This hugely impressive Victorian house is situated in a highly regarded tree-lined avenue, conveniently situated for access to town centre amenities and within little more than a ten minute walk of the railway station and good schools including Holy Trinity Free School, King Charles and St Ambrose Catholic Primary.

Dating from 1892 the house retains many original features including a splendid 26' long Minton tiled reception hall complete with servants' bell board, whilst front windows all feature opening wooden framed sash windows and the gardens include the original brick stable building with tiled roof. Of particular interest is the striking rear turret feature.

The principal accommodation provides a fine family home with an abundance of space and character, laid out in classic style with the central reception hall having doors radiating off to a variety of separate reception rooms, as well as to the guest cloakroom with wc and hand basin. A further door off the hall gives access to the cellar.

The elegant drawing room features 10' ceilings, a sash bay window plus cast iron feature fireplace in marble surround, together with original bell pull.

Double doors lead through to the splendid formal dining room with beams to ceiling, turret bay, decorative wooden wall panelling and Victorian cast iron fireplace with picture tiled surround and gas fire.

Also situated at the front of the house is the family lounge, again with sash bay window and Victorian feature fireplace, with double doors leading through to the separate study.

Across the rear of the house is a wonderful open plan kitchen/diner/family sitting room, the whole space measuring just over 29' wide x 19' (max). This area really forms the hub of the home, with the sitting room having sliding patio doors out to the garden and ample space for a dining table and chairs.

The open plan kitchen area (20'7 x 9'2 ) has a central island unit with granite work surface and a cream coloured range of pine cabinets complemented by wooden work surfaces, a Belfast double sink and two-oven Aga plus integral fridge & freezer.

From here a door leads through to a large utility room with a further range of cabinets, work surfaces and sink unit, plus recessed laundry appliance area.

Off the 30 long gallery landing are six bedrooms, including sash bay windows to both front facing bedrooms and an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom, with pedestal hand basin, low level wc and cubicle with mixer shower.

The principal family bathroom is of excellent proportions, featuring electric underfloor heating, floor tiling and wall tiling to half height, with suite comprising clawfoot bathtub, pedestal hand basin, low level wc and double cubicle with mixer shower.

ANCILLARY ACCOMMODATION

Substantial extensions were added some years ago which provide this two storey accommodation, accessible both independently and from within the main residence via a door off the main kitchen.

The upper floor has been configured by the present owners as a separate self-contained apartment which in the past has provided rental income, and more recently has been used as independent accommodation by various members of the family. Currently this area comprises large double bedroom with inbuilt wardrobes, modern kitchen, well-appointed bathroom and a most spacious lounge area (18'6 x 15'1 ). Note that direct access can easily be opened up from this area onto the gallery landing of the main house if required.

The ground floor of the ancillary accommodation mainly comprises three open plan connecting rooms presently arranged as gym, garden room with patio doors, and a hobbies room. There is also a WC, lobby area with staircase to the first floor, and a second utility incorporating an additional boiler and rear garage access door.

In the past these rooms have mainly served as a games room and working space, however this area would also lend itself to being combined with the apartment to create a larger living space for dependent relatives or older family members requiring their own living space.

Outside, the gardens are also a most attractive feature of the property, with full width patio giving way to extensive lawns with conifer hedged boundary, garden shed, playhouse and the original brick stable belonging to the house, which has the benefit of a power supply and lighting.

Mains gas, electricity, metered water and drainage are all connected, with council tax payable to Wyre Forest District Council, rated as Band G.
