A unique opportunity to replace or refurbish/extend one of Malvern highest detached homes in an elevated position with outstanding views over the Severn Valley and along the Malvern Hills. The property is a three bedroom detached house in need of refurbishment situated in a plot of just under a quarter of an acre. It could be refurbished to make a wonderful family home or holiday home/let. Architects acting for the owners have also undergone a pre-planning application with Malvern Hills Planning Department and received a positive response to the replacement of the property with a high specification four bedroom detached home taking full advantage of the elevated location and views. This makes the property a very versatile opportunity for the right buyer.
This is a rare opportunity to purchase one of the highest properties situated on the Malvern Hills. Its elevated position sits just below the ridgeline and there is direct access from the site onto the Malvern Hills. The site extends to just under a quarter of an acre. There is a wide parking area to the front which leads onto the garden which then widens and extends downhill. From the site there are panoramic views to the East looking over the Severn Valley to Bredon Hill and the Cotswold escarpment. To the south there are views running along the Malvern Hills ridgeline to Perseverance Hill.
The existing owners submitted a pre-planning application to Malvern Hills District Council ref: c/13/00288/PA. This allowed for the demolision of the existing dwelling and replacement with a new one - "The existing dwelling is well screened and only visible from one neighbouring site. Its landscaped setting is its biggest contribution to the Malvern Wells Conservation Area and I have no concerns with the demolition of the dwelling, subject to securing the erection of a replacement dwelling following its demolition". Plans were also drawn up for the extension of the existing dwelling. Plans for both schemes and also the pre-planning application response are available within the Great Malvern Office as both hard and electronic copies if required.
The exisiting property is a three bedroom detached house in need of some refurbishment. Upalong, could just be refurbished and updated to provide a wonderful home or holiday home with its excellent location so high on the hills and with direct access onto them. The accommodation is as listed below.

Continue to the top of the road passing through the Wyche Cutting. Turn immediately right onto the West Malvern Road and immediately right again onto Beacon Road. About 40m after passing the houses on the right hand side there is a road on the right that comes back on itself heading up hill. The parking area for Upalong can be found on the left hand side just after the brow of the hill as indicated by the Allan Morris 'For Sale' board.
