This most attractive period property offers an abundance of character from the moment you go through the entrance gates. The residence is typical in appearance of a property dated circa 1720, and was, we believe, originally three workman's cottages forming part of The Earl of Plymouths Estate. The rooms are well proportioned whilst retaining a warm and welcoming feel. The incredible views can be enjoyed from the majority of the rooms, and the sitting room and master bedroom are both dual aspect.

This fine residence is situated around lovely rural areas lined between the village of Barnt Green and Alvechurch and enjoys some outstanding country views. There is a village shopping centre about two miles away in Barnt Green and there is also bus and train services and local schools. The property is situated about fourteen miles from Birmingham city centre in greenbelt countryside and is about four miles from junction two of the M42 motorway.

The current owners have enjoyed this as a family home for many years, and this beautiful home simply must be viewed to be appreciated.
