Description

Brockhill is a superb family home which was constructed in 1930 for the Cadbury family, by the renowned local builder James of Colwall and designed by the Architect responsible for the Bournville village. Brockhill Road is on the western slopes of the Malvern Hills, and is considered to be one of the most desirable locations in the area.

The charming Art Deco property has remained almost unchanged since the 1930's and has only had five families as occupiers. It retains most of its period features, including a fine oak staircase, panelled wooden doors, oak panelling and flooring in the sitting/dining room, original fireplaces, picture rails , even some of the original 1930's light fittings.

Gas central heating is installed and some of the windows are double glazed, but the majority are the original Crittall windows.

The rooms are of generous proportions and briefly comprise two excellent reception rooms, snug/study, breakfast kitchen, laundry room, and cloakroom/boot room on the ground floor. The original house had seven bedrooms, but two rooms have been knocked through to create five, one of which has an ensuite bathroom. There is also a shower room, bathroom and W.C on the first floor. On the second floor is an excellent, large hobbies/games room.

Brockhill is set in a garden with adjoining paddock and tennis court which extends to 2 Acres. The westerly views from the house and garden are exceptional, and the house was constructed so that nearly all the rooms have the benefit of these remarkable views
