The property is located on a private road on the sought-after Four Oaks Estate. The Four Oaks Estate is an exclusive residential area lying along the northern and eastern borders of Sutton Park. Originally the site of Four Oaks Hall, the house and its surrounding land were sold in 1868 to Hubert de Burgh-Canning, 2nd Marquess of Clanricarde for residential development. Four Oaks Hall was demolished in 1898. Covenants have ensured the Four Oaks Estate has been preserved as a most attractive and highly desirable place to live with tree-lined private roads; their names derived from its historical past. The Estate is now situated in a Conservation Area.
Sutton Park is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest and offers great scope for walking, golf and a variety of outdoor pursuits. Four Oaks tennis club is also close by.
Nearby Mere Green provides a good selection of everyday shops including M&S and Sainsbury's supermarkets and the newly formed Mulberry Walk development hosts a fabulous range of eateries, cafes, and restaurants.
One of the many advantages of the area is its location for fast communications to the M42, M6, M6 Toll, and Birmingham International/NEC. The Cross City line from Four Oaks station, only a short walk from the property, connects to main line services from Birmingham New Street.
The town of Sutton Coldfield provides an excellent choice of shops, restaurants and schooling including Bishop Vesey's Grammar School, Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls and Highclare School. The independent King Edward's schools are also easily reached from Four Oaks station. Purchasers are advised to check with the council for up to date school catchment areas.

Description of Property
This four-bedroom family residence occupies a spacious plot with generously sized front, side, and rear gardens on a private road on the prestigious Four Oaks Estate.
The gravel driveway, flanked on one side by a well-maintained front lawn and mature trees and shrubs, leads to the canopy porch opening up into the reception hallway. The hallway provides access to the main living accommodation and also features a guest cloakroom and handy cupboard under the stairs. The ground-floor doors, stairs, and landing balustrade are all in the same stunning mahogany.
Through double doors from the hall, the drawing room spans across the right side of the home and looks out both over the front and rear of the property. A stunning feature along one wall is the antique marble fireplace with burnished metal surround and black slate hearth. Sliding glass doors lead out to the rear garden and allow for plenty of natural light to fill the room.
The dining room, also accessed through double doors and featuring rear aspect, is conveniently set in between the kitchen and drawing room, and forms a wonderful space for entertaining and dinner parties.
The study, bright and filled with natural light, offers an ideal space for working from home overlooking the well-presented front gardens.
The spacious kitchen features a range of cream wall and floor units, complemented by the cream worktop, offering plenty of storage and workspace. The space features various built-in appliances, including a Neff double oven, under-counter integrated fridge, and a four-ring hob with hidden pull-out extractor above. There is ample space for a dishwasher and an informal dining/breakfast area. Leading on from the kitchen is the family area: ideal for relaxing after dinner. Sliding glass doors lead out to the rear patio and provide a lovely outlook over the greenery in the garden beyond.
A utility is located just off the kitchen, offering additional work and storage space as well as space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. A door from the utility leads out to the side of the property.
