Wensleydale, Wrottesley Road, Tettenhall, Wolverhampton
Full Property Description:
Wensleydale is an elegant family home which stands in a particularly fine location at the preferred end and on the preferred side of Wrottesley Road within a large plot of approximately two thirds of an acre with a south facing rear garden.
The local facilities provided by Tettenhall Village are nearby, the picturesque open spaces of the Upper Green are within walking distance, there is easy travelling to the City Centre and the area is particularly well served by schooling in both sectors.
The current owners bought the property in 1999 and have extended and refurbished the property during their tenure. The house now provides well appointed accommodation over both ground and first floors with some fine living areas, a superb kitchen by Dayrooms and a particularly impressive principal bedroom suite.
The property was originally inspired by the architecture of the Art Deco period and has a fine architectural pedigree, believed to have been designed by the renowned Wolverhampton born and Cambridge educated architect Richard Twentyman. The Art Deco theme remains evident in the property with the original character having been preserved and which now seamlessly blends with all the modern appointments that contemporary lifestyles require including double glazing and gas fired central heating.
