Residential For Sale, Sold £450,000 Guide Price - House
Nursery Road was originally the site of a large fruit nursery that has slowly evolved into a delightful residential location characterized by a mixture of period and modern homes.
This unique architect-designed house fits in with its surroundings whilst adding modern touches, superb levels of insulation and generous proportions. The home demonstrates the quality of design and build that can be achieved when the architect-developer has a hands on approach letting the property adapt to its context rather than using a set design and finish.
This is evidenced in the large windows to the bedrooms which allow great views of North Hill to the front and far reaching views from the bedrooms to the rear.

Nursery Road, Malvern
Malvern is an elegant spa town that sits at the foot of the Malvern Hill, which are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and inspired the likes of Elgar, JRR Tolkien and CS Lew-is. The town is renowned for its superb amenities, restaurants, relaxed nature yet easy access to the motorway network and a direct rail link to London.
The settlement of Malvern dates back to the Bronze age fort within the hills and the medieval Priory. In the mid 19th century Malvern grew quickly and largely as the spa town that it is now still recognised for. Visitors came from far and wide to experience the original mineral water that still flows freely. The Great Western Railway expanded to incorporate the town and now there is still a railway line giving access to both London and Birmingham.
Malvern has long been famous for its boarding schools. At one time there were over a dozen boarding schools in the town. Many of these have now amalgamated and the closed schools being converted into housing for the high demand of people wishing to move to the town. One of these amalgamated schools is Malvern College and Malvern St James girls’ school which attracts pupils from all over the world and is an ISI top rated school, with a prep school The Downs also in the town. Local state schools include Dyson Perrins C of E Academy, rated ‘good’ by Ofsted, and St Josephs Catholic Primary School which has attained a ‘good’ rating.
Malvern’s connectedness is a key attribute that makes the spa town such an attractive place to live. There are trains to London ( around 3 hrs) and to Birmingham, Cheltenham and Glouces-ter, via its two stations. It’s also in easy reach of the M5 motorway at junction 7.
Things to do
The hills are the focus of many outdoor activities including biking, paragliding, walking and riding. There are also some great golf courses within easy reach. For the less energetic there is a renowned Malvern theatre and the Three Counties showground which hosts a variety of events throughout the year including the RHS Malvern Spring Festival and The Royal Three Counties agricultural show. As for shopping, Malvern has its share of big retail names, including Waitrose, but also has a good number of independent shops for items as varied as lighting, books, home accessories and handmade jewellery
One of its best restaurants is L’amuse Bouche in the Cotford Hotel, which has won multiple awards. Mount Pleasant, The Swan Inn and The Inn at Welland are also highly regarded eateries in and around Malvern, and just outside town is 1919 at The Cottage in the Woods, which combines delicious food with spectacular views of the Malvern Hills.
