Local life

A fabulous mix of traditional and modern.

Borja De Maqua

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.

Upstairs you find six bedrooms - five large doubles and one single bedroom (currently used as an office). The Brintons pure velvet carpets are beautiful to walk on and look at. The Master bedroom boasts bespoke fitted wardrobes, Juliette balcony and a stunning en-suite bathroom. Our favourite bedroom is the second room with a huge window overlooking the garden and painted wood floors.

The Family Bathroom is spacious and can deal with the morning rush of kids cleaning teeth, dads jumping in a shower and mums relaxing their aching muscles after the morning run.

It is rare to find a home that is so effortless, stylish and large enough to cope with family life. This is a stunning and hard working house that is ready for its next adventure.

Local Life in Solihull

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?

If you want to enjoy higher incomes, better employment rates and longer life expectancies, then you better move to Solihull!

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.

  • Closest village/town: So many villages, towns and cities within reach.
  • Post Office: 1
  • Stores: Oh we love a bit of John Lewis
  • Supermarket: Take your pick
  • Pubs: Our favourite is The Lazy Cow
  • Walks: Brueton Park is lovely
