Seller Insight - Located in south east Redditch, 4 Southlands Court is a modern detached property in an exclusive gated development of just five houses which has been home to Paul, Jo and their family for 14 years; ‘we’ve lived in the house since and it was built; we watched the building process with great interest and brick-by-brick we fell in love with it. Our three children have been brought up here and we’ve subsequently welcomed grandchildren – it’s a wonderful home with a layout which flows beautifully and has a great mix of light and airy and warm and cosy spaces’, says Jo.

The property, which offers a great sense of security and sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of life, is conveniently positioned an easy walk away from local amenities; right on the doorstep is the Headless Cross area which has a good mix of shops, restaurants and bars alongside day-to-day conveniences, whilst Redditch town centre is only a 20-minute walk away. “The location is fantastic; we can pop out the door and over the road for a quick stroll in the woods or be in town in minutes”, says Jo.

Please describe the qualities of the house and garden and why you have found them a pleasure/useful: ‘We’ve enjoyed the fact that the house is behind gates set within a small, safe and friendly community. The overall size of the property is fantastic.’

Please describe your favourite room in the property and why. “The kitchen is a lovely space for holding gatherings and enjoying family time. We especially love this room for its doors which open up onto the south-facing garden.”

Please describe your favourite aspect of the grounds and surrounding area: “The large patio area is a favourite spot and is perfect for eating out on warmer days. It’s a huge bonus to have the woods across the road for a quick breath of fresh air as well as Headless Cross so close for an evening drink or meal without far to get home.”

Please describe your most memorable event: “Overall, it’s been a joy watching three generations of the family enjoy the home together – welcoming the third generation has been very special. We’ve hosted some wonderful family Christmases here and it’s great to have the space for everyone to stay and enjoy family meals together”.

What will you miss most and why are you moving? “We will miss this house tremendously as it holds perfect memories for us, but now that our family has grown-up and flown the nest it’s time to downsize and let another family enjoy all that this wonderful home has to offer.”
