Location & Description:
1 Goodson Road enjoys a convenient position less than half a mile from the bustling and well served centre of Malvern Link where there is a full range of amenities including shops and banks, the Co-Op supermarket, takeaways, places to eat out and two service stations. Morrison's supermarket is also less than half a mile away and the wider facilities of the cultural spa town of Great Malvern are just over a mile distant. Here there is a comprehensive choice of shops and banks, Waitrose and Co-Op supermarkets, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Transport communications are particularly well catered for. There is a mainline railway station just over half a mile away and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about six miles distant.
1 Goodson Road comprises a traditional semi-detached house built in the 1920's. Unusually, it retains a number of original features including cornicing to ceilings, picture rails, attractively restored stripped pine floors, original fireplaces and grates and perhaps the most striking feature of all, a Victorian style red tile cast iron cooking range. These lovely old features blend beautifully with a number of more contemporary improvements that have been carried out by the previous and present owners, especially the beautifully fitted and well equipped kitchen and a Victorian themed modern bathroom. The house also has gas fired central heating and modern double glazed windows.
The accommodation is arranged on three floors and is extremely flexible and versatile. Its strength is that it can adapt either to suit a large growing family for anyone who wants to work from home, or as at present, run a business. In this case the current owner has B1 Use Class and runs a highly successful business from home from the self-contained lower ground floor which enjoys its own completely independent external access, thus ensuring that it does not intrude into the family quarters. It provides a good balance.
The house sits on a very good size corner plot fronting on to both Goodson Road and Worcester Road. Within the grounds there is secure off road parking. The garden is, in effect, arranged on three levels and includes a formal landscaped area fronting on to Goodson Road as well as a further enclosed and walled courtyard at the rear, off which there is an external brick workshop. The property is not really a house that can be judged externally. This is one of those homes that potential buyers should take the trouble to stop and see for themselves.

From Goodson Road a gated and pillared entrance leads on to a stepped pathway flanked by Malvern Stone walls and raised borders to the front door of the house. From here a trellised archway and gate leads into the front garden. This is laid to stepped levels of gravel enclosed by close boarded fencing, bamboo and trellising and featuring borders with shrubs and a decked patio. From Worcester Road a pillared and pedestrian gated access provides private access to a small brick forecourt enclosed by brick pillars and railings and leading to the lower ground floor of the property. This is used exclusively by private clients. Also off Worcester Road a separate, much larger gated and pillared entrance leads to a lower courtyard and a secure parking area enclosed by Malvern Stone walls. Here also there is a covered bike shelter. Steps from this parking area lead to an upper tier behind the house where there is another fully enclosed and very attractive formal walled flagstone courtyard with raised shrub border and water feature. Off this courtyard there is a secure WORKSHOP 10'8 x 6'6 max with fitted wall unit, double glazed window, power and lighting connected.
