Location

The property enjoys a convenient position close to Victoria Park, which has a large children's play area and football field. Although set back from the town centre in a quiet no-through road, it is only a short walk to the busy centre of Malvern Link where there is a comprehensive range of amenities including shops, a bank, takeaways, places to eat out, Co-op and Lidl supermarkets, Doctors and Dental surgeries and two service stations. Malvern's main retail park is less than half a mile away. Here there are many familiar high street names including a large Morrisons supermarket, Marks & Spencer, Boots, Next, Halfords and others. The wider facilities of the cultural and historic town of Great Malvern are one mile away with shops and banks, coffee shops, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium.

Transport communications are excellent. Malvern Link railway station is less than ten minutes away on foot and frequent buses to Worcester are two minutes away. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about seven miles. Educational needs are well catered for. There is a choice of well-respected schools at both primary and secondary levels, and in the state and private sectors in the immediate area. For dog walkers or those who enjoy the outdoor life, Malvern Link common is a short walk and the Malvern Hills themselves are five minutes by car.

Description

Longcroft is an interesting detached house dating back to 1938. Its two storey accommodation is in need of updating but offers enormous potential for extension and for transformation into a very fine contemporary home. On the ground floor a spacious reception hall leads to a lounge, a separate dining room, a cloakroom with WC, kitchen/breakfast room and to a small conservatory. An original 1930's staircase and galleried landing leads to three principal bedrooms and to a box room that doubles as a small fourth bedroom when necessary. There is also a bathroom and separate WC. Windows are double glazed and heating is provided by way of a gas fired system.

One of the great strengths of 28 Victoria Park Road is its setting in a larger than average south facing mature garden from which there are fine views across the rooftops of Malvern to the hills in the west. A circular driveway provides parking for several vehicles and leads to a garage alongside which there is a separate workshop.
