This is a country residence from the pages of Country Living. I love it. Private, tranquil and big. But it is so close to Solihull to get my retail therapy fix and a flat white.
A stylish country house, nestled in the heart of beautiful countryside and minutes away from Knowle. Park Corner House is a very special home for the discerning family.
Locations don’t come better than this, tucked well off the main road into Knowle and Dorridge from Chadwick End you find yourself in tranquil countryside where the Knights Templar used to hunt deer in days gone by. Yet you are within touching distance of vibrant urban hubs and transport links. When the electric gates open and the sight of Park Corner House comes into view you can’t help but smile. The 2 acres of garden and 5 acres of paddock frame the house beautifully. Mind the ducks as you pull up and make your way into the house.
Park Corner House has everything you desire from a large country house. There is a warm welcome from the Aga log burner in the grand Reception Hall. Solid oak flooring and high ceilings create a light and spacious feel as you make your way into the home.
Every modern family needs a large, open plan kitchen and that is exactly what you find in Park Corner House. The room is subtly divided into a kitchen, a dining space and a fabulous sitting area. The south facing aspect floods the room with natural light and the views across the gardens are stunning. There is of course the obligatory cream, four oven Aga as well as the on trend country chic tiled floor, handmade wood cabinetry and beech worktops.
Off the kitchen are the other two country home must haves; a utility/boot room so you can be in and out to the kitchen garden and the dog can be stopped from bringing muddy paws into the kitchen. Then there is the pantry for all of those ingredients you will need when throwing lavish dinner parties for family and friends.
Through the inner hall you find a WC and a door leading into one of two further reception rooms. The Drawing Room and the Living Room are both light and spacious and beautifully decorated. Both rooms have fireplaces and large windows looking out to different aspects of the gardens.
Upstairs there are five double bedrooms, two en suite bathrooms and a family bathroom. The views from each bedroom are magnificent. The uninterrupted vistas across surrounding countryside is a magical view to wake up to. There are two heated airing cupboards off the landing and integrated storage in three of the bedrooms.
