Wightwick, situated on the furthest western edge of Wolverhampton, close to open countryside and a world away from the hustle and bustle of the busy centre, is well-regarded as probably the most prestigious quarter of the city. It is also the location of glorious Wightwick Manor, a fine, late Victorian Arts & Crafts house; yet within the shadow of this National Trust property lies Long Knowle, a private residence and family home which is also worthy of note as a truly magnificent triumph of early-20th century Black Country skill and ingenuity. Meticulously crafted in 1936 by J.R. Woodisse, a renowned local artisan builder, the property is constructed using a selection of original materials and timbers dating from between the 14th century and the Elizabethan era, rescued from ancient buildings throughout the surrounding area. The design is based upon the traditional timber framing and construction techniques of historic Tudor and Elizabethan homes, featuring beautiful leaded, mullioned windows, open fireplaces, gorgeous timber beams and panelling which recall a bygone world. Surrounded by beautiful grounds, a large garden is positioned to the rear of Long Knowle’s exceptionally pretty, fairy-tale cottage frontage, with a capacious circular driveway to the front. Two formal reception rooms are available on the ground floor, beside the large breakfast kitchen with service rooms off, and the property boasts planning permission for the construction of a triple garage with annex accommodation above, in addition to a further extension at the side of the property. The stunning and spacious master suite, with a dressing room or study off and en suite facilities, is tucked away on the second-floor beneath the steep pitch of the roof, and four further double bedrooms including one en suite are located across the first floor.
