Location

Crystal Mount is in the very heart of the historic and elegant Victorian Spa town of Great Malvern and is within walking distance of a comprehensive range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex, the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium and Manor Park Tennis Centre. Transport communications are excellent with a mainline railway station only a short walk away and a regular bus service running nearby. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is just seven miles distant and Junction 2 of the M50 south of Upton upon Severn is approximately ten miles. The cities of Worcester (7 miles), Hereford (20 miles) and Cheltenham (approximately 25 miles) are within striking distance. For those who enjoy the outdoor life it is the Malvern Hills themselves that provide the greatest attraction and these together with Malvern Link common are both only a few minutes away on foot.

Description

Crystal Mount is a unique landmark development of apartments and penthouses constructed and completed in 2009. Apartment 14 is one of the two imaginatively designed penthouses on the top floor of the complex. From its commanding height it has wonderful views over the rooftops of Malvern towards the Malvern Hills in the west and across the Severn Valley to the east and south. Most of the principal rooms enjoy this fine outlook. Three of them even have access onto external balconies from which one can look out over the town below.

Some features are worthy of special note including LED lighting, a well equipped kitchen, a new contemporary heating system, double glazed windows, a striking spiral staircase which links the two levels of the apartment and three fully fitted shower rooms/bathrooms. A further bonus is its excellent storage and wardrobe space including two mini dressing rooms/walk in wardrobes in the master bedroom. Another feature is a galleried mezzanine which overlooks the main lounge/dining room below and which can double as a sitting room or a quiet reading area. The living room itself is also a focal point, not only because of the galleried mezzanine above it but also because of its high vaulted ceiling which gives a real feeling of space.

Apartment 14 is offered with two allocated, fully covered undercroft parking spaces.
