A Grade II-listed Victorian property previously used as a hotel, restaurant and antiques shop in Worcestershire has gone up for sale for offers over £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 of Nicol & Co said: “This beautiful property is thought to have been built in the 1840s and has had various uses over the last 180 years.

“It was once the home of what was known as Welch’s hotel, restaurant and tearooms, as can be seen in an old photograph, and it has also been used as an antiques shop.

“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 and loves how much character and charm it has, with its Grade II-listed status reflecting that.

“Based in the heart of Great Malvern, the property also has a wonderful terraced garden, with double doors off the master bedroom on to a decking area, ideal for having your breakfast or an evening drink.”
