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).

Brook House forms part of a small select and exclusive gated development of quality executive homes occupying a first class location on the outskirts of Knowle village in a delightful semi-rural environment. The property therefore enjoys the best of both worlds - the peaceful ambience of the countryside, whilst being within a short drive of the excellent amenities at Knowle and Dorridge.

The present owners have considerably enhanced and improved the original property and in particular have created a spectacular Poggenpol fitted kitchen, open plan to the dining area and family room, plus a superb garden/games room with home cinema above. Also double height glass atrium with feature glass wall.
Brook House offers a stunning contemporary interior, which is appointed to a high standard with under-floor heating, oak floors to the principal rooms, Lutron state of art lighting, surround sound system and wired for Cat 5, H.D.

The property offers superbly proportioned family accommodation which includes a reception hall with curving contemporary staircase leading off, guest cloakroom, double doors to the atrium dining room, drawing room, magnificent open plan kitchen, dining and family room, study, laundry and garden/games room with spiral staircase to home cinema room above and guest cloaks.
On the first floor are four excellent bedrooms, three en suites, dressing room, Jack and Jill bathroom, plus home office. In addition, there is an excellent good sized fifth bedroom with en suite on the second floor.

Set in most attractively landscaped three quarter acre gardens which enjoy a southerly secluded aspect, Brook House offers a truly outstanding contemporary home in what must be one of the best locations just south of Knowle.
The property is approached via double remote controlled security gates which give access into this exclusive and select small development.
