Set in an idyllic, picture-perfect rural position only 15 minutes from both Wolverhampton, The Dairy House offers tranquil country house living in an unusually convenient position. Surrounded by glorious Shropshire countryside, this exceptionally elegant, Grade-II listed 4-bedroom detached country house is within a short distance of nearby villages, including Claverley and Worfield, both providing good primary schools. Wombourne is a larger established village to the east, offering considerable amenities and schooling to all levels, in addition to the extensive independent options located close at hand. Commuters are also well-catered for, with the Black Country conurbation in close proximity and the M54, M6, and A5 all within easy reach. Dating from the mid-1800s but retaining a period-style ambience, the property boasts generous proportions and timeless elegance throughout, combining to create a wonderful family home. Off the welcoming hallway, laid with parquet flooring, the beautiful, light drawing room is arranged around a stunning bay window and a wood-burning stove, with double doors to the large, beamed dining room. A comfortable second sitting room, office, or playroom is also available, offering a door to a patio overlooking the grounds. Also on the ground floor, the traditional farmhouse kitchen features an Aga range and excellent handmade units, constructed in solid timber and granite, while a substantial utility or boot room is located off. Considerable dry wine cellaring is also provided, with capacity for over 200 bottles. Upstairs, the master bedroom is of a magnificent size with a large bay window to match the drawing room below, leading onto a spacious en suite. Three further bedrooms and a bathroom are also available on the first floor.
Within the grounds, automatic gates open to an ample parking area between two outbuildings, representing considerable investment potential. One comprises a double car port, storeroom, and separate wood store, whilst the larger is a beautiful period barn with rustic beams and current planning permission (22/04889/FUL & 22/04890/LBC) for conversion to a 3-bedroom detached residence. Currently, this barn provides a vast, 42ft storage space and a double garage. The adjacent workshop, formerly a servant’s cottage, provides additional space for conversion and retains the original brick fireplace beneath an impressively high ceiling. With considerable character and plenty of space, plans for this luxurious proposed dwelling include three bedrooms, a bathroom, a sizeable kitchen, and a dining area. Within the footprint of the old cottage, the proposed lounge would be of an excellent size, affording views over the property’s grounds and the adjacent lake and parkland of historic Spectacular Grade I listed Ludstone Hall. Gardens envelop the property to the three other elevations, landscaped by award-winning garden designer and writer Percy Cane. Encompassing sweeping lawns, comprehensive planting, and wooded areas, the gardens are wonderful for children to explore, and enjoy incredible views over the lake and the serene landscape.
