Property Snapshot

Arley Wood House enjoys a simply stunning elevated position within its own tranquil gardens and ground, with sweeping panoramic parkland views across the beautiful surrounding countryside. Local towns such as Stourbridge, Kidderminster, Wolverhampton and Bridgnorth are near by offering excellent amenities, whilst the cosmopolitan cities of Birmingham and Worcester, plus the M5 motorway network, is also within easy reach.

This is the second time the house has been offered on the open market. Originally part of a larger estate, which was disbanded approximately 40 years ago, Arley Wood House was built by a wealthy local industrialist and sold to his accountant and subsequently to two further owners. In the hands of its last owner the property has been relatively unloved for ten years, with basic maintenance appearing to have been overlooked, resulting in the need for a certain amount of renovation.


Double front doors with an attractive geometric panel design, a feature replicated throughout the house, open into the large light filled reception hall with its marble floor and further double doors to the inner hall, the hub for most of the living accommodation.

High ceilings are featured throughout, which along with the extensive windows, create a light and airy ambience. Detailed ceiling cornices feature in both the drawing room and dining room, which are again accessed via double doors giving a feeling of grandeur.

Impressively the vast kitchen/family room benefits from fully retractable, double-glazed doors to one wall, encouraging a modern outdoor lifestyle.

The travertine floored, modern styled kitchen area, is home to a comprehensive range of painted, shaker style cupboards with marble work surfaces over and Bosch appliances, including a double oven, five ring gas hob and four ring electric hob. A large LPG stove provides a focal point to the family room which is a wonderful space for contemporary living.

The conservatory, overlooking the rear garden towards the magnificent view beyond, is a great place for relaxation.

The four main en suite bedrooms, all featuring bespoke wardrobes, are sensibly located within their own wing. The master bedroom suite includes a dressing room and enjoys fine views across the garden.


Self contained annexe
A further self-contained two-bedroom apartment, comprising a kitchen, living room with wood burning stove and garden room, would be ideal as extended family accommodation or as a guest suite.


Lower ground floor
The useful lower ground floor includes an office, with strong room, and a large games room. Considerable thought has been applied to the provision of the exceptional leisure complex which mainly features attractive travertine flooring throughout.

The indoor swimming pool area, with underfloor heating, is predominantly glazed with French doors opening onto the rear garden terrace whilst separate sauna and steam rooms provide the ultimate in luxury.

His and hers leading edge changing rooms are available, along with a welcoming gymnasium and utility room. Arley Wood House is a versatile family residence that offers outstanding, recreational facilities.


Exterior
A magnificent long and sweeping tree lined drive, with post and rail fencing, leads via elegant electrically operated gates to a large parking area.

A variety of mature specimen trees, including maple and fir, line the driveway, each offering their own variants of colours through the year, ensuring a glorious entrance.


The gardens and grounds
The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, which requires some renovation, and this has been created with a parkland feel, interspersed with numerous shrubs and trees. These include silver birch, cypress and fir, which provide a seamless connection to the far-reaching views beyond.

The lawns will need re-rolling as it would appear that horses have been used to keep the grass down more recently.

Electrically operated gates lead to a further parking area with a brick built, five bay garage and terraced barbecue area, which is now significantly overgrown behind brick walling.


The barn
A further concrete driveway leads off the main drive to a yard, the paddocks, pasture land and substantial steel framed barn, containing eight animal stables, electricity and a hay store.

There is also the benefit of a workshop with a sunken inspection pit.


Wayleaves, Easements and Rights of Way
The property will be sold subject to and with the benefit of all wayleaves, easements and rights of way whether mentioned within these particulars or not. A footpath runs along the boundary from the north heading southwest.


Services
Mains electricity and water. Private drainage. Oil fired central heating, LPG hob and stove. Air source heat pump (pool). Solar panels (hot water to utility room and pool showers).
