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 16 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 16 which has access through the main ground floor entrance into the building although it can also be approached via either a staircase or lift directly from the car park.
The apartment itself is on the top floor and is well presented with double glazed windows, fitted carpets, electric radiators and a range of fitted wardrobes and cupboards. Its focal point is undoubtedly the very large lounge/dining room. This has a particularly high ceiling which, combined with four double glazed windows overlooking the Malvern Hills and an open plan layout to the well equipped kitchen, enhances its sense of space. The kitchen itself has a number of additional accessories including a HOB, OVEN, extractor canopy, WASHER DRYER and FRIDGE FREEZER. There are two bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite shower room and there is a separate family bathroom.
The apartment also has a double length tandem garage which is a rare bonus for town centre flats. There is room for an additional vehicle in front of the garage and the apartment has shared use of the communal grounds. The lift serves all floors at Scotland House including Apartment 16.
Approached via either the lift or two stairwells which lead from the main ground floor entrance off Cowleigh Road and from the car park at the rear of the building.
