A fabulous mix of traditional and modern.
From the outside you would be excused in assuming this is a normal, large 1920’s family home sitting on a desirable road a short stroll from Solihull. But from the moment you open the font door the traditional ends and the modern takes over - 57, Broad Oaks Road is a stunning property that has been thoughtfully extended and re-modelled. The result is a beautiful and stylish home.
Cross & Craig Architects have led the modernisation and extension project with the brief of creating a family home with large spacious rooms whilst retaining original features. The house was completely renovated throughout, with no cost spared - re-plastering, a complete renewal of all the electrics and central heating system. Design and tech features include under floor heating and CAT6 connections.
The downstairs is centred around a vast entrance hall with original wood panelling painted in a soft white and grey, making it light and bright. Glass doors lead into the huge open-plan kitchen, dining room, living space with bifold doors framing the big garden - it is a stunning room that is perfect for the whole family to be together.
Another door off the entrance hall leads into a large sitting room with beautiful feature fireplace - this room has the interior designers touch and has been sumptuously decorated. The bifold doors in this room make it effortless to wander in and out of on those sunny days and children will love the freedom. There is a third reception room downstairs that has a cosy and intimate feel. We can imagine curling up with a cold drink and a good book in front of the Chesney log burner. There is also a utility room, oversized storage cloakroom and an integral garage on the ground floor.
Outside there is a mature rear garden that has been split into three areas - a patio space that spills out from the house, which is an extra room in good weather. Then there is a large lawn for playing, and at the rear an orchard with a second patio and room for a shed, garden office or tree house. At the front of the house is a large drive and front lawn.
