Location

6 Wilton Road enjoys a convenient cul-de-sac location in one of Malvern's most highly regarded residential areas only about two minutes walk on foot from the bustling centre of Barnards Green and less than fifteen minutes on foot from Great Malvern town centre. It is therefore within immediate reach of a fine range of amenities including shops and banks, post offices, Waitrose and Co-op supermarkets, restaurants and takeaways, the renowned theatre and cinema complex, Malvern St James' Gym and the Manor Park Tennis & Sports centre. The property falls within the catchment area of several excellent schools at both primary and secondary levels in both the state and private sectors including The Chase in Barnards Green, Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School (which is only a hundred yards away). Transport communications are good. Great Malvern railway station is less than ten minutes on foot and junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about eight miles.

Description

The property itself is an impressive and very spacious four storey detached Victorian house. It was originally built by a local tea merchant and during its early years operated as a small shop with the tea being sorted and graded on the top floor. However, in more recent times it has been the subject of a complete refurbishment. The current owner, an architect, has treated this transformation as a labour of love. The end result is a fine home that cleverly blends its original Victorian architecture with more contemporary features and ideas.

These include the installation of a gas fired central heating system, supplemented by underfloor heating in the breakfast room and second floor shower room, partial double glazing, the conversion of the lower ground floor into a study/office and the use of attractive natural oak joinery to floors and staircases. Many of the original rooms have also been reshaped and opened up to introduce a feeling of light and space.

On the ground floor an attractive hall leads to a sitting room, a large lounge/dining room, an open plan kitchen/breakfast room, utility/laundry room and cloakroom with WC. Stairs from the hall lead down to lower ground floor level where the original basement was converted into an office or study that can occasionally double as a bedroom when necessary. On the first floor a generous landing leads to three bedrooms (one of which has its own en-suite WC) and to a very large contemporary bathroom with shower and WC. The most recent change is to be found on the second floor where the original roof space (former sorting room for tea) has only this year been converted into a master bedroom (currently doubling as an office) with its own newly installed en-suite shower/wetroom. From this room there are views over the rooftops of Malvern towards the hills and Severn Valley.

Outside there is off road parking for a vehicle and a small garage mainly used for storage. At the rear of the building there is a small courtyard garden.
