This hugely impressive Victorian house is situated in a highly regarded tree-lined avenue, conveniently situated for access to town centre amenities within little more than ten minutes walk of the railway station and good schools including Holy Trinity Free School, King Charles and St Ambrose Catholic Primary.

The property was originally built in 1892 for Charles Hodges, a wealthy local maltster with premises in Churchfields whose prosperity was confirmed by the inclusion of a turreted roof which has the added distinction of creating a hexagonal corner bay to the rear of the dining room and third bedroom above.

The house retains many original features including a splendid 26' long Minton tiled reception hall complete with servants' bell board, whilst front windows all feature opening wooden framed sash windows and the gardens include the original brick stable building with tiled roof.

This is a particularly handsome property, set back from the road behind a neat block paved driveway having twin brick pillared entrance and shrubbery edging.

Substantial extensions were added some years ago, to the rear and also to the side where there is a double garage and extensive two storey ancillary accommodation behind and above, all accessible from inside the main residence but having clear potential to reconfigure for a variety of uses including a substantial home office/ work space in addition to a self contained suite of rooms ideal as living accommodation for a dependent relative or older child still at home.

Above all the principal accommodation provides a fine family home with an abundance of space and character, laid out in classic style with the central reception hall having doors radiating off to a variety of separate reception rooms, as well as to the guest cloakroom with wc and hand basin. A further door off the hall gives access to the cellar.

The elegant drawing room features 10' ceilings, a sash bay window plus cast iron feature fireplace in marble surround, together with original bell pull.

Double doors lead through to the splendid formal dining room with beams to ceiling, turret bay, decorative wooden wall panelling and cast iron fireplace with picture tiled surround and gas fire

Also at the front of the house is the family lounge, again with sash bay window and feature fireplace, whilst double doors lead through to a separate study.

To the rear of the house is a wonderful open plan kitchen/ dining/ family sitting room, the whole space measuring just over 29' wide x 19' (max). This area really forms the hub of the home, with the sitting room having sliding patio doors out to the garden and ample space for a dining table and chairs.

The open plan kitchen area (20'7 x 9'2 ) has a central island unit with granite work surface and a cream coloured range of cabinets complemented by wooden work surfaces, a Belfast double sink and two-oven Aga plus integral fridge & freezer.

From here a door leads through to a large utility room with a further range of cabinets, work surfaces and sink unit, plus recessed laundry appliance area.

Also off the kitchen, a door to the rear leads through into the ancillary accommodation, comprising three open plan connecting rooms (presently arranged as gym, garden room with patio doors & hobbies room) plus additional WC, second utility room with door into garage, plus a lobby area with staircase to the corresponding first floor space above.

This is currently arranged to provide a large double bedroom with inbuilt wardrobes, together with a modern kitchen, well appointed bathroom and a most spacious lounge area (18'6 x 15'1 ).

Whilst integral to the overall property, this part of the house is presently configured to be separate from the principal accommodation, providing an ideal degree of privacy for an older child or dependent relative to enjoy their own space.

The main part of the house also provides six bedrooms to the first floor, including sash bay windows to both front facing bedrooms and an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom, with pedestal hand basin, low level wc and cubicle with mixer shower.

The principal family bathroom is of excellent proportions, featuring electric underfloor heating, floor tiling and wall tiling to half height, with suite comprising clawfoot bathtub, pedestal hand basin, low level wc and double cubicle with mixer shower.

The first floor gallery landing is in itself an impressive feature of the house, measuring almost 30' in length with sash window to front and boiler cupboard to the rear, housing the Worcester Bosch gas fired central heating boiler which serves the main accommodation, the ancillary accommodation being heated by a separate boiler. A further cupboard on the landing can be opened up to provide direct access into the ancillary area if required.

Outside, the gardens are also a most attractive feature of the property, with full width patio giving way to extensive lawns with conifer hedged boundary, garden shed, playhouse and the original brick stables belonging to the house, which have the benefit of a power supply and lighting.

Mains gas, electricity, metered water and drainage are all connected, with council tax payable to Wyre Forest District Council, rated as Band G.

This is truly one of Kidderminster's finest houses which simply must be seen in person to appreciate the size and calibre of the accommodation on offer.
