Location & Description

Occupying a slightly elevated position this is a substantial modern detached family house which was designed by the present owners to their own high specification and was completely rebuilt by a local firm of builders in 2000. The house commands magnificent long distance views over the River Severn and is situated in a most delightful rural setting standing in grounds of approximately 4.25 acres. Approximately 1/3rd of a mile of river frontage. There has been a property on this site, which has been within the same family ownership, since the early 1800s and has never been offered for sale on the open market.

Whilst enjoying a tranquil setting the property is still within easy access to the town centre of Upton upon Severn where there is a fine range of amenities including shops, bank, supermarket, inns, restaurants, primary school and medical centre with doctor and dental surgeries. Hanley Castle high school is also close by. Other major centres at Malvern and Worcester are also within easy travelling distance providing good transport links and further educational, cultural and recreational facilities.

The M50/M5 motorway is just beyond Upton and brings the Midlands, South Wales and the South West all within a convenient commuting time. There are mainline railway stations at Malvern and Worcester providing connections to Birmingham, Hereford and London Paddington.

It is not possible within the confines of these details to completely do full justice to the house being in such a wonderful location as well as having full fishing and mooring rights. It obviously provides for a superb family home but also has the potential to be used in conjunction with a variety of commercial uses such as Bed & Breakfast or a recreational outlet relating to boating and fishing. The property has oil fired central heating, American Anderson double glazed wooden sash windows and pine interior doors, architraves and staircase, Roca sanitary ware and Matki glass shower enclosures in all bathrooms. The agent strongly recommends an early inspection to fully appreciate this exceptional property and its beautiful setting.

To the south side of the property there is an Indian slate terrace and feature well. There is a sloping area of ground behind the garage laid to grass but mainly the grounds sweep away from the property along a level area of grass to the river bank and are interspersed with a small orchard of Plum, Damson, Cherry and Apple trees. Beyond this there are various hillside shrubs and trees as the land leads on to its furthest point.

There have been some occasions when the river has broken its banks and water has egressed as far as the orchard in the grounds but due to its elevated position the property itself has not been affected by flooding.

We have been advised that mains electricity and water are connected to the property. Central heating is via an oil fired boiler. Drainage is to a Klargester bio-disc sewage system.

No statement relating to services or appliances should be taken to infer that such items are in satisfactory working order and intending purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves where necessary.

From the centre of Great Malvern proceed down Church Street into Barnards Green Road and to the major island in the centre of Barnards Green. Take the third exit continuing along Barnards Green Road (B4211) signposted to Upton. Follow the Guarlford Road out of town for approximately one mile into the village of Guarlford. On seeing the church and nursery on your right hand side, take the next left hand turning into Clevelode Lane. Follow this road for just under a mile to a crossroads (where it meets the B4424 Upton to Worcester Road). Carry straight on across this road towards Clevelode following this narrow lane down passing a house on the right hand side, for just over quarter of a mile and take the first track on your right identified by a public footpath sign. Continue along this track for a short distance which leads down to the property.
