Location & Description

8 Sling Lane enjoys a convenient location just under a quarter of a mile from the centre of the cultural and historic spa town of Great Malvern and within walking distance of a fine range of amenities including Waitrose supermarket, shops and banks, places to eat out, the renowned theatre and cinema complex, the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium and Manor Park Tennis club and Sports Centre. The property is only about ten minutes on foot from Great Malvern railway station. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about seven miles distant. The house is close to and falls within the catchment area of a number of highly regarded schools in both the private and state sectors including The Chase Secondary School, Malvern College and Malvern St James. For those who like the outdoor life, or simply walking the dog, Malvern Link common is only about five minutes away on foot and the property has close access to the full range of the Malvern Hills.

Originally built in the early 1950s 8 Sling Lane has been the subject of alteration and extension in more recent times although there is still scope for further improvement. It offers extremely spacious (over 1,900 square feet) and versatile accommodation with gas fired central heating, partial double glazing and cavity wall insulation. Some original features still remain including wood block flooring in the reception rooms, fireplaces and a few original metal framed windows.

On the ground floor a large dining hall leads to a separate lounge, kitchen/breakfast room and a cloakroom with WC. On the first floor there is a long landing and a master bedroom suite with its own substantial dressing room, bathroom and separate WC (all part of an extension over the garage). Also on this level are three further bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC. The roof space has also been partially converted to provide a small attic room and additional storage areas.

Undoubtedly one of the great strengths of 8 Sling Lane is its wonderful setting against the backdrop of the Malvern Hills in a sunny beautifully landscaped colourful south and west facing garden which enjoys a particularly fine view of the hills themselves. It was imaginatively designed to provide interest and variety throughout the year and in particular in the late spring and early summer. Within the curtilage there is off road parking for several vehicles and a garage. There is more than enough space to extend the existing accommodation if necessary.

It was obviously designed with imagination, care and attention and has matured to provide a wonderful setting against the backdrop of the Malvern Hills that lie to the west. The main rear garden is south facing and sunny. It is laid out to provide interest, colour and variety throughout the year most notably in the late spring and summer with large beautifully stocked shrub borders, trees of every description and extensive areas of level lawn interspersed with seating areas. The rear and side facades of the property support interesting climbers most notably an impressive Wisteria. At the far end of the garden on its southern boundary there is a small stream with fruit trees and shrubs that provide shelter and a shaded seating area set aside for barbeques. Within the grounds there is a GREENHOUSE and garden SHED of timber construction.
