Location & Description

The Croft House enjoys a convenient position in Avenue Road, one of Great Malvern's premier streets which boasts some particularly fine homes along its length. The property is within walking distance of a comprehensive choice of amenities. Barnards Green is less than two minutes away on foot. Here there are shops and banks and a Co-op supermarket. The wider facilities of Great Malvern are only half a mile away. Here there is a more comprehensive choice of shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, Manor Park Tennis and Sports Centre, Malvern St James gym and sports complex, the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium and of course the renowned theatre and cinema complex with its adjacent Winter Gardens, all of which are within walking distance.

The immediate area is within the catchment of some of the best schools in the region such as The Chase Secondary School, Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School which is actually located in Avenue Road itself. Transport communications are also ideal. Great Malvern railway station is only a few minutes walk away. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester and Junction 1 of the M50 south of Upton upon Severn are both within easy striking distance.

The Croft House dates back to the late 1800s and is a fine example of a well engineered and designed detached Victorian home. The three storey accommodation retains a number of original period features including some particularly striking fireplaces, cornicing and picture rails, large sash windows and much of its original joinery such as original stripped Oak and Pine doors and architraves, high skirtings and the main staircase. These blend well with more contemporary features which include a well equipped kitchen, gas fired central heating, a modern family bathroom and en-suite shower room to the master bedroom. Although the property has a versatile and generous floor area it does not ramble and is therefore easier to maintain than many houses of this calibre.

On the ground floor an enclosed porch leads to the main reception hall off which there are doors to the study, dining room and drawing room (both of which have lovely sash windows and impressive fireplaces), a large open plan and well equipped kitchen/breakfast room (which has two wood burners and a Belling Range cooker), a rear porch and a utility/cloakroom with WC. On the first floor a lovely open galleried landing leads to five generous bedrooms all of which have attractive sash windows. The master bedroom has its own en suite shower room. There is also a separate family bathroom. On the lower ground floor and accessed from the main hall stairs lead down to a games room (ideal for children or teenagers).

Outside a tarmac driveway provides off road parking and leads to a mature well established garden within which there is a summer house and a useful garden store.

A brick pillared entrance opens onto a tarmac driveway capable of accommodating at least three vehicles and flanked on each side by Malvern stone walls supporting a raised shrub border and hedging. Steps from the driveway lead to the front garden, which is laid to level lawn, with stocked shrub borders and ornamental trees enclosed on two sides by mature hedging. The main facade of the house supports attractive climbers. From the driveway a gated entrance leads via the side of the house into the rear garden and onto a gravel path and seating area flanked by a raised rockery. Here also there is a recently erected garden SHED (10' x 6') of timber construction. Steps lead up to the main rear garden which is laid to lawn encircled by herbaceous borders containing spring bulbs, ground cover plants and mature shrubs. The garden itself is fully enclosed by a mixture of high brick walls and fencing supporting a variety of climbers (mainly Ivy). A paved and stone path leads to the opposite side of the house where there is a large SUMMERHOUSE (14' x 9'3") of timber construction with part glazed entrance door, three windows and lighting. At strategic points there is an external tap and outside lighting.
