Seller Insight - It was the location of the property which first attracted the current owners to 34b, Blythe Way. The house is ideally placed for Solihull school and just a 20 minute commute from our work in Warwick, they say, as well as being within walking distance of all the amenities of Solihull. It is wonderful to be able to stroll into town for shopping or simply to meet with friends for a cup of coffee.
The house is tucked away behind a gated entrance and long lawned driveway, the owners continue, so that you wouldnt even know it was there from the road. We really do have the best of both worlds here, in a quiet setting that feels very rural, whilst being close to town and all the convenience this affords.
Since moving in, the owners have made various improvements to the property both inside and out. We have redecorated the interior, they say, including the addition of a beautiful bamboo wall in the kitchen and living area which makes the space even more special and cosy. Outside, we had the roof cleaned and treated against moss, and re-landscaped the garden with lawns, shrubs and flowerbeds to create a more modern outside space, making the most of its position overlooking the nature reserve in the nearby park.
The property is ideal for everyday life and entertaining alike. The house itself is perfect for parties, say the owners, with the openness of the kitchen and living area, and a separate dining room which also serves as a bar on special occasions. The stunning lights in the kitchen create the ideal dance-floor ambience, with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor encouraging guests to kick off their shoes and enjoy themselves needless to say, all our friends love it here!
We shall miss our beautiful kitchen, as well as the open vistas and quiet atmosphere the property affords.
This really is such a special location, with even the guest bedroom proffering picturesque views over the garden and fields beyond.
We love being able to walk down into town whenever we feel like it, whether for necessities or to meet up with friends in one of the many cosy cafes.
The kitchen and living area is where we spend much of our time, while the lounge provides the perfect music room for singing and piano practice.
