THE PROPERTY

Set in the heart of rural Staffordshire, this beautiful and substantial property will make an ideal long-term family home for the next buyers. Readers will have noted that the property is semi-detached however this is instantly forgettable on arrival as the house has the look and feel of a grand detached home. The property begins from Cumberledge Hill with a long and wide gravel driveway that has a tree in the centre that serves as a turning circle for cars. There’s certainly no need to reverse from your drive here. The driveway is complimented by shrubs and hedgerows to the borders and has a short lawn near the beginning to the left. There is also a secluded bin storage area by the lawn.

Viewers will enter the home via a good-sized porch which makes the removal of coats and shoes easy. A secondary door then leads into the main hallway, where the tone of the property really begins to sink in. There is the traditional staircase with banister and a delightful arched window providing natural light into the hallway whereas the doors are of a modern glass panel style – this home has character with a contemporary twist that viewers will love.

Moving through the door to the left brings viewers into a lovely dining room. At present the room comfortably holds a six seater dining table but, as the photos suggest, an eight or ten seater would work well. The character in this room is enhanced by a charming chimney breast with a feature wooden mantle piece and a leaded double glazed window to the front, of which there are many throughout the house. To the rear of the dining room is an opening through to a fabulous large conservatory that viewers will not be able to help but be impressed by. Not only is the room impressive but the outlook over the rear garden. Also of note in the conservatory are the solid tiled roof, the French doors leading out to the patio and the high quality flooring.

Moving back through the hallway to the front of the house is the lounge. A marvellous place to unwind, the lounge features a bay window to the front and a beautiful cast iron fireplace with wooden surround. There is plenty of room in here for a sofa suite and other furniture, especially with the TV (not included) being mounted onto the wall. The final room from the hallway is the breakfast room which leads through to the kitchen. This third reception room (fourth if you count the conservatory) is presented using the same suite as the kitchen and utility room, with stylish hi-gloss black units complimented by solid work surfaces. There would be ample space for a six seater breakfast table in the centre of the room if desired, and there is another exit to the rear patio via a set of French doors.

Next is the kitchen, where viewers will love that it has been opened through to create a matching utility room, borrowing a large proportion of, what was, the garage. The kitchen section to the rear of the room continues with the hi-gloss black suite and has a space for a large range oven. There is plenty of cupboard space for utensils and food store and the units also incorporate a built in dishwasher. To the rear left is a large cupboard, ideal for a pantry and a full height window for natural light.

There is a composite sink and drainer in both the kitchen and the utility, with the utility also having space (and plumbing) for a washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge freezer. Furthermore, from the utility room there is also a door into a welcome ground floor wc, a welcome addition made by the current owners, and a door through to what remains of the integral garage. The garage has a depth of almost five feet and therefore serves well for storage needs.

The first floor begins with a bright and open landing area that has the aforementioned narrow-arched window to the rear wall and a larger window to the front. The nearest door to the far left of the house is for bedroom two which is directly over the dining room and shares the same dimensions, thus making an excellent sized double bedroom. As you move to the right of the house, the landing becomes a corridor with doors off to the remaining three bedrooms and the family bathroom, aswell as being wide enough to have furniture such as bookcases. The splendid family bathroom is so large that is holds a large free-standing bathtub to the left, a corner shower cubicle to the right, wash basin and toilet aswell as having a wide open space in the centre.

All the bedrooms are double size, with bedroom one being above the lounge and the lounge and therefore benefitting from a lovely bay window. Bedrooms three and four at the end of the corridor are a similar size and both have a recess behind the door, making an ideal space for wardrobes. This leaves both rooms open for a bed and whatever furniture you may require, such as a desk or sofa. The views of the countryside to the front of the house are arguably more picturesque than those of the rear, and this is no more evident than the view from bedroom four at the front (as depicted in the photos).

Finishing outside, the fabulous garden begins from the house with a seated patio area. As the house is elevated from the rear garden, part of the patio serves as a balcony overlooking the countryside to rear and therefore provides a wonderful spot to read the morning newspaper or even an evening tipple!! There are then steps down to the main level of the garden. Mainly a vast expanse of lawn, the garden has many shrubs to the borders and serves as a blank canvas for keen gardeners or an excellent space for children to play and families to be entertained.

TRANSPORT LINKS

Cumberledge Hill is really well positioned for commuters as within 10 minutes by car drivers can get to the A5 at either Norton Canes or Brownhills and the M6 Toll at Burntwood. In 15 minutes drivers could reach the M6 at Cannock. There are also many rural shortcuts, making rush hour a breeze, to local towns and cities such as Lichfield, Burntwood and Hednesford.

The nearest railway station to the home is at Hednesford, around a 10 minute drive.  The station is located on the Chase Line which runs from Rugeley Trent Valley to Birmingham New Street, passing through Cannock and Walsall. Taking the longer journey to Lichfield would provide train users with access to the West Coast Main Line for journeys to London and Liverpool, amongst many others.

Bus users will be delighted that there is a regular service that stops on Cumberledge Hill. This is the main Cannock to Lichfield service that also makes stops in Hednesford and Burntwood.

SCHOOLS & AMENITIES

At present the Staffordshire Schools website isn’t naming a catchment secondary school although we are under the belief that it is Chase Terrace Technology College which holds an Good (2) Rating from its latest Ofsted assessment. The primary school is listed as Gentleshaw Primary which is just 0.6 miles from this home. Although we have done our best to research this information, it is highly recommended that parents check with the local authority to confirm catchment.

In the centre of Cannock Wood village, on the junction between Buds Road and Sycamore Hill is a handy convenience store, ideal for when running short of a loaf of bread or pint of milk. For a greater shop, Burntwood has the nearest supermarket, whereas Cannock, Lichfield and Rugeley have plenty more to offer. Burntwood is also home to a large leisure centre.

Cannock Wood is located on the border of Cannock Chase national park AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and therefore this opens up recreational activities such as walking, running, cycling and riding. Nearby is the historic monument of Castle Ring which has stunning views towards north Staffordshire and Derbyshire
