Mr Clarke thinks :
All the work’s done and I’m a stroll away from The Drum and Monkey. What’s not to love about it?
This charming house is a four-storey Victorian terraced property, dating back to 1896. It’s pretty as a picture, full of character and perfectly located. It’s a light bright and spacious house ready for a new owner to call home.
There is a cosy sitting room with a bay window and a gorgeous original open fireplace. It’s a great spot for curling up with a good book or watching TV.
The sitting room leads to the spacious dining room which is open plan to the lovely big kitchen and views over the pretty garden. The whole space is flooded with light from the windows and clever roof light above the kitchen. It’s a great family space where everyone can be together. The originally chimney has been opened up, swept and then boarded off so is ready for a log burner to be easily installed, which would add even more charm to this fabulous space.
Off the dining room is a door that leads down to the spacious basement, currently used for storage but could be a fabulous games room or study. Whatever its use, it’s great to have the additional space.

Mrs Clarke says :
I love the vibe of the house. It’s cosy, characterful and functional all rolled into one. It feels how home should feel.
Head up the stairs to the first floor where you’ll find two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The master bedroom is light with plenty of space for a king-size bed, bedside tables, a wardrobe and drawers
Bedroom two has a fabulous view of the garden and is again light and airy.
The bathroom has just been finished with large grey tiles and grey walls which give the room a modern and sultry feel. There is a sparkling new shower and plenty of room for a bath to be installed if needed.

Our favourite part
I love the kitchen dining room. It’s flooded with light and has a perfect view of the long and pretty cottage garden. It’s such a sociable space where we can all do what we want to do and be together at the same time
The semi rural dream
Bentley Heath is perfectly situated between Knowle and Dorridge. There are lots of lovely homes, a friendly community, great park and all the conveniences you could dream of between the three closely connected villages. Walking the children to school is like a fashion runway. Glamorous mums and dads always say hello.
There is heaps to do in and around Bentley Health whatever the weather. There’s the Four Ashes Golf Centre where the whole family can enjoy crazy golf, stately home Baddesley Clinton for a nice stroll to help blow away the cobwebs, swimming and lots of other sports activities available at the Tudor Grange Sports Centre or Touchwood if you fancy a bit of good old retail therapy.
Mr Clarke loves the fact that he’s a few minutes stroll from Dorridge Station where he can grab his favourite flat white right on the platform before boarding the 06:56 to London.
Car, Bus and Rail Transport connections are excellent. Bentley Heath is just minutes away from the Midlands Motorway Network with the M42 having links to the M1, M5, M6 and the M40. Birmingham Airport just 16 minutes by car and Solihull is a mere 5 minute drive where you’ll find an endless choice of bars, restaurants, shops and cafes.
