Not just a period property, the 1930s art deco Woodland House in Blakedown, Kidderminster, Worcestershire is also a considerable build too.
Sat on the outskirts of the ‘sought after village’ of Blakedown on a tree-lined drive, the location is said to offer ‘the ambience of country life’, but with quick access to nearby towns and villages. So location could tick the box.
As for the house, that depends on what you think of the interior. The exterior is art deco excess, from the metal gate outside through to the extensive house behind it. It’s almost a deco-style stately home.
But it’s also a house that has been elaborately updated over the years. It looks like an expensive finish inside, but it does have a ‘look’ which might not be to everyone’s taste. Although with the asking price, that’s probably all academic.
But as we have said, you do get a lot of house here, as well as a few things you might not expect. On the ground floor, that includes a hallway with statement staircase, a drawing room, a good-sized dining room with oak floor, a sitting room, a modern (and luxury) breakfast kitchen, laundry room, a breakfast room that opens onto the sun terrace, a study fitted with Partners desks and the first surprise, an indoor pool with bespoke ambient lighting, home cinema, bar centre and ‘luxury’ changing facilities.
Further upstairs, you’ll find the master bedroom with walk-in closet, en-suite and garden views and four further double bedrooms with shower rooms. Outside, there are those gates (remote controlled apparently), a turning circle frontage, an integral double garage, a stable block with five loose boxes and a tack room and extensive formal gardens.
As we have hinted, this doesn’t come cheap, with a guide price of £1,550,000.
