Property description

An exciting opportunity to purchase Tile Cross House, a wonderful period family home dated back to the mid 18th century with Victorian additions and retains many original features. Uniquely positioned as sits privately within approximately 1 acre of gardens with no immediate neighbours, but is just a short distance to Bentley Heath, Dorridge, Knowle and Solihull.

This property offers huge potential to update and create the perfect family home. On entering the property, the grand hallway with period tiled floor and wooden staircase provides a glimpse of what is to come. From the main hall, the living room, dining room, guest cloakroom and breakfast room/casual sitting room, all enjoy superb garden views. The kitchen is accessed from the breakfast room and benefits from a good sized utility room and access to outside WC.

To the first floor are five bedrooms, two bathrooms plus separate WC. The top floor gives space as either a bedroom, study or store room.
The extensive gardens are a delight and give excellent screening from Browns Lane, having clipped and shaped Yew hedges, all set behind the gated entrance where parking is offered by way of gravelled driveway and multiple garage options. Adjoining the garaging is workshop space, stores and stable. These separate outbuildings have in the past had detail drawing made to provide secondary accommodation (now requiring new approval due to time lapse). This could be teenage/parent accommodation, office/home studio, etc.

The property is well served by excellent local schools including the highly sought after Arden Academy and a village which has a High Street of many period and character buildings, inns, restaurants, shops and historic church. The village adjoins open greenbelt countryside to the south yet Junction 5 of the M42 is within just one mile and leads to the Midlands motorway network, centres of commerce and culture. The railway station at Dorridge links Birmingham Snow Hill with London Marylebone and the railway station at Birmingham International which is within just five miles links Birmingham New Street with London Euston.”
