Guide price

Bedrooms: 6
St Christopher's is a magnificent example of a period town house, set in the beautiful surroundings of West Malvern on the elevated westerly slopes of the Malvern Hills. Dating from around 1850 and much improved and modernised, the property offers period elegance and spacious accommodation set over four floors. To the ground floor is a welcoming reception hallway, formal sitting room and adjoining music room which both access the west facing balcony. There is an additional formal dining room and study on this level. Stairs lead down to the lower ground floor at garden level with another spacious hallway, television room/snug, boot room, as well as the splendid breakfast kitchen which opens to the terrace, as well as a utility room. To the first floor are two large principle bedrooms with front facing bay windows, both of which open to fantastic and very spacious en-suite bathrooms. To the second floor are four further double bedrooms and three bathrooms, two of which are en-suite and one is Jack and Jill to the other bedrooms. The property is approached via a gated entrance to an open driveway, with a detached double garage. The gardens extend to a lower level with a level lawn with established planting, a deck terrace to enjoy the westerly aspect and spectacular sunsets and a courtyard area at the rear. This is a stunning house that enjoys the everchanging and always impressive westerly views over Herefordshire to the Welsh mountains beyond, which must be viewed to be appreciated.


St Christopher's enjoys a convenient position on the outskirts of the highly regarded village of West Malvern on the lower slopes of the Malvern Hills. With easy access to open countryside and footpaths including the Worcestershire way. The well served cultural and historic spa town of Great Malvern is just over two miles away. Here there is a comprehensive choice of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. The larger village of Colwall (which also has an excellent range of amenities) is a similar distance away. The property is within easy striking distance of several schools in both the private and state sectors at secondary and primary levels. Transport communications are good. There are mainline railway stations in both Colwall and Great Malvern. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway south of Worcester is about ten miles and Junction 2 of the M50 south of Ledbury is a similar distance.
