This handsome black and white timber framed property known as Wyre Court dates back to 1657 although there are historic references to the name Wyre Court as far back as medieval times, thought to have originated in 1165.

King John is believed to have stayed at the property many times when it was used as a hunting lodge and in more recent years the three times mayor of Bewdley, Henry Neal Frost, lived here from 1924 until 1957.

The property was converted into five apartments approximately 20 years ago with Flat 5, known as King Johns Rooms, situated on the second floor and including the central tower seen on the main photograph. This can be accessed via cabin stairs to provide one's own personal watchtower with windows to all four sides having suitably majestic views in all directions.

An absolutely stunning focal point of the accommodation is the magnificent living room with a wealth of exposed timbers, high pitched ceiling, fireplace with log burner on quarry tiled hearth and elaborate carved wooden overmantle.

The living room leads on to the oak fitted kitchen with integral electric oven, gas hob, hood and wall mounted gas fired "Worcester" central heating boiler.


A short staircase rises from the living room to the central landing with guest cloakroom and twin staircases each rising to the upper ground floor area.

There are three double bedrooms, the largest measuring 16'8" x 10'3" and having a large double glazed picture window to rear with far reaching views towards the grounds of Wharton Park Golf Club.

There is a large bathroom with strip boarded floor and suite to comprise panelled bath, pedestal hand basin, low level wc and further large window to rear elevation.

In addition to the second and third bedrooms there are also two sizeable under eaves storage rooms which could possibly be opened up, the largest measuring over 18ft in length.

A further delightful feature of the property is the roof top garden accessed off the upper landing which provides a wonderful and secluded sitting out area with wrought iron ballustrading and distant views towards Trimpley.

Additionally a gravelled patio to the front of the building next to the wrought iron railings is also owned by King Johns Rooms.

To the rear of the property there is a residents car parking area with two parking spaces owned by Flat 5.

Mains gas, water, electricity and drainage are all connected. Council Tax is Band D (Wyre Forest District Council). Following conversion of the building to apartments circa 1994, an original 99 year lease was granted to each plat. However the freehold is owned and administered by the residents jointly owned management company ( Wyre Court Management Company Limited ) and it is understood that the original lease has been replaced by a commonhold arrangement by each individual flat owns a share of the freehold with a simple monthly ground rent currently £79.81 payable in respect of maintenance of communal areas and block buildings insurance.

King Johns Rooms provides a rare opportunity to acquire a fascinating slice of history with an abundance of space, character and, not least, those royal connections. Viewing is considered essential.
