Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Location & Description:
An attractive substantial detached property with large garden to the rear, garage and car parking, situated in a prime location within the centre of the village of Colwall.

York House was constructed in 1905 and offers beautifully presented, individual and spacious gas centrally heated and double glazed accommodation. For many years the front of the property was used as a haberdasher, and more recently as a B&B, and would lend itself to part commercial use again, subject to any necessary consents. The current owners have undertaken a very comprehensive scheme of upgrading, and the layout of the accommodation could be adapted to create an annexe. It briefly comprises reception hall and main hall, three reception rooms, kitchen, bedroom 6/study with en suite bathroom on the ground floor. On the first floor is a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, four further bedrooms (one of which has an en suite shower room) and family bathroom. There is an excellent attic accessed by a loft ladder and a large cellar. Parking is provided at the front and side of the property and there is a double garage. The large rear garden extends to over 200 feet by 50 feet and there are superb views from the garden and rear windows to the Malvern Hills.

Colwall is a much sought after village set at the foot of the western slopes of the Malvern Hills and offers a good range of local facilities including a Post Office, general store, butcher, chemist, primary and prep schools, doctor's surgery, churches, hotel, public houses and a mainline railway station with services to Hereford, Worcester, Birmingham New Street, Oxford and London Paddington. The town of Ledbury is approximately 4 miles and Great Malvern approximately 2 miles, both of which offer a wide range of local facilities and amenities and are easily accessible by road, rail or bus.
