Bentley Heath
Local life

145 Mill Lane is a treasure trove of a home that has fantastic living spaces, big bedrooms, a garden, a garage and a basement.

From the front, 145 Mill Lane is as pretty as a picture. It is a four-storey Victorian semi-detached property that dates back to 1896. There is lots of character and plenty of charm. You may think that inside will be small, but you will be pleasantly surprised to find a light and spacious home.

There is a cosy front room that has a big bay window and an open fire. It is a great spot for curling up and watching TV. There are floor to ceiling book shelves and plenty of space for sofas.

Carry on down the hall and it is into the big open plan kitchen with French doors and roof lights. It’s a great family space where everyone can be at one whilst doing their own thing. The kitchen can be kept neat and tidy because there is a utility room and downstairs WC at the back of the ground floor.

"I love the kitchen. It’s like one of the gorgeous Notting Hill homes you see in magazines. The roof lights are spectacular. Our whole family could be in here together without getting in each other’s way!"



Open the French doors and step down into a courtyard garden, big enough for a summer barbecue with friends and family. There is also a big garage to store all of the stuff you don’t want inside. There is a side gate leading onto a driveway.

It’s a perfectly proportioned downstairs.

If you want more space there is a basement. It has a window so it’s not dark and dingy. You could easy make it into a playroom, office or store for your vintage wine collection. Whatever you use it for, it is wonderful to have the space.

      Head up the stairs to the first floor where you find the big master bedroom that’s flooded with light from the large sash window. There is a cute fireplace that creates a cosy ambience.

      The bathroom is divine. It has a free standing bath and a huge shower. There is another gorgeous fireplace, which makes the room feel like a Champneys spa! It’s a proper bathroom, the kind you could spend a few hours in soaking away any aches and pains.

      "145 Mill Lane is an interior decorator’s dream job. There is so much character to accentuate. This home needs a few pots of Farrow & Ball, a couple of rolls of Osborne & Little wallpaper and a copy of Living Etc. to get the creative juices flowing."



      On the second floor there are two perfectly proportioned bedrooms. They are cleverly designed so there is lots of storage and they are light and quiet. Perfect for a restful night’s sleep.

      There is a big garage and a drive, which gives you the all important off-street parking and storage space that everyone wants. There is a little gate and a paved area at the front. It’s a picture postcard property in a great location.

      Location

      THE NEIGHBOURS OF KNOWLE, DORRIDGE & BENTLEY HEATH

      A trio of villages providing all you could need.

      Dorridge has the transport links to Birmingham and London, Knowle has the buzzing High Street and Bentley Heath has the pretty houses. How could you choose between them? You don’t have to, they are all close enough to enjoy. It’s like having three amazing friends who you do different things with!

      Knowle is the big one. It still retains its village charm yet has many shops and restaurants (Mrs Clarke likes lunch at Loch Fyne. Mr Clarke is partial to a curry.) The choice is yours. There is also a great artisan bakery and delicatessen that is run by Zinedine Zidane’s cousin nonetheless, baguette of the net!

      Dorridge has everything you need for modern living… big supermarket, great schools, a well connected train station, super pub, off licence and a fish and chip shop.

      Bentley Heath has a suburban vibe. There are lots of lovely homes, a friendly community, great park and all the conveniences you could dream of. Walking the children to school is like a fashion runway. Glamorous mums and dads always say hello.

      Knowle, Dorridge & Bentley Heath are a hat trick of great villages three miles southeast of Solihull and ten miles from Birmingham. Each village has it’s own specialness.

      Mr Clarke’s favourite place around is The Knowle and Dorridge Cricket Club and the Racquets Club. He likes nothing better than watching a game or playing some mixed doubles. Mrs Clarke can usually be found in the gorgeous shops on Knowle High Street.
