The property is situated in a prominent setting on the edge of the popular village of Seisdon. The village has retained a charming character with some fine buildings displaying a most attractive mix of architectural styles.
Seisdon is ideally situated within unspoilt countryside and yet within convenient travelling distance of Wolverhampton, Telford, Stourbridge, Bridgnorth and surrounding areas. There are some local facilities within the village with more extensive shopping and other amenities nearby at Wombourne and Pattingham.
There are some highly regarded schools in the local area and easy access to the regional road network with M54, M6, M5 and M42 all reached in under half an hour. Nearest mainline rail services are from Wolverhampton with direct trains to London Euston from 1 hour 43 minutes.
The Elms is believed to have been originally constructed in the 1860s with a significant extension added in the 1970s to create the impressive house we see today. The Elms is constructed of traditional local brick with fine fenestration beneath pitched slate roofs and has remained in the same family ownership for over 40 years. The property has been exceptionally well maintained and comes with a generous range of outbuildings and impressive gardens and grounds ideally suited to family living.
The Elms offers expansive living accommodation with impressive ceiling heights, tall windows creating exceptional natural light inside and some fine period features throughout.
The property is entered from the front through a glazed vestibule to a stunning full height reception hall with elegant sweeping staircase rising to the first floor. From the large central hall you enter the dual aspect drawing room with feature fireplace which conveniently leads to a well-proportioned dining room with doors out to the garden and connecting door to the kitchen.
The kitchen/breakfast room is also accessed from the hallway with a well-appointed layout featuring bespoke units and an electric Aga. The kitchen also benefits from French doors out to the rear courtyard and gardens with a lovely view of this enchanting part of the garden from the breakfast room.
Adjoining the kitchen is a utility room, boot room and beautifully fitted pantry by Mark Wilkinson. There is also access to the wine cellar. From the reception hall, the other wing of the ground floor features a sitting room, cloakroom with separate WC and a full-size snooker room.
The beautiful staircase from the reception hall rises to a galleried first floor landing. The master bedroom benefits from a large walk-in dressing room, two private ‘his-and-hers’ shower rooms and lovely views over the grounds of The Elms towards the village.
There are five further bedrooms on the first floor, two having ensuite bath/shower rooms, a family bathroom and a library/study completes the accommodation
Gardens and Grounds
The impressive gardens and grounds, extending to just over 7 acres, are a particular feature of the property. Electrically operated entrance gates open to a sweeping mature tree lined driveway providing a wonderful approach and leading to a large parking area at the front of the house. There is an extensive lawned area to the front of the property interspersed with semi mature trees. The house stands perfectly within its grounds and the wrap-around gardens are beautifully maintained and include a number of lawned and planted areas as well as raised beds, mature trees, established shrubbery and kitchen garden. There is also a useful potting shed and traditional greenhouse.
Close to the house is located an original Victorian coach house with an office/hobby room above. This most attractive building previously had consent for full conversion into additional residential use so could make very useful secondary accommodation subject to obtaining the necessary consents. A large 3 bay car port and stores are also connected to the back of this building.
Privately situated to the rear of the house in a delightful, sheltered part of the gardens is a heated outdoor swimming pool together with a pool room having kitchen, shower and changing room. A superb feature of the gardens is a traditional bandstand which was originally from Ilfracombe and has been restored to its former glory.
Separately accessed from the main drive is a useful grass paddock and stable block ideally suited for private equestrian use.
