Well proportioned rooms, character, landscaped gardens, views, potential, Hillside has it all. It is easy to see why the owners have enjoyed living here for as long as they have. Referenced some 300-400 years ago the country residence now standing proudly on site is perhaps a far cry from the modest cottage that it once was but the reoccurrence of tremendous oak wood beams and fabulous fireplaces leave you wishing they could tell you their stories.
The welcoming Reception Hallway with Guest W.C. leads to a well-proportioned Dining Room which in turn gives access to the Kitchen open plan with a versatile Family/Breakfast/Sitting Area. There’s a Utility which doubles as a ‘Summer’ Kitchen for the Owners aptly named for when the Aga gets turned off. A Rear Boot Room leads to the large Conservatory which has fantastic, uninterrupted views over the Garden and Grounds.
The First Floor Landing is bright and airy and offers useful storage and airing cupboards, Doors then in turn lead to The principal bedroom would shame the best of Hotels as the dressing room, walk in wardrobe, luxury en-suite and large bedroom area are comfortably selfish and certainly take the breath of those visiting. Don’t be fooled however into thinking this comes as a compromise to the remaining bedrooms. In fact, bedrooms Two and Three are sizeable Double bedrooms and the Fourth bedroom whilst currently used as a Study also offers space for a double, if required. A Family Bathroom completes the accommodation.
Outside the driveway is generous and gated. The gardens have been superbly landscaped and whilst offering easy maintenance are well established to the surround to secure your rural outlook.
The later garden areas offer wonderful views over Shustoke Reservoir and arguably, the more engaging rear elevation of the property which is very easy on the eye. There’s even a separate Right of Way access for those with a small Horse or Pony to use should you prefer to use it from the Eastern roadside boundary.
Nether Whitacre is a vibrant little village. Close to transport networks such as the M42, leading on to the M6 and M6 Toll road. Equally you can leave the countryside setting and be within the larger towns of Sutton Coldfield, Tamworth or market town of Coleshill for shopping excursions.
Birmingham International (train station) and Airport are within a 20 minutes’ drive which can make it quite hard to believe the countryside setting you return to each day.
Nearby Whitacre Heath offers a pub, local shop and primary school.
For those favouring outdoors pursuits, Kingsbury Water Park is right on your doorstep with all manner of activities taking place week on week, great for riding the bikes round and in summer term take a trip on the miniature railway – a personal favourite for the Kingsman Founder, David and his family.
Equally, there is the popular indoor ski centre the ‘Snow Dome’ located in Tamworth, Drayton Manor Theme Park, Tamworth Castle or the extensive Golf and Spa facilities at the Belfry.
