Location & Description
22 Carlton Road enjoys a convenient position less than a mile from the centre of the cultural and historic 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, the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium and Manor Park Tennis and Sports Centre. Less than half a mile away is the well served community of Malvern Link where there are further shops, banks, and supermarkets. Malvern Link common is only about five minutes away on foot. Transport communications are excellent. There is a mainline railway station within five minutes walking distance and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway south of Worcester is only about seven miles. The area is well served by a wide choice of schools in both the private and state sectors including Dyson Perrins secondary, Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School.
The house was originally constructed in the early 1900's and is one of a pair of striking Edwardian homes with distinctive half timbered fašades. Immediately adjacent to the property in Albert Park Road and Somers Road there are six pairs of houses with a similar 'Arts and Crafts' design believed to have been inspired by Charles Voysey, one of Britain's renowned architects of the time. Some original features remain including windows virtually throughout, tessellated quarry tiled flooring in the porch and hall, attractive cornicing to ceilings and much of its original joinery.
The spacious four storey accommodation has been the subject of an imaginative programme of refurbishment in 2016 by the current owners. This has not only involved the reshaping and designing of some of the principal rooms (notably the kitchen and bathrooms) but has included the installation of new plumbing and heating systems and redecoration virtually throughout. The result is a home that essentially retains its character and history but which also has a very contemporary feel about it. Some features are worthy of special mention. These include a new gas fired central heating system supplemented by underfloor heating in the kitchen and en-suite shower room, the complete transformation of the kitchen which is undoubtedly the main focal point of the property, the addition of a new utility room, the creation of a new en-suite shower room to the master bedroom and the redesigning and fitting of the principal bathroom.
On the ground floor a classic Victorian entrance porch and reception hall lead to an elegant lounge, separate dining room and to the fine open plan kitchen/breakfast room with its comprehensive range of newly fitted floor and eye level cupboards and an island unit. From the kitchen there is direct access into the rear garden and to the newly added utility room. At first floor level a landing leads to a particularly striking master bedroom with its new en-suite shower room. Also on this floor are two further bedrooms (one of which is currently used as a study) and to a brand new well equipped family bathroom (with bath, shower cubicle and WC). The original Edwardian staircase continues to the second floor where there are two further bedrooms and to a storeroom and useful attic room which potentially could be converted into additional living quarters. From the ground floor hall steps also lead down to two useful cellars.
An attractive gated entrance leads on to a driveway capable of accommodating at least three vehicles. The property stands in a mature private garden which to the rear is south facing and enjoys a view towards the Malvern Hills. Alongside the house there is a large workshop/store. There is also a Fibre optic broadband connection.
