You might be forgiven for feeling a little topsy-turvy at 71, Hyperion Road. Built just over 10 years ago, this individual-designed property has the living accommodation “upside down”.
Enter the reception hall and you’ll find that you have to go downstairs to reach the bedrooms. However, thanks to terracing and steps, both floors have direct access to the rear garden.
The detached house is located in a very private location, tucked behind automatic gates, in this sought-after area of Stourton, which is just a short drive from Stourbridge town centre.
Although it is in a residential area, there is plenty of countryside on the doorstep to enjoy, and it is close to bridleways and country lanes as well as the tow paths of the South Staffordshire canal, while the A449 enables easy access to Worcester and Wolverhampton.
The agent describes it as an “exceptional family home, delivering on all fronts” and says that its top-spec fixtures and fittings put it in a class of its own.
So, what do you get for just over 3,000 sq ft of living space?
This modern home has four en-suite bedrooms, including an impressive master suite, two reception rooms and a cinema room.
The double height windows and Velux windows flood the reception hall with light, making it a grand entrance.
This is the upper ground floor and the hall opens on to an elegant living room, which has an Inglenook-style fireplace with gas log burning stove. French windows open on to the upper terrace that overlooks the rear garden.
The breakfast kitchen is big enough for a dining table and is well appointed with a range of high quality gloss white base and wall cupboards with corner carousels and vertical pull out storage, black range cooker with hood, space for an American-style fridge-freezer and dishwasher. French windows open to the upper terrace and there is a separate utility room.
The upper ground floor also accommodates the formal dining room, which has French windows on to the terrace and wide double doors from the hallway, extending the entertainment space, when needed.
A second en-suite bedroom completes the accommodation on this level.
The remaining bedrooms are on the lower ground floor. The master suite is particularly impressive and has a sitting area, plenty of storage and French windows that open on to the gardens.
The en-suite is of particular note with standalone bath, twin sinks and large, walk-in shower.
There are two further double rooms, both with built-in storage and high quality en suite facilities.
The final room on the lower ground floor is a cinema room/playroom. Again, it is finished to a high standard and the agents say that the technical equipment can also be bought by separate negotiation.
The home has an integral two-bay garage, which is used as a gym by the current owners, but there is plenty of parking space for vehicles at the front of the property.
The west-facing rear garden is very private, with trees all around and a walled border.
The rest is hard landscaped, making it low maintenance, and there are steps up to the upper floor terrace to the main reception rooms and kitchen.
