Description

This is modern living in all its majesty. An Instagram worthy and thoughtfully designed family home perched in gently gentrified Knowle, this large three bedroom, two bathroom property is in visiting distance of some of Warwickshire’s most beautiful National Trust buildings, walking distance of tip top schools, and striking distance of Solihull in one direction and Dorridge in the other.

Knowle pairs quintessential village living with a cool, friendly community vibe. This is the setting of great schools, close to the coveted Copt Heath Golf Course and boasts a smorgasbord of dining on your doorstep, including Glynn Purnell’s incoming eponymous restaurant.

For a home with cool style and comfort in equal measure, turn your attention to this modern façade, a well-appointed, deftly designed property with an easy-going, playful, yet impactful design approach. This home is ready to wear.

Every nook and cranny of this space has been considered and utilised to full effect. From the cutest cubby hole under the stairs, to the playroom and separate store set into the front of the home, maximising the former garage, the owners here have understood how to live and live well.

Upon entering the hallway, you’re welcomed by light and space, in part thanks to the extended front portion of the house, set with an a-frame porch, which opens up the entrance room to reveal a balanced and welcoming ground floor.

Seamlessly flow past the (now essential) study space with vaulted ceiling and children’s playroom into a convivial lounge. Fans of Farrow and Ball rejoice at the tones of blue, grey and green adorning walls throughout the entire home; it is a masterclass in balancing dark and moody without losing light, space and texture.

An exposed brick fireplace and feature panelled wall gives this lounge a sense of sumptuous living for movie nights or peaceful reading hours alike. The wood burner and down lights set into recessed shelving will be all the mood lighting needed come the darker months. With every corner turned there is something new to marvel at. From the modernised Georgian style panelled wall to the bijou desk set up, work, rest and play live in harmony.

Breathing life and light into the ground floor is the wrap-around kitchen-diner. This hub of the home is bathed in sunlight with Velux windows providing the rooftop rays and French doors opening up onto a large, informal, inside/out decking area. The fully-fitted kitchen, topped in granite for glorious surface appeal, plays host to an impressive island for your morning coffee, weekend pizza making and everything in between. Integrated appliances complete the kitchen space leading around the island of dreams into the bright dining segment.

Upstairs a calming, private family-oriented floor presents three double bedrooms, voluminous built-in storage, master en-suite for the grown ups and a beautiful, fully refitted bathroom, resplendent in light from the dual aspect windows, highlighting the centrepiece free-standing bathtub and offering a separate shower cubicle.

Oak doors throughout soften the edges of the smoky masculine tones and reconnect indoors with natural elements. Engineered wood flooring also flows underfoot downstairs in a contemporary herringbone, punctuated with soft, pure wool carpets in the bedrooms and beautiful blush patterned tiling in the master bath.

The landscaped garden’s raised deck with feature slated wall creates that town house garden living, secluded, peaceful and well-equipped for lazy, hazy summer evenings. Sleeper planters offer up luscious borders and even the children’s play area is a design dream - a Peter Pan-esque imagination station.

Nestled on the corner of Lightwood Close, this property comes complete with charming location and a cool modern aesthetic for timeless living.
