Mr Clarke love :
The open-plan living space; it's tranquil and flooded with light.
A stylish two bedroom apartment overlooking the canal in Dickens Heath.
We love being amongst the countryside, yet close to the hustle and bustle. This home has the best of both worlds. Sitting pretty next to the canal; floor to ceiling windows flood the space with natural light. The wrap around terrace is a great outdoor space to relax.
Mrs Clarke thinks :
The terrace is perfect for summer evenings.
The open plan living room allows for a variety of zones so that everyone can spend time together whilst doing different activities. The stylish kitchen has everything the discerning home needs; integrated appliances, easy to clean and easy on the eye, as well as dual aspect views.
Into the heart of the home, there are two generous bedrooms and modern bathrooms. Guests will feel at home, or if you wanted to turn the second room into a home studio, the vistas out are lovely to do so.
There are two secure underground parking spaces (close to the lift), for when you need to do those bigger shops, or family road trips.
- Three words : Light. Peace. Quiet.
Our favourite part
A great home in a desirable setting.
A village with the lot
The clever band of developers that designed Dickens Heath were having a good day when they sat down and drew up their plans, there was some seriously good blue sky thinking going on in that meeting. Pretty houses, stylish apartments, lots of amenities, plenty of green space, waterways to wander along on a Sunday afternoon, close to Solihull and near transport links. This is possibly the perfect place to live...
Let's start in the middle of the village. Main Street provides your everyday necessities and more - a posh pub/ wine bar (a necessity in our book!) that serves up lovely pizzas, is child friendly during the day but also somewhere to let your hair down on a Friday night. A cafe for the daily latte. Pharmacist, doctors, supermarket etc etc. There is even a village hall with everything from Zumba to baby ballet.
It is the vibe of Dickens Heath that we love so much. Everyone is so friendly. Walking along the manicured streets people won't pass you without a nod, a smile or a "top of the morning to you!" kind of greeting. It's as though you have become a local by just being there.
You are minutes from the fabulous town of Solihull where you can shop at Waitrose darling, have a coffee at Joe & The Juice and get some serious retail therapy at John Lewis, Zara and every other High Street favourite fashion house you could dream of. If you're feeling more adventurous then head to Umberslade wooded adventures...check it out.
Well connected? Whitlock's End is your nearest station where you can be whizzing off to Birmingham Moor Street. From Solihull or Dorridge you can jump on a train and be in London Marylebone in an hour and 40 mins to two hours. If driving is more your style you can be in Birmingham in thirty minutes or zooming down the M40, M5 or M1 within five minutes.
