Property Description

Full description

Downes and Daughters is proud to offer for sale, Spruce House, the three bedroom, three storey centre piece of this breathtaking development. A most unique and elegant dwelling has been created from the renovation and conversion of the existing Victorian Pumping Station of Hopwas Waterworks. Poised elegantly in front of Hopwas woods with a sprawling view of Staffordshire Countryside beneath it this really is a chance to purchase a piece of our industrial heritage. With historic preservation in mind Spruce has been finished to a high specification with many bespoke features throughout including secondary glazing shutters to all the original Victorian arch windows which have been painstakingly restored to their former beauty, an individually commissioned elevated bridge entry from Kitchen to Garden and the most spectacular third floor drawing room with no less than fourteen original windows on all four aspects. The property has been individually interior designed with a wealth of Designers Guild fabrics used throughout in addition to Ulf Moritz and Brian Yates wallpapers in principal rooms. Porcelanosa tiles compliment the contemporary design of the bathrooms and kitchen and oak doors and floors reinforce an overwhelming feeling of quality.

Second Floor -

Drawing Room - 8.43m'' x 5.00m'' (27'8'' x 16'5'') - Could this be the most unique drawing room in Staffordshire? It should certainly be a contender and pushes the descriptive ability of, even the most eloquent amongst us, to the limit. A quadruple aspect room of dwarfing proportions flooded by light from no less than 14 lovingly restored Victorian arched windows. The largest of which stand proudly on opposite elevations of the building rising from the floor to nearly 10ft in height. The enormity of these windows are strangely held in proportion by the 18ft ceiling height with an elegant arrangement of trusses beautifully lit up by the NO NO Glacier Chandeliers and a wealth of recessed uplighters loaded in to the original stone based beams on which the original steam driven beam engine would have run. When a softer lighting effect is needed all table lamps can be turned on from one switch through the 5 amp circuit. All of the above do their best to draw your attention from the real feature of this room. The views. Unrivalled access to the rolling backdrop of Staffordshire farm and woodland. The solid oak flooring and individually commissioned pewter finished balustrade are the icing on the cake and a plethora of chrome flush plate light switches, sockets and Cat 5 cabling will cater for todays internet and audio visual requirements.

Outside -

Approach - Set in an elevated position overlooking the rolling Staffordshire farmland the properties are set behind a set of wrought iron security gates operated on a video entry system from each dwelling. With guest parking in front of the buildings each property also benefits from its own private parking facilities. The parking for Spruce is found to the left of the property in front of its single garage. Three cars can comfortably be parked here.

Rear Courtyard - Leading directly from the Principal Bedroom Suite a level below the main landscaped garden. This terrace provides alternative outdoor space for private relaxation or entertaining. Walled on all sides with side access to parking and direct door to garage. York Stone effect slabs accentuate the feeling of history derived from a quick glance up to the imposing rear elevation. External lighting and outside tap, gate to drive and stairs rising to the main garden.

Garden - A simply stunning, low maintenance, landscaped garden cut from the rising woodland behind. A number of synthetic lawn stages provide plentiful seating areas surrounded by the most elegantly designed, lavishly stocked borders with an abundance of effect exterior lighting. Accessed from both the bridge to the kitchen and stone steps to the courtyard this elevated and secluded garden still benefits from views to the fore, woodland aspect to the rear and the
imposing rear elevation of the building itself.
