Sold STC £495,000
Full descriptionA substantial detached house of enormous charm and character standing in a lovely plot in the centre of a sought after South Staffordshire village.
The property was previously used as two independent residences and could either be used in that format
or it could equally be utilised as one substantial family home of merit and note
Location - Holly Cottage stands in a prominent position at the very heart of Brewood which is an historic South Staffordshire village with a picturesque centre set around an old market square. Brewood has a full complement of local shopping facilities which are more than ample for everyday needs and there is easy access to the further and more comprehensive facilities afforded by Codsall, Wolverhampton and Stafford.
The village has a thriving and active community and benefits from excellent schooling with a multitude of schools of high repute in both sectors being easily accessible with St Dominic's High School and Brewood First and Middle Schools being in the village itself.
Description - Holly Cottage is a substantial detached property with an attractive black and white part-timbered elevation which occupies a generous plot in the centre of the village.
The house offers extensive accommodation with a high degree of flexibility of use and can easily be modelled to suit various different lifestyles. Previously the house has been used as two independent residences, each with their own front door and private facilities and the current sellers previously lived in the larger part of the house with the parents living in the smaller section. The house is still set up to cater for this use but, equally, could easily be used as one large house in its own right. Holly Cottage is generally well appointed internally with neutral dcor and it benefits from gas fired central heating and double glazed windows.
One of the features of the property, bearing in mind its central village location, is that it benefits from a charming garden to the rear and, importantly, extensive parking and a garage to the front.
Accommodation - A pathway laid in brick paviours leads to the front door which opens into the PORCH with double glazed windows to two elevations, exposed wall and ceiling timbering and a ledged door opening into the LOUNGE which is a room of excellent proportions with a light through aspect with two double glazed bow windows to the front together with a double glazed window to the rear, a heavily beamed and raftered ceiling, a cast iron solid fuel burning stove set within a recessed fireplace with quarry tiled hearth, decorative timbered book and display shelving, wiring for wall lights and a door into the DINING ROOM which, again, is a room of some depth, with a double glazed window to the front, cast iron Coalbrookdale style fireplace and wiring for wall lights. An INNER HALL has a useful and large, walk-in cloaks and storage cupboard with quarry tiled floor, shelving and single glazed window and there is a BREAKFAST KITCHEN with a full range of wall and base mounted cupboards, a stainless steel Hotpoint four-ring gas hob with filtration unit above, inset stainless steel Hotpoint electric oven and microwave/second oven, plumbing for a dishwasher, a double glazed bow window overlooking the rear garden, beamed and raftered ceiling and a large informal dining area with raftered ceiling, double glazed French doors to the rear garden and a large pantry with quarry tiled floor and fitted shelving. A glazed door from the kitchen leads to a LAUNDRY with a range of wall and base mounted contemporary units, stainless steel sink, plumbing for a washing machine, double glazed door to the garden, tiled floor and a door to the well appointed guest CLOAKROOM with a recently re-fitted contemporary white suite of wc and wall hung washbasin with tiled splashback.
A glazed door from the laundry opens into what was originally the smaller of the two residences with a large BREAKFAST KITCHEN with a comprehensive range of wall and base mounted panelled units, an inset four-ring electric hob with filtration unit above, a sink unit, raftered ceiling and double glazed French doors to the rear garden together with panelled double doors opening into the SITTING ROOM with an exposed brick fireplace with shelving to either side and stone hearth, walk-in double glazed bay window to the front, raftered ceiling and door opening into the STAIRCASE HALL which was originally a separate entrance to the house.
The principal staircase rises to the first floor LANDING with ample space for a study area with a double glazed window overlooking the rear gardens. There are THREE GOOD SIZED DOUBLE BEDROOMS in what was the larger house when the cottage was two independent residences, all of which have double glazed windows together with a recently re-appointed BATHROOM with a contemporary white suite with a panelled bath with mixer tap with shower attachment, pedestal basin and wc, fully tiled walls, a chrome ladder towel rail radiator, shaver point and a double glazed and leaded rear window, a SHOWER ROOM with a fully tiled shower, pedestal basin and wc, tiled walls and a double glazed window and a separate SAUNA. A door from the third bedroom opens onto a SMALL LANDING with the secondary back staircase leading down to the sitting room, a large walk-in airing cupboard with slatted shelving and a DOUBLE BEDROOM with a double glazed window to the front, a large range of built-in wardrobes, cast iron fireplace, double glazed window and a door into an ENSUITE SHOWER ROOM with a well appointed white suite of a pedestal basin and wc together with a fully tiled double shower, fully tiled walls, towel rail radiator and a double glazed and leaded window.
Outside - Holly Cottage stands behind a glorious frontage with a gravelled driveway providing ample off street parking for several vehicles. There are stocked and mature beds and borders and a GARAGE to the side with light and power.
To the rear of the property is a superbly landscaped REAR GARDEN with an extensive paved patio with steps leading down to a sunken paved terrace with well stocked and mature borders to either side, a large ornamental garden pond with water feature, shaped lawn and well stocked beds and borders. There is a detached brick and tile GARDEN ROOM which could be utilised for a multitude of different purposes including home office, gym or playroom with a barbecue terrace to the rear and storage cupboard.
Nb - Holly Cottage enjoys a lovely position in the village adjacent to the open spaces of St Dominic's High School playing fields, a quality and well-run independent school. There is an historic Right of Way across part of the driveway in favour of St Dominic's to access their grounds although we understand from the current sellers that this Right of Way has not been exercised for in excess of 15 years.
