Existing 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).

Lady Byron Lane has long been considered one of the premier roads in Solihull, containing a variety of individual quality properties. No. 67 comprises a traditional detached property, built in the mid 1930's with an unusual semi-circular central turret with conical tiled roof.
The property occupies a superb plot, which extends to approximately three quarters of an acre and enjoys a wide frontage to Lady Byron Lane. Set in magnificent established gardens, which back onto Copt Heath golf course, the property enjoys a very private aspect and offers enormous potential for improvement and enlargement. Currently offering some 4,400 sq.ft. accommodation, the property has the benefit of full planning permission for extension to both sides of the property, which would ultimately create a 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom home extending to approximately 6,000 sq.ft.

Of interest within the property, is the mellow pine panelling to the lounge and we are advised that the original oak parquet flooring is still in situ, as is the terrazzo flooring to the main reception hall. The present accommodation benefits from leaded light replacement double glazing and gas fired central heating and currently offers a wide reception hall, guest cloakroom, two reception rooms, sun lounge, breakfast kitchen, butlers pantry and laundry room, four bedrooms, two en suites, dressing room and family bathroom. In addition there is a substantial area to the side of the property which offers large garden/implement store, workshop and courtyard plus a double garage to the front, thereby creating further immense potential.
Here then is an exciting opportunity to acquire a superb traditional home in a magnificent established plot, backing on to the golf course and with full planning permission in place, if required, for extension to both sides of the property.
