SELLERS COMMENTS This has been our home for nearly 18 years. We bought the property in 2003 from Mrs O who lived here for over 20 years bringing up her family. The two sheds and mature trees in the garden are testament to her husband's green fingers.
The garden gets sun all day; from outside the bi-fold doors first thing in the morning moving around to rest on the decking area at top of the garden at dusk. The front of the house enjoys the sun all day...though in the hot summer months it maintains an interior coolness that is a relief to step into.
The view from the front of the house has not changed in all the years, with lovely views over the fields opposite. The footpath across the road is access to some great walking routes over toward Barston and Knowle. A wander down Marsh Lane leads to the 15th century Packhorse Bridge and walks around the lake next to West Midlands Golf Course. Our house is just a few minutes' walk to the Corner Shop, Post Office, Church, doctors surgery and two pubs. The Ofsted 'Outstanding' George Fentham School is round the corner and is great, with both our boys enjoying their time there.
The master bedroom has views overlooking the hills towards Balsall Common, which are particularly beautiful in the Autumn months.
Over the years we have added and changed a few things; 2007 the playroom and utility were created from what was the old coal shed area. In 2015 the loft was converted and in 2018 the kitchen was extended to include a snug area.
We are moving locally and will still be in the village, living with close family. Hampton-in-Arden is a lovely place to live, with lots of community things to get involved with if you wish.... from walking, arts and history groups to the sports club facility with tennis, hockey, boules and squash clubs. Beyond the sports club is the woods and the village arboretum, providing lots more walking opportunities. This is a lovely home and great village to live.
