Accommodation: Built in the style of a Georgian manor house, Forest Rise is set well back from the road with an electrically operated gate opening to a sweeping tarmacadam driveway which meanders across the front gardens to a circular turning area in front of the house and extending on to provide access to an adjoining double garage and block paved parking area. Steps lead up from the driveway to a sizeable portico with double doors opening to a particularly generous reception hall with doors off to the ground floor accommodation, cloakroom with adjoining WC and a grand staircase sweeping up to a galleried landing. Extending from the front to the back of the house, the large lounge benefits from windows to the front and side elevations with patio doors leading out to the rear garden, a feature fireplace and central heating radiators. The formal dining room has central heating radiators and enjoys views over the front garden, whilst the breakfast kitchen benefits from views to the rear of the property and is fitted with a range of wall and base units, a double bowl stainless steel sink unit, integrated double oven and hob, central heating radiators and a stable door out to the rear garden.
With windows to both the front and rear elevations, the large galleried landing has a central heating radiator and doors radiating off to all bedrooms, the house bathroom and an additional WC. An open tread staircase leads up to a cavernous loft space which benefits from two roof lights to the rear elevation and could easily be converted to provide additional accommodation if required. The master bedroom has windows to the front elevation, central heating radiators and steps up to a raised en-suite shower room overlooking the rear garden and woodland beyond. Bedrooms two and three overlook the front and rear gardens respectively and are both fitted with central heating radiators, with bedroom two also benefitting from a shower and wash basin. The house bathroom is fitted with a suite comprising a panel bath, low flush WC and wash basin, as well as a central heating radiator, electrically heated towel rail and a window to the front elevation.
A side veranda connects the house to a large double garage with windows to both sides, an electrically operated up and over door, power and light. Courtesy doors open to the side veranda and a utility room to the rear, which in turn leads to the boiler room. Forest Rise sits centrally within substantial grounds comprising a mixture of formal lawns to the front and rear bordered by woodland with gated access into the Wyre Forest at the rear. Situated within the grounds are a selection of useful outbuildings which provide a mixture of storage and workshop space as well as additional garaging if required.
