Ben thinks:
A countryside gem, yet close enough to the action, Hall Farm Cottage has got forever home written all over it.

Take half an acre and five bedrooms, combine with original character and add a generous sprinkling of contemporary style, and you have the perfect recipe for a substantial family home in beautiful Beoley, with no onward chain.

Ben loves:
An exquisite blend of traditional and modern, with open plan family living and plenty of grounds.

A cottage it may be in name, but Hall Farm Cottage is far more than the word evokes. Sweeping up the driveway, there’s ample parking for several cars and this striking, turnkey home stands before you rather proudly, offering over 2250 sq ft of beautifully finished property.

An airy extension just a few years ago has masterminded a fabulous space running across the rear of the house, creating an open plan kitchen and family room where life revolves and spills outside in the warmer months. Oak cabinets and black granite worktops in the kitchen add a quality finish, and appliances are integrated. The double range cooker invites you to whip up everything from a hearty farmhouse breakfast to Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.

Bi-fold doors open wide onto the spacious garden, complete with running natural stream, making summertime a dream as you breeze in and out of the sun and shade. The dining area glows with natural light and has a lovely Mediterranean vibe with its whitewashed walls and cool floor tiles.

A separate, smart utility with grey cabinetry and wooden worktops makes light work of washdays and, with direct access to outside, it’s well equipped to deal with muddy boots, paws and gardening enthusiasts. There’s also a downstairs WC opening up to a lobby with garden access. Ideal for guests at garden parties and for those who simply enjoy pottering outdoors.

Just off the entrance hall, you’ll find two capacious reception rooms with wooden flooring, gorgeous ceiling beams and stunning fireplaces. One has an open stove, whilst the other features a log burner. And there’s a dedicated log store to keep everywhere lovely and toasty just by the front entrance. Whether you choose formal or informal, day room or cosy evening hideout, tween playroom or ‘grown up’ space, there’s volume aplenty in these living areas. The oh-so-adaptable layout of Hall Farm Cottage accommodates your own lifestyle without compromise.

We love the grandeur of a double staircase and, upstairs, whichever route you decide to take, you’ll find five generous bedrooms, two of which are king size, and three double rooms. All are immaculately finished and are peppered with individual features, like the pretty-as-a-picture beams.

The fifth bedroom, situated just off the master suite, would make the most wonderful nursery, dressing room or study. Broadband is superfast, making those working from home days highly productive, whichever room (or spot of the garden) you choose to work from.

The ensuite to the main bedroom has been recently refitted and is lovely and fresh. Lines are clean and contemporary and tiles are by Porcelanosa, whilst you can put your own stamp on the second en suite.

The family bathroom also features quality Porcelanosa tiles and, again, is newly fitted, incorporating a contemporary shower and double vanity unit, as well as a jaw-dropping freestanding bath for a long, long wallow.

Top up your Vitamin D levels in the south-facing garden. From dawn ‘til dusk enjoy al fresco living on the large patio whilst the children have fun on the rope swing and get rosy cheeks playing happily on the expansive lawn. This is the place for good food and good company with family and friends.

There’s a sizeable shed to keep your outside space shipshape and Bristol fashion, as well as a separate garage located in a block across the communal courtyard - wave to the fish in the well-stocked, shared pond on your way over there. And when it’s time to relax, you’ll want to gravitate towards your own private pond in the rear garden. Kick back and relax to the gentle sounds of the stream trickling through your grounds. Hammock optional.

  • Three words :  Sublime. Spacious. Swoon.

Beoley

Worcestershire Countryside

Beoley

Beoley is one of those hidden country gems which you get to by driving along pretty country lanes, past lovely homes and find yourself in peace and quiet, but when you need a flat white you are only 20 minutes from a big town.
The village has a cracking pub, a highly regarded primary school and a lively community. There are also the other village must haves of a Village Hall and a Church. What more could you want?
So if you are a country lover then get the wellies at the ready, pull on the wax jacket and get ready for a life of rural bliss…

But if you are a city slicker who wants a slice of the country life but can’t live without Waitrose, coffee shops and John Lewis do not worry for Beoley is twenty minutes from Solihull, five minutes from motorways to whizz you off to meetings.
Alvechurch or Redditch train stations are both approx. 10 minutes drive and both stations go direct to Birmingham in 25 minutes. Birmingham airport and Birmingham International station are 30 minutes away.
