Accommodation - A substantial and elegant 5 bedroom detached Georgian family home dating back to 1801. The current owner has meticulously restored this family home, whilst retaining or replacing as many original features as possible. In total this property spans over an impressive 4919 sq ft

This hidden gem is set back and well screened from the roadside. Located behind huge Douglas firs and mature hedging with the added security of private gates.

Entering the property into the hallway you have the main two reception rooms, one to the left and the other to the right both with an outlook over front gardens and driveway. The main sitting and the drawing room boasting all the original features that you would expect such has high ceilings, coving, picture rails and feature fireplaces, both also benefiting from beautiful bay windows with original Georgian wood shutters. The main feature for me in both rooms is the original Georgian fireplace. Which just make you want to light the fire on those cold nights and sit back and relax with a nice glass of red wine!


The drawing room also opens up to the conservatory which also has an outlook to the front and side garden, which is currently used as a formal dining area, the conservatory flows seamlessly around and through to the kitchen. The recently renovated kitchen compliments the Georgian feel also boasting a feature fireplace, central island and a aga. In the centre of the kitchen is an informal dining area comprising of a 4 seater table. Leading off the kitchen is a very practical utility room with loads of built-in storage/cupboards.

Continuing off the hallway through the lobby there is a large double bedroom with dual aspect views to the front and side of the property, opposite there is a recently refitted bathroom and a beautiful spiral staircase that rises to another very spacious bedroom that is currently used as home office which has an outlook to front, side and rears off the property which allow the room to fill with floods of light.

Accessed from the kitchen through the sunroom is the rear south facing garden, benefiting from a raised sun decked area, a paved patio dining area and a great feature caravan that has electric and heating and has been covered inside to provide a great place for a childs den. The garden also has a separate driveway access that leading back to the roadside.

The Barn/studio has access from the rear garden also benefiting from a separate access off the main driveway.

Vendor's Interview - We immediately recognised that Pickford House had tremendous potential to become a fabulous family home and it was that, combined with the rural setting and surrounding land was what attracted us over 20 years ago, says the vendor.
Pickford House was a typical working farmhouse with a separate coach house and both required total renovation and restoration. Luckily we managed to retain and restore or replace many of the original features of the house which dates back to the Regency period. I still remember we replaced all the windows and one of my favourite features are the wooden cabinets in the drawing room that houses the original Georgian wooden window shutters. The original fireplaces had been removed downstairs, so we painstakingly replaced them with original period pieces, as well as three Art Nouveau cast iron fireplaces in the breakfast room, hallway and the adjoining cottage, all the 7 fireplaces take real fires
Pickford Green is a rural hamlet surrounded by some beautiful walks through surrounding fields, yet we benefit from incredibly easy access to transport links including Birmingham Airport and Birmingham International Rail station, as well as the M1, M42, M40, M45 and M6 motorways. Coventry rail station is just a 20 minute drive away and from there, we can be in London Euston in less than an hour. Meriden and Balsall Common are nearby for all of the day to day essentials.
Approached via high double gates to a wide pebbled driveway, Pickford House is well screened by huge douglas firs and mature hedging and fencing and cannot be seen from the road. The front garden has recently been landscaped and has a large patio and covered BBQ area, ideal for entertaining friends and family, even when it rains! The rear garden is very secluded and the feel of the beautiful walled garden transports us to Italy when we enjoy a coffee in the sunshine.
Favourite room
The conservatory is a lovely, light and bright room, even on the darkest of days.
Favourite aspect of the grounds or surrounding area
Pickford Green is a small hamlet, yet were only 5 minutes away from everything that we need.
Memorable event (if not another favourite room or unique feature)
Weve celebrated a number of milestone birthdays with a marquee and hog roast in the garden. There is substantial parking space for cars to the side and rear of the property making it ideal for large gatherings.
What theyll miss most / why they are leaving
Pickford House is a perfect home for a family and as our children have now moved out, we are taking the opportunity to downsize but we will miss the beautiful house, the original features as well as the fabulous location.
