Location & Description

Scotland House enjoys a convenient position within walking distance of the centre of Great Malvern where there is a comprehensive range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket and the renowned theatre and cinema complex. Malvern Link is even closer at hand. Here there are further amenities as well as two service stations, Lidl and Co-operative supermarkets. Less than five minutes on foot are a number of local shops in Newtown Road. Transport communications are excellent. There is a mainline railway station less than five minutes away on foot. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about eight miles.

The building enjoys a semi-elevated setting on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills and has wonderful views across the Severn Valley. It is less than five minutes away on foot from both Malvern Link common and the network of bridleways and footpaths which criss-cross the hills themselves.

Scotland House was originally constructed about ten years ago and comprises seventeen apartments. Flat 6 is one of a small number that remain in the ownership of the current freeholder who has instructed the selling agents to seek a buyer. It can be approached at ground floor level from the front of the building. However, a stairwell and lift provide direct access to the rear of Scotland House where number 6 has a double length tandem garage and can enjoy use of the communal gardens.

The apartment itself is well presented and has double glazed windows, fitted carpets, electric radiators and particularly good storage facilities (including wardrobes and a number of cupboards). Its generous accommodation is a little larger than at first meets the eye and includes a long entrance hall off which there is an impressive open plan kitchen and living area with a comprehensive range of integrated units and appliances, two double bedrooms one of which has its own private en suite shower room and the second of which has a doorway leading to an en-suite bathroom which has separate access into the hall. From its elevated position there are views over the Severn Valley towards Worcester.
