Location & Description:
Carlton House enjoys a convenient location less than a mile from the centre of the historic town of Great Malvern where there is a fine range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex, the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium and Manor Park Tennis and Sports Centre. The well served neighbourhood of Malvern Link offers a further choice of local facilities and is only just over quarter of a mile distant. Transport communications are excellent. The property is only ten minutes walk from a mainline railway station and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about eight miles. Educational needs are equally well catered for as there are a number of highly regarded primary and secondary schools in the immediate vicinity in both the state and private sectors.
Malvern Link common is only a few minutes away on foot and the Malvern Hills are less than five minutes by car. Set on the lower slopes of the Malverns, Carlton House enjoys a private setting in its own mature south facing garden. From the upper floors of the property there are views across the rooftops of Malvern Link towards the hills in the distance.
Originally constructed during the early 1900's Carlton House is a prime example of the architecture of the period. A number of period features have been retained including cornicing to ceilings, sash windows, tessellated floor tiling in the porch, fireplaces and attractive internal joinery, notably to skirting boards, doors and architraves. External features include dressed stone and brick elevations and a pitched clay tiled roof all combining to give the house an elegant appearance.
The generous and flexible accommodation does require some updating. It is offered with gas fired central heating. On the ground floor an attractive entrance porch leads to a large reception hall off which are the main reception rooms including a lovely drawing room, dining room, study/morning room, family room, spacious kitchen/breakfast room and a separate utility/laundry room. On the first floor a long and bright landing leads to four good size bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite bathroom. There is also a separate family bathroom.
The mature garden has been designed to provide low maintenance with interest and colour throughout the year. It contains a number of mature shrubs, trees and borders mixed with gravel and paved seating areas and enclosed by Malvern Stone walls and high hedging to give it privacy. A gated driveway provides off road parking and leads to a garage.

The driveway is flanked to each side by borders and ground cover plants and is enclosed to the road by a low Malvern Stone wall. A path runs to one side of the garage leading into the rear garden. A separate pedestrian access, via a pillared and gated entrance, opens on to a flagstone path that leads to the main entrance porch. This path is flanked by raised stone edged borders with steps leading up to a lawned front garden enclosed by shrubs and flower borders containing established trees, ground cover, trellising and climbers. The lawn leads back to the main driveway and to the garage. The other side of the path is flanked by attractive trellising covered in mature and colourful climbers including honeysuckle and clematis. A gate leads through this trellised archway into the main garden.
This has been designed with low maintenance in mind, with a network of gravel and paved pathways providing seating areas from which one can sit out and admire the view of the hills. These paths are interspersed with borders containing well established shrubs and ground cover plants and roses. In one corner there is a metal trellis supporting a fine climbing rose. The garden itself is enclosed by established hedging, shrubs and trees all set within a Malvern Stone wall. Gravel pathways continue to the rear of the house where a similar theme has been adopted with pathways flanked by stocked borders, shrubs, trees, roses, rockeries and trellising supporting colourful climbers, of particular interest is a very rare Koelreuteria Tree. This area is also enclosed to the road by a Malvern stone wall and hedging. In one corner there is a small garden SHED. Stone steps provide a pathway to a private and sheltered courtyard which is enclosed by a shrub border and trellising. Immediately around the house itself are stone edged raised borders containing shrubs, ground cover and a variety of climbers on the faade of the building. At strategic points the house has external lighting and an outside tap.
