‘One of the best of the few surviving examples of large houses built in Tettenhall Wood in the mid 19th century’ Wolverhampton Archives.

A very special and prestigious property with tremendous kerb appeal, boasting many original architectural features, including a grandiose Italianate brick tower and beautiful stucco detailing. The striking exterior with its wide and imposing frontage and numerous distinctive chimneys, enjoying almost complete privacy from the lane courtesy of its position behind the old brick wall and sitting lower on the escarpment, is more than matched by the lovely interior. High ceilings with wonderful examples of period plaster work in the form of splendid detailed cornicings and ceiling roses, which is particularly noteworthy in the huge central hallway with majestic pillars and wide sweeping oak staircase and ornate wrought iron balustrade extending along a spectacular galleried landing and a continuous curved polished oak hand rail and carved oak stringer. Spacious accommodation branches off the spectacular arched corridor. It crosses the central reception hall which spans the width of the house and is dominated by the view framed by the plaster pillars onto the garden; the exact same layout including the magnificent pillars is mirrored upstairs. A succession of four generous sized reception rooms plus a wonderful orangery styled garden room, all characterised by huge windows, mostly sash and usually dual aspect, have a cohesive elegance whilst displaying their own individual character.

The period features are set off effortlessly by beautiful modern appointments of exceptional calibre. The bath and shower rooms showcasing the very best of Laufen sanitary wear and a minimalist ivory gloss kitchen with a laundry room of extravagant proportions and fittings, provide contemporary style with a superlative specification. Arguably the pièce de résistance and of gargantuan dimensions, is the ensuite bathroom; palatial is an understatement and the first impression is literally jaw dropping. An expanse of pristine white with a central elliptical tub under twinkling halogen lights is set off exquisitely by metallic shades in the mosaic tiling of the shower cubicle and the splash back behind the conical twin basins, affording a sumptuous and entrancing quality to this fabulous room. The interior design of the property, testament to the artistic flair and taste of the current owners, epitomises opulence at its most lavish in a restrained manner. Innovative Bisque radiators, luxury German appliances, and high gloss grey ceramic floor tiles produce a sleek seamless look which complement the depth and richness of original oak parquet flooring in the main hall, and polished walnut and rosewood in some other reception rooms. Farrow and Ball paintwork in chalky, muted shades adds to the ambience and produces, simultaneously, a period and a modern setting enhanced by sumptuous wool carpets in neutral shades. These together with exquisite window dressings and some of the furniture, all representing a huge amount of research and expense and achieving the ultimate ‘designer look’, are available under separate negotiation.

An impeccable and distinctive topiary garden fronting the house which reflects the precision in all aspects of Italian design with clean lines and sharp styling, interestingly complementing both the architectural exterior and the uncluttered, contemporary treatment of the interior, adds a further touch of elegance and class: continuing the architecture of the house formally into the garden, it sits well within the carefully crafted, curved stone retaining wall.

An excellent and important house of some considerable charm and character refurbished with a no expense spared protocol and a significant amount of creative expertise.
