Floor Layout Plan

It is not to scale and is intended to show the approximate relationship of one room to another, with an indication of the main fixtures and fittings

Knowle is a delightful village in which to reside retaining much of its High Street charm with old dwellings, yet conveniently placed for access to Solihull (two miles), Birmingham (ten miles) and Stratford upon Avon (fifteen miles). Knowle village contains an excellent selection of local shops, good schooling facilities at both junior and secondary level (Arden School) and bus services are available locally. Dorridge Station (1 miles) provides commuter train services to Birmingham. In addition, the N.E.C., Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station are within an approximate 15 minute drive, whilst the M42 provides fast links to the M1, M5, M6 and M40 motorways (mileages approximate).

Located on the outskirts of the village of Knowle, yet within comfortable travelling distance of Solihull, the motorway network and Birmingham International Airport, this handsome detached property was originally constructed in the 1980's.
Occupying a semi-rural position with open fields to the rear, the accommodation within the house is well laid out and offers a number of spacious reception rooms and five generous bedrooms, presenting a prospective purchase the scope to personalise and enhance.
Approached from the lane by way of a wide sweeping in and out, block paved driveway, the house offers substantial parking but is also nicely set away from the road itself.
A particularly grand reception hall has a handsome staircase with fine mahogany handrails, decorative cornicing and plaster mouldings, creating a striking first impression.

The principle reception rooms comprise a formal Sitting Room, the focal point of which is the attractive marble-surround fireplace and sliding patio doors out to the swimming pool complex; a Dining Room which also has a marble fireplace and is open to the Sitting Room by way of a wide ornamental archway, and a second sitting room, currently used as a Family / T.V Room, then leads through to a good size Study.
At the centre of this family home, the Breakfast Kitchen is cleverly styled to create a specific area for informal dining, as well as having a breakfast bar within the food preparation part of the room. There is also access to the swimming pool from here, making it ideal for parties.
To the rear of the property an outstanding indoor leisure complex has a lounging area, built-in drinks bar and circular seating area; as well as access to changing rooms with a shower and w.c.

On the first floor a fabulous galleried landing leads to five excellent double bedrooms to the first floor, and two bathrooms, one of which is en suite.
Gardens are mostly laid to lawn and include a raised sun terrace, barbecue area and views across open fields to the rear.
This unique property therefore gives a prospective purchaser the opportunity to acquire a spacious and comfortable family home with plenty of potential to personalise, enhanced by an exceptional leisure complex.
