Location

Jasmine Cottage enjoys a convenient position less than a mile from the centre of the cultural and historic spa town of Great Malvern where there is a full 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 excellent. There is a mainline railway station approximately a mile away in Malvern itself. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway near Worcester and Junction 1 of the M50 south of Upton upon Severn are both within approximately 10 miles.

Educational facilities are well catered for. In the private sector the renowned Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls school are both in Great Malvern and in the state system the property falls within the catchment area of the ever popular Chase secondary school. It is also within walking distance of one of the most favoured junior schools in the region, The Wyche Primary.

Jasmine Cottage is situated on the upper eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills and is literally on the doorstep of the comprehensive network of footpaths and bridleways that criss-cross the area. These together with nearby Peachfield and Malvern Commons provide the perfect choice for those who enjoy the outdoor life, like to walk the dog or who have active children needing space to play.

The property itself originally dates back to the late Victorian era. For most of its history it was a simple quarryman's "two up two down" cottage which fell into disrepair. However, in 2013 the property was renovated, refurbished and completely redesigned into a virtually new contemporary home.

Description

There are a number of noteworthy features including the liberal use of oak joinery to floors, ceilings and walls, brace and latch doors and in places to the external cladding of the house and its car port. Added to this are double glazed windows, a full gas fired central heating system (under floor at ground level and radiators at first floor level), a fully integrated range of kitchen units and sanitary ware in the bathroom and en-suite. The house is offered with fitted carpets at first floor level and a mixture of natural oak and stone tiles on the ground floor.

The generous accommodation includes a lovely oak framed porch leading to a large reception hall, an impressive drawing room, the well equipped kitchen/dining room, utility room and cloakroom with WC. There is also a lovely conservatory that doubles as an additional sitting room or even a study with floor to ceiling double glazed windows and doors that open out onto a raised decked terrace and enjoy the view across the Severn Valley below. On the first floor a landing leads to four bedrooms, one of which has its own en suite shower room and there is a separate family bathroom.

Outside a steep driveway leads to parking for vehicles and to the Oak framed and timber clad car port. On two sides of the house there is a large timber decked terrace that provides seating areas from which there are views of the adjacent woodland, the hills and above all the Severn Valley in the far distance.

Jasmine Cottage has a large sloping hillside garden which contains many varieties of established shrubs and trees. It is believed to extend to around half an acre.
