Location & Description:
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a detached family home occupying a superb location on the westerly slopes of the Malvern Hills affording far reaching views across the undulating Herefordshire countryside to Hay Bluff and Wales beyond.

Harcourt Road is situated in one of Malvern's most sought after locations being in walking distance of the Malvern Hills and still within easy travelling distance of Great Malvern which offers a fine range of amenities including independent shops, banks, building societies, restaurants, public houses and Waitrose supermarket. Malvern is renowned for its theatre complex with cinema and concert hall all in the backdrop of the inspirational Malvern Hills.

There are excellent educational facilities available at both primary and secondary levels in the private and public sector. Transport communications are also excellent with mainline railway stations in Malvern and Colwall offering direct links to Worcester, Birmingham, London, Hereford and South Wales. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway just outside Worcester and junction 1 of the M50 south of Upton upon Severn bring the Midlands and South West into an easy commute.

Bucklers was originally built in the 1960s with the accommodation being designed so that the majority of rooms take in the glorious and fantastic views on offer. Although the property has been well maintained over the years it is now in need of modernisation and would make a splendid home for a prospective purchaser.
