ENERGY RATING "D"
Location & Description:
7 Brookside enjoys a convenient position in the heart of the old village of Cradley on the border of Herefordshire and Worcestershire. The property is strategically well placed for access to a number of major centres including the city of Worcester (ten miles), Hereford (sixteen miles), Malvern (five miles) and Ledbury (seven miles). Cradley itself is highly regarded and well served with a number of local amenities including a doctor's surgery, a butchers shop, church, primary school and the Red Lion public house which is within walking distance via public footpaths.
The property is in the heart of unspoilt countryside and less than ten minutes by car from The Worcestershire Way and the Malvern Hills so it is within immediate reach of numerous countryside walks and a network of public footpaths passing through the village. In Malvern itself there is an excellent range of facilities including Waitrose supermarket, shops and banks, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Malvern also has two railway stations and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is only about ten miles away. The area is also renowned for its educational facilities including a variety of highly regarded primary state and private schools (notably Malvern College and Malvern St James School as well as The Downs and Elms Preparatory Schools).
7 Brookside was originally built in 1968. However, the current owners recently invested heavily in an imaginative programme of refurbishment. The transformation is impressive as the property has been transformed into a fine contemporary home. At its heart is a beautiful drawing room which enjoys lovely views across the garden to countryside beyond and a striking open plan kitchen/dining room with its designer range of Wren units and accessories. These two rooms and the entrance hall all have Karndean flooring. There are three bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite shower room and there is a family bathroom, also refitted with a contemporary suite. The bungalow has gas fired central heating, solar panels which provide additional hot water, cavity wall insulation and bespoke double glazed windows all designed to make the most of the fine views over the garden and to surrounding countryside. These together with carefully planned internal lighting give the property a lovely bright atmosphere.
One of the great strengths of 7 Brookside is its wonderful setting at the end of an exclusive tree lined cul-de-sac serving just seven properties. Arguably the property has the prime spot, approached as it is across its own long driveway flanked on each side by lawns, shrubs and trees. The driveway leads to a turning and parking area that can accommodate several vehicles and to the double garage part of which is set aside as a utility area with direct access to the house itself. The main garden lies to the rear of the property. It is large, colourful and imaginatively thought out to make the most of its south and west facing aspect across adjacent open countryside to the hills in the distance. Running along one boundary is a natural tree lined stream giving a delightful backdrop. At strategic points there are seating areas set aside to catch the sun and admire the views.
