Description

THE PROPERTY

Tenure: FREEHOLD

EPC Rating: D  **  Council Tax Band: G  

Introduction & Exterior

Available with No Upward Chain, this remarkable family home in rural Little Aston, set within extensive grounds that include a tennis court and outdoor heated swimming pool will greatly all viewers. The property is approached through electronic gates to a long gravel driveway that has a large turning circle in front of the house with a fountain as the central feature. Halfway up the driveway, just as viewers approach the house, it branches to the left-hand side toward a vast double garage with two separate up-and-over doors to enter.

The majority of the land surrounding the house is lawn, with attractive shrubs and trees near to the front of the house. The extent of the plot is believed to be around 1.78 acres. A combination of fencing and mature hedgerow forms the boundaries to ensure that the plot is private.

We begin the internal description of the home at the front where there is a wide storm canopy over the main entrance, supported by brick pillars to provide an attractive appearance.

Ground Floor & Cinema Room

As viewers enter the home, they will be immediately impressed with the grand staircase that is the main focal point. This incredibly generous hallway features beautiful Amtico flooring laid in a herringbone style with doors and brick archways leading off to the kitchen, dining & sitting room, lounge, snug and guest WC. The guest WC includes a wash basin and has a further door leading through to a useful boot room.

As you may expect, each room in this home is fabulous in size with the main two reception rooms being two of the best examples of this. The main lounge is at the rear-right corner of the house and has patio doors opening out to the outdoor pool area. The lounge also has a stunning brick fireplace complete with an impressive log burner. There is room the fireplace for seating to provide a more intimate place to relax over the winter months. In front of the lounge is a smaller reception room which we have labelled as the snug. This room is a favourite of the current owners as a quiet place to relax as if fits a sofa suite and has patio doors opening out to the pool.  

At the opposite corner of the house to the lounge is a large dining room that features a bay window at the front and an attractive fireplace to be able to position a sofa suite around. As depicted in the photos, the dining space currently holds a twelve-seater dining table with ease. To the rear of the dining room is a home office that will be greatly appreciated by business owners who require a quiet spot to work from home. The office is conveniently positioned to face the driveway which is ideal for when visitors are expected.

The final room leading off the hallway, via an archway, is the kitchen. This incredible open room offers an area in the centre to place a dining table or island to be able to have breakfast or entertain guests for a coffee. The kitchen units are of a farmhouse style and are mounted to all four walls, feature a range of wall and base mounted units with a dishwasher, wide range oven and overhead extractor included.

To the rear-left of the kitchen is a door through to a long utility room that has matching units to that of the kitchen along with spaces for a refrigerator, freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer, with plumbing where necessary. There is an exit door out to the rear garden towards the back of the utility room with two doors for the boiler room featuring the large central heating boiler, and another ground floor WC with wash basin.

From the utility room there is a door to the left to access the double garage and a spiral staircase up to the cinema room. As the current owners do not utilise the garage for cars, it has been used as somewhat of a hall for entertaining guests and holding functions, such is it’s size. The cinema room has been created from the space above the garage and is a superb room to be enjoyed for watching films with there currently being an overhead projector in place. A large skylight provides natural light into the cinema room.  

First Floor

Once at the top of the stairs, viewers will be very impressed with the bright gallery landing. From here there are doors leading off to all five double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The largest two bedrooms, both to the left of the first floor, include access to stylish en suite bathrooms that both include a bathtub, separate walk-in shower cubicle, wash basin, toilet, and attractive tiling. The en suite to the master bedroom also includes a bidet, whereas the bathtub is an eye-catching stand-alone slipper bath. The family bathroom also holds a separate bathtub and shower cubicle with toilet and wash basin.

Although all five bedrooms are double, bedrooms two and three are very large and bedroom one is quite frankly an outstanding size. All bedrooms are carpeted and include a fitted wardrobes and drawers.

Heating System

Due to the rural location, interested parties will be keen to learn that the heating system is fuelled by oil. The tank is positioned at the rear of the garage and is easily refilled by the supplier. There is also a Ground Source Heat Pump. Estimated costs are available on request.

NB - ROOM SIZES ARE SHOWN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.

TRANSPORT LINKS

Although rural, Forge Lane is excellently positioned for commuters as it is between the A452 Chester Road and the A5127 Birmingham Road which both have great access to Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield, and Lichfield, with fast access to the M6 Toll, M6 and A38.

The nearest train station is available at Blake Street which is part of the Cross City Line between Lichfield and Redditch, stopping at Sutton Coldfield and Birmingham New Street at the centre. Those looking to travel further afield will find Lichfield Trent Valley (a 20-minute drive) very useful for trains to London Euston.

SCHOOLS & AMENITIES

The home lies in catchment of two very highly regarded schools; Little Aston Primary Academy and King Edward VI, Lichfield. Although we have researched this information, parents are advised to confirm catchment via the local authority.

As the property is in the heart of the South Staffordshire countryside, there are plenty of public footpaths and bridleways nearby. The nearest shops are found in Little Aston and Shenstone, with the Little Aston Hospital (private) in short reach. The popular Aston Wood Golf Course is located close by where there are also conference facilities.
