Property Summary

Seven Bedroom Detached House

Full Details

Built in 1876 and featuring in the Olton Heritage book by Jean Powrie, Margaret Jordan and Carol Andrews “The History of an Edwardian Suburb” is this simply stunning three storey, seven-bedroom iconic Victorian property. With plenty of original features such as stained-glass windows, Minton flooring and even a servant bell board, this family home just oozes character and charm. Sympathetically extended in 1925 to add a double garage and a games room, this home is a one-off incredible opportunity.

Entering the property through the porch and main front door into the panelled entrance hall which is currently carpeted but has original Minton flooring. To the left of the entrance hall is the drawing room which has a bay window facing the front of the house, this room also gives access to the conservatory. To the right of the entrance hall is the walnut panelled dining room. Further on through the entrance hall is the study /library with a stunning original rose and beautifully restored coving. Through to the kitchen where there are two pantries which then leads though to the breakfast room and the utility room. On the ground floor there is also a WC and access to a large cellar which is great for storage.

Second Floor
On the second floor, there are four large bedrooms two which have their own ensuite and a 22ft games room with a vaulted ceiling. There is also a main bathroom on this floor with a separate WC

Third Floor
On the third floor the current vendor has set up the three rooms as a home office, a hobby craft room and a spare room. This floor also provides accessible loft space and a ‘secret room’ which could quite easily be converted into a bathroom. This floor has excellent potential to be converted to a self-contained annexe.

Outside the property is set back from the road with an in/out driveway and access to both the single and double garage. The double garage has access through to the property itself and the single garage has access straight through to the rear garden. To the rear is a very private garden with a large patio area and a lawn area. In addition, there is also an outhouse which also houses a gardener’s WC.

St Bernards Road is a prestigious desirable road in Olton, an area of Solihull. Solihull is recognised as being one of the most affluent and highly sought-after areas located within the more southern parts of the West Midlands conurbation and is situated some nine miles from the heart of the city of Birmingham. The town itself offers an excellent range of amenities including the first-class award winning shopping centre Touchwood with a John Lewis flagship store heading up 80 high street retail names, 20 bars and restaurants and a 9-screen cinema complex. There is also a state-of-the-art library with theatre and various other family entertainment centres such as Tudor Grange swimming pool/leisure centre, park/athletics track, several nearby private golf courses and an ice rink. Finally, Olton and Solihull have their own train stations, and the town and surrounding areas benefit from access to Birmingham International Railway Station and Airport, the National Exhibition Centre, the National Indoor Arena, Genting Arena and the fabulous newly opened Resorts World Birmingham with 50 outlet stores, 18 stylish bars and restaurants, an 11 screen cinema and an exhilarating international casino and hotel, all of which has a transport network which is second to none, linking the area to London either via the M40 or M1, the south via the M42/M5 and access to the north along the M6 motorway corridor.
