Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Hampton in Arden is a most delightful village setting and is served by first class local amenities including Hampton in Arden Railway Station which connects to London and is therefore most useful to local commuters. The M40/M42 motorway links, Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station plus the National Exhibition Centre are all close by. Excellent schooling facilities are available, including the well sought after George Fentham Endowed School, whilst Solihull town centre with its unrivalled amenities is some 3½ miles distant (mileages and distances approximate). 

DESCRIPTION Oakdale occupies a delightful position on a most desirable road in Hampton in Arden and is set back from the road behind a mature screened frontage and electronically controlled gates leading down a tarmacadam driveway flanked by lawns either side interspersed with a variety of specimen trees and has the benefit of ample parking facilities and a detached triple car garage.

This handsome property was built circa 1951 and has a most appealing Virginia Creeper clad front elevation and has been upgraded by the present owners to offer highly adaptable and spacious accommodation and includes energy efficient features including solar panels.

An enclosed porch opens into the spacious through reception hall with a recently refurbished guest cloakroom and leads immediately into the open dining room with deep coving and offers attractive garden views. From the hallway, the beautifully proportioned reception rooms comprise the living room with windows to the front overlooking the fore garden and a central contemporary fireplace with a stone surround creates a welcoming feel and flows seamlessly into the conservatory with French doors onto the terrace.

The breakfast kitchen enjoys a dual aspect with views to the front and overlooking the rear gardens and provides ample space for informal dining. There are an attractive range of oak units with soft close drawers complemented by granite worktops and integrated appliances include a dishwasher, microwave, fridge and a two oven AGA.

A rear lobby offers plenty of additional storage facilities and access to the front, ideal for bringing through groceries and muddy boots! In addition, there is access to a large garage with a remote roller door and a functional utility. There is also an additional cloakroom and informal family room with large window seat with doors onto the patio completes the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor, the light and airy accommodation continues with a generous master bedroom having delightful garden views from the dual aspect windows, attractively fitted wardrobes and an impressively sized ensuite bathroom with a double width shower, fitted bath and double vanity basins fitted by Ripples and also benefits from underfloor heating. Four further bedrooms are also a good size together with an ensuite shower room to bedroom two and a spacious family bathroom. From the landing, there is access to a substantial loft room, currently used for storage which offers the opportunity for a loft conversion if required.

Externally, the gardens are an absolute delight and are profusely stocked with herbaceous and perennial beds offering varying areas of interest and colour to provide a lovely backdrop. Immediately to the rear of the property is a paved granite terrace ideal for seating summer furniture and central steps lead down to the expansive lawn, which is superbly maintained and a mature Beech hedgerow offers excellent screening and privacy. Within the garden are a range of timber framed stores including a Summerhouse situated off the terrace and a number of implement storage sheds and workshops and a useful paved pathway runs the whole depth of the garden. An additional paved terrace half way down the garden is idyllically situated to capture the evening sun.

Oakdale therefore combines the best of everything; excellent family accommodation within a private yet convenient location providing easy access to commuter networks for London, the Midlands motorway network and a short distance to the NEC and to Birmingham International Airport.
