Situated at the edge of Codsall village, close to open countryside, and yet 5 minutes walk to station and shops, this beautiful property exudes traditional English charm and true character recalling the ambiance of a bygone era.
The property is an exceptional example of the Tudor revival houses designed and constructed in the 1930’s by Major Kenneth Hutchinson Smith. Known for his distinctive use of reclaimed materials and time honoured building methods, yet constructed with a damp course and some cavity walls. The house was originally built for the local Codsall doctor from reclaimed timber and stone from Montgomery Castle, and original 16th century bricks from Bentley Hall with its connections to King Charles the second. The bewitching heavily timbered exterior features several carved impish gargoyles and fine leaded mullion windows. This delightful family house is entered from an imposing entrance porch with heavily studded oak front door. Leading off the entrance hall is a large dining room with impressive stone and herring bone brick beehive fireplace, a lounge with second fireplace and an excellent contemporary breakfast kitchen.
The first floor is arranged around a beautiful aged oak staircase and gallery landing providing a master bedroom with en-suite shower room, a spacious modern family bathroom, two further generous doubles and a sizeable single bedroom. Planning permission has previously been granted (now lapsed) for the extension of the first floor adding a further two bedrooms and bath room.
A connecting door from the hall offers access to a very large well appointed one bedroom annexe with a recently fitted stylish kitchen with fully integrated appliances, living area and a spacious bathroom. Entirely self contained, the annexe has a dedicated entrance off the driveway, and could represent considerable rental income or auxiliary family accommodation.
Delightful gardens surround the house. At the side of the property the ample driveway offers significant off street parking and a detached oak framed garage and carport.
