This substantial three storey family home, which offers well-proportioned accommodation of approximately 4,816 sq. ft including six double bedrooms, enjoys an elevated position boasting magnificent views over its grounds and across the rolling woodland landscape of the Lickeys and far onto the Clee and Clent Hills.
The entrance to the property boasts remote controlled wrought iron gates and the long sweeping driveway provides a most impressive approach to the property which is situated 182m (597 ft) above sea level. The brick paviour area to the fore allows parking for several vehicles and also leads to the Double Garage (with electric doors). A utility driveway leads off down to the present stable block, spinney and the paddock.
The internal accommodation has a practical and versatile layout with the majority of rooms enjoying views over the gardens and open countryside. Sunset Brow offers enormous flexibility, being set out over three floors, featuring a self-contained suite of rooms to the lower ground floor making the entire residence suitable for a growing or extended family, for annexe purposes (with its own entrance and parking facilities), for running a business from home and particularly for socialising and entertaining on a grand scale.
The Ground Floor comprises: Enclosed Porch, Grand Entrance Hall, Guest Cloakroom, Drawing Room with Superb Feature Fireplace and Two Sets of French Doors leading to the Viewing Balcony, Spacious Conservatory Overlooking the Gardens, Open Plan Snug/Family Room with Oak Beamed Ceiling and Feature Inglenook Fireplace leading to Country Style Breakfast Kitchen complete with Gas Fired AGA and Traditional Belfast Sink and Separate Formal Dining Room.
The First Floor Continues: Generous Landing - Offering Ample Room for Seating, Well Proportioned Master Bedroom with Feature Fireplace, Views Across the Fields and En Suite Bathroom with Roll Top Bath, Separate Shower Cubicle and His and Hers Hand Wash Basins, Second Bedroom - also with En Suite Bathroom, Two Further Double Bedrooms and Family Bathroom. All bedrooms on the first floor benefit from superb views of the Lickey and Clee Hills.
The Lower Ground Floor (with two separate access points) provides: Laundry Room, Secondary Kitchen, Two Double Bedrooms (both with En Suite Facilities) and Fantastic Games Room.
The extensive formal gardens enjoy a westerly aspect and are therefore positioned to enjoy delightful sunsets and views onto the Clee and Clent Hills. The gardens, paddock and bordering field extend to approximately 4.55 Acres and contain a wealth of features including spacious lawns, stocked borders, mature trees, fountains, dove cote, woodland walk and a fantastic collection of topiary. To the fore of the house is a splendid sun deck, adjoining the conservatory, offering an alfresco entertaining space.
Sunset Brow has excellent facilities which include a greenhouse, stable block incorporating two loose boxes and tack room and underground wine cellar (offering other multi-functional use) with two large rooms and its own entrance.
The property also enjoys the notable asset of planning permission for a two-storey refashioning of the northerly accommodation, dramatically altering the configuration. Please note, building was not pursued and planning approval elapsed in March 2013.
There is huge potential for further expansion (subject to necessary consent).
