Summary: A rare opportunity to purchase this truly unique, quintessentially British period property with huge potential.
Peterscourt is a truly exceptional family residence, arguably one of the best examples of late Victorian architecture in Barnt Green and also believed to have been built as a residence for Lord Windsor, later the Earl of Plymouth. Bursting with character features, the generous accommodation (amounting to 7,458 sq. ft spanning over four floors) also includes a self contained living space on the second floor. The property occupies an idyllic position surrounded by formal grounds and is located on one of Barnt Green's premier roads. OFFERED WITH NO ONWARD CHAIN.
Description: The internal accommodation has a practical and versatile layout and offers enormous flexibility for socialising and entertaining on a grand scale. The ground floor comprises: Enclosed entrance porch with stone flooring, palatial entrance hall with oak panelled walls, briquette fireplace and feature stained glass windows, formal dining room with oak fireplace and a dual aspect sitting room with window seat and carved oak fireplace. The impressive drawing room features an 'Art Deco' fireplace, mirrored wall and bay window seating area overlooking the rear garden. The breakfast kitchen boasts a four oven AGA and still retains it's original floor-to-ceiling display cupboards and servants call indicator box (in working order!). The kitchen leads to a rear hall (providing both external and cellar access) as well as a sizeable pantry and play room with built in cupboards and WC. The lower ground floor consists of several separate rooms, offering plenty of storage space and also houses the heating system.
A most impressive oak staircase leads from the hall to the first floor and passes a spectacular full length stained glass window. On the first floor there are four generously proportioned bedrooms, luxury bathroom, additional shower room with fitted cupboards, separate WC and an epic billiard room with grand vaulted ceiling.
The second floor comprises: Landing with fitted linen cupboard, two bedrooms (one with vanity basin), bathroom with adjacent walk in storage cupboard, kitchenette and lounge/bedroom seven. This floor could readily be converted back into bedrooms or instead used as a self contained two bedroom apartment, ideal for a growing or extended family, for running a business from home or separate annexe living.
Outside: Peterscourt is approached via a sweeping shared driveway with central island leading to the property's own private drive which offers extensive parking. The delightful rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn (continuing to the side of the property) and also features a patio area, fenced boundaries, an abundance of mature tree and shrubs, a courtyard area to the East wing with useful external store cupboard. The residence also boasts ownership of both the shared driveway and central island.
