Location & Description:
Fairview 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.
Fairview is a traditional single storey detached bungalow dating back to the 1960's. In recent years a number of improvements have been carried out including the installation of a new gas fired combination boiler serving the central heating and hot water systems. This, added to double glazed windows, cavity wall and roof insulation and a new consumer unit have all combined to reduce energy levels thus ensuring an efficient and warm home. Other improvements include the fitting of new carpets, re-decoration and the installation of a contemporary suite in the shower room. The well organised accommodation includes a spacious reception hall, a large 21ft lounge/dining room (with triple aspect), a fitted kitchen/breakfast room, two bedrooms and the shower room with WC.
There is obvious potential to extend or increase the floor area of Fairview, either externally (perhaps involving the adaptation or replacement of the garage) or alternatively by the conversion of the generous roof space which was the subject of a successful application to create a new loft bedroom and en-suite some years ago. This consent has since lapsed but clearly there is scope to have it renewed.
One of the great strengths of Fairview is its setting in a small but thoughtfully landscaped mature and colourful garden. This particularly to the rear is private with seating areas designed to capture a view of the Malvern Hills (notably The Beacon) and the late afternoon sunshine.
Within the curtilage there is a detached garage, a useful garden shed and a wide driveway capable of accommodating a number of vehicles.
A generous hall approached via a glazed front door. Central heating thermostat, radiator, telephone point and access to roof space.

A gated pathway to the side of the house which is flanked by a series of attractive, colourful and mature shrubs and climbers leads into the extremely private rear garden. This has been thoughtfully laid out to create interest throughout the year with a small level lawn edged by well stocked shrub, rose and herbaceous borders and enclosed by fenced and walled boundaries that support further colourful climbers. A recently re-laid Cotswold stone patio provides a sheltered seating area designed not only to catch the afternoon sunshine but also to ensure a view of the Malvern Hills (notably The Beacon). To one side of the property and behind the garage is a large garden SHED of timber construction 9' x 7' with window, workbench and cupboard.
