Property Description

Full description

An impressive, detached residence occupying one of the biggest plots within the area standing behind a fine and wide frontage with a carriage driveway and superb gardens to the rear.
The property offers well proportioned accommodation in its current format and there is ample opportunity for extensions to both ground and first floors to further enhance the scope of accommodation provided with Planning Permission already having been secured for extensions to create a self-contained annex

Location - Long Knowle Lane is a highly regarded address within the locality and this particular house stands in the preferred part of the road with a large rear garden which benefits from a pleasant south westerly aspect.

Comprehensive local amenities are available within Wednesfield and the Bentley Bridge Retail Park whilst Wolverhampton City Centre is within convenient travelling distance. Communications are excellent with the motorway network being accessible via the M54 (J1) which facilitates fast travel to Birmingham and the entire industrial West Midlands. Furthermore the area is well served by schooling in both sectors and lies within easy reach of New Cross Hospital.

Description - 61 Long Knowle Lane is one of the first houses to have been built on the road and therefore stands within an impressive plot which is believed to be the second largest on the street. The house has an attractive, gabled elevation with a full width canopy with ionic columns and it has a wide frontage to Long Knowle Lane with double gates leading to a carriage drive.

Planning Permission has been granted for extensions to one side to create an annex and the potential exists for the further enlargement of the property (subject to gaining all of the usual necessary consents) to both ground and first floors to create what would undoubtedly be one of the finest and most impressive dwellings within the area.

Accommodation - A tile hung PORCH with ionic column supports has a panelled front door with inset fanlight opening into the large RECEPTION HALL which provides a reception room in its own right with exposed wall timbering and beamed and raftered ceiling, a decorative brick fireplace with tiled hearth, fitted bar, wiring for wall lights, a double glazed and leaded window to the front and a large walk-in cloaks and storage cupboard. The LOUNGE is a large, through room with a light aspect with a double glazed and leaded window to the front together with double glazed patio doors and windows to the rear garden, a York stone fireplace with a living flame coal effect gas fire, double glazed and leaded windows to the side, coved ceiling and glazed double doors in a stone-framed arch opening into the DINING ROOM which has double glazed and leaded windows overlooking the rear garden, integrated ceiling lighting, dado rail, decorative wall mouldings, ceiling coving and a glazed door into the BREAKFAST KITCHEN with a double glazed and leaded window overlooking the rear garden, comprehensive range of wall and base mounted cupboards with roll top working surfaces with an integrated breakfast bar, space for a range style cooker with extraction chimney above, plumbing for a dishwasher, plumbing for a washing machine, tiled floor, part tiled walls, integrated ceiling lighting, a single glazed side door and secondary glazed and leaded side window and a door to a LARDER with a floor-mounted gas fired central heating boiler, fitted shelving and a single glazed and leaded window to the front.

An ornate staircase with wrought iron balustrading rises from the reception hall to the galleried LANDING with a double glazed and leaded window to the front elevation, dado rail and picture rail. The PRINCIPAL BEDROOM is a large double room with a light, triple aspect with double glazed and leaded windows to the front, side and rear and a decorative fireplace with tiled hearth and slips and carved surround with reeded columns. The SECOND BEDROOM is also a large double room with a light, triple aspect with double glazed and leaded windows to both the side and rear elevations and a decorative cast-iron fireplace, the THIRD BEDROOM is also a good room in size with a double glazed and leaded rear window, two built-in wardrobes and Parquet flooring. The BATHROOM has a coloured suite with panelled bath, pedestal basin, bidet, wc and a separate fully tiled shower, double glazed and leaded windows to the front and side and fully tiled walls.

Outside - 61 Long Knowle Lane stands in a particularly large plot with a wide frontage with a dual entrance carriage drive, accessed through two pairs of wrought iron gates, each set within brick pillars with a wrought iron courtesy gate to one side, a matured and screening central hedge and ample off street parking for several vehicles. A door leads to a covered side passage with a door to the kitchen and a substantial GARAGE BLOCK incorporating a large garage with wooden doors, decorative circular leaded front window, leaded window to the side, electric light and power and shelving with a courtesy door to an INNER LOBBY with an external door and a door to a BED / SITTING ROOM with a secondary glazed and leaded rear window, wall hung wash basin, tiled shower cubicle and separate WC.
