Location & Description

Longacre enjoys a quiet position on the outskirts of the highly regarded village of Colwall which is situated at the foot of the western slopes of the Malvern Hills and boasts a wide range of facilities including a general store and Post Office, a library with internet facilities, excellent schools in both state and private sectors, a Doctor's surgery, chemist, two cafés, public houses and even a hotel. In the centre of the village less than half a mile away there is a mainline railway station providing direct access to London Paddington, Birmingham, Hereford and South Wales. There is also a local bus service to Ledbury and Malvern. A more comprehensive choice of amenities is provided by Great Malvern (three miles), Ledbury (four miles) and the cities of Worcester, Hereford and Gloucester all of which are within easy reach. The M50 motorway is only about six miles away just beyond Ledbury.
The property itself is a detached two storey house originally constructed in the mid 20th century. Though it has over the years been updated and refurbished including the installation of gas fired central heating and double glazed windows it does offer great scope and potential for improvement and above all for extension.
The accommodation includes an entrance hall, cloakroom with WC, lounge, dining room, kitchen, four bedrooms and a bathroom with separate WC. Immediately adjacent to the house a long driveway provides off road parking for several vehicles and leads to a garage and carport of timber construction.
However the great strength of Longacre is its wonderful setting in approximately 1.75 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens. These provide a spectacular backdrop for the house creating interest, variety and colour throughout the seasons. It is the perfect environment to raise young children and to interest even the most keen gardeners.

It is difficult do justice to the garden that provide a unique setting and environment to Longacre. They were clearly designed and laid out many years ago with considerable skill and knowledge and have been nurtured and shaped into something very special indeed. They are arguably the match of many a professionally designed show garden they contain almost every type of flower, plant, shrub and tree that one could imagine. There is a blend of both indigenous and foreign species which combine not only to provide a feast for the eye but also a natural haven for wildlife. A visit to Longacre is worth it for the garden alone.
In 2017 Longacre was offered for sale with over seven acres of land. The property was sold to The Elms School who purchased it for the sole purpose of acquiring part of the acreage (outlined in accompanying plan) to expand the school farm. This amounted to five acres.

A further parcel of the original ground (approximately three quarters of an acre) was purchased separately by a buyer who is currently seeking planning consent for the construction of a new dwelling (coloured on the enclosed plan). The remaining ground (approximately 1.75 acres) is being offered with Longacre and is outlined in red on the plan).
