Full description

A stunning five bedroom architect designed detached family home sitting on about 1.2 acres of land and adjacent to Bluebell Woodland. Literally only a few minutes away from Junction 3 of the M42 making this property very convenient for anyone that travels for business. The current owners also have one side of the property set up as an annexe with their own set of stairs. There is also excellent space above the double garage to convert to offices/study or even a bedroom.

Accommodation - Entering the property through the main secure front door and into the entrance hall. To the right is the living room with a large inglenook fireplace fitted with a wood burner. Just off the entrance hall there is a study overlooking the rear garden and woodland. To the left is a formal dining room through to open
plan kitchen with a central chef island and fitted Miele appliances.

Through the kitchen is access to a further living room and from this living room there are stairs leading to a bedroom fully fitted with its own ensuite, this side of the house is currently used as the annexe. Farrow & Ball has been used extensively throughout.

Up the solid wooden staircase and onto the landing. On this floor, there are four bedrooms (the fifth is the annexe that has been separated). One of the bedrooms has an ensuite which is also a wet room and there is also a separate shower room which has a steamer facility by Steamist.

Outside - The property is set on a 1.2 acre plot adjacent to Bluebell Woodlands. The substantial front garden has been landscaped as has the rear and side gardens. On the grounds, there is also a double garage with stairs to over the top where there is great potential for offices or a bedroom.

Seller Insight - "The house has been beautifully restored to accommodate contemporary living, the original character of the building offset with a more modern open plan family kitchen and dining room. “We added a spacious extension to the side of the house,” say the owners, “also building a detached double garage in keeping with the style of the house.” With five bedrooms, three bathrooms and three reception rooms, this is the perfect house for family life and entertaining alike.

Immediately surrounding the house itself are extensive and thoughtfully landscaped grounds. “We have invested a lot in the gardens over the years,” say the owners. “The front garden provides parking for at least six cars, supplemented by the double garages, while the rear garden is edged with wildflower beds and includes an enclosed walled area within which young children can play safely. Our land adjoins protected ancient woodland, home to deer who sometimes pay us a visit in our garden! The bluebells are just beautiful in Spring, too.”

It was the location of the property which first appealed to its current owners, however. “The secluded position offers protection and privacy all around,” they say, “whilst being within an easy commute of our workplaces. The motorway is easily accessible, while the train station is just over a mile away for a 20 minute journey to Birmingham. More locally, we have the rugby club opposite, a country hotel and restaurant just down the road, as well as an Italian restaurant, pub and garden centre within a short distance of the house.”

Nearby Solihull, Bromsgrove and Redditch all boast excellent amenities, with neighbouring villages including Tanworth in Arden, Lapworth, Alvechurch and Henley in Arden providing picturesque country walks and pubs. There are various golf courses to be found locally, as well as sailing and fishing at Earlswood Lakes and Barnt Green Reservoir.

“The house is great for entertaining as we can open up all the doors and see from one end of the house right through to the other, linking up all the rooms. This open vista stretches the full length of the house, making this the ideal space for parties.”*
