Location

The property enjoys a convenient position less than half a mile from the well served and busy centre of Barnards Green where there is a comprehensive range of amenities including shops, supermarket and takeaways. The cultural and historic town centre of Great Malvern is less than a mile distant. Here there is a wider choice of shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium.

The immediate area is particularly well served by local schools at primary and secondary levels in both the state and private sectors including The Chase, Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School. Transport communications are also excellent. There is a mainline railway station only about fifteen minutes away on foot and junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is just 8 miles.

The property is close to open countryside and Malvern Common is only a mile away. In addition to this the paths and bridleways that criss-cross the full range of the Malvern Hills are just five minutes by car.

Description

Originally constructed in the late 1960's by a builder for his own occupation, 54 Bellars Lane is a substantial detached two storey home with generous accommodation. The property is in need of full renovation and refurbishment but it offers a great opportunity for buyers to embark on a project and to stamp their own mark on the house. It also offers scope for further extension.

On the ground floor an entrance porch leads to a reception hall, lounge/dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, separate WC and to a side passage off which there is access to both the garage and to a workshop/utility room. On the first floor there are five bedrooms, a bathroom, separate WC and a shower room. There is also a gas fired central heating system (requiring updating).

Undoubtedly one of the great strengths of 54 Bellars Lane is its setting in a much larger than average mature landscaped garden. It is particularly well suited to young children with well established shrub borders, trees and a wooded area at the far end. Within the curtilage there is extensive off road parking for several vehicles and to the side of the property there is space to either extend the existing accommodation or to construct a new garage block. Two greenhouses are included with the sale.
