If the walls of The Orangery could regale us with the sounds of the past, it would be with music rather than talking.

Because this unusual building in Belle Vue Terrace, Malvern, was once part of the Mount Pleasant Hotel and used as its ballroom until the 1960s.

It dates back to the early 19th century and was originally built as an orangery. It was converted into a private residence in 1988.

The striking main room has five full-height round-headed windows and is long enough to accommodate both living and dining areas.

To the rear of the original building is an extension. This has a reception area, hallway with access to a garden room and a bathroom. At the end of the hall there are two large bedrooms, the master with en suite bathroom.

Belle Vue Terrace is part of the Malvern Conservation Area and is less than a quarter of a mile from the town centre, shops and theatres and less than half a mile from the station.
