Location

Eynhallow is located on the lower slopes of the Malvern Hills within close proximity of the very popular and highly sought after village of Colwall. Colwall offers a good range of local facilities including shops, post office and pharmacy, schools, a doctor's surgery, churches, hotel and public houses. There is a regular bus service to Ledbury (approximately 4 miles) and Great Malvern (approximately 2 miles). Colwall also has the benefit of a mainline railway with direct services to Birmingham New Street, Oxford and London Paddington.

Description

Originally built in 1954, Eynhallow is a deceptively spacious detached property enjoying a secluded position on the lower slopes of the Malvern Hills in an area of outstanding natural beauty and within close proximity to areas of common grounds. It is understood that the property originally comprised a three bedroom detached bungalow, which was subject to an extension in the 1970's to create a substantial two bedroomed annexe. Whilst the accommodation lends itself to meet the requirements of two families, it also offers enormous scope for further improvement to be reconfigured and transformed into a fine contemporary family home. The property benefits from partial double glazing and oil fired central heating, with a new boiler installed in 2018.

The well proportioned accommodation is arranged at ground floor level with an entrance hall leading to a living room with wood burning stove, dining room, study/playroom, breakfast kitchen with utility room off, three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The annexe enjoys its own independent access and in brief comprises an entrance porch, hall, cloakroom, two bedrooms, Jack 'N' Jill style bathroom and an impressive first floor sitting room with feature fireplace and balcony. There are interlinking doors from the annexe leading to the dining room and breakfast kitchen.

The most distinguishing feature of Eynhallow is its location, occupying a secluded position in a quiet and almost undiscovered spot on the lower slopes of the Malvern Hills. The local area is thriving with interesting wildlife and for those who enjoy exploring the outdoors, there is direct access to the network of paths and bridleways that criss-cross the hills. The property is approached by an unadopted track leading to a bloc paved driveway and double garage. Outside, Eynhallow enjoys an established garden with large areas of lawn and views across surrounding woodland.

With so much potential and offered with no onward chain, the agents strongly recommend an internal inspection to appreciate this unique opportunity.
