Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Tanworth in Arden is a delightful and sought after village well situated for quick access to Henley in Arden (4 miles), Redditch (6 miles), Stratford upon Avon (9 miles), Solihull (8 miles) and Hockley Heath (4 miles). The village contains a good range of amenities including local inn and picturesque parish church. In addition, Tanworth in Arden boasts a junior and infant school as well as the renowned Ladbrook Park Golf Club and is well placed for access on to the M40 and M42 motorways which, in turn, provide links to the M1, M6 and M5 thus enabling fast travel to the larger centres of commerce including Birmingham, Coventry and London. The National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station are all within an approximate twenty minute drive. 

Forde Hall Park occupies what must surely be one of the most outstanding locations in Tanworth in Arden amidst some 18 acres of gardens and undulating pasture land, thus providing an idyllic and tranquil setting.

Approached via a long and private tree-lined driveway, the existing property stands in exceptionally attractive grounds with a wide variety of established trees and shrubs. The land slopes gently to a small wooded copse and a stream which may be suitable for the creation of a lake, subject to permission.

In 2011, consent was granted, ref: 11/00612/FUL, to replace the existing house with a contemporary dwelling and we understand the owners have made a material start.

We further understand from professional planning consultants that under Permitted Development Rights within the area surrounding the house, permission would be granted for the construction of further accommodation and the current owners had considered including a double garage and swimming pool / leisure complex of some 2,000 sq.ft., however, prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries to this regard.

A previous planning permission was granted in February 2008 for the construction of a 6,000 sq.ft. traditional country house and it is thought Stratford upon Avon District Council may look favourably on a change of design in keeping with the property surroundings.

Rarely is such a glorious site found. One which combines peace, exclusivity and stunning views, whilst being only 1.5 miles from Tanworth in Arden Village and furthermore is easily accessible to the surrounding larger towns of Henley in Arden, Stratford upon Avon and Solihull. A fabulous opportunity to create a dream home.
