Location & Description:
8 Westminster Road enjoys a convenient location only a mile from the centre of the historic and cultural spa town of Great Malvern where there is a fine range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Transport communications are well catered for. There is a mainline railway station in Great Malvern itself less than 2 miles away. Junction 1 of the M50 motorway at Upton and Junction 7 of the M5 at Worcester are both about 9 miles distant. The house also falls within the catchment area of some of the best educational facilities in the area, notably the Wyche primary and Chase secondary schools and is within a few minutes' drive of Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School. For those who enjoy the outdoor life or simply walking the dog this is the perfect spot. Peachfield Common is about 10 minutes away on foot and the network of bridleways and footpaths that criss-cross the Malvern Hills are on the doorstep. The Worcestershire Golf Club is just over half a mile away.
Westminster Road is part of a very close knit community. It is a very quiet residential street dominated by traditional Victorian homes, the majority of which are restricted to the west side of the road. Located as it is on the upper slopes of the hills the street has a wonderful aspect across the Severn Valley below and number 8 is no exception. From most of the principle rooms and from strategic points in the garden, there are views across the outskirts of Malvern towards Bredon, The Cotswolds and the unspoilt countryside of Worcestershire below. The road is part of Malvern's conservation area.
Originally constructed in the 1860's as a pair of cottages, the property is now a classic detached Victorian house. Although it has clearly been the subject of improvement, refurbishment and extension over many years it does still retain some of its period features. These combine well with more contemporary improvements including a redesigned and well equipped kitchen, gas fired central heating and particularly attractive Mexican terracotta tiled flooring which runs throughout most of the ground floor.
The generous accommodation is both flexible and versatile. It enjoys an attractive entrance into a large reception hall off which doors lead to a particularly generous sitting room (with south and east facing sash windows providing plenty of light and a wonderful view across the valley), a well thought out and contemporary open plan kitchen and dining room, a small laundry/pantry, cloakroom with WC and a separate study that can, when necessary, provide a small fourth bedroom. On the first floor a landing leads to three good sized bedrooms (which either enjoy views across the Severn Valley or towards the hills) a family bathroom and a separate shower room.
The house has a mature hillside garden extending to almost a third of an acre, with a variety of well stocked borders, shrubs, trees, spring bulbs and level areas set aside for seating from which one can admire the views across the Severn Valley. Immediately adjacent to the kitchen there is a particularly sheltered level seating area which catches the morning sun and is ideal for outside dining. Next to the house there is a detached garage.
Immediately opposite the property on the other side of Westminster Road a gated pathway leads down to a large studio and to a separate wooded garden. This belongs to the property and with its south and east facing aspect provides a quiet and sheltered retreat.

Immediately adjacent to the property there is a detached GARAGE (14'5" x 11'). To the side of this garage a set of steps lead up to a paved path. This passes behind the garage to a small covered and enclosed storage area, beyond which more steps lead directly into the rear garden. Also off this same pathway a second gated and hedged path passes immediately in front of the house into a small but lovely sheltered raised garden. This is laid to lawn with a brick and paved seating area, two small borders and is enclosed by hedging. From this elevated spot it not only enjoys views across the Severn Valley but also leads directly to the Dining Room making the perfect area for outside dining. Adjacent to this garden is a small integral STORES which houses the boiler and has room for a single appliance. The southern facade of the house supports a fine Wisteria. Here also there is a mature Rose and Clematis. Steps flanked to each side by areas of lawn, shrubs and Malvern stone lead to the rear of the house. Off these steps there is a short grass path leading to Bedroom 3. The rear hillside garden consists of a series of stepped pathways, terraced grassed areas and borders containing ground cover, spring bulbs, mature roses, shrubs, Malvern stone retaining walls and rockeries, vegetable planters, hedged and Malvern stone boundary walls and several mature trees (including Poplar, Conifer, fruit, etc). At strategic points there are more level spots from which one can sit out and admire the view.
Immediately opposite the house and approached from the eastern side of Westminster Road a gated pathway leads down to a large area of wooded garden. This provides a sheltered retreat not only for the occupants of 8 Westminster Road but also for local wildlife. It consists of a series of natural pathways, trees of many varieties, spring bulbs and shrubs (including Rhododendrons, Camellia and Magnolia). Within this wooded area a set of timber steps lead down to a south facing decked seating area from which a set of glazed doors lead into a large STUDIO (19' x 14'8" maximum height 12'5").
