A quite exceptional double fronted Victorian family home set behind an illuminated driveway yet with the additional benefit of garaging and additional parking approached from the rear via Villa Street. The house is possibly one of the best examples of the Victorian period in the Stourbridge area and displays the most magnificent features of this opulent period, offering five bedrooms and two bathrooms. The plot was purchased in 1864 for the sum of £40 and having established a glass engraving workshop on the site, the house was subsequently built soon afterwards and extended to accommodate an expanding family around 1899. The house remained in the same family for nearly a hundred years until the 1980's. Two subsequent owners have lavished much time and attention in retaining as many of the original features as possible and enhancing its overall appeal in line with modern day living. Presenting a splendid fusion of modern and Victorian styling the house has extensive
landscaped gardens that offer beautiful backdrop to this beautiful home. Vale Street lies in the former heart of the Stourbridge glass making industry. It provides an excellent base for those working within the near by commercial centres and Stourbridge and the Black Country and yet retains its atmosphere of being slightly off the beaten track. Around Stourbridge are excellent communication networks with access to the motorway network via the M5 at Halesowen or Bromsgrove.
