That the golf club is across the road
A large detached home sitting on a quiet close, with a great garden, five bedrooms, three reception rooms and a garage - we think this is the perfect family home.
As you drive onto Lightwood Close your shoulders relax and you feel at home. The blossom trees, neat gardens and smart cars are like something from a magazine. Pull onto the large driveway and head inside this big detached property. Once inside you appreciate that there is nothing to do, you can just move your furniture in and call it home. The house has been meticulously designed and maintained for modern family life. Downstairs there is a large living room, snug, conservatory, cloakroom, kitchen with dining room and a utility room. The garden is accessed through the kitchen or conservatory and it is a wonderful space for alfresco dining or playing.

The quiet setting and immaculate home

There is plenty of storage in the loft, garage and garden shed.

The idyllic location for the modern family.
A modern town with charm
Knowle is a charming town steeped in history and full of busy modern life. There are a whole host of uber cool bars, cafes, restaurants and shops and just about all the amenities you could wish for. Not to mention the tip top and seriously sort after schools, both private and state options.
There is plenty to keep kids entertained from scouts and guides, drama and tennis clubs, cricket, golf and football teams and every activity in between. The yummy mummies love coffee (or maybe the gin) at Oktagon and the friendly vibe and stunning goods at The Bread Collection. The chaps now have The Ale Rooms, a new craft beer hangout for the discerning drinker. Knowle is no longer just a High Street...
There are some lovely canal-side walks to help you blow out the cobwebs after work or if you just fancy a long Sunday ramble. Mrs Clarke loves the fact that she can brunch with friends in one of the lovely cafes before they set off for a brisk walk to burn off the calories.
Car, Bus and Rail Transport connections are excellent. Knowle is just minutes away from the
Midlands Motorway Network with the M42 having links to the M1, M5, M6 and the M40, 1.5 miles from Dorridge Train Station and 6 miles from Birmingham Airport. Solihull is a mere 10 minute drive for retail therapy heaven.
A bustling High Street, a cracking Artisan Boulangerie, a super cool Gin Bar and National Trust walks on your doorstep. What more could you ask for?
- Closest village/town: Dorridge and Lapworth
