The property enjoys a convenient location in the well served village of Welland where there is a local stores, primary school, church and village hall. Welland is less than four miles from the cultural and historic spa town of Great Malvern and a similar distance from the riverside town of Upton upon Severn both of which provide a comprehensive range of amenities. The city of Worcester is about twelve miles.

Transport communications are excellent. There is a mainline railway station in Great Malvern and Junction 1 of the M50 motorway near Upton is just seven miles. Educational needs are well catered for. The property is within a few minutes drive of some of the best primary and secondary schools in the region including Hanley Castle, The Chase and Dyson Perrins State schools as well as Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls School in the private sector.

The property is situated only a few minutes walk from Castlemorton Common. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty set against the backdrop of the Malvern Hills.


Originally dating back to the 1930's Solva is a traditionally built detached house which has been the subject of major improvement and updating and was extended in both the 1970's and again more recently in 2017. The beautifully refurbished and very generous contemporary accommodation is hard to appreciate at first glance. Buyers will only understand the extent and quality of the property when paying a full visit.

On the ground floor an enclosed porch leads to a reception hall, a large lounge, a separate family room (which could double as a dining room), two bedrooms, a bathroom, a utility room and the main focal point of the house which is undoubtedly its fine open plan and recently extended kitchen/dining room. On the first floor a landing leads to two further bedrooms and a shower room. The accommodation has the added bonus of oil fired central heating and double glazed windows.

Outside a wide gravel driveway provides private parking for several vehicles and leads to a recently erected detached double garage. The good size garden lies mainly to the front of the house. It is laid to lawn with well established shrub borders, paved and gravelled seating areas designed to keep maintenance to a minimum. The smaller rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with a large flagstone patio and seating area. Potential buyers should note that Solva and the neighbouring property known as Umtana are owned by the same family. Umtana is also available to purchase through John Goodwin who will be happy to provide full details.
