Situation - Woodside House is situated in a private gated position in the heart of the highly desirable Four Oaks Estate. Covenants have ensured 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. The Four Oaks Estate was originally part of a large forest encompassing the adjoining Sutton Park. The Estate was initially laid out in the 1890s when the Four Oaks Park was bought by the Marquis of Clanricarde. The area was then developed as an exclusive private residential estate and covenants encumbered on the residences have ensured that the Four Oaks Estate has preserved itself as a most attractive and highly desirable place to live. Nearby Sutton Park, which is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest, offers a great scope for walking, golf and a variety of other outdoor pursuits.

The town of Sutton Coldfield provides an excellent choice of shops, restaurants and schooling including Bishop Veseys Grammar School, Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls and Highclare School. Nearby Mere Green provides a good selection of everyday shops including Waitrose and Sainsburys supermarkets. One of the many advantages of the area is its location for fast communications to the M42, M6, M6 Toll and Birmingham International Airport.

Distances - Sutton Coldfield town centre 2 miles
Lichfield 8 miles
Birmingham 10 miles
M6 Toll (T3) 7 miles
M42 (J9) 9 miles (Distances approximate)
