Occupying a enviable elevated position on quiet Grove Lane, just a short distance from both Tettenhall and Compton, this unique 4-bedroom detached house offers a wealth of well-preserved period character in an exceptionally tranquil location. Arranged around picturesque village greens and the iconic ‘paddling pool’, Tettenhall provides an excellent selection of independent retailers alongside larger nationwide chain stores and banking facilities. A very well-regarded choice of schooling is also available nearby, to both sectors, including the prestigious Tettenhall College, Wolverhampton Grammar and the respected Wolverhampton Girl’s High School, while Compton is within similarly easy reach at the bottom of the hill and offers further conveniently placed amenities. Sitting high above the Smestow Valley affording breathtaking views across the city below, the property is arguably one of west Wolverhampton’s best-kept secrets, unassuming from street-level but truly charming and peaceful once you step inside the boundaries of this large plot. Featuring delightful wooded gardens to the rear with a natural spring that gives the property its name, this magical family home dates back to the 1850s and includes a substantial 1920s extension in the distinctive Arts & Crafts style exemplified by nearby Wightwick Manor. The house really must be viewed in order to properly appreciate the peaceful ambience and period charm, including the original Crittall windows and French doors, fireplaces, parquet flooring, and beamed ceilings. Inside, the generously proportioned accommodation includes a hallway with quarry tiles and WC off, leading towards a beautifully appointed bespoke kitchen, fitted by Dayrooms. A sizeable cellar below offers additional storage and the ground floor includes an excellent living room, exuding timeless Victorian elegance coupled with a high-end contemporary Norwegian wood-burning stove. A dining room with open fire leads off, continuing towards the superb principal lounge, arranged around a traditional Arts & Crafts fireplace and a glorious bay window. The property boasts two staircases; the main stairwell is located in the older portion of the house and emerges on the first floor beside the large bathroom, separate WC, and stairs to the second floor. At the very top of the house, the second floor enjoys incredible, far-reaching views and encompasses two double bedrooms, wrapped around a washroom with great potential as a shared ‘Jack & Jill’ shower room. Within the later extension, the second staircase rises to a large landing ideal as a dressing room, games room, or office, with the luxuriously spacious master off. The master bedroom is truly delightful, benefitting from a wide window seat and a private balcony at the rear of the house; an inviting sun-trap overlooking the city below and the distant rolling countryside. A contemporary detached outbuilding is also available at the end of the garden; installed in 2019, this impressive space boasts gorgeous views of the house and gardens via bi-folding doors and provides a sense of privacy invaluable for home working. A large garage is also provided off the road, perched above the garden’s useful external stores, cut into the ancient rock face. Parking is also available before the automatic garage door.
