Local life

Wonderful location. Four bedrooms. Large garden. Secret workshop. Tick, tick, tick, tick!

14 Melford Hall Road can be found on a quiet, leafy road, just a short stroll away from Dovehouse Parade and its collection of fabulous local shops. Several excellent schools, Olton train station and Solihull town centre are all within easy walking distance of the house.

Set over three floors, this semi-detached 1930s home has been extended and offers two reception rooms, four bedrooms, utility room, study, kitchen, downstairs shower room, family bathroom, garage and parking for four cars. The light and airy kitchen and the living room have vaulted ceilings and both look out onto a stunning, well established garden. The garden is a special place. It’s quiet, south-facing, private and best of all, has a hidden workshop tucked out of sight.

On the ground floor, there’s a modern kitchen which can seat four people comfortably at a breakfast bar. It’s a great place for entertaining. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large utility room with a door that opens onto the garden. Perfect for hanging the washing out. A downstairs shower room is handily located at the back of utility room.

From the kitchen, a door leads into a bright, open plan living and dining area. French doors lead from the dining area out onto a large patio and a beautiful mature garden. A raised decking area provides the perfect place to sit in peace. A small pond sits next to a dwarf weeping willow and alongside apple trees, a plum tree, and a lovely old magnolia. A pink Clematis grows up the rear fence and roses can be found sprinkled throughout the garden. A doorway in the rear fence leads you through to a hidden workshop and large storage area.

Step back into the house and at the front, you’ll find a living room and reading area, which could be used as a children’s’ playroom. Whatever you choose, it’s nice to have the option.


The garage has been converted into a useful storage area and a study - a great space for working from home or just hiding away with a book. There’s certainly no shortage of rooms in this house.

Head up the stairs to the first floor. At the top of the stairs, there’s a large and very handy cupboard. Storage space is not a problem in number 14. Beyond that, there are two rear bedrooms which have fabulous views of the garden, where you might spot the resident green woodpecker.

A slightly larger and equally lovely front bedroom is adjacent to a simple white, family bathroom. Walk through a door on the landing, make your way up to the third floor and you’ll emerge into a wonderfully large and light double bedroom. The serene room has been created by converting the loft and is a fantastic addition to the house.

This really is a lovely home in a wonderful location, with plenty of opportunity to update the décor and to personalise it to suit your style. The property is being sold with no upward chain.

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 local is The Farm
  • Walks: Brueton Park is lovely
