Gorst Hall originally dates from circa 1660, and with later additions, provides an opportunity to acquire a thoroughly unique character residence set in the middle of the private Kidderminster Golf Club course.
The Golf Club was originally formed in 1909 and known as the Comberton Golf Club, obtaining a lease for a 9-hole course at Gorst Hall and then acquiring sufficient further land to make a full 18-hole course in 1913. In 1921 the name changed to Kidderminster Golf Club and the club continues as a thriving and highly regarded venue to this day.
Gorst Hall offers 3600 square foot of well-proportioned living accommodation on two floors including an impressive Reception Hall with a quarry tiled floor, from here there is access to the large Breakfast kitchen and Utility, which comprises a French style dresser, space for a Washing Machine, Tumble Dryer and Dishwasher. There is a 4-ring electric hob and hand-made cabinets at both base and eye level, combined with the original beams and the old stable door which give a sense of history and warmth.
The Lounge is one of 5 Reception Rooms, with cream carpet and wall mounted lights, a cosy room that leads on to the Garden Room, a lovely room that has stunning views of the Golf Course. The second sitting room also benefits from the views to the Golf Course and also has a built in multi-burner; perfect to relax and unwind on a cold wintry night.
The Dining Room is another reception room that looks onto the Garden and beyond to the Golf Course, there is an electric fire with room for a large dining room table and door to the Study.
On the First Floor there are 4 Double Bedrooms and an impressive Master Bedroom Suite.
All four Bedrooms have stunning views of the Golf Course, whilst the Master Bedroom Suite has a large Nursery/Dressing Room and beautiful En-Suite Shower Room.
The oppulent Family Bathroom gives a real feeling of occasion from the roll top; freestanding bath and the Victorian Style Pull Chain WC. There is plenty of storage from the built-in wardrobes.
The generous Gardens naturally have views over the Golf Course to all sides. There is a paddock which is currently being used for the donkeys and side access to the two Stables. There is generous parking along with an excellent 4 car Garage which may well lend itself to conversion as a home office/annexe subject to the necessary planning consent. It is currently being used as a professional gym.
Approached off Barnetts Lane, one of Kidderminster's premier residential addresses, the Hall is approached via a track across the golf course and provides an idyllic retreat in beautiful surroundings yet so close to town and main road/rail links.
Kidderminster is a large town and civil parish in the Wyre Forest District of Worcestershire, home to the Kidderminster Harriers Football Club, Kidderminster Carolians Rugby Club and the Kidderminster Victoria Cricket Club.
