This spectacular, newly built, six-bedroom house occupies a highly desirable position on Avenue Road in leafy Dorridge. The house, offers over 4,500 sq ft of stunning internal living space spread across three floors. From the moment you drive through the gates you appreciate that this is a luxury home that has been designed and built to exacting standards. There's even a smart home system to make your lives better and easier.
Upon entry, a series of zones become immediately apparent, setting up a journey through largely open-plan spaces, via textural and voluminous variations. The vast entrance hall is flooded with natural light and your eyes are led up the elegant staircase to the upstairs beyond. To one side of the hall is the main living area, divided into sitting room and dining room. Past the cloakroom and store cupboard, the house opens up dramatically in to a large open plan kitchen and the garden - it is a space that will please the most discerning of home hunters. Glazed ceilings soar up to the sky and the room is bathed in wonderful levels of natural light. The sliding doors open onto the patio and garden creating an effortless link between indoors and outside.
Beyond the communal kitchen/dining room you find two flexible spaces that could be used as a gym, office, children's play space or a lounge. These rooms create privacy and the inclusion of wide glazed doors maximise the flow of light. The boot room, utility room and garage add a purposeful dimension to this stylish home.
Mrs Clarke loves :
The immaculate fixtures and fittings.
The spectacular oak staircase dramatically ascends to the upper floors and the stunning front window. On the first floor the Master suite bedroom is positioned in a quiet position at the rear of the property. The views from here are across the garden and tree tops, which create a bucolic and calming vibe that lends itself to a peaceful nights sleep. This impressive room boasts and en-suite bath and shower room, large walk-in wardrobe and a private dressing room. Four further bedrooms are arranged across this floor, two having en-suite shower rooms. The stylish family bathroom is luxuriously appointed and large enough for even the most serious of bathers.
The second floor is formed of two rooms, one of which has an en-suite bathroom. The other, larger room is intended to be the childrens domain, allowing them ample room to entertain away from the quieter areas of the house below.
- Three words : Location. Style. Space.
Our favourite part
The mix of large open plan communal spaces and intimate rooms make this the perfect family home.
Solihull is officially the best place to live in the UK.
Is there anything more lovely than strolling through Tudor Grange Park or playing with the dog in Brueton Park, safe in the knowledge that in five minutes you’ll be having a hot chocolate and cakes in one of the country’s leading branches of John Lewis followed by – who knows? – a movie or a wander around the high end boutiques of Mell Square? Of course there isn’t. That’s why Solihull has been declared the best place to live in the UK.
Solihull’s motto is urbs in rure (town in the country). It thus marries verdancy and shopping, which is just what we all really want - Isn't it?
The state and independent schools are great. Ruckleigh School was voted Best Independent Prep School in 2014.
Transport links are superb with the M42 connecting you to London by road, the train zipping you into Birmingham and even an airport.
There are sports clubs, green spaces, countryside day trips and lots more on your doorstep.
If you want to enjoy higher incomes, better employment rates and longer life expectancies, then you better move to Solihull!
