In 1913 the prestigious architect dynasty ‘Weller & Sons’, who practiced in the city for over three centuries, were instructed to create ‘the finest house in Wolverhampton’ at Tettenhall Court after an earlier fire on the site. Their work was certainly a success; the unique 7-bedroom residence they designed has stood the test of time to provide a prime example of Tudor Revival architecture. Occupying a very desirable Tettenhall position upon one of the area’s most distinguished roads, Tettenhall Court is ideal for commuter travel and is only a short walk from the village’s picturesque Upper Green. Evocative of the finest sixteenth-century Tudor buildings, this astonishing pre-war property boasts an imposing frontage finished in miniature brick with stone-mullioned leaded windows, half-timbered gables and a partial castellated parapet, set behind forecourt parking. Arranged around a grand entrance hall, the internal accommodation is of superior proportions and includes three distinctive reception rooms. Across the entire property, most rooms enjoy original architectural features and fireplaces; the beautiful lounge boasts a domed ceiling light of sumptuous colour and a historical frieze portraying Anglo-Saxon city founder Lady Wulfruna. The modern breakfast kitchen is served by a separate laundry, second kitchen and substantial cellaring. The galleried landing passes a spacious study, a capacious guest suite and five additional double bedrooms. Four house bathrooms are distributed across the ground and first floors and the principal suite is located on the second floor, having a well-appointed dressing area and en suite. The property sits within extensive landscaped grounds of around an acre, including a gated courtyard and double garage with a large first-floor store-room, which could potentially be converted.
