Location & Description:
Warwick House is situated on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills in the very heart of the historic, elegant spa town of Great Malvern and therefore within walking distance of a fine range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex, the Splash Leisure Centre and Manor Park Sports Club. Transport communications are excellent with a mainline railway station at Great Malvern. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway is approximately 9 miles away and Junction 1 of the M5, just south of Upton upon Severn is about 10 miles distant. The cities of Worcester (9 miles), Hereford (20 miles) and Gloucester (25 miles) provide a more comprehensive range of facilities. For those who enjoy the outdoor life, this is a perfect spot as the Malvern Hills themselves, with their network of paths and bridleways, together with Malvern Common are just a few minutes walk away.
For over 170 years, Warwick House was a major department store synonymous with the genteel image of Malvern with its excellent frontage stretching along Wells Road. Over the years the "top peoples" shop has been converted into luxury apartments and town houses. 5, Warwick House represents a small part of this fine award winning development.
The property itself is one of four duplex apartments. It is constructed on two floors at ground and lower ground floor levels and is approached from Wells Road via an attractive communal entrance foyer. From its elevated position, it commands views over the rooftops of Malvern towards the Priory and The Severn Valley in the far distance. Some features are worthy of special note including gas fired central heating with thermostatically controlled radiators, moulded plaster ceiling cornices to the Living Room and Kitchen, double glazed windows, Georgian style panelled doors, fitted carpets and quality floor coverings throughout, a Zurich building guarantee, an impressive individually designed Kitchen with gas oven, hob, extractor, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washer/dryer, attractive white bathroom suites with showers and a NACOSS approved security system.
No. 5 is entered at ground floor level via its own reception hall. This leads to two bedrooms, one of which has an en suite bathroom. The main family bathroom is also at this level. Stairs lead down to the lower ground floor where there is a second hall, a most impressive living room and the high quality kitchen with its excellent range of accessories. Also at this level is the third bedroom. Outside there is an allocated parking space and shared visitor parking together with communal grounds.
