Hornbeam House is a very well proportioned modern detached family home of over 2500 SqFt, built in 2003 and is situated in a private cul-de-sac of just four properties within the highly sought after and popular village location of Hanley Castle. The property comprises; porch, spacious reception/dining hall, large sitting room, breakfast kitchen, utility room, cloakroom, study/snug, large first floor landing, four double bedrooms, two with en-suite bathrooms and a family bathroom. Outside, the property has a generous garden that surrounds the property, a four car driveway and a detached double garage. The property is found in an exclusive development a very short walk from the popular Hanley Castle High School and the shops, amenities and communities of Malvern, Upton and Hanley Swan. We highly recommend an early viewing to appreciate the position and very generous accommodation on offer.


Hornbeam House enjoys a convenient position less than a mile from the bustling riverside town of Upton upon Severn where there is a nice range of amenities including shops, a sub-Post Office, medical centre, library, three churches and the Upton marina. Educational needs are particularly well catered for at secondary level within Hanley Castle High School a few hundred yards away and at primary level in the neighbouring village of Hanley Swan.

Upton upon Severn has a deserved reputation for its clubs and societies, and notably for its jazz, folk and music festivals that take place throughout the summer. The property has immediate access to countryside walks and in particular the Malvern Hills. Within Hanley Swan there is a local store and the house has good access to the more major centres of Worcester (nine miles) and great Malvern (six miles). Junction 1 of the M50 motorway, south of Upton is only about three miles away. There is a particularly highly regarded local village pub within walking distance.

Malvern is a thriving spa town well positioned for Worcester and Birmingham, with easy access to the motorway network and direct mainline trains to London. The Malvern Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty are the dominant feature of the landscape. It is also a renowned cultural centre with an excellent theatre and cinema, leisure centre, swimming pool and several sports clubs. Malvern has very good shopping facilities, a Waitrose superstore is in the town centre and there are a wide range of independent retailers on a busy high street. More comprehensive facilities can be found in Cheltenham and the Cathedral city of Worcester, which caters for most needs.
