Overview

Straight Mile is a highly impressive, enviably spacious, well proportioned, 5 double bedroom, detached, family bungalow residence, having been thoughtfully and substantially extended and extensively renovated in full, by the current owners. Presented to the very highest standards throughout and being most conveniently situated in this desirable, central Warwickshire village setting, this truly striking home demands an early internal viewing to fully appreciate the spacious, highly specified accommodation, covering over 3,800 square feet of luxurious living space, currently on offer.

The popular village of Meriden is situated within the County Borough of Solihull (despite its ‘CV’ postal code), at an historical crossing of route ways to the south of the main A45 Birmingham-Coventry Road. It lies in a largely undeveloped area of agricultural land known as the ‘Meriden Gap’ which separates the conurbations of Birmingham and Coventry. The original settlement, known as Alspath (‘road to Al’s dwelling’) was on the hill to the east of the present-day village and was held by the Countess Godiva before 1066 and by Nicholas during the time of the Domesday survey of 1086. The establishment of the London Road drew the centre away from the hamlet on the hill into the valley alongside the road. This was turnpiked in 1821 and Meriden became a coaching stage with several inns and ale houses.

Interestingly, Meriden was once the home of the Triumph Motorcycle factory, which moved from Coventry during the Second World War. The factory finally closed in 1983 and the site was cleared the following year for housing, with many of the iconic Triumph motorcycle identities living on as street names in the development that ultimately replaced the factory.

Additionally, Meriden is renowned for its immediate proximity to the countryside, including greenbelt and woodland, all of which are within comfortable walking distance. There is an excellent range of local amenities, well-liked by the local community, including the ‘Good’ Ofsted rated Meriden Church of England Primary School, a couple of popular pubs and a lovely park with a children’s’ playground and an all-weather tennis and football court. For those who need to commute, Berkswell and Birmingham International railway stations and Birmingham Airport are conveniently accessible with Junction 6 of the M42 being but a short drive away also.

Solihull’s town centre is also within easy reach and 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 several 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.

Vendor Comments

When we decided to buy this modest and untouched 3 bedroom bungalow, we immediately had a vision that with a great deal of planning, hard work, effort and dedication, a truly magnificent 5 bedroom family home could be created for us all to live comfortably in, and that’s exactly what we, as a family, managed to achieve. There were originally 6 of us living here, all with our own cars, so a substantial area to park was a major requirement and something we ultimately manged to realise, during the course of our labour of love. However, as the children have now all ‘flown the nest’ and are on their own life journeys, there are only two spaces required, and so, it is with great regret and some considerable trepidation, that we have come to realise that our truly lovely family home is now just too big for the two of us to continue living in, which is why we have decided to move to something smaller and more manageable.
