31 Woodshires Road is a handsome, well-proportioned, contemporary, 5 bedroom, 3 en-suite, detached, family residence, set within and forming part of the discreet and enviably peaceful ‘St Bernard’s Lawns’ development, which was built in 2007 by Messrs CALA Homes and inspired by ‘New England Colonial’ style architecture. This spacious, beautifully presented, individually designed home, which extends to over 3,500 square feet, has been substantially and expensively extended and improved by the present owners and offers a totally unique living style to the very highest standards throughout.
Solihull’s name is commonly thought to have derived from the position of its parish church, St Alphege, on a ‘soily’ hill. It is the most affluent town of the West Midlands, and one of the most affluent areas in the UK outside London.
The town is noted for its historic architecture, which includes surviving examples of timber framed Tudor style houses and shops. The historic Solihull School dates from 1560 (although not on its present site) and the aforementioned Grade 1 listed, red sandstone, parish church of St. Alphege, dates from a similar period and is a large and handsome example of English Gothic church architecture, with a traditional spire 168 feet high, making it visible from a great distance.
Lying at the heart of the West Midlands motorway network, Solihull is one of the best connected towns in the country. Bordered by the M6 and the M40 and split by the M42, which divides the urban centre of the borough from the rural south and east and being linked to European and global markets by Birmingham International Airport. It therefore has significant geographic and infrastructural advantages, being situated 7.5 miles southeast of Birmingham, 18 miles northwest of Warwick and 110 miles northwest of London.
The town centre boasts a bustling high street and the enviable shopping and entertainment complex, Touchwood, containing multiple well known retail outlets, a huge variety restaurants and bars and a multi-screen cinema showing the very latest releases. It also enjoys over 1,500 acres of green space including Elmdon, Malvern and Brueton parks, which offer plenty of family recreational facilities and ornamental gardens to walk in, to the wilder Babs Mill Local Nature Reserve with its lake, river and fishing areas.
Additionally the borough benefits from a number of outstanding state schools, including Tudor Grange and Arden academies, as well as a variety of well-regarded independent schools, with the historic, ISI ‘excellent’ rated, Solihull School being one of the most highly respected within the country.
We moved in the house in 2007 it’s a wonderful home in a beautiful quiet location backing onto the mere.
We were attracted to it because it was the rare combination of a modern build with a good size garden.
We did a couple of alterations giving the main lounge more light and looking out across the garden towards the mere as well as adding an additional large room flowing from the main lounge. It’s a room that’s had many uses, from a wonderful child’s playroom to an additional sitting room, party room to currently being used as a gym. It would indeed make a fabulous office space for those working from home.
The neighbourhood is wonderful.
We’ll be sorry to say goodbye but foreign climes beckon.
