Property description

The Elizabethan Suite is the principal ground floor portion of Westwood House with exclusive access through the main entrance from the formal front drive. The accommodation is extremely versatile with the rooms tailored to the present owners but future requirements could be adapted to suit an incoming purchaser; the current owners have also refurbished the basement and applied for the necessary permissions to create additional accommodation in the lower ground floor of the Eastern wing. There is also a proposal to create an additional dwelling, consisting of the upper and lower ground floors in the Southern wing; this would be self-contained and utilise an existing access. Currently the accommodation is arranged around the magnificent Banqueting Hall, with a massive open fireplace, limestone floor and oak panelling; the detailed plaster ceiling is of significant height and deep set stone mullion windows embrace historic stained glass “coats of arms”. Two short flights of stairs lead to the two wings, one housing the principal bedroom suite with guest suite below and one to a panelled sitting room (the Elizabethan Library), with a stone fireplace and heavy plaster ceiling. Adjoining is a good sized study; these two rooms originally served as a bedroom and bathroom and could be re-instated as such. Below, and accessed externally, are further rooms currently used for storage.
There are two supplementary rooms with an adjoining bathroom, which the current vendors use as an occasional guest suite. The kitchen is conventionally fitted with a range of units, and appliances to include a Rangemaster cooker. Opposite is a utility room which also serves as a cloak/shower room. Stairs from this area descend to a large basement, previously referred to. The drawing room is of fine definition, again with lead lattice and stone mullion windows, and a graceful fireplace.

Situation
Positioned in an elevated position, Westwood House is approached via a long private drive and is skilfully set to appreciate the panoramic views. There are a wide range of amenities locally being about 2 miles from the pretty spa town of Droitwich; Worcester lies approx. 7 miles to the south east. Junction 5 of the M5 (approximately 4 miles) provides fast road links to a number of important conurbations including Birmingham (approx. 20 miles).

Outside
The property is initially approached via a long drive which serves the house, past two ornate gate houses and then ultimately over a private drive which is flanked by beautifully maintained lawns. A dwarf box hedge marks the turning circle in which is ornate paving, around which is ample parking. To the rear of the building are two single garages en-bloc. There is also a private garden, of notable size, a short distance away, being the original arboretum to the main house.

Additional Information
The property is held on a 999 year lease which commenced in 1984. Peppercorn ground rent. There is a service charge payable for the maintenance of communal areas and towards a sinking fund, currently £192 per calendar month as last set in Oct 2012.
Mains water, electricity and drainage connected. Oil fired central heating.
