Full description

Tenure: Freehold

LOCATION Dorridge has always been a highly sought after village in which to live - situated on the edge of open countryside yet only a few minutes drive from Solihull with its unrivalled amenities. Dorridge contains an excellent selection of local shops, highly regarded junior and infant schools, a very useful station with commuter services not only to Birmingham, but also to London (Marylebone) and bus services to Knowle and Solihull. In addition, Dorridge's extensive natural park is close by and the local village of Knowle is only 1½ miles distant. The National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham International airport and railway station are all about 15 minutes' drive away. The M42 provides fast links to the M1, M5, M6 and M40 (Birmingham to London) motorways. 

DESCRIPTION Situated on the edge of the village of Dorridge stands this traditional detached Edwardian family residence, hidden behind a deep hedgerow at the end of a tree lined drive. Woodford has been a much loved family home for over 40 years and still retains many of its original features. The property stands in gardens and grounds extending to approximately 0.756 acre (hatched green on the plan) and is within just a few minutes' walk of the village with its excellent amenities.

The house is now in need of some modernisation and the buyer will be presented with an exciting opportunity to upgrade the property. Planning permission has been granted by Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council dated 25th January 2016, application number PL/2015.52054/MINFHO for a two storey front extension and a single storey side extension to provide a further 1,069 sq.ft. of accommodation. We are advised that with Permitted Development Rights the property could be further enhanced to provide an overall size approaching 5,700 sq.ft.

The planning permission provides for a large family home to include large open plan breakfast/kitchen/family room, lounge, dining room, study and downstairs cloakroom. The first floor will offer a master suite with dressing room and en suite plus four further bedrooms, two with en suite facilities. Furthermore, with Permitted Development Rights the accommodation could be further extended at ground and first floor levels and a second floor could also be added.

The outside space with the garden and orchard offers a sense of privacy and presents a truly unique site close to the village.

The area of woodland and paddock situated to the right hand side (edged red) of the property and extending to 0.766 of an acre (edged red on the enclosed plan) is available by separate negotiation.

The property is likely to attract considerable interest so an early viewing is highly recommended.
