The work of the plasterers belonging to the renowned Bromsgrove Guild is on display in this fine Victorian house in Bromsgrove.
Dating back to 1887, the residence on Cedar Drive was the home of a local solicitor, Walter H Scott, of Scotts Holt and Sellars, until 1943.
Ornate plasterwork decorates the ceiling in both the hallway, drawing room and the sitting room.
It is an elegant house with many period touches remaining.
The porch and entrance are to the side of the house and lead into a hallway that has slate flooring and ceiling mouldings.
The magnificent formal drawing room has lovely high ceilings with moulded plasterwork and a marble fireplace with a copper insert. A floor to ceiling arched window has French doors opening onto the terrace.
A less formal sitting room is currently being used as a study.
Combined in one large L-shaped space are the kitchen, family room and dining room . In the kitchen area, hand painted Shaker-style cabinets with maple worktops surround the twin Belfast sinks, which are set in black granite, and a substantial Lacanche dual fuel range. It also has access to a deep pantry.
The first and second floor offer six bedrooms. The master overlooks the gardens and school playing fields.
In the guest bedroom there is more intricate ceiling moulding as well as a charming en suite bathroom. A house bathroom on this floor has both a bath and separate shower. There is a separate toilet.
On the top floor, the two double bedrooms have a shower room between them.
A discreet and private side garden is set behind a laurel hedge and has a flower bed set out as a raised sun terrace with steps down to a shaped lawn.
At the back of the house there are more shaped flower borders, a rose walk which divides the garden in two, an orchard producing apples and pears, a vegetable patch and a formal lawn.
The garden is south facing and private with a playing field and track next to it.
Cedar Drive is a secluded, unadopted road just off New Road.
