Nestled within picturesque countryside is Wheelwrights House, an individual detached country home offered with no upward chain, benefitting from spacious and versatile accommodation, four superb double bedrooms and a generous half acre plot including a range of outbuildings. With the original build dating back to the 1620s King Charles Caroline era, this Grade II Listed home has resided within the same family since 1969 where it has been well cared for and restored over time, with the interiors showcasing a wealth of beautifully retained features including exposed beams, feature original windows and the historic Wheelwrights forge which is thought to date back to the late 1700s. The property features uncharacteristically tall (2m +) ceilings and has been refurbished in recent years to include restoration and replacement of many windows and doors and internal/external redecoration, with plenty of further potential offered to remodel the interiors to suit the next owners requirements of a self contained annexe or ‘work from home’ space.
The interiors comprise entrance hall, two spacious reception rooms and farmhouse kitchen with utility area, with two further reception rooms, a ground floor bedroom and bathroom with separate WC presenting ideal space to extend the existing living accommodation or to convert into a self contained annexe/home office suite. To the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom, with each bedroom extending to generous size and benefitting from fitted wardrobes and idyllic countryside views. Outside, the property lies within a generous and completely private half acre plot laid to cottage gardens, formal lawns, a gated driveway and an excellent range of brick outbuildings including two garages and two stables. From all sides open views can be appreciated over farmland and towards Cannock Chase and the property is serviced by oil fired central heating.
