Location & Description
Strawberry Hill enjoys a convenient position along Garretts Bank less than ten minutes on foot from the centre of the popular village of Welland about two miles from Hanley Swan and just four miles from the well served towns of Malvern and Upton upon Severn. Transport communications are excellent. Junction 1 of the M50 motorway south of Upton is less than seven miles away and there is a mainline railway station in Malvern. The cities of Worcester, Cheltenham and Gloucester are all within easy driving distance. Educational facilities are second to none in both the state and private sectors at primary and secondary levels including The Chase and Dyson Perrins, Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School in Malvern as well as the nearby Hanley Castle secondary. There is a primary school in Welland itself which also has a village hall, church, shop/post office and a pub.
Strawberry Hill is a two storey detached chalet bungalow which was originally built in 1960 but has since been the subject of alteration, extension and refurbishment into a fine immaculately presented contemporary home. It stands on elevated ground adjacent to open countryside. From this commanding setting it has wonderful views across farmland and in particular towards the Malvern Hills in the west. It's a great spot!
The imaginatively renovated accommodation is generous (extending to over 2000 square feet). It is both bright and spacious and all the principle rooms make the most of the lovely outlook over countryside or towards the hills. A contemporary theme runs through the whole house. This is particularly well illustrated by an extremely well equipped kitchen and by the newly equipped bathrooms and shower rooms.
On the ground floor a large reception hall leads to all the principle rooms including an impressive lounge, a modern conservatory, a separate dining room, the striking kitchen, utility room, cloakroom with WC and a new shower/wet room. Also at this level there is a large double bedroom (with a full set of wardrobes) and a study that doubles as a fourth bedroom when required. Stairs and a galleried landing lead to the first floor off which there are two more double bedrooms and a newly refitted bathroom. A new oil fired boiler has just been installed and the house also has double glazed windows and carpets.
Strawberry Hill enjoys a lovely approach through a gated entrance onto a gravelled and tarmac driveway that provides parking for numerous vehicles and leads to a double garage at the rear of which is a bespoke summer house and store. The large garden has been beautifully thought out and has matured into the perfect setting combining formal landscaping and large areas of lawn with trees and hedging yet at the same time keeping maintenance to a minimum. There are seating areas including a raised terrace at the front of the property from which there are views of the surrounding countryside. The rear garden has a particularly impressive view of the Malvern Hills.
