The property is situated in a prime position set back on the highly 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.
