Location & Description
Willowview enjoys a convenient position approximately two 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. There is a local Spar stores and service station about ten minutes walk from the property. Transport communications are well catered for. There is a mainline railway station in Great Malvern. Junction 1 of the M50 at Upton and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester are both within approximately ten miles. The area is well served by an excellent choice of schools at primary and secondary levels and in both the state and private systems including The Wyche and Wells Primary, The Chase Secondary, Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls School. The Worcestershire Golf Club is less than a mile away.
103 Wells Road is situated in a large easy to maintain garden on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills. From its elevated spot there are views of the hills to the west and of the Severn Valley to the south east. It enjoys a pleasant approach off Wells Road via a gated entrance on to a long driveway that not only provides off road parking for several vehicles but also leads to a double carport and provides access to both the front and rear gardens.
Originally built in the 1970's Willowview was the subject of major investment and a complete transformation in 2011 when the accommodation was effectively redesigned and reshaped by the present owners. This included a substantial two storey addition which incorporates extensive glazing giving most of principal rooms lovely views and excellent natural lighting. The result is an impressive contemporary home.
A number of features stand out including a very generous and well lit entrance hall, a large bright drawing room with fine views across the garden to countryside beyond, an impressively equipped kitchen/breakfast room with gas AGA, a separate dining room, a family room, study and utility room. The house has five good size bedrooms two of which have their own en-suite facilities. There is also a separate family shower room. All the shower rooms, bathroom and cloakroom have a really contemporary feel equipped as they are with high quality suites. Part of the redesign of the accommodation allowed the architect to create a first floor balcony/terrace which can be accessed from each of the three main bedrooms and from which there are wonderful views across the Severn Valley.
In these days of high energy costs a point worth noting is the energy efficient savings that have been designed into Willowview. Apart from double glazed windows and gas fired central heating it also has high levels of cavity wall and roof insulation.
