PROPERTY IN BRIEF
Ginger are proud to present this unique opportunity to acquire a spacious and private four bedroom detached bungalow within this highly desirable address. Being within easy reach of the bustling Henley-in-Arden, and within shorter reach of the main A3400, which leads you up to the M42 motorway. The location is also convenient to Stratford-upon-Avon, Solihull town centre while enjoying that tucked away and secluded setting. The property offers reach and good transport to popular schools in Henley in Arden primary and secondary. Busses to Shottery, Alcester and King Edwards Boys.
The property itself enjoys a generous driveway to the front for multiple cars, and a key feature being the large rear west-facing and private garden.
Inside, the property has a welcoming hallway, four spacious bedrooms, a family bathroom all on the one side of the property, whilst offering a peaceful sitting room with feature period log-burning fire and period fireplace, with French doors to tempt you out to the rear garden, as well as a separate larger family/entertainments room. The kitchen/breakfast is a nice size, enjoying the garden view, as well as having a separate utility with a further cloakroom leading off.
Outside, the rear garden is a fantastic size, perfect if you’re looking for that larger private garden, being west-facing and with a generous patio area. In addition, there is a side garage.
The owners also have a share of land just along the road. This share will be transfered.
Subject to the correct permissions, this property screams out the opportunity to go into the roof space, particularly as it already provides triple dormer-style windows to the front. The idea being to place a spiral staircase in the hallway, leading up to what may be a principal bedroom suite/office. All the options are endless. There may also be the opportunity to extend the property out from the rear, again all subject to the right approvals.
Buckley Green is a much sought-after address, and one that not too many people know about, therefore offering a degree of privacy, with a semi-rural lifestyle, yet close to Henley-in-Arden, and excellent commuter links.
The driveway is generous, being block paved with a contrasting edging, and will easily accommodate several family sized cars. In fact, the current owners do park their caravan on the drive, which we are informed is the largest that you are able to tow, and therefore demonstrates some of the space this drive has with the caravan easily tucked away. There is planted beds around the driveway, with access into the porch, and also access into the garage via the up and over door, as well as reaching into the garden. The drive is completed with iron gates and a low-level wall to the front.
Welcome inside. Firstly, you are greeted by an inner porch area, having a UPVC part-glazed door to the front elevation, with a further wooden door with frosted glass panels to lead you into the main hallway.
The moment that you step inside the hallway you appreciate the style and space that this property offers, it's a great surprise. The hallway is beautifully styled with traditional colours and mid-height wall panelling as a nod to current styling. The hallway gives access to the four bedrooms and family bathroom plus a further door leading in to the sitting room. The hallway has a central heating, ceiling lighting, and a handy spot as soon as you walk in for hanging your coats and kicking off your shoes.
The hallway is where you could place a spiral staircase into the loft adaption that we mentioned earlier.
The property benefits from two living room spaces, first of all, as you enter from the hallway, you find yourself in this very comfortable and cosy family sitting /reception room. The room is beautifully styled with a modern decor and boasting a feature period fireplace which has a log-burner built-in. A room that really shows itself off in the winter time, for those cosy winter evenings in front of the fire and a good movie, and also has the benefit of French patio doors leading out into the garden with accompanying windows to the side to ensure plenty of natural light as well as a gorgeous garden view. This room will easily accommodate multiple sofas, media centre and additional storage furniture as well as having a period Coat of Arms leaded feature door to take you into the kitchen. The sitting room also has a central heating radiator and twin ceiling lights.
The second family living space is accessed from the kitchen area, and set to the front of the house. This is larger space and perfect for the family to enjoy a good movie, particularly if you were to place a large TV on the wall or projection screen. It’s a great entertaining space as well, whether for your friends, family or if your children are having their mates around to have their own space out of the way. This room enjoys the large double glazed window to the front elevation, as well as a large central heating radiator. There are a good number of power points, telephone Open Reach point, TV aerial point, as well as an electric pebble effect fire on the wall.
The family kitchen/breakfast space offers a good floor area, and a comprehensive range of beech-style wall and base cabinets with contrasting granite work-surface. The key feature here is the delightful garden view through the large double glazed window to the rear where you will find an Armitage Shanks Belfast-style sink under with period taps, as well as having built-in appliances to include a Bosch double oven and grill, a Bosch electric hob with extractor hood over, an integrated dishwasher and an integrated fridge. There are plenty of power points around for your small appliances, and in addition to the kitchen area, there is plenty of space here for a breakfast dining table, as well as a modern central heating radiator and access into the separate utility.
The utility certainly takes the pressure off the kitchen, providing a workspace with plumbing and provisions for your washing machine, separate dryer, and plenty more room for additional fridge and freezers. There are a number of mid-height power points, controls for your central heating, and plenty of space here for the dog to sleep or feed the cats. There’s also a separate downstairs cloakroom which is accessed from the utility, providing a vanity storage unit with large wash basin and pedestal taps and a WC, tiled floors for ease of maintenance, and a double glazed window to the rear. Also extractor and ceiling spotlights. Both utility, kitchen and downstairs cloakroom have floor tiles for ease of maintenance, which is perfect for the muddy dog or children after football.
BEDROOMS & BATHROOM
Due to the age of this property, then it not only offers spacious living accommodation, but also the bedrooms are great sizes too. The configuration of this property means that the bedrooms are on one side the property, with the living spaces on the other which does work well. The bedrooms and family bathroom are located off the central hallway.
The main bedroom is a lovely size, super spacious, and perfect for your larger bed, accompanying side tables, and a generous wall for your free-standing wardrobes, or you may choose to have some fitted. There’s even more floor space for additional storage furniture, and the room boasts a large double glazed window to the front elevation which looks over the driveway and country views.

The bathroom is tied to the floor and most of the walls, having ceiling spotlights, extractor, shaver point, radiator, and a frosted opening double glazed window to the rear elevation.
When searching for a semi-rural property, one of your considerations is generally the outdoor garden space. We’ve already talked about the large driveway to the front, and now it is time to boast about the rear garden.

The garden is simply splendid, and having the benefit of a west-facing aspect, insuring a good tan on those hot sunny relaxing days. The garden is an excellent size, private, and perfect for the family where the children can play safely and the family dog running freely. The large patio is designed in a way to accommodate your comfy outdoor sofas and dining set, where a further patio around the side area is the ideal spot to tuck away your bins, greenhouse and storage, whilst also having a door leading into the garage.
This garden space really is something special, and whether you just like a quiet relaxing area, or somewhere to entertain friends, this home certainly delivers on that front.
