Location & Description

Greenways enjoys a convenient location less than three miles south of Great Malvern where there is a comprehensive range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. More local amenities are available in Malvern Wells including a nearby general stores, a Post Office, beauticians and service station. Transport communications are excellent. There is a mainline railway station in Malvern. Junction 7 of the M5 at Worcester and junction 1 of the M50 near Upton upon Severn are both within easy striking distance. The property also lies within the catchment area of some of the most highly regarded schools in the area at both primary and secondary levels and in the state and private systems. The Worcestershire Golf Course and Three Counties Showground are both less than half a mile away.

Situated on the lower slopes of the Malvern Hills the property enjoys a sheltered setting and is one of just three interesting Georgian terraced homes sharing the same entrance and driveway. Originally constructed in the mid 1700's and extended in the 1860's, Greenways occupies the middle section of these three homes and offers spacious accommodation on three floors. It retains its distinctive Georgian and Victorian facade and a number of original features, notably its sash windows. It has also played its part in creating a small piece of more modern history. In the 1970's it was the meeting place where the Ecology Party was originally founded. This was the forerunner to the Green Party whose current leader Caroline Lucas, a former pupil at Malvern Girls' College. Hence the name Greenways.

As is often the case with historic properties such as this and in particular for many of the homes scattered in the Malvern Hills, Greenways boasts a certain quirkiness in its accommodation and layout. It has all the potential and flexibility to adapt to different lifestyles and needs and offers scope for buyers to update or stamp their mark. It is an excellent family house but is equally well suited to home owners without children who need space or perhaps work from home or maybe even artists and musicians.

Approached off Wells Road along a concealed and sheltered driveway that serves two of three properties in the complex, Greenways has plenty of space to accommodate the parking of a number of vehicles, a double garage and a well established and mature garden. At the end of the formal landscaped area of the rear garden is an additional two acres of woodland and grounds that stretches into the Malvern Hills themselves. This can be purchased separately by negotiation. It provides a lovely backdrop and acts as a haven for wildlife.
