Location & Description

20 Richards Close enjoys a convenient position just over a mile from the well served cultural and historic town of Great Malvern where 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. The equally well served centre of Malvern Link is also less than a mile away. Here there are two service stations, further shops and banks as well as Morrisons and Lidl supermarkets. Transport communications are excellent. There are mainline railway stations in both Great Malvern and Malvern Link and junction 7 of the M5 motorway south of Worcester is only about 7 miles. Educational facilities are well catered for with a range of highly regarded primary schools in the immediate area and the equally well respected Dyson Perrins secondary only five minutes away on foot.

The property is situated on the outskirts of town and therefore has easy access to open countryside including the Malvern Hills and the nearby Worcestershire Way.

20 Richards Close is a traditional two storey semi-detached house originally dating back to the 1950s. It has dual frontage onto the cul de sac of Richards Close itself and onto Leigh Sinton Road. Some improvements have been carried out to the property in recent years notably the installation of contemporary double glazed windows. However, further refurbishment is also required and it does offer scope for extension. The property will make a fine project for conversion into an excellent family home.

On the ground floor a porch leads to a small lobby and to the main lounge/dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and a small utility room. At first floor level a landing leads to three bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC. Externally there is a mature garden. Although there is no off road parking currently provided within the curtilage there is potential to create the necessary space (subject to Highways Authority approval).
