8 High Street
An exquisite gentleman's residence, located on one of the most sought after roads on the highly desirable Four Oaks Estate.
Set in a plot 1.25 acres with beautiful south facing grounds, is well suited as a family home with spacious and flexible ground, first and second floor accommodation, adaptable to varying domestic requirements.
The property is located on the highly desirable Four Oaks Estate, an exclusive residential area lying along the northern and eastern borders of Sutton Park, known for its suburban charm and excellent amenities.
The Four Oaks Estate is originally part of a large forestry to encompass the adjoining Sutton Park. The Estate was initially laid out in the 1890s when the Four Oaks Park was bought by the Marquis of Clanricarde. The area was then developed as an exclusive private residential Estate and covenants encumbered on the residences have ensured that the Four Oaks Estate has preserved itself as a most attractive and highly desirable place to live.
Nearby Sutton Park, which is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest, and more recently the site host for the triathlon competitions of the Common Wealth Games, offers a great scope for walking, golf and a variety of outdoor pursuits.
Four Oaks benefits from excellent transportation links and is well placed for access to regional centres and the motorway network. Birmingham is only 10 miles distant, and the M6 Toll (T5) is just 4 miles away giving fast access to the M6 and M42 and HS2 in the future. The Four Oaks train station connects residents to Birmingham New Street and Lichfield City, making commuting to nearby cities convenient.
Day to day amenities can be found a short distance from the property. Mere Green offers a selection of supermarkets and an array of restaurants, bars, boutique shops and salons, all in walkable distance from the property.
Four Oaks tennis club is located at the end of Luttrell Road, Moor Hall and Little Aston Golf Club are close by.
Sutton Coldfield provides excellent schooling including Bishop Vesey's Grammar School, Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls and Highclare School. Purchasers are advised to check with the Council for up-to-date information on school catchment areas.
