Escape to the Country! A Grade II-listed Victorian property previously used as a hotel, restaurant and antiques shop in a popular Worcestershire town has gone up for sale, and the price is a snip at £325,000.

Charles House at 26 St Ann’s Road is the first instruction for the Malvern operation of Nicol & Co, the expanding estate agency which already has offices in Droitwich Spa and Worcester.

Erica Hinwood, the new sales manager for Nicol & Co in the Malvern area, said: “This beautiful property is thought to have been built in the 1840s and has had various uses over the last 180 years.

“More recently, it has been used as a residential dwelling and the current owner enjoys happy memories of bringing up his own family there.

“With the property retaining its commercial use aspect, it could be used as a shop again should a prospective buyer have those aspirations.”

The current owner has owned it for 20 years.

Erica added: “I’m thrilled to be marketing such a stunning property as Charles House as Nicol & Co’s first instruction in the Malvern area.”
