An Interesting Opportunity To Purchase Two Self-Contained, Three Bedroomed Apartments. With Potential To Convert Into A Single Dwelling, Enjoying An Elevated Setting On The Upper Western Slopes Of The Malvern Hills With Views Across Herefordshire. Some Updating And Refurbishment Required. EPC "D"


The property enjoys a convenient position less than a mile from the well served and highly regarded village of Colwall, where there are a number of local amenities including a general stores, Colwall Park Hotel, a post office, cafe, pharmacy, butcher, village hall, primary school and church. The larger, historic and cultural spa town of Great Malvern is just over a mile distant. Here there are more comprehensive facilities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium.

Educational facilities are second to none at primary and secondary levels in both the state and private sectors, including two private preparatory schools in Colwall itself (The Elms and The Downs), Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School. Transport facilities are excellent. There are mainline railway stations in both Colwall and Great Malvern. Junction 2 of the M50 at nearby Ledbury, Junction 1 of the M50 at Upton upon Severn and Junction 7 of the M5 at Worcester, are all within easy commuting distance.

Enjoying as it does a quiet, elevated, hillside setting on the western slopes of the Malverns, the property has fine views over Herefordshire and close access onto the range of paths and bridleways that criss cross the hills themselves. It's a great spot for walkers.


The Manse and Kingsdown currently comprises two separate, self-contained, three bedroomed flats (one at ground level, the other at first floor level). Each requires some updating and refurbishment but both are offered with gas fired central heating and double glazed windows. Cavity wall insulation was installed in 2006. The Manse (on the first floor), also has its own area of garden.

Subject to planning permission and satisfying building regulations, it is also felt that the property offers potential for conversion into a single dwelling, thus making it an ideal family home.

Kingsdown (on the ground floor) does have high moisture readings in its rear wall (the back bedroom). This will require rectifying and buyers are advised to set aside a budget to carry out this task.

It should be noted that there is no private parking offered with the property and that the highway itself serving Kingsdown and The Manse is a restricted parking zone. To the front of the house a gated entrance leads onto a gravel pathway that passes in front of the ground floor flat (Kingsdown). This pathway is flanked by a raised, stone edged herbaceous and shrub border enclosed by railings. The pathway continues to the side of the building to a sheltered paved courtyard which is currently for the benefit of the Kingsdown apartment. Here also is an external tap and outside security lighting.
There is also a small undercroft store. Steps lead up to a raised platform enclosed by railings that provides direct access to the first floor apartment (The Manse). Here also is an external tap and outside lighting. From this point a stepped pathway leads up to the
main sloping rear garden. This path is flanked each side by a lawn and borders and a small vegetable/soft fruit area. Half way up there is a useful garden STORE of timber construction (electric power supply connected). At the end of the pathway at its highest point is a raised flagstone terrace/seating area, from which there are fine views
to the West across Herefordshire. Also at this point is a small SUMMERHOUSE. From here a gated exit leads directly onto the hills themselves.


We have been advised that mains services are connected to the property. Mains gas and electricity to both flats are on Smart meters. Cavity wall insulation was installed in 2006. This information has not been checked with the respective service providers and interested parties may wish to make their own enquiries with the relevant local authority. No statement relating to services or appliances should be taken to infer that such items are in satisfactory working order and intending occupiers are advised to satisfy themselves where necessary.


From Great Malvern proceed South along the A449 Wells Road. After only a few hundred yards, bear right onto Wyche Road (signed Colwall and The Wyche Cutting). Follow this route for some distance uphill and through the Wyche Cutting passing into Herefordshire. Almost immediately fork left into Jubilee Drive where the property will be seen on the left hand side. It should be noted that parking is restricted outside the property.
