Here is a chance to buy a home that once belonged to arguably the most important man in Kidderminster.
Described as an Edwardian gentleman’s residence, the property in Comberton Road was built for the town Mayor in 1906.
Original features of the house have survived over the course of the last century, including a stained glass window above the rear staircase bearing the Mayoral Coat of Arms, the 24ft long Minton tiled reception hall and working servants bell board.
Eastwood Lodge would suit a family not only because of its size – it has five bedrooms – but because it is within walking distance of local schools, the railway station and Kidderminster town centre.
The living room is light and spacious with an open fireplace and Adam-style surround.
The dining room has a wooden strip boarded floor and open fireplace with marble fireplace.
A sizable kitchen is fitted with cream wall and base cabinets above a tiled floor and integrated gas double oven and hob. It has a butler’s pantry that is 12ft in length,
An attractive breakfast room makes an appealing place for morning meals and has a French-style log burner.
When it comes to relaxing, part of the original tandem garage has been turned into a 20ft games room. And a particularly impressive addition is the splendid conservatory at the back of the house which is being used as a full-sized snooker room. Other ground floor outbuildings include a tool store, toilet and a utility room.
A cellar accessed from the reception hall also provides valuable storage space.
The first floor has three double bedrooms. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and drawers , the second bedroom features an original fireplace with tiled surround and the third bedroom benefits from a vanity unit with basin and shower cubicle.
It also has a family bathroom with claw foot bath, toilet, pedestal basin, shower cubicle and in-built airing cupboard. There is another separate toilet.
On the second floor there are two more double bedrooms, each with wash hand basin and one with its own toilet.
At the front of Eastwood Lodge, an impressive driveway sweeps past lawns and shrubbery borders extending to the side of the property where there is a large patio with hot tub (available by separate negotiation).
Wrought iron gates lead through to an enclosed back garden with neat level lawn.
