Music room of note strikes chord.

Don't be misled by the name of The Music Room - it is far more than just a single living space that one could squeeze a grand piano into.

It is actually a quite substantial - it covers more than 5,000 sq ft - and historically signi?cant residence.

It was originally built by Kidderminster carpet industrialist, William Adams, as part of the even more imposing Lyndholm Manor in 1902-3. The Music Room survived when the manor was demolished a little over 20 years later in 1926.

This character property has been extensively refurbished to create spacious and ?exible accommodation over three ?oors.

The Music Room is approached from Linden Road in Kidderminster, over a gravelled driveway, which provides off road parking for several vehicles, with brick walls to either side, and steps to a covered porch.

The morning room is light and airy with a glazed roof lantern and sash window to the front, stripped wooden ?ooring, a marble ?replace, painted wood panelling, and a beautiful feature stained glass window through to the central stairwell.

From the morning room two oak doors lead to a single bedroom, which has a shower room and contemporary white ?ttings, and a double bedroom, which has an en suite with an antique sink and a roll-top claw-foot bath.

A spacious inner hallway has fantastic signed stained glass sash windows, oak panelling, and an arched alcove that leads to a newly-.tted kitchen/breakfast room. Attractive modern units and German worktops combine with traditional painted panelling, a chandelier and a Delonghi range cooker.

The magni?cent music room that gives the property its name has a lofty ceiling, beautiful curved decorative plasterwork, an arch, French windows that open to the raised terrace seating area, William Adam's intricately carved initials above a door, a bespoke carved ?replace with enormous mirror above, and ?ve ?oor to ceiling sash windows along the west wall.

Stairs rise from the inner hall the to the top .oor where there is a light and spacious master bedroom with treetop views, built-in storage and a ?tted white contemporary en-suite. The lower ground ?oor has a spacious hall, utility room, a modern hotel-style bathroom, which serves two large double bedrooms, a games rooms large enough for a full size billiard table, rear lobby with a built-in drinks fridge, walk-in storage cupboard and an Lshaped of?ce To the rear are enclosed lawned gardens with mature trees and shrubs, secluded seating areas and a feature iron fountain, now used for planting. Double timber gates offer vehicular access, and additional hard standing if required.
