The Chase is situated on the highly desirable Luttrell Road within the Four Oaks Estate. The property is nicely set back from the road and benefits from very attractive, private grounds.
The Four Oaks Estate is an exclusive residential area lying along the north and east borders of Sutton Park. Originally the site of Four Oaks Hall, the house and its surrounding land were sold in 1868 to Hubert de Burgh-Canning, 2nd Marquess of Clanricarde for residential development. Four Oaks Hall was demolished in 1898. Covenants have ensured that the Four Oaks Estate has been preserved as a most attractive and highly desirable place to live with tree-lined private roads; their names derived from its historical past. Sutton Park, which is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest, offers great scope for walking, golf and a variety of outdoor pursuits.
The town of Sutton Coldfield provides an excellent choice of shops, restaurants and schooling including Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School, Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls and Highclare School. Nearby Mere Green provides a good selection of everyday shops including Waitrose and Sainsbury’s supermarkets. One of the many advantages of the area is its location for fast communications to the M42, M6, M6 Toll and Birmingham International / NEC.
