“Wildacres" a remarkable and individually designed property, is set outside the small hamlet of Consall, in the RSPB nature park. This truly unusual house, set in almost 10 acres of land, is offered to the market, as a unique opportunity to own a small country estate, in a beautiful green-belt rural area. Its stunning location has to be seen to be believed. “Wildacres" sits in an elevated position, surrounded by mature gardens and wildlife landscapes, and takes full advantage of the amazing South and East facing views offered by the Churnet and Consall valleys and the Staffordshire Moorlands beyond. It is secluded and peaceful, but only 20 minutes from “civilisation,” and easy road and rail links. The 3369 sq.ft residence was constructed in 1950 by a local industrialist and was extended in the 60s and again in the 70s. The property has elegant interiors, and large, light-filled rooms, ideally suited to accommodate a family lifestyle. An impressive main entrance hall offers access to the ground floor reception rooms with a staircase leading to the first floor. The ground floor includes includes an elegant drawing room with custom designed stone fireplace with a log burning stove, a large dining room with sloping picture window, a cosy sitting room/library, an office and a deluxe “arts and crafts” breakfast kitchen with integrated appliances. All rooms enjoy magnificent views of the beautiful gardens and neighbouring Staffordshire Moorlands countryside. A utility, pantry, porch/boot room, double garage, and cloak room /WC complete the ground floor. The landing feeds into 3 double bedrooms, one single bedroom and two “Jack and Jill” en-suite bathrooms. The large main bedroom also has the added benefit of a walk-in wardrobe, a dressing area with fitted wardrobes and two full height sliding patio doors, opening onto the feature glass balcony, overlooking the magnificent valley and garden views. Throughout both levels, large windows offer outstanding views, and allow in tremendous levels of natural light. A first floor snooker and games room adjoins the main house and leads to a self-contained one-bedroomed apartment, in a retro style reflecting its original use as a home cinema in the 60s and 70s. The Apartment offers a living room, double bedroom, kitchen and bathroom with its own entrance porch, but could also be used as a granny annexe or a student flat. There are various outbuildings, including 7 garages, ideal for a car enthusiast, a large cedar greenhouse, a potting shed and a wooden implement store. A further 6 acres contains a 5 acre grazing field, a large agricultural outbuilding, suitable for adaptation to equestrian pursuits or vehicle storage and a fully fenced and gated tennis court. Stunning mature gardens extend to 3.5 acres and display excellent seasonal interest. They feature a huge variety of perennial plants in themed borders, colourful shrubs, many unusual mature trees and conifers, a wild woodland area, 3 ponds and a beautiful sunken garden. Various areas of the garden have been re-wilded over the past 10 years, to encourage nature and provide wildlife habitats. Some of the lawns have been left to grow longer and wild orchids and native wildflowers have appeared. All areas are easily accessed by paths and steps. Approached via a gated private drive with access to all garages, the driveway has ample off-road parking for many vehicles and storage of up to nine vehicles, ideal for a car enthusiast. As the property is centrally located, within the grounds, it boasts exceptional gardens, woodlands, grassland to the front, rear and side and has frequently been utilised for many charity events, sculpture and art exhibitions, often with afternoon teas served on the lawns. The property is also well suited for equestrian use, with the paddock of land and various buildings which have stabling potential. A second service road runs parallel to the main drive and provides an alternative access to the estate. Solar panels sit on the South/East main roof and provide a generous feed-in tariff. The central heating is by LPG. A new boiler Vaillant ‘ecotec plus’ has just been installed in the property. Viewing is essential to fully appreciate the stunning and breathtaking location, of this very unusual and spacious accommodation.
