Location & Description:
April House enjoys a convenient location less than two miles from the centre of the well served cultural spa town of Great Malvern where there is a comprehensive range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. The highly regarded village of Colwall is only a mile distant. Here there are further facilities including a local shop and Post Office, grocers, library, Doctors surgery, church and cricket club. Transport communications are excellent. There are mainline railway stations in both Colwall and in Great Malvern as well as junctions with the M5 and M50 motorways at Worcester, Upton upon Severn and Ledbury all of which are within easy driving distance.
The property enjoys a sheltered woodland setting on the western slopes of the Malvern Hills in an area of outstanding natural beauty and surrounded by ground managed and protected by Malvern Hills Conservators. This quiet almost undiscovered spot has hardly changed over the years and is part of a small enclave of 1930's designed homes, many of which were constructed by a renowned local builder Ronald James. From its elevated position April House commands a wonderful westerly aspect across ancient woodland and the rolling countryside of Herefordshire towards the Black Mountains in the far distance.
The immediate area is perfect for those who enjoy outdoor life as there is direct access to a network of paths and bridleways that criss-cross the hills and to natural springs supplying the renowned Malvern waters. For anyone looking for local culture there is always Malvern Theatre and its adjacent 11th century Priory.
The property itself comprises a traditional detached 1930's house. It requires some updating and improvement but offers enormous scope for extension and transformation into a fine home. Its generous and flexible accommodation includes a porch, hall, a large sitting room, study, kitchen with separate breakfast room, cloakroom with WC, dining room, utility room, four bedrooms (one with its own balcony and en-suite shower room) and two bathrooms. There is also a double garage and a good size mature garden.
