Location & Description:
Scotland House enjoys a convenient position within walking distance of the centre of Great Malvern where there is a comprehensive range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket and the renowned theatre and cinema complex. Malvern Link is even closer at hand. Here there are further amenities as well as two service stations, Lidl and Co-operative supermarkets. Less than five minutes on foot are a number of local shops in Newtown Road. Transport communications are excellent. There is a mainline railway station less than five minutes away on foot. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about eight miles.
The building enjoys a semi-elevated setting on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills and has wonderful views across the Severn Valley. It is less than five minutes away on foot from both Malvern Link common and the network of bridleways and footpaths which criss-cross the hills themselves.
Scotland House was originally constructed about ten years ago and comprises seventeen one and two bedroomed apartments. Flat 10 is one of eleven that remain in the ownership of the current freeholder. He has now decided to sell four of these apartments including number 10 which has direct access through the main ground floor entrance into the building although it can also be approached at first floor level by either a staircase or lift directly from the car park.
The apartment itself is well presented and has the added bonus of double glazed windows, fitted carpets and electric radiators. It has more generous accommodation than one might expect for a one bedroomed home with a number of additional features that are worthy of mention including a lovely open plan kitchen and living room with a comprehensive range of integrated kitchen appliances, a large bathroom with shower and WC and a range of fitted wardrobes and cupboards in the hall and bedroom. It also has an allocated parking space and access to the well maintained communal garden. From its elevated position there are fine views across the Severn Valley from the bedroom and main living area.
