Staffordshire country house with woodland

Warren Hill was built in 1937 and is a well-built property; its attractive elevations and large windows are reminiscent of a Voysey style.

Accommodation is filled with character and the reception rooms are very attractive. The reception hall has an oak floor and impressive views over the garden; a fine drawing room has a large stone open fireplace while its large bay window to the south enjoys garden views, while the dining room has a stone fireplace and oak book shelves, and the sitting room leads off from the kitchen making this part of the house great for everyday living.

The kitchen itself has hand-painted decorative tiles behind picturing Warren Hill.

On the first floor the master bedroom suite has a large en-suite bathroom with cast iron roll top bath and a full length of wardrobes, and enjoys southerly views over the garden through its large windows.

The four other bedrooms are all doubles and enjoy impressive outlooks. They share a family bathroom which is fully fitted with a shower and separate bath.

Bordering the property and running all the way around it, is mature woodland which slopes away to the boundary, which have an array of bluebells and daffodils in the spring. Together, gardens and grounds come to just under ten acres.
