Originally a malt house, Pedmore Lodge has been cleverly converted to create a six-bedroom home with some unusual architectural quirks.
The malt house in Pedmore Lane, Pedmore, Stourbridge, was built around 1845 and had further additions some 30 years later.
Living space is now over three floors, with extremely useful cellarage. In addition to the main house there is leisure space in the outbuildings which include a French-style summerhouse.
The Lodge has an impressive entrance hall dominated by the handsome staircase.
In the drawing room there is oak flooring, Portuguese limestone fire surround with Faber inset fire and French doors to the garden.
The fine formal dining room has an open fireplace and views of the gardens.
The library/orangery has a bay window with window seat, oak flooring and fitted bookshelves and cupboards.
A country style kitchen is divided into separate kitchen and dining areas with an exposed brick archway between.
There is a comprehensive range of pine units and maple worktops, a four oven AGA, double inset French porcelain sink and a range of appliance spaces.
Doors from the dining area open on to the garden terrace while from the kitchen there is a rear hall with separate toilet and doors to the garden.
What was once Pedmore Lodge’s flower room with original butler’s pantry sink is now a laundry room/pantry with halogen hob and integrated dishwasher.
Downstairs the cellar is separated into two rooms. The smaller is a workshop, while the larger is ideal for storage or use as a studio.
First floor accommodation includes an unusual landing with lantern roof and display area.
There are four spacious bedrooms. The master has an en suite bathroom with stylish suite and there are two further bathrooms, one with Jacuzzi bath. All of them have power showers.
A separate staircase rises to the second floor which was previously used as a self-contained apartment. This currently comprises a sitting room with luggage area, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. It could be incorporated into the property to provide further bedrooms, if required.
Outbuildings include a garage and coach house that is configured as a tandem garage with two traditional arched windows. There is a staircase to a hayloft.
A summerhouse with two sets of French doors to the garden and reclaimed quarry tile floor makes an excellent space for entertaining.
Subject to planning, the coach house, summerhouse and hayloft could possibly be turned into a separate dwelling.
Outside are immaculate private gardens that are mainly laid to lawn with established beds and borders.
There are a large variety of specimen trees including espanier, conference pear, hazelnut, walnut, kiwi and an ancient wisteria.
There is also a pretty sheltered courtyard garden on the south side with steps up to a lawned area and walled garden.
Pedmore is situated on the southern edge of Stourbridge, well placed for the centres of both Stourbridge and Hagley.
It is an attractive residential area with a good selection of schools and transport links by road and rail.
It is close to Stourbridge Golf Club, Stourbridge Lawn Tennis Club and open countryside.
