Local life

A charming character property lovingly transformed into a luxurious family home.

Mrs Clarke

Now and again, a house comes onto the market that makes your heart skip a beat. 110 Tilehouse Green Lane has such an effect. Steeped in 400 years of history but with the added bonus of NOT being listed. Painstakingly restored from top to bottom, it has been transformed into a super modern family home and has everything you could wish for and more.

As soon as you pull into the sweeping drive, you’re drawn to the beauty of the house and its setting and cannot wait to see inside. From the moment you walk through the solid oak front door with its stud ironwork and commanding presence, you realise the inside is as breathtakingly beautiful as the outside. It’s the grand entrance we all aspire to. A solid oak floor, a grand fireplace, a sweeping staircase with galleried landing, a classic modern stair runner equipped with stair rods, walls full of character with oak beams and a cut glass chandelier to set it all off. This sets the tone for what lies ahead.

The house flows gracefully from this elegant hallway to every room throughout. Let’s start with the lounge with its oak beamed ceiling, solid parquet flooring and Inglenook fireplace where you can feel the warmth of the open fire and hear the crackle of the logs burning whilst you curl up on one of the sofas and enjoy a good book or a favourite film. On a summers day you can open up the French doors onto the garden and feel the summer breeze gently flow through the room that has windows to three sides allowing the light to flood in.

The heart of this fabulous home is difficult to choose. Mr Clarke thinks it’s his music room with the dark paneled walls and original stone fireplace whilst Mrs Clarke says it’s undoubtedly the kitchen diner with its exposed brick wall made from the original chimney, a super contrast to the sleek modern kitchen with the Corian work surfaces, glass splash back and bifold doors overlooking the fabulous garden.

There’s a cleverly planned family games room just off the kitchen, semi open plan, perfect for keeping your eyes on the little ones whilst cooking up lunch for friends and family.

To the side of the kitchen, there’s the study overlooking the garden to the side….super handy when you need a fresh pot of coffee to keep you going.

There’s a long and spacious utility to the other side of the kitchen which has plenty of room for all those utilitarian goods.

Head back to the hallway and you’ll find a super smart WC with separate enclosed storage cupboard for all those hats and coats.

Finally, head upstairs where you’ll be thrilled to find 5 beautiful, generous sized bedrooms and three bathrooms. The master has a super-sized ensuite with a roll top bath, walk-in rainfall shower and Jim Lawrence lighting and feels like a 5 star luxury hotel suite that you don’t want to leave.

Head along the landing to find bedroom 2 with an ensuite equally as smart to the Master Bedroom with clever Jack and Jill access off the landing for bedrooms four and five. Bedroom 3 has it’s very own ensuite.

Summary

  • Style : A modern masterpiece steeped in history
  • Lifestyle : Luxurious living in the heart of Knowle.
  • Three words : Seventeeth. Century. Heaven.
  • Our favourite part Mrs Clarke just adores the garden whilst Mr Clarke loves tinkering with his cars in his supersized garage

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 chaps now have The Ale Rooms, a new craft beer hangout for the discerning drinker. Knowle is no longer just a High Street...

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?

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.
