Location

The property enjoys a convenient position only a few yards from Victoria Park, which has a large children's play area, football field and tennis courts. 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 many 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 within walking distance or five minutes by car.

Description

Cannock House is a striking three storey detached eight bedroomed Victorian house, originally constructed of local Malvern stone in 1871. From most of the principal rooms there are glorious uninterrupted views of the entire length of the Malvern Hills. The generous accommodation has seen little significant investment or updating for many years, and now presents an all too rare opportunity for a buyer with imagination to carry out full refurbishment and therefore to transform the house into a fine contemporary family home. Most of the Victorian features remain including original sash windows and fireplaces, skirtings, floorboards, cornicings, picture rails and even the Minton mosaic tiled floor in the hallway. Essentially the integrity of the property and its Victorian architecture have been maintained, something that is not always the case when presented with a period home to renovate. The property was reroofed in the 1990's though no documentation is available to verify this.

The house stands in a good size level garden which although neglected in recent months will provide a delightful setting for any keen gardener. There is a narrow gated entrance that provides some off road parking although there may be potential to create additional private parking, subject to permission from the highways authority. At the far end of the garden there are a range of brick outbuildings providing useful storage or workshop potential.
