Park Mount in Stourbridge Road, Wombourne, West Midlands, has undergone quite a transformation in the past few years.
It used to be a residential care home until being granted a change of use to a family home.
The working has been completed to stunning effect. The house dates back to the early-mid 19th century and is in Italianate style with elongated windows and classical proportions.
It is a white stone faced, central three storey property with a pyramidal roof.
The crisp colouring of the exterior is reflected inside. This combines with the large windows and glazed doors to fill the rooms with light.
Park Mount is approached through private electrically operated wrought iron gates up a short drive flanked by mature beech trees, their lush green leaves making the colour of the house stand out even more.
It has its own paddock and new stable block to the left.
The private drive leads on to a central sweep with ample parking in front of the house where steps between a neat terraced lawn makes a suitably grand entrance.
Inside an elegant hall has wonderful cornicing and a highly polished marble floor.
To the left is the well proportioned dining room which has an Adam style fireplace and two pairs of French windows to the extensive gardens.
On the right is a panelled study office, which might also be suitable as a library.
The kitchen has been hand-built. It features a Rangemaster cooker under an ornate panelled surround, integral American fridge, microwave, dishwasher and electric cooker.
A back door leads to the rear courtyard. A utility room has a marble top with a built-in Belfast sink and washing machine beneath.
There is a cloakroom with basin and marbled surround, a large vanity mirror under ornate carved surround and glass cupboard to either side, and a toilet.
Steps lead down to a large tanked cellar with main cellar and two smaller chambers.
Leading off the kitchen is the fine drawing room with two large French windows opening out to the garden and a classic Adam style fireplace.
One of the most attractive features of the house is the beautiful orangery with mellow limestone floor, three sets of glazed double doors with fanlights above and three roof lanterns.
The former billiard room has been transformed into a fabulous entertaining room that is somewhat reminiscent of a modern gentlemen’s club, complete with bar, wine cellar, a wine fridge and large 80inch recessed television within a built-in surround. It too has French windows out to the garden.
An elegant wrought iron staircase leads to a large light landing area with large skywell. Off this there are five principal bedrooms.
The master suite has an en suite bathroom with bath, shower, toilet, basin and separate integral dressing room.
The main guest bedroom faces south over the garden. It has a similar high quality bathroom with bath, shower and two basins.
There are three further guest bedrooms, each with their own en suites including shower, toilet and basin.
On the second floor there is a large landing area with three further attic bedrooms.
An integral part of the house is The Cottage which can either be fully incorporated or used as a guest/staff flat. It has separate access points from both the courtyard and the back garden. Inside there is a reception room, large modern kitchen with granite top and dining area, downstairs cloakroom with toilet and basin, and two bedrooms with en suites.
The gardens and grounds extend to about 6.5 acres. They have a wonderful array of mature trees including numerous beeches, copper beech, yew, oak and acacia. Care has been taken with the landscaping of the gardens to ensure that while complementing the elegance of the house, they are also practical and easy to maintain, with large lawns.
There is ample space for either a hard or grass tennis court within the gardens.
The grounds also include two paddocks and a new stable block.
Park Mount is situated close to Wombourne, a large village located on the edge of the West Midland conurbation. St Benedicts Church sits in the centre of the village, which has a number of independent shops, supermarket, restaurants and pubs.
The cricket, tennis and bowling clubs host regular cricket matches and are an integral part of the village. There are a number of highly regarded schools in the area including Blakeley Heath Primary School, St Benedicts Bishop Church of England School, Ounsdale High School, Wolverhampton Grammar School and Wolverhampton Girls School.
Transport links are mainly via the M5, M6/M6 toll and Wolverhampton train station.
