Location & Description
9 North End Lane enjoys a convenient position just over a mile from the well served cultural spa town of Great Malvern where there is a comprehensive choice of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Less than a mile away is Malvern Link. Here there are further shops and banks, Co-operative and Lidl supermarkets and two service stations. Morrisons supermarket and Malvern's main retail park (with all the usual high street names including Marks and Spencer, Boots, Next, etc) are both about half a mile. A similar distance away is Barnards Green where there is a further range of amenities including a Co-op supermarket.
The property is well placed for access to an excellent transport network including a regular bus service, Malvern Link and Great Malvern railway stations (both less than a mile) and junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester, which is about 8 miles. Educational facilities are second to none at both primary and secondary levels in the state and private sectors including Dyson Perrins, The Chase, Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' school.
The property itself is a traditional two storey detached house originally constructed in the mid 1960s. It has been the subject of extension (a conservatory has been added) and improvement over the years although it should be acknowledged that some further updating is now required. It is offered with its original gas fired warm air heating system, cavity wall insulation and more recently replaced double glazed windows.
The generous accommodation includes an enclosed entrance porch, a good sized reception hall, shower room with WC, sitting room, dining room, conservatory, kitchen and utility room all at ground floor level. On the first floor a landing leads to four bedrooms and to a bathroom. From some of the rooms there are direct views towards the Malvern Hills in the West.
Without doubt one of the great strengths of 9 North End Lane is its setting and garden. It is approached over a block paviour driveway that provides off road parking for at least three vehicles and leads to an attached garage. This garage has cavity walls so could easily be converted into additional accommodation if necessary. The house stands on a large level plot in a mature colourful garden which gives it a good degree of privacy and contains a greenhouse and two useful garden sheds.
Two gated entrances (one from the garden itself the other from an adjacent cul de sac known as Denison Close) leads to a further area of garden which belongs to the property. This in the past has been landscaped and used for the cultivation of vegetables. Within its curtilage there is a large studio/workshop. In the past planning consent has been granted for the erection of a single residential dwelling on this plot. However, there is a covenant on this parcel of ground that prevents any residential development. This has been challenged but cannot be lifted. As a result 9 North End Lane is being offered with the benefit of this extra land as it stands.

Up and over door, power and lighting, window to rear aspect and doors leading to hall and rear garden. It should be noted that this garage has cavity walls thus lending itself to provide additional residential accommodation, subject to conversion and building regulations.
The front garden consists of an area of lawn which continues to the side of the house and a number of very mature and well stocked shrub borders with hedging and some well established trees giving the property a degree of privacy. A pathway leads via a gated entrance directly onto Denison Close, an adjacent cul de sac. Further gated pathways to each side of the house lead into the delightful rear garden. This has been attractively landscaped to provide interest, colour and privacy throughout most of the year. It is laid to level lawn with space for an ornamental pond and a large area of paved patio providing sheltered seating areas. There are a variety of well stocked shrub and herbaceous borders, a trellised archway supporting variegated ivy, well established boundary hedging and fencing and some mature trees. Within the garden there are two SHEDS both of timber construction, a GREENHOUSE and adjacent to the garage an integral STORE. At strategic points there is external lighting and an outside tap.
Additional Plot of Land - 4.57m (15ft 0in) x 2.74m (9ft 0in)
As mentioned earlier in this brochure 9 North End Lane is also offered with an additional area of ground. This can be approached via gated entrances from the garden itself and separately off the adjacent cul de sac, Denison Close. In the past it has been used for the cultivation of vegetables and as landscaped garden. Within its curtilage there is a large WORKSHOP/STUDIO (15'9" x 9') of timber construction with glazed windows and power connected.
It is a secure area with boundary hedging and fencing. In the recent past planning consent was granted on this ground for the construction of a residential dwelling. Despite this consent the project cannot be completed as there is a restrictive covenant on the ground (which has been unsuccessfully challenged) preventing any development of the site for separate residential use. The plot will therefore be offered as part of the sale of 9 North End Lane as it stands but with an additional clause in the contract with the buyer stating that if the covenant were to be lifted in the future the current owners would be entitled to a share of any uplift in value resulting from this. Full details can be obtained from the selling agent.
We have been advised that mains gas, electricity, water and drainage are connected to the property. At strategic points there are also telephone points. This information has not been checked with the respective service providers and interested parties may wish to make their own enquiries with the relevant authorities. 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.
