Location & Description:
Salford Lodge enjoys a convenient position in Avenue Road, one of Great Malvern's premier streets which boasts some particularly fine homes along its length. The property is within walking distance of a comprehensive choice of amenities. Barnards Green is less than two minutes away on foot. Here there are shops and banks and a Co-op supermarket. The wider facilities of Great Malvern are only half a mile away. Here there is a more comprehensive choice of shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, Manor Park Tennis and Sports Centre, the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium and of course the renowned theatre and cinema complex and its adjacent Winter Gardens, all of which are within walking distance.

The immediate area is within the catchment of some of the best schools such as The Chase Secondary School, Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls School which is actually located in Avenue Road itself. Transport communications are also ideal. Great Malvern railway station is only a few minutes walk away. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester and Junction 1 of the M50 south of Upton upon Severn are both within easy striking distance.

Salford Lodge itself dates back to 1898 and is a fine example of a well engineered and designed detached Victorian house. The three storey accommodation retains a number of original period features including internal doors (and door furniture), sash windows, cornicing to ceilings, some floor coverings, fireplaces and even the original bell system that once connected to the servants quarters. However, despite the retention of these features the house is very much a contemporary home that has been the subject of refurbishment and updating over the years. The property is extremely versatile and its generous floor area is not only capable of catering for a large growing and very active family but equally could meet the demands of two family use or provide quarters for guests or elderly relatives. It is worth noting however that the accommodation does not ramble and is therefore much easier to maintain than many houses of this calibre. External redecoration to the house has recent been carried out.

On the ground floor an enclosed entrance porch leads into an elegant and spacious reception hall, off which doors lead to a study/family room, a dining room, sitting room, cloakroom with WC and the kitchen/breakfast room. From here a door also leads to a good size utility room off which there is a large walk in larder and a passageway servicing two excellent storage rooms. It is worth noting that this house boasts generous facilities for storage. Also off the ground floor steps lead under the stairs to an excellent cellar that can double as a playroom. An elegant staircase leads to the large landing and the first floor, off which there are four bedrooms, one of which has a newly equipped en-suite shower room. Here also there is the family bathroom and a separate WC. A further flight of stairs leads to the second floor and to another large landing serving two more bedrooms, a very useful attic room and a large shower room.

The full picture is completed outside where the house enjoys a delightful setting in a good sized level garden. This is mature but easy to maintain. It is also fully enclosed by a mixture of hedging, Malvern stone walls and fencing. The house enjoys an attractive pillared approach opening on to a long tarmac driveway that provides parking for several vehicles and leads to the large detached double garage.
