Location & Description
20 Quest Hills Road enjoys a convenient position less than a mile from the centres of Great Malvern and Malvern Link. It is therefore handily placed for access to a full range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose, Morrison's, Co-op and Lidl supermarkets, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. The house is within walking distance of Malvern Link railway station and junction 7 of the M5 motorway south of Worcester is less than 7 miles away. It is also less than ten minutes on foot to Malvern Link common and the area is well served by an excellent choice of schools at both primary and secondary level.
The property itself dates back to the Victorian era. However, the current owners have imaginatively and thoughtfully restored and extended the accommodation, retaining much of its original character and blending this well with the comforts demanded by our more contemporary lifestyles. The house is beautifully presented and has a bright, warm and welcoming atmosphere.
On the ground floor a newly renovated porch leads to a charming sitting room (with bay window), separate dining room, utility room, cloakroom with WC and a well equipped kitchen/breakfast room. At first floor level a landing leads to three very good sized bedrooms, one of which doubles as a garden room as it has direct access on to an external terrace and into the rear garden itself. Also on this floor there is a contemporary shower room with WC. Other features worthy of special mention include a gas fired boiler installed in 2014 which serves the central heating system, attractive and original Victorian sash windows which have been fully restored and re-roofing which was completed in 2009.
The quality of the internal accommodation is matched externally by a delightfully landscaped and mature garden designed to keep maintenance to a minimum but also to enjoy the pleasant setting. This includes a long brick paviour driveway that can accommodate at least two vehicles and a private back garden on two levels consisting of lawn and a timber decked terrace. All in all, this lovely home is ready for immediate occupation without any further investment being required.

A long brick paviour driveway leads via the side of the house to provide off road parking for at least two vehicles. Steps from the driveway lead up to the front garden which is designed to keep maintenance to a minimum. It consists of a raised stone border supported by stone rockeries and enclosed by mature shrubs and miniature conifers. A gated entrance leads onto a brick paved path via the side of the house to a short set of timber steps up to the main rear garden which is on two levels. The lower level connects to the garden room (described earlier) and provides a sheltered seating area at one end of which is a GARDEN STORE (6' x 4') of timber construction. Further steps lead up to the main landscaped garden which is laid to lawn encircled by well stocked shrub borders with roses and well established ground cover plants. The path from the side of the house continues to the top of the garden which is fenced and hedged. There is also external lighting and an outside tap. Under the decked terrace there is a covered storage area.
