4 bedroom detached house for sale
Jacobs Ladder, Low Habberley, Kidderminster
- Land or Equestrian property
Built in the mid 1950s to embrace the new and exciting modernist architectural ideas of the time, Jacobs Ladder was primarily designed by a local businessman Mr H R Beakbane who instructed renowned local architect W H Godwin to bring his ideas to fruition.
Lying in this delightful green belt countryside location between Kidderminster and Trimpley, the property stands in around 3.7 acres of grounds to include extensive sweeping lawns, formal gardens and woodland adjoining the Habberley Valley Nature Reserve, with fine and far reaching views from this elevated position.
Set well back from the road behind a lengthy tarmacadam driveway, this distinctive and striking property offers spacious accommodation over two floors extending to approximately 2,361 sq. ft. Enormous potential exists to upgrade, re-plan and extend the house, (subject of course to the necessary planning consent). Alternatively the site would be considered suitable for demolition of the existing house and erection of a new replacement dwelling, again subject to the necessary planning consent.
The existing house offers most spacious accommodation currently arranged to include four bedrooms and two bathrooms together with laundry room, cloakroom, ground floor workshop and integral garage/store ( which could easily be converted to living space ) plus open plan kitchen and two excellent large reception rooms each with sliding patio doors opening on to the pool side terrace with south facing spectacular views beyond.
The master bedroom also has sliding patio doors out to the poolside, and has the benefit of a dressing room and bathroom en-suite.
The property has been in the same family ownership since new and is now to be sold for the very first time.
This is a truly unique opportunity to create a dream home in the most idyllic of positions.
