Mr Clarke thinks :
The craftsmanship is exceptional.
Combe Lodge is delightful apartment within a beautiful period property. With far reaching views over the Severn Valley this is a magical setting. Originally a grand house, Combe Lodge is now a delightful conversion offering four apartments, all with their own private entrance. Number 4 is a spacious home bought back to life having been totally refurbished, lovingly decorated and carpeted, offering modern living yet oozing quaintness and charm ready just to move your furniture in.
Set on the Eastern bank of The Malvern Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, Foley Terrace is set amongst footpaths, bridleways and natural springs with far reaching views across the Severn valley. An ideal situation for a nature enthusiasts, ramblers, cyclists and photographers, in fact anyone that loves the outdoors as there is so much on offer with many historic sites to visit and wonderful walks to be had. For that well-earned treat just a short walk away is the vibrant town of Great Malvern.
A walk-way with automatic lighting leads to an enclosed patio area, where you can sit with the morning paper and a coffee listen to birdsong. Climbing the steps into the Reception Hall you will revel in the space that would allow a table and chairs for dining, or that much needed space to make a study if you find yourself working from home. Delightful panelling waits for lovely paintings to be hung.
The Lounge offers spectacular views over the valley, a place to stand and watch the sunlight skipping across the countryside, the clouds billowing by, a room with a view! Delightfully decorated in neutral shades with original cornice, built in bookshelves, Victorian fireplace and copious amounts of light from the two sets of windows definitely a room to pop your furniture in, put your feet up and just relax.
Mrs Clarke loves :
The mix of modern interior with period charm.
The inner hall has a great storage cupboard for hats and coats with stairs that lead up to a stunning newly fitted kitchen. What a treat for the cook! Plenty of workspace and cupboard spaces to hide your pots and pans, a carefully thought out and planned space with a charming cottage window that allows you to look into the trees daydreaming as you wash up.
What a bathroom! Imagine having a soak in the bath admiring the beautiful Moroccan style wall and floor tiles, in delicate hues of natural warm tones with complementary marble style tiles... what a place to relax and soak in your surroundings.
The main bedroom sits at the rear of the property with stunning original cornice and a feature bedroom fireplace, peace and quiet prevails here. A room where you can lie on the bed and gaze through the window and watch the leaves grow and then change colour, a window letting you view the world change in all the glorious seasons. A second bedroom looks out at the far-reaching views across the rooftops and greenery of this beautiful part of the world.
Above home, you'll find a gorgeous private terraced garden, so amble up, look over the rooftops and spy on what’s going on below. Welcome home.
- Three words : Luxury. Quality. Home.
