Location & Description

The property enjoys a convenient location almost equidistant from the cultural and historic spa town of Great Malvern and the well served neighbourhoods of nearby Barnards Green and Malvern Link. Malvern offers a comprehensive range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Barnards Green has a further range of local shops including a Co-op supermarket. These facilities are matched by Malvern Link where there are more shops, Co-op and Lidl supermarkets. Transport communications are excellent. There are mainline railway stations in both Great Malvern itself and Malvern Link as well as a regular bus service passing near to the property. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway near Worcester is only about seven miles away. The area is also well served by highly regarded schools at both primary and secondary levels and in the state and private sectors including Dyson Perrins, The Chase, Malvern College and Malvern St James girls School. For those who enjoy outdoor life the house is within walking distance of Malvern Link Common and the Malvern Hills are less than five minutes away by car.

176 Pickersleigh Road is a striking detached stone faced house originally constructed during the late 1930's. The accommodation does require updating and refurbishment. It offers enormous scope for extension and reshaping into a very fine contemporary home. Currently on the ground floor an attractive entrance porch leads to a reception hall off which there is a cloakroom with WC, lounge, separate dining room and a kitchen. At first floor level a landing leads to three bedrooms and a bathroom. A particularly attractive feature of the building are its large stone mullioned leaded windows which give the front facade of the house a particularly distinctive appearance. The property also has gas fired central heating.

Outside, a driveway provides off road parking for at least two vehicles and leads to a garage off which there is a small workshop. Adjacent to the Garage is a further store. The garden is laid to level lawns with mature trees, shrubs and hedging giving it some privacy. At the rear of the house is a small sheltered area of garden from which there are views towards the Malvern Hills.
