Bedrooms: 5
The Old Wyche Vicarage enjoys an elevated position approximately a mile south of the spa town of Great Malvern where there is a fine range of amenities. The property is situated on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills, thus enjoying access on to the hills and with a position that enjoys truly stunning views across the Severn Valley and towards Bredon and The Cotswolds in the far distance. All the principal rooms of the house and the garden make the most of this enviable outlook. Originally constructed in the 1830's, this fine detached residence is a particularly good example of Victorian architecture at its best. It is a beautifully engineered house constructed of Malvern stone and it retains many of its period features. These Victorian features blend particularly well with the major improvements and refurbishment One of the great characters of the house is its versatility. It is not only capable of accommodating a large growing family with its six principal bedrooms and four reception rooms but it also has a self contained annexe (this was the former Sunday school) that is ideal for elderly relatives, for the grown up daughter/son who lives at home or for paying guests with a venture such as AirB&B. The generous gardens are delightful and provide an elegant setting for the house as well as off road parking for several vehicles to the front. From many places in the garden there are either views of the hills behind you to the west or across the Severn Valley to the east.


The property is situated in a highly regarded and very convenient central location being within walking distance from all the facilities of Great Malvern. The property has easy access to walks on the Malvern Hills which are a dominant feature of the landscape and also an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Excellent state and private schooling include Malvern College and Malvern St James, The Royal Grammar School and The King s School in Worcester and two preparatory schools in nearby Colwall.
