Artists Paul Powis & Sara Hayward have lived at Four Seasons in Worcester since 1998. "As artists we are very much aware of the importance of light and our new apartments are very spacious with high ceilings and huge windows. We pride ourselves on great attention to detail."
S Powis purchased this apartment in 1998
"We love being able to walk or cycle into town but equally love the rural feel of the Battenhall area with its mature trees and easy access to open fields.We can recommend lots of great local walks many with panoramic view of the Malvern Hills. "We have all the benefits of living in a city yet living here is so peaceful and quiet it really is like living in the country."
"Our Teme apartment at Four Seasons is a delightful, comfortable, contemporary, architect designed apartment close to Worcester city centre (a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk) but overlooking open countryside. Guests can immediately relax and unwind in this spacious apartment whilst looking out on the wildlife in the larger than average one acre garden. Worcester is well placed as a fantastic base to explore other parts of England; for example, we are just one hour from the coastal town of Clevedon in Somerset and 2.5 hours from Exmouth on the Devon coast."
