Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal
Offside Water's Edge
Knypersley is a substantial house set in a large plot surrunded by fabulous open countryside, with a private mooring at the bottom of the garden. The mooring is on a short arm which gives direct access to the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal by its junction with the Stourbridge Canal.
The house is set in a quiet tree-lined road, and is accessed via remote controlled wrought iron gates. A block paved driveway flanked by lawns and hedges leads to parking spaces for several cars and a garage with an electric roller door. Side gates give access to the rear garden. The house itself is characterful, with leaded light windows throughout, beamed ceilings on the ground floor, and timber clad ceilings upstairs. However, the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms are somewhat dated, so there is considerable potential for modernising it and developing the huge garden to create a truly magnificent home.
The front door opens into a vestibule, from which wooden double doors lead into a spacious and welcoming hallway with a staircase rising to the first floor. To the left of the hall is a glorious through living room, with a fireplace featuring a multi-fuel Severn burner, a window to the front, another huge window giving glorious views over the back garden and surrounding countryside, and French doors opening out to the terrace. To the right of the hall is a stunning spacious dining room with a Morso log burner, and windows to the side and the front. To the rear of the hall is a spacious kitchen with a large breakfast bar, a window overlooking the rear garden, and a door to the back garden. To the right of the kitchen is a side entrance hallway leading to a cloakroom and an L-shaped utility room with a door to the back garden.
From the hallway the staircase rises to a galleried first floor landing with a full width window opposite the gallery providing a delightful outlook. The spacious master suite to the right comprises a bedroom area with a window to the front, a dressing area leading to an en-suite bathroom to the rear, and a further room which could be a dressing area, study or nursery, with a window to rear. Bedroom two is a good sized double with a window to the rear, bedroom three is a long but narrow double with a window to the front, and bedroom four is a smaller double with a window to the rear. A bathroom with a separate shower cubicle and a window to the rear serves these three bedrooms.
In the garden to the right of the main house, attached to the rear of the the garage, is a large room, suitable for a variety of uses, such as games, a workshop or business area, an art studio, or perhaps for conversion to an annexe. It has two windows to the rear and French doors to the side.
Immediately behind the house is a paved terrace, perfect for relaxing and entertaining. This area enjoys fabulous views over the grounds, mature trees, and rolling fields beyond. Steps lead down to a huge grassed garden, which would benefit from further landscaping, and slopes down to the mooring at the bottom. Beyond the mooring is a small woodland area, to the rear boundary of which there are stunning views along the canal.
