Less than five minutes on foot is Malvern Link common so this is the ideal spot for those who like to walk the dog. The full range of the Malvern Hills with its network of paths and bridleways is only a short drive away. Transport communications are excellent. There are mainline railway stations in both Great Malvern and Malvern Link, both within walking distance and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway south of Worcester is about eight miles. Malvern is well known for the quality of its educational facilities. The property is only a short distance from the renowned Malvern College and Malvern St James private schools as well as The Chase and Dyson Perrins secondary state schools. There is an equally wide choice of highly regarded primary schools.

Description of Property

The Pembridge was originally constructed in the 1860's as an elegant Victorian Gentlemans Residence with servant's quarters. Its generous and versatile accommodation is on four levels and extends to over 5000 sq feet. Though currently in use as a popular guest house which provides a regular income from its eight letting rooms, planning consent has recently been granted by Malvern Hills District Council to allow it to return to its former use as a private dwelling. There is no doubt that it would make a very fine family home.
Many original features from its Victorian heritage remain including its very impressive sash windows, cornicing to ceilings, picture rails and most of its original joinery including an elegant central staircase, internal doors, architraves and high skirtings. More recent improvements include the installation of a contemporary gas fired central heating system and in 2017 a complete overall of the roof.
The main ground floor entrance is via an attractive enclosed porch that opens into a large reception hall off which there are four principal rooms. These currently comprise a large lounge, a separate dining room and two bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite shower room. If the property were to be returned to its original use as a dwelling house these two bedrooms would lend themselves well for conversion into an additional reception room and perhaps a new kitchen. From this level the elegant Victorian staircase leads up to the first floor where a large open landing leads directly to five guest bedrooms, each of which has its own en-suite facility. From here a lobby leads to a secondary staircase which serves all four floors. It leads to the second floor where there are two more guest bedrooms each with en-suite bath and shower rooms. The secondary staircase also leads directly down to lower ground floor level where there is a self-contained flat which also has its own separate external entrance. Here an inner hall leads to a lounge, the main kitchen/breakfast room, two bedrooms and a private bathroom with separate shower and WC. This level also has two large cellars providing extensive storage facilities as well as access into a small private courtyard off which there is additional external storage.
Pembridge House stands in a large mature garden, mainly laid to lawn with extensive gravel and paved terracing and seating areas, mature and well established shrubs and trees and a large gravel car park capable of accommodating a number of vehicles. To the side of the house there is a small external garden store.

Cellars

From the kitchen and from the office there is access to two substantial cellars each measuring nearly 30ft in length x 8ft. These provide excellent storage. One of them leads directly into a small external private courtyard that lies to the side of the main house. This provides a sheltered seating area. Within the courtyard there is a useful single storey brick outbuilding which is divided into two separate storerooms. Adjacent to this there is a small external WC. A gated pathway leads from the courtyard to Graham Road.

Outside

A pillared entrance off Graham Road leads to the main front entrance to The Pembridge. The front garden is designed to keep maintenance to a minimum and is mainly laid to gravel with paved pathways and well stocked shrub borders enclosed to the road by a low brick wall supporting railings. The pathway continues to the side of the house where is it flanked by lawn, shrub borders and mature trees and leads directly to the rear of the house. The rear garden itself is effectively on two levels with a raised paved and gravel seating area/terrace that links directly to the courtyard described earlier. The remainder of the rear garden is laid to lawn with a variety of well established shrubs and trees, walled and hedged boundaries. The pathway continues to a large gravel parking area enclosed by laurel hedging, fencing, brick and stone walls. This can accommodate a good number of vehicles and provides direct access on to Albert Road North.
