An Immaculately Presented Detached Four Bedroomed Family Home Enjoying An Elevated Setting With Wonderful Views Across The Severn Valley Only A Few Minutes Walk From The Town Centre. Energy Rating "D"


Blackacre enjoys a convenient position only five minutes on foot from the centre of the cultural and historic spa town of Great Malvern where there is a fine range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Transport communications are excellent. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is only about seven miles and there are mainline railway stations at both Great Malvern and Malvern Link less than a mile away. The house is well placed for access to all the best local schools in both the state and private sectors including Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls School. For those who enjoy walking the dog Malvern Link common is only about five minutes away on foot.


The property is situated in Back Lane, an exclusive residential street in one of the town's premier locations. From its semi elevated spot on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills most of the principal rooms in the house enjoy a lovely view across the rooftops of Malvern towards the Severn Valley in the distance.

Originally constructed in the 1980's Blackacre is a distinctive, spacious and versatile three storey detached house. It has gas fired central heating and double glazed windows. The property has been meticulously upgraded by the current owners with every room undergoing a transformation. The heart of the home is located in the open-plan kitchen dining room with splendid bi-fold doors seamlessly making the expansive decking an integral part of the home entertaining space.

Blackacre enjoys a lovely approach along a long sloping driveway terminating immediately in front of the house where there is a turning and parking area. This also leads to the double garage alongside which there is a secure storeroom/void. The garden has clearly been planned with care and imagination and over the years and has matured to provide a lovely setting.
