The city amenities of Worcester with motorway access is via junction 7 of the M5 are 13miles. Slightly further afield are the Cathedral cities of Hereford (20miles) and Gloucester (21miles). Trains run from Colwall direct to Worcester, Hereford, Birmingham & London Paddington.
The property is situated on the corner of Evendine Corner and the prestigious Evendine Lane, close to the village green. It overlooks Caves Folly, once the stabling for a race course that featured in the village in the early 20th century. In the backdrop is the Herefordshire Beacon also known as British Camp, an Iron Age fort from the 4th century B.C. Legend has it, it was the location of Caratacus’s last stand against the Roman invasion. There are numerous footpaths close by with several leading directly on to the Malvern Hills. The immediate area has wide grass verges, quiet lanes and is popular with walkers, horse riders and cyclists.
Built in the 1920's 5 Evendine Corner benefits from well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings and period features whilst being solidly built and offering plenty of scope for alteration and extension. The property has been owned by the current vendors for over 30 years, whom have extended the property twice. Further alterations could be made subject to the necessary consents. The property would benefit from some cosmetic modernisation.
