Description

The property sits between the divergence of the main Birmingham-Bristol line and the former Great Western Regions Oxford, Worcester & Wolverhampton branch line on which Stoke Works Station opened in 1852 primarily serving local industries in the village and closed in 1965. Great Western House was reputedly the station master's house built c.1860. The unique attractive property remains largely original apart from a large kitchen extension in the 1980s and is now somewhat dated and would benefit from updating and improvements. Within the grounds there is outline approval for the erection of a terrace of 4 x 2 bedroom houses (17/00521/OUT Status: Application Granted).

Gardens and grounds

The property is approached over Shaw Lane between railway bridges into a tarmacadam drive to the side of the house leading to the rear with parking and turning for several vehicles. Linked to the property is a useful garden store, and to the other side of the property integral with the main building is a further store room, believed to be an office to the property at some time. Off the drive is a brick built single garage with adjacent corrugated shelters and timber shed behind. The property extends and tapers to the rear primarily laid to lawn with mature trees and shrub borders. To the front of the property further gardens are again primarily laid to lawn with perennial borders, and mature trees and hedging giving screening to the boundaries.
