Location & Description

The Brink enjoys a convenient position only a mile from the cultural and historic spa town of Great Malvern where there is an excellent range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Transport communications are also well catered for. Great Malvern railway station is less than two miles away. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester and Junction 1 of the M50 at Upton upon Severn are only ten miles. The property is also handily placed for some of the best schools in the region including The Wyche Primary, The Chase Secondary, Malvern College and Malvern St James all of which are close at hand.

The Brink is situated on the upper eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills and from its commanding position the property enjoys fantastic views across the Severn Valley below. It enjoys a semi woodland setting and even has the added advantage of ownership of an additional woodland clearing as well as access to the network of walks, bridleways and footpaths that criss-cross the hills themselves.

Originally built in the 1950's, the property has been transformed in recent years and imaginatively reshaped and designed to provide spacious and very contemporary accommodation some of it with an open plan layout particularly at ground floor level. There are a number of noteworthy features. The most striking of these is undoubtedly the emphasis on natural joinery particularly to floors and windows, internal doors, bedroom furniture and to the staircase which provides an interesting focal point. The property has been designed so all of the principal rooms enjoy views over the Severn Valley.

Offered with gas fired central heating and double glazing the accommodation includes an impressive entrance hall where there is also a large double bedroom, shower/wet room and a large open plan dining hall off which there is a refitted kitchen completed in December 2017, lounge/family room and separate sitting room which with its large bay window commands a fine view across the Severn Valley. From the lounge there is direct access on to a raised balcony. At first floor level there are four bedrooms, the principal one of which has a full range of interestingly shaped fitted wardrobes and furnishings and an en-suite shower room. There is also a separate family bathroom. At basement level there is a recently converted study/office with a separate WC.

Outside there is off road parking for one vehicle. The mature garden has recently been well thought out and has been designed on four tiers to create level areas for seating and enjoying the fine views. Apart from the good size garden there is on the opposite side of Eaton Road an additional area of former woodland which has been cleared and belongs to The Brink. This amounts to approximately one fifth of an acre.

From the driveway a gated pedestrian slate path leads to the front door and side terrace with steps descending to the garden.
