A historic detached period property built in 1880 and situated in the heart of the sought-after village of Colwall within walking distance of village facilities and railway station. Stone Hall offers over 3000 square feet of versatile accommodation. The property is currently part residential and part commercial with the ground floor configured as versatile office space with four rooms, hallway, kitchen area and two cloakrooms. The two upper floors are residential space, with two reception rooms, breakfast kitchen and bathroom with a spacious landing area, three bedrooms, independent rear access, and balcony with a view of the Malvern Hills. The property has private garden space and a gated driveway with detached double garage. This is an interesting opportunity for a property with dual use as it stands, or conversion into a full residential property (subject to planning), or with numerous options for conversion into 2 or 4 luxury flats and/or further development to the site. It was built by the Ballard Family, the engineers who were commissioned to build the railway tunnel connecting Malvern to Colwall. The name, Stone Hall, derives from the legendary Colwall Stone in front of the property which, folklore has, was thrown from the Malvern Hills by a giant who lived there! The location of the centre of Colwall is hugely appealing as it is a short walk to the railway station, doctors, and all village facilities. An internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate the position and potential that the property has to offer.
