Classic country house in Staffordshire

Greenhills is a fine Grade II listed Victorian country house built in the 19th century. The property has been in the same family since 1927 and offers impressive, but manageable accommodation with light reception rooms, high moulded ceilings, original fireplaces, polished oak floors and sash windows.

Three elegant reception rooms lead off a striking hallway with its wonderful oak staircase, as does the library. The former servants’ wing now houses the sitting room, kitchen, and a large cellar.

Upstairs are seven bedrooms of great character including fireplaces and casement windows. Three family bathrooms occupy upstairs but en-suites could be created: a much loved family home, the property does require some updating.

Further to the main property, The Gate House is a similar property in style, has two reception rooms and three bedrooms, and is currently let on a short tenancy basis; the buyer could take vacant possession easily.

The Coach House offers garaging and flexible living space with potential to convert. The stable block includes stabling, a tack room and a feed room.

The gardens are beautifully landscaped, and a walled kitchen garden with fruit trees sits to the rear of the house; the established orchard lies to the front. Around 20 acres of parkland come with the property and consist of paddocks, pasture, arable and woodland.

Greenhills is located close to the villages of Oaken and Codsall, and Wolverhampton and Birmingham are within commuting distance. Codsall itself has excellent local amenities.

The guide price is £2m. For further information please contact Savills on 01952 239 500 or visit
