Location


The Old Vicarage enjoys a wonderful setting in the heart of unspoilt countryside on the outskirts of the popular village of Welland where there is a local shop and stores, church, village hall, playing fields and a highly regarded primary school. The busy riverside town of Upton upon Severn is only about three miles away. Here there are further amenities including shops, a supermarket, post office, medical centre, library, church and Hanley Castle secondary school. The larger cultural and historic town of Great Malvern is about four miles. This boasts a comprehensive range of facilities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. The cities of Worcester (twelve miles), Cheltenham and Gloucester (approximately nineteen miles), are also within commuting distance.

Transport communications are excellent. Junction 1 of the M50 near Upton is only about six miles and there are mainline railway stations in both Great Malvern and Worcester. Educational needs are well catered for, particularly in Malvern at both primary and secondary levels and in the state and private sectors including the renowned Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School.

The property is perfectly placed for anyone who enjoys the country life. The Malvern Hills are only about six miles away and the River Severn is even closer to hand. The boundaries of The Old Vicarage are adjacent to open countryside.

Description


The Old Vicarage, which carries a Grade II listing, is believed to date back as far as the early 1600s, although it was altered and extended in the 1700s. Its partial timber framing mainly cased in brick with two storey canted bay windows and three significant chimneys all under a pitched tiled roof, give the house an extremely attractive and distinctive appearance. The property has been in the ownership of a single family for two generations.

The Old Vicarage requires renovation and refurbishment. It retains a large number of its original features and will offer buyers a rare opportunity to stamp their own mark and to restore this lovely country residence into a very fine family home.

The elegance and long history of the property itself is more than matched by its quiet and sheltered setting in over two acres of lawned gardens, orchard and woodland. These present the perfect canvas for the keen gardener to create something special and for young children to explore and be entertained. Within the curtilage are outbuildings, the most noteworthy of which is a large three bay brick barn with pitched tiled roof that once doubled as a stables. This building could offer potential for conversion into alternative uses (subject of course to planning consent).

Services


We have been advised that mains electricity and water are connected to the property. Drainage is to a private septic tank. 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.

Directions


From Great Malvern proceed south along the A449 Wells Road towards Ledbury for just over three miles (passing a Texaco garage on your right hand side). Approximately a quarter of a mile after the Texaco garage in Little Malvern, fork left onto the A4104 (signed Upton upon Severn). Follow this route for a mile into the village of Welland. At a junction in the centre of the village turn right and then (by the church) immediately left into Drake Street, continuing to follow signs towards Upton. As you leave the village outskirts there is a small sign to Welland Court (no through road) pointing to the right. Take this turn. Continue for 4/10ths of a mile where you will notice that the lane forks in two directions. Bear left still following signs to Welland Court and continue for just under 2/10ths of a mile where there is a concealed gated driveway (easy to miss) on the left. This leads to The Old Vicarage.
