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. 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 house 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.


Umtana is a fine detached contemporary house constructed just over ten years ago to a high standard. Its immaculately presented and generous accommodation has a number of quality features including the use of solid oak for most of the internal doors, floors, wardrobes and staircase, oil fired central heating and double glazing.

On the ground floor there is a large reception hall that leads to a good size lounge, a well equipped open plan kitchen/breakfast room, conservatory and utility room. An inner hall leads to the sleeping quarters where there are three double bedrooms, two of which have their own en-suite shower rooms. There is also a large family bathroom which enjoys dual access both from the hall and to the third bedroom. An elegant open tread oak staircase with steel spindles leads to the first floor and to a landing off which there is a large attic room. Though this has not been converted into formal living quarters it would be a simple enough task to do so. It could make a fourth bedroom or an excellent office/playroom (subject to building regulations). All the bedrooms have built in wardrobes.

The house has a highly efficient oil fired central heating system and double glazed windows. These combined with good levels of insulation ensure that the property maintains warmth and minimises heat loss.

Umtana is approached across a shared gravel driveway via a gated entrance leading to a large detached double garage. There is extensive parking for several vehicles and a good sized private mature landscaped garden. Within the curtilage is a bespoke OFFICE/GARDEN ROOM which ensures that the property is perfect for those who may wish to work from home or perhaps like the idea of a home gym.

It should be noted that Umtana and the neighbouring property known as Solva are owned by the same family. Solva is also on the market and available to purchase. Further details can be requested from the selling agent.
