Property Snapshot

This sizeable and impressive family home was built in 1910, rich in Edwardian period details including sash windows and panelled doors throughout, a Minton tiled floor, cast-iron fireplaces, deep cornicing and skirting boards, intricate architectural mouldings and Stourbridge stained-glass. The accommodation is immaculately presented throughout, and all the rooms have been meticulously designed and decorated.

The property has been comprehensively updated to reflect modern family living and includes a recently installed kitchen diner, a spacious bathroom and the potential to create a second bathroom should it be required. The accommodation also caters for those who work from home as there is a fantastic study on the first floor.

Outside, the house sits centrally within its plot, with lawned areas to the front and borders to the front and side, which have been skilfully planted with a range of herbaceous perennials to create colour all year-round. To the rear of the property there is access to the garage, a gated storage area and a wisteria covered pergola perfect for outdoor dining and entertaining. The paved driveway allows for the parking of 2-3 cars.


Description
The Grove can be accessed via two entrances, one being the side entrance door and the other, the lesser used front entrance, both with original doors, vestibules, beautiful stained-glass leaded light windows and opening onto the most fabulous period hallway, which has a split-level staircase rising to the first floor and original Minton tiled flooring. Further features include picture rails, deep coving and exquisite corbel arches. The ground floor rooms radiate from this point.

The formal dining room is located to the front and is a lovely place to dine and relax with friends and family. This room includes deep coving, picture rails and skirting, corbel arches and a deep bay window overlooking the fore.

The sitting room is decorated in stunning period colours like many of the rooms in this home and includes an open fire with a slate hearth and a feature surround, many period features and dual aspect windows, one to the side and a deep bay window to the front with stained-glass panel detail.

To the rear of the property there is a lounge, again bursting with character and charm, with many period features. This wonderful room also has dual aspect windows, one to the side and one to the rear. A particular feature of this room are the two arched plaster recesses which frame two full-height doors with transom window panels above and opening to the patio and side garden.

The outstanding statement kitchen diner has been recently installed. The kitchen has base units in two complementary shades with solid wooden doors and drawers incorporating soft-closing with white marble style quartz work surfaces over and a bow-fronted ceramic Butler sink with drainer grooves to either side and a Perrin & Rowe mixer tap and hose tap. There are bespoke timber shelves with recessed lighting, a peninsular island and space for a 110cm Rangemaster style cooker. The kitchen includes superb pull-out larder units and space for a fridge freezer and space for a dishwasher.

The dining area has space for a table and chairs, pendant lighting and original full-height pine cupboards that provide incredible storage solutions. There is Jura limestone tiling to the floor with underfloor heating throughout the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen also features two sash windows to the side which flood the kitchen with natural light.

There is a fantastic walk-in pantry with tiling to four walls, continuation of the kitchen flooring, an internal window, original slate shelving and a range of hardwood shelves providing amazing storage and a door leads down to a useful cellar.

Leading off from the kitchen there is a useful utility room, which has matching wall and base units with work surfaces incorporating a stainless-steel sink unit with drainer and mixer tap, space and plumbing for domestic appliances and continuation of the flooring from the kitchen with underfloor heating. There is also brick effect tiling to the splashbacks, a heated chrome towel radiator and an obscure window to the side.

The back passageway with slate tiling throughout gives access to the rear garden and a useful cloakroom with a white suite comprising an enclosed WC, a wash hand basin, tiling to the splashbacks and flooring, an extractor fan and a double-glazed obscure window to the side.


First floor
From the magnificent hallway a staircase rises to the first-floor accommodation. The spacious landing has two windows, access to the sizeable part-boarded loft via a pull-down ladder and doors to the bedrooms and bathroom.

To the front of the property there are two large double bedrooms and a single bedroom. The larger bedrooms have period features including large sash windows to the front and one also has a window to the side and an ornamental cast-iron fireplace.

The single bedroom, currently used as a second office, has access to the loft space and a sash window to the fore with a window seat.

The remaining bedrooms are located on the side of the property, with plentiful features including ornamental cast-iron fire surrounds with decorative tiled hearths and sash windows.

The large, luxurious bathroom has been recently refurbished comprising a roll-top claw-foot free-standing bath (recently re-enamelled), a wash hand basin, a low-level WC, a sizeable walk-in shower enclosure by Kudos with a waterfall shower and additional handheld shower attachment, a full-height cupboard useful for storage and also housing the new Worcester Bosch combi-boiler and shelving. The taps, shower, WC and wash hand basin are from Burlington. There is also tiling to partial walls, Karndean flooring, a traditional towel rail incorporating a radiator and a part obscure sash window to the rear.

There is a useful study to the rear and a separate cloakroom with a low-level WC and a single-glazed obscure sash window to the side. Should a second bathroom be required, there is an ideal option of knocking through to the study to create a further bathroom.


Outside
The wraparound garden has an abundance of colour provided by the planting, trees and foliage. There is a manicured lawned area to the fore with wrought iron railings and a meandering block paved pathway with established planting to either side leading to the rear where there are two paved areas, one of which is undercover with a beautiful wisteria adorning a pergola. These areas are lovely spaces to relax in, unwind and dine alfresco. There is also courtesy lighting, outside power points, a tap and secure wrought iron gates to both sides of the property.

The sizeable garage has a pitched roof, plentiful storage to the rear and an electric door to the fore. There is parking to the side and front of the garage.
