Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Chadwick End is a small hamlet located some two miles south of Knowle along the A4141 Knowle to Warwick Road. Chadwick End contains local amenities including the popular Orange Tree Public House, village post office, village hall and transport services into Knowle and beyond. The larger village of Knowle is also within easy reach and contains a variety of excellent shops and schooling facilities, and the adjoining village of Dorridge provides commuter train services to Birmingham and London. Solihull town centre is some four miles distance with its unrivalled shopping, schooling and recreational facilities and, in addition, the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station are within an approximate 15/20 minute drive, whilst the M42 provides fast links to the M1, M5, M6 and M40 motorways. 

DESCRIPTION Situated just a minute drive from the National Trust property Baddesley Clinton, within an area of particular natural beauty, this charming cottage is perfectly positioned for commuters needing to travel between Solihull, Birmingham and London.

Nestled within an idyllic location along a private driveway, Marlpit Cottage is in without doubt one of the area's best kept secrets and offers a rare and unique opportunity with potential for further immense enhancement and enjoys grounds approaching just under 6 acres.

Sympathetically re-modelled by the current vendors, this picture-perfect home with cream brick exterior, handmade roof tiles and woodwork painted in an attractive heritage colour, captures the quintessential era of the property which dates to the 17th century in original parts.

From the pitch-tiled canopy porch the accommodation comprises a snug double aspect sitting/dining room having an open briquette fireplace with quarry tiled hearth, wood-burner and exposed wall and ceiling beams creating a wealth of character. Steps then lead down to a delightful living room with a feature fireplace and second wood burning stove. This room also enjoys a triple aspect with French doors leading to the south westerly terrace which has pretty views over adjoining fields.

No country cottage would be complete without a cosy kitchen incorporating flagstone flooring, ideal for muddy boots and paws. Also on a practical side, fitted units provide lots of useful storage, and a two-oven Aga takes pride of place with a brick surround. There is room for a breakfast / dining table, perfect for family gatherings or casual suppers. And a separate utility room with access to the garden.
Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom has an en suite shower room; while bedroom two has a fabulous vaulted ceiling, and bedroom three has been fitted with sufficient bespoke wardrobes to make this a dressing room if required.

Externally there is a detached double garage with automated doors, and a superb office with cloakroom and kitchenette, lending itself perfectly to anyone wishing to work from home.

To the rear of the garage is a timber framed store making a convenient space for garden tools as well as vehicles.

The gardens and grounds, blend seamlessly with Marlpit Cottage's glorious location, and are to the South and West of the property being mainly laid to lawn with the remainder divided into two separate paddocks with an additional gated access onto Netherwood Lane which could be beneficial for anyone wishing to keep a pony. There is also has a naturally fed pond providing a source of wildlife.
