Location & Description:
6 Firs Close enjoys a convenient position less than a mile from the centre of Great Malvern where there is a fine range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex, the splash leisure pool and gymnasium and Manor Park Sports and Tennis Centre. Transport communications are well catered for. Great Malvern railway station is less than a mile away. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester and Junction 1 of the M50 at Upton are both less ten miles distant. The house is within walking distance of Malvern and Peachfield commons and is less than a mile away from the network of paths and bridleways which criss-cross the Malvern Hills.

Firs Close is situated off College Grove which is generally accepted to be one of Great Malverns premier residential locations. It is less than five minutes walk from the grounds of Malvern College and to the rear enjoys views across The Lees, the College grounds and tennis courts towards the Severn Valley in the far distance. In the opposite direction there is also a view across the cul-de-sac to the Malvern Hills.

Originally built in the 1970's, 6 Firs Close is a traditional two storey detached family home. Apart from the installation of double glazed windows, very little improvement has been carried out since. The property therefore requires refurbishment and upgrading. It has a gas fired warm air central heating system (which will also require replacement).

On the ground floor an entrance porch opens into a large reception hall, off which there is a study (that can double as a fourth bedroom), a cloakroom with WC, a large lounge/dining room, a kitchen/breakfast room and a utility room. At first floor level a landing leads to three bedrooms and a bathroom with WC.

Outside a short driveway provides off road parking and leads to an attached garage. There is a mature landscaped garden which is on two levels. Externally accessed from the rear of the property there is a useful cellar/basement room.
