Location & Description
The Penthouse Apartment Charlbury House enjoys a convenient position less than five minutes on foot from the centre 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.
Transport communications are excellent. There are mainline railway stations less than half a mile away in either Malvern Link or Great Malvern itself and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is just under eight miles away. Educational needs are well catered for including Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls School in the private sector as well as The Chase and Dyson Perrins Secondary state schools. Waitrose supermarket is only about five minutes walk away.
The property itself is a beautifully presented and recently refurbished top floor apartment. It is one of six homes in an elegant Grade II Listed period building, the main feature of which is its generous space and magnificent views across the Severn Valley.
The developers have shown considerable imagination when converting this fine building, managing to retain its Georgian architecture and integrity yet at the same time introducing a number of contemporary features. These combine to provide bright and spacious apartments that make the most of the stunning views across the Severn Valley and towards the Malvern Hills but which also cater for the demands of modern life including fitted carpets, gas fired central heating, beautifully equipped kitchens (with a full range of white goods) and off road parking. Much of the internal masonry was re-constructed, the roof was replaced and original sash windows overhauled. This has allowed higher levels of insulation and lighting to be introduced (mainly LED internally to the flats themselves and PIR motion sensors to the communal areas). Other features include the introduction of oak doors, access to the attractive landscaped communal grounds, a private garden shed and a video entry system.
