Location & Description:
Thornridge enjoys a quiet position on the outskirts of the highly regarded village of Hanley Castle approximately five miles from Great Malvern and less than two miles from Upton upon Severn. The popular village of Hanley Castle is only a short walk away. The property is therefore within striking distance of an excellent range of amenities notably in Upton upon Severn where there are two small supermarkets, shops, several pubs, places to eat out, Doctors and Dentists surgeries and the famous riverside Marina. An even wider choice of shops and banks can be found in Malvern where there is also a Waitrose supermarket as well as the renowned theatre and cinema complex.
Transport communications are excellent. There are mainline railway stations at Malvern and the nearby city of Worcester which is just ten miles away. Junction 1 of the M50 motorway is only about four miles. Educational needs are well catered for with a choice of primary schools in the area and the well respected Hanley Castle Secondary School.
Originally built in the 1970's Thornridge enjoys a pleasant approach across a private driveway to a lovely secluded setting in a mature garden. It can accommodate parking for several vehicles and has the added bonus of a double garage.
The accommodation itself is generous, particularly on the ground floor where a vestibule leads to a spacious hall and to a lounge (with inglenook fireplace), a well equipped kitchen, separate breakfast room, dining room, a cloakroom with WC and a utility room. Also on this floor there is a small annexe capable of providing quarters for a live in relative or teenager. This includes a sitting room, a study area (which can double as a bedroom) and its own en-suite bathroom.
On the first floor an attractive galleried landing leads to three bedrooms and to a shower room with WC. The house has oil fired central heating serving radiators.
