Location & Description:
Jessamine Cottage enjoys a convenient position approximately three miles south 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. There is a local Spar store and service station less than a mile away. Transport communications are well catered for. There is a mainline railway station at Great Malvern. Junction 1 of the M50 at Upton and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester are both about ten miles away. The area is well served by an excellent choice of schools at primary and secondary levels and in both the state and private systems including the Wyche and Wells Primary, The Chase Secondary, Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls School. The Worcestershire Golf Club is less than a mile away.
Situated on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills, Jessamine Cottage enjoys a lovely private setting in a large south facing garden bordered by woodland. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with numerous mature shrubs and trees and includes an additional area of ground set aside as orchard. The grounds extend to just over half an acre and enjoy a westerly aspect towards the Malvern Hills in the distance. Within the curtilage there is off road parking for several vehicles and two separate garages.
The property itself is a classic detached cottage which is believed to date back to the 19th century. The majority of its generous accommodation is on the ground floor but it should be noted by potential buyers that this is probably not a house that is suitable for the retired or for buyers who find it difficult to cope with stairs as there are two separate stairwells leading to the first floor bedrooms. The cottage will undoubtedly benefit from some further investment and improvement and offers enormous potential for extension or for conversion into a very fine family home.
