Location

6 Westminster Road enjoys a convenient location only a mile from the centre of the historic and cultural spa town of Great Malvern where there is a fine range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Transport communications are well catered for. There is a mainline railway station in Great Malvern itself less than 2 miles away. Junction 1 of the M50 motorway at Upton and Junction 7 of the M5 at Worcester are both about 9 miles distant. The house also falls within the catchment area of some of the best educational facilities in the area, notably the Wyche primary and Chase secondary schools and is within a few minutes' drive of Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School. For those who enjoy the outdoor life or simply walking the dog this is the perfect spot. Peachfield Common is about 10 minutes away on foot and the network of bridleways and footpaths that criss-cross the Malvern Hills are on the doorstep. The Worcestershire Golf Club is just over half a mile away.

Westminster Road is part of a very close knit community. It is a very quiet residential street dominated by traditional Victorian homes, the majority of which are restricted to the west side of the road. Located as it is on the upper slopes of the hills the street has a wonderful aspect across the Severn Valley below and number 6 is no exception. The road is part of Malvern's conservation area.
