Location

The property is less than three hundred yards from the cultural centre of the town including the renowned theatre and cinema complex, the Priory Park and the Priory. It is generally accepted that Park View enjoys a prime position in one of Great Malvern's premier residential locations.

Description

Number 23 is situated at second floor level and is accessed by either a lift or stairs via a communal entrance off Abbey Road. It is part of an elegant Grade II Listed building which was Britain's first, purpose built water cure establishment. Latterly it became one of the town's most prominent hotels and was converted into apartments and maisonettes in 1983. In recent years the building has been redecorated externally and the roof has been overhauled.

The accommodation includes a small entrance lobby and reception hall leading to the main focal point of the apartment which is a particularly striking living room with a most impressive bay window that enjoys a view across the elegant communal grounds below towards the Severn Valley. There is also a large kitchen with views to Malvern Priory, two bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite shower room that has been subject to modernising. There is also a separate bathroom which has also been re-fitted. The apartment also has fitted carpets as well as strategically telephone points and dimmer switches.

The views from the living room are a real highlight. This east facing aspect over the grounds stretches across Priory Park and Worcestershire towards the Severn Valley.

The residents of Park View have access to the beautifully laid out communal gardens which are set to level lawns with mature flower borders and a variety of well established trees and shrubs. They are for the benefit of all the residents and enjoy a fine view of the hills and the adjacent Priory. Apartment 23 has its own allocated parking space.
