-op supermarkets, two service stations, takeaways and places to eat out. The larger town of Great Malvern is less than a mile away. Here there are further shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium.

Transport communications are excellent. Malvern Link railway station is only about ten minutes away on foot and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway near Worcester is about eight miles. The property also falls within the catchment area of a network of local schools in the state sector. A short distance away in Great Malvern there are two well known private schools, Malvern College and Malvern St James.

St Eloy's is an impressive detached Victorian house with a long and interesting history that in the past has combined both residential and business use. For many years and until quite recently it was a veterinary surgeons home and surgery. However now the property provides flexible and versatile accommodation with an adjoining one bedroomed annexe that can be combined (as at present) into a large single home or could provide separate self-contained quarters for guests or an elderly relative.

The house retains a number of its original Victorian features including quarry tiled flooring, stripped oak internal doors, cornicing to ceilings, sash windows and working fireplaces. More recent improvements include the installation of gas fired central heating as well as new and very contemporary suites in the cloakroom, shower rooms and bathroom.

St Eloy's stands in a large mature and mainly walled garden which combines low maintenance with reasonable privacy and a safe environment for young children making it the ideal family home.

The strength of the house is undoubtedly its versatility. It not only makes an excellent large family house but is equally adaptable into two family use or for those who need to work from home.
