Solihull offers an excellent range of amenities which includes the renowned Touchwood Shopping Centre, Tudor Grange Swimming Pool/Leisure Centre, Park and Athletics track. There is schooling to suit all age groups including Public and Private schools for both boys and girls, plus a range of services including commuter train services from Solihull Station to Birmingham (8 miles) and London Marylebone. In addition, the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station are all within an approximate 10/15 minute drive and the M42 provides fast links to the M1, M5, M6 and M40 motorways. 

THE PROPERTY This handsome 1950's detached property sits on one of Solihull's most prestigious residential roads. With its close proximity to the shopping centre, park, schools and train station, it is no wonder that families have long considered Blythe Way to be one of the town's most highly regarded addresses.

Sitting approximately half way along this attractive, no-through avenue, Ashridge was originally constructed by Messrs Braggs, who were highly reputable builders at the time, and their distinctive brickwork is just one of the many striking features of this home.

A slightly elevated and block-paved driveway, with front lawn, leads to a solid oak front door flanked by pretty stained glass panels.

Once inside, a light and airy reception hallway has a lovely oak staircase, and oak doors leading off to the main reception rooms which comprise a very spacious dual aspect sitting room, having views over the front garden and French doors to the rear; a family room / snug with a marble fireplace; and a formal dining room with an Adam style fireplace and serving hatch.

There is also a superb conservatory off the Family Room, with a tiled floor and central heating, making this a splendid addition to the house which can be used all year round. Country style units in light oak provide plenty of built-in storage below laminate work tops in the breakfast kitchen, where there is ample room for family dining. Integrated appliances include a larder fridge, Creda double oven and grill, and a four-ring gas hob.

From the kitchen a covered area provides a very useful laundry area and also has a freezer room, a boiler room, a handy boot room and an outdoor toilet.

The wide, shallow-rise staircase leads up to four double bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master suite has a range of fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom which is fully tiled with a corner shower and a Nordic twin-bunk Scandinavian sauna. The family bathroom has been fitted with a coloured suite that includes a large corner bath and also houses the airing cupboard.

The property has a sizeable, boarded loft with Velux windows, thereby having potential for other uses subject to planning permission.

Externally there is an integral garage with oak doors, and pedestrian access from the front through to the delightful, westerly-facing rear gardens which are perfect for catching the afternoon sun. A Cotswold stone paved patio area is great for barbecue suppers, while the extensive lawns are good for children. Flowerbeds are stocked with various plants and shrubs, while mature evergreens provide year round colour and shelter. A meandering pathway leads along one side of the garden to a small orchard with a further lawn area.
