Location & Description:
Bardon House enjoys a convenient position less than half a mile from the centre of Great Malvern and thus within walking distance of a full range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. It is also on the doorstep of some of the finest schools in the region including Malvern College and Malvern St James in the private sector and The Chase Secondary. Transport communications are well catered for. Great Malvern railway station is less than ten minutes away on foot and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about eight miles.
The property itself is located in arguably the premier residential area of Great Malvern, dominated as it is by some of the town's most elegant and historic homes. From this fantastic spot the house enjoys a very impressive outlook towards the Malvern Hills and a delightful setting in a mature, imaginatively landscaped and colourful garden.
Built in the mid 1980's, Bardon House is a spacious and well thought out detached family home which, over the years, has been refurbished and upgraded by the present owners. Its flexible and generous accommodation is extremely well presented and has the added bonus of gas fired central heating, double glazed windows and excellent levels of insulation. It also has a number of other noteworthy features including a burglar alarm system and good security, modern bathroom suites, brass furnishings to light and electrical fittings and an Beam installed vacuum/cleaning system.
On the ground floor an enclosed porch leads into an attractive and elegant reception hall, the main feature of which is expensive oak flooring that continues into the living room and a very striking ash staircase to the first floor. From the hall there is direct access into the large living room, a separate dining room, a lovely conservatory, a well equipped kitchen/breakfast room, a small study, utility room and cloakroom with WC. At first floor level there are four bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite shower room. One of the bedrooms currently doubles as a large games room. There is also a re-equipped family bathroom.
The house enjoys a lovely pillared and gated entrance on to a large block paviour driveway that provides extensive parking and leads to the double garage and carport. The gardens are a delight.
