Historic vicarage in Great Malvern is transformed into new homes
A neglected former home of the founder of the Convent of the Holy Name in the heart of Great Malvern has been transformed into luxury apartments.
St Leonard’s House, which was built in 1869, has been completely refurbished over the past 12 months by Pershore-based Broadway Heritage Ltd and it is now ready to welcome its new residents.
The Grade II listed building now offers six apartments on three floors including one in an adjacent cottage, all with their original features restored including the roof, original windows, shutters and feature plasterwork.
The former vicarage in Ranelagh Road, designed by renowned Victorian church architect George Frederick Bodley, has a new roof and has been completely re-serviced with new wiring, plumbing, heating, life safety and security systems.
Broadway Heritage director Michael Hodges said: “Each off these homes is different and each has unique features and characteristics.
“This is an historic building that has been transformed for life in the 21st century. It genuinely offers contemporary living in an atmosphere of Victorian splendour.
The apartments, five of which have two bedrooms and the other one bedroom, have fully-fitted kitchens and bathrooms and are carpeted throughout. St Leonard’s House also has secure parking for 12 cars.
Mr Hodges said: “We want people to feel that when they step through the front door of St Leonard’s House they are walking into homes of which they can feel justifiably proud and where they can also feel completely at ease.”
Work on transforming the house is now complete and all six apartments are ready for people to occupy.
Mr Hodges said: “We have created homes of real comfort and significance and I think that people who live in them will be delighted to call St Leonard’s House their home.”
