Situation

Hinksford Farmhouse is located in the small rural hamlet of Hinksford just to the north west of Kingswinford where local amenities are to be found. More extensive shopping and leisure facilities are to be found at Brierley Hill, with the Merry Hill Shopping Centre. Stourbridge lies to the south and there is easy access into Dudley and beyond into the City of Birmingham, ideal for commuters.

Description

Hinksford Farmhouse is a substantial detached red brick family home, dating from around 1955 and occupying an elevated position. The property enjoys views to the west over the canal and down the valley beyond. The accommodation is well arranged over two floors and has the potential to be further adapted and extended as required (subject to the normal planning consents being obtained). From the entrance lobby, a door leads into the main entrance hall with, on the left hand side a large sitting room which is double aspect with a pair of French doors into the garden. On the opposite side of the hallway is the dining room, currently being used as a sitting room, with an attractive bow window with southerly views over the front of the property. There is a stone fireplace hearth with freestanding electric fire. A doorway leads through into the kitchen, fitted with a range of floor and wall units and featuring a two oven oil fired Aga. A square bay window provides views over the paddock at the rear. A doorway leads into a side hallway with access to the downstairs cloakroom and the garages.

To the first floor the staircase opens out onto a large landing with, to one side, the main bedroom which is a large double aspect room enjoying views to the front and rear. Along the corridor there are two further double bedrooms, both with south facing views where bedrooms two has a large selection of fitted wardrobes. At the rear of the house is a study which could provide a nursery bedroom or small single bedroom, if required. At the end of the corridor is the main family bathroom, a large room with freestanding bath and separate shower cubicle. Completing the accommodation on the first floor is a separate guest WC.

Gardens and grounds

The property is accessed from the main highway onto a shared driveway which immediately turns left onto the private driveway for Hinksford Farmhouse which is a sweeping concrete 'in and out' driveway with the attractive principally lawned garden to one side. This is well stocked with a variety of mature shrub and flower borders together with some mature hedgerows. To the side of the house is a further area of garden, also featuring mature hedgerows and trees. At the rear is a gently sloping paddock, laid to pasture and interspersed with an orchard of mature fruit trees over the lower section. The western side of the field is bordered by a row of mature Leylandii trees and there is scope for the field to be used for equestrian or other purposes. Behind the house, and with a large area of parking is a former Farm Shop, a substantial detached outbuilding constructed of a combination of red brick and metal frame which could provide a variety of different uses either as ancillary accommodation to the house, workshop, or indeed somewhere to run a small business (subject to the normal planning consents).
