With five bedrooms, a wine cellar, gym and stunning views from the garden, this unique ‘treehouse’ could be all yours – for a cool £795,000.

This home in Wordsley is on the market for £795,000

Chestnut Corner, off Braemar Avenue in Wordsley, was built in 2009 – with wooden features throughout, which were all built using wood from woodland behind the property.

Property owner, Kevin Whittingham, who designed it, said: “We built it in the back garden of our previous house, using timber from woodland nearby. We felled all the trees ourselves and built the property.

“We were going to build a normal house, but we got a felling licence for the woodland and while we were doing that we were trying to find a purchaser for the timber.

This super swish room is like something out of Grand Designs

“It is beautiful oak and chestnut so we thought why don’t we build a house out of it. From ground-breaking to moving in, it took about nine months – it took us another couple of months to do other bits – and we have been living in it since.

“We are selling up because we have plans for the future, new adventures,”

On the ground floor, there are two double bedrooms, a shower room, utility room and gym/wine cellar.

The first floor also has a cloakroom and bedroom five/office.

With a further staircase leading to the second floor, which has a master bedroom, with two identical walk-in wardrobes, en-suite shower room with a separate bath and a Sweet Chestnut balcony overlooking the garden – a further double bedroom with mezzanine sleeping area and en-suite shower room.

The home is made out of oak and chestnut

The private rear garden is a gardener’s paradise, with a triple garage leading to a open vast private lawn area.

It also has a decked area, brick built BBQ with a fire pit, fish pond, outdoor storage, and lean-to private area perfect for a hot tub.

Hunters Stourbridge is marketing the property on 01384 737013.
