A substantial semi-detached Victorian house over three floors, featuring high ceilings, spacious rooms, airy landings and large sash windows allowing an abundance of light to fill the house.
The modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room includes an integrated gas hob and a woodburning stove with plenty of space for a large table and chairs, and ample storage. This room overlooks the garden and opens directly to a wonderful large terrace, offering an additional "room" for seasonal entertaining space and al fresco dining.
There are two further reception rooms on the ground floor, a large sitting room with exposed timber floorboards and an open fireplace which opens to the dining room, currently a music room. There is also a peaceful separate study and a ground floor cloakroom with WC.
An original, wide staircase leads to the first floor and a very light landing space.
The impressive main bedroom has a walk-through dressing room leading to an en-suite shower room, and also benefits from superb views of the Malvern Hills from the double aspect room.
There are two further double bedrooms with excellent proportions, one with built in wardrobe space and both with vanity basins.
On the second floor are three bedrooms, two doubles and a single, all of which have views of the surrounding hills. A family bathroom services these bedrooms.
The property has generous off-road, private parking to the front of the house with space for several vehicles. To the side of the house is an open fronted garage/carport with useful attached storeroom.
Behind the house, adjacent to the terrace, is a good-sized utility room with WC and a workshop, attached to the kitchen and with external access.
The large south-facing terrace leads to a generous level lawned garden area framed by beautiful mature trees, creating a very private outdoor space.
The garden is predominantly to the rear of the property and has been beautifully maintained by the vendors. This area is fenced and is child and dog friendly.
Within the garden there is a large summer house/home office (with power and broadband). There are also several storage sheds and a green house.
