Vendor Interview - Located just south of Shirley and the affluent town of Solihull, this much-loved family home occupies a quite spot on the edge of the small village of Cheswick Green. Originally built in 1960, the detached bungalow with large front and rear gardens has been home to Ted and Marie for 39 years; ‘we moved from Solihull to give our children a happy country life; all three of our children grew up here, enjoying the run of the garden in which they kept chickens, ducks, geese and goats. I fulfilled my desire to raise pigs and keep bees, and over the years we’ve grown most of our own fruit and vegetables – I used to call it the land of milk and honey,’ says Edwin. The property, which has been updated and extended over the years, is surrounded by open fields and rolling West Midlands countryside. Cheswick Green village, which is just under a mile away, hosts a range of facilities including a primary school, park with children’s play area, convenience store, pub and doctors surgery. Two miles away in Earlswood you’ll find more useful amenities plus beautiful lakes with a sailing club. ‘The size of the bungalow, its gardens and the proximity to a good range of primary schools would give a young family a wonderful taste of country life,’ says Marie.

The property is within easy reach of excellent shopping hubs and railway stations at Shirley and Solihull. Access to the M42 motorway and its connections to the M5, M6 and M40 couldn’t be better – Birmingham International Airport is only 20-minutes away by car.
‘The house has been well maintained and has a lovely welcoming atmosphere. The rear garden is over 400 ft. long with work sheds, chicken coops, a large fish pond and mature vegetable and flower beds with over twenty fruit trees including apple, pear and plum. The gardens overlook fields front and back.’
‘The lounge overlooking the garden and fields beyond is particularly nice, it’s a lovely place to relax.’
‘We love that the property has such wonderful views of the countryside, back and front, yet is within easy reach of excellent transport links and well-served towns.’
‘Our fondest memories are of our daughter and two sons getting married from here, and then later on our eldest granddaughter. The birth of our first piglets was a very special occasion too.’
‘We will miss everything about the place as it’s been a very happy home. We never thought we’d leave but we’re getting too old to continue working on the garden and look after house as we’d like it to be cared for.’
