Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Dickens Manor is a select development of new homes in the popular village of Dickens Heath in Solihull. With its property mix of 2-bedroom apartments, 3, 4 and 5-bedroom houses, the development is designed to appeal to an audience of professionals, families and first-time buyers.

All properties will enjoy a quality specification, with contemporary fixtures and fittings, including modern bathroom suites and kitchens and integrated kitchen appliances. Externally, houses will benefit from turfed front gardens and all properties will have garages or allocated parking.

For families, these new homes are close to a number of well-regarded schools, including Dickens Heath Community Primary School, which is around 10 minutes walk from the development, Woodlands Infant School and Light Hall School for secondary age pupils. The Sixth Form College Solihull, Solihull College and South & City College Birmingham offer a range of courses for the over 16s and all can be reached in around 10 minutes by car.

The village centre is home to a variety of local shops including a supermarket, plus restaurants and cafes and are within half a mile of Dickens Manor. A greater choice of stores and supermarkets can be found in the neighbouring district of Shirley, while Solihull town centre and Birmingham city centre are both popular shopping destinations, offering a mixture of high-street brands, independents and niche boutiques.

Dickens Heath and the surrounding area provide numerous attractions for making the most of leisure time. The village is bordered by the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal and its footpaths, which are ideal for watching wildlife as well as boating and walking. Dickens Heath Nature Reserve also provides a haven for wildlife in its grassland, wetland and woodland habitats.

For sports fans, Tidbury Green Golf Club is less than two miles from the development and Tanworth and Camp Hill Cricket Club is just over a mile away. The village hall is the setting of several fitness and dance classes catering for adults and youngsters, while Shirley Park, five minutes drive from Dickens Manor, is equipped with tennis courts, a football pitch, rugby pitch and children's playground.

These new homes in Solihull are perfectly placed for easy access to several major roads in the area, including the M42, A34 and the A435. Whitlocks End Railway Station is a four-minute drive or 20-minute walk from the development and from there regular services run into Kidderminster, Stratford upon Avon, Worcester, Birmingham Moor Street and Birmingham Snow Hill. Birmingham Airport is approximately 10 minutes drive away via the M42.
