Location & Description

Upper Mythes enjoys a quiet setting in the charming west Worcestershire village of Alfrick, approximately six miles from Great Malvern, eight miles from the city of Worcester and seven miles from Bromyard. The village itself has a community hall, a charming church and shop, the Fox & Hounds at nearby Lulsley and two nature/wildlife reserves. There are also local bus services laid on to provide access to local primary schools at Suckley and Leigh Sinton and secondary schools in Malvern and Worcester.
Transport communications are good. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway, south of Worcester is within reasonable striking distance and there are mainline railway stations in both Malvern and Worcester. The village is not only surrounded by the two nature reserves referred to earlier but also by some of the most beautiful and unspoilt countryside. It is the perfect spot for anyone who enjoys walking or riding.

The house was completed by its present owners in 1998 in the garden of their original property. A lot of thought and consideration has gone into its design creating light and airy accommodation. Particular attention has been paid to the energy efficiency of the property with cavity wall insulation, loft and roof insulation, double glazing, air source heat pump heating and Photovoltaic panels on the roof.
