Location & Description:
Woodcroft enjoys a convenient position just two miles from the centre of Great Malvern, where there is a fine range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose and Somerfield supermarkets, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash Leisure Pool and gymnasium. The town is also highly regarded for the standard of its schools and educational facilities, in both the private and state sectors at secondary and primary level including Malvern College and Malvern St James girls school. Transport communications are excellent. The property is only a short distance from the A4103 that leads to the cities of Hereford (16 miles) and Worcester (8 miles). Worcester also provides a direct link to Junction 7 of the M5 motorway.
The property enjoys a fine rural setting on the Worcestershire and Herefordshire border. It is only a short distance from the Worcestershire Way and many other lovely country walks which are so much a feature of the area. The Malvern Hills themselves are easily accessible and from Woodcroft there are views to both the front and rear across open countryside towards woodland in the distance.
The property itself is a traditional detached single storey bungalow originally constructed in the 1950s which, over more recent years, has been the subject of extension, alteration and improvement. It now offers well presented and extremely flexible family accommodation with the added bonus of oil fired central heating and double glazed windows. A large entrance hall opens into an attractive lounge, off which there is a separate dining room (although the lounge and dining room are designed as an open plan arrangement at the moment) and a particularly fine and well fitted kitchen/breakfast room. From here there is access into a large utility room and to a lovely garden room that overlooks and leads into the private rear garden itself. Also off the reception hall there are three good sized bedrooms and a large bathroom with separate shower and WC.
One of the great strengths of Woodcroft is to be found outside where the large attractively designed and mature level garden provides the perfect setting. At the rear it backs onto open fields. The front garden enjoys a rural outlook and a lovely approach off a communally accessed crescent that serves adjacent properties. All these properties overlook and have shared use over an open space laid to grass and enclosed by mature hedging. The property has off road parking for at least four vehicles.

Woodcroft is one of a small number of properties set back from the main road in a private crescent. This is approached via an 'in and out' communal gravelled driveway serving all the properties and flanked to one side by an attractive communal grassed open space enclosed by mature hedging. From here a double driveway leads to Woodcroft itself via a brick pillared entrance. The driveway provides parking for at least four vehicles. The front garden enjoys views of woodland and of the Malvern Hills and is laid to lawn with mature shrub borders, well established trees and hedging. Access to one side of the bungalow leads to a lovely large rear garden. It is principally laid to lawn with a raised two tier patio, the focal point of which is an attractive well. There are also a number of well established trees and shrubs as well as border. At the far end of the garden, there are views across the adjacent countryside. Within the grounds there is a garden SHED of timber construction. At strategic points there is outside lighting and an external tap. Most of the boundaries are fenced.
