Location & Description:
19 Park View is situated within five minutes walk of the centre of Malvern and a fine range of local amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium and Manor Park Sports Centre. The property is less than three hundred yards from the cultural centre of the town including the renowned theatre and cinema complex, the Priory Park and the Priory. It is generally accepted that Park View enjoys a prime position in one of Great Malvern's premier residential locations.
For those requiring good transport communications the property is only a short distance from Great Malvern railway station. Junction 7 of the M5 Motorway at Worcester is about eight miles away and Junction 1 of the M50 at Upton upon Severn is only ten miles distant.
Number 19 is situated at first floor level and is accessed by either a lift or stairs via a communal entrance off Abbey Road. It is part of an elegant Grade II listed building which was Britain's first, purpose built water cure establishment. Latterly it became one of the town's most prominent hotels and was converted into apartments and maisonettes in 1983. In recent years the building has been redecorated externally and the roof has been overhauled. The apartment was also refurbished and decorated and has the added benefit of gas fired central heating.
The accommodation includes a small entrance lobby and reception hall leading to the main focal point of the apartment which is a particularly striking drawing room with a most impressive bay window that enjoys a view across the elegant communal grounds below towards the Severn Valley in the far distance. There is also a large beautifully equipped kitchen/breakfast room (with a range of additional accessories), two bedrooms, one of which has its own contemporary en-suite shower room. There is also a separate re-quipped bathroom. The apartment also has fitted carpets as well as strategically placed TV and telephone points and dimmer switches.
The views from the drawing room are undoubtedly a real bonus. This east facing aspect over the grounds stretches across Priory Park and Worcestershire towards the Severn Valley.
The residents of Park View have access to the beautifully laid out communal gardens which are set to level lawns with mature flower borders and a variety of well established trees and shrubs. They are for the benefit of all the residents and enjoy a fine view of the hills and the adjacent Priory. The Priory can also be seen from the drawing room and from the kitchen. Apartment 19 has its own allocated parking space.
Approached off Abbey Road via a private gated entrance.
