The village of Little Aston is located in the heart of Sutton Coldfield and is renowned for its high calibre residents. It’s not uncommon to see Premiership footballers and Warwickshire County Cricket Club players in the vicinity and in the 1980s Little Aston was home to 007 himself, Mr. Roger Moore.
Properties for sale in this part of Little Aston are rare, therefore much sought-after, so we are delighted to offer for sale this palatial 6/5 bedroom detached family home which offers so much potential to its new owner. Set within its own private drive on a private estate, the house is immaculately presented internally, and is surrounded by a large family garden which skirts the perimeter of the property.
ExternalLittle Aston Park is a privately maintained estate consisting of around 100 unique, architect-designed houses in a woodland setting.
The approach to the property is via a gated private driveway. Fronted by a large gravel driveway and landscaping, there’s parking for several vehicles and a gate leading to the grounds at the rear. The integrated double garage has an internal access doorway leading into the house.
Ground FloorA hardwood and half-glazed double door opens into the large welcoming reception hall. The wooden flooring throughout the property gives a warm ambience, and the first impression is how spacious the living accommodation is. A guest WC is located off the reception hall which could easily be converted into a home office or gym space, as well as doors leading to the remainder of the ground floor accommodation and stairs to the first floor.
The first of two sitting rooms overlooks the front of the house. Due to the layout, this space would make an ideal games room/den for the teenagers of the family, or perhaps a quiet space to pass the time with a cuppa and a good book. With a shower room next to the sitting room, it could easily be used as a guest room as it would afford privacy for your visitors, having their own ground-floor shower room and WC.
Two floor-to-ceiling storage cupboards are located in the hall area adjacent to the shower room.
The main family sitting room is located at the rear of the house, with two sets of glazed double doors framing the feature fireplace with its natural brick surround and real-effect coal fire.
This is a family space for all seasons, with the double doors opening out onto the rear patio area for evening soirees and al fresco dining during the warmer months of the year. While away those winter evenings with the family enjoying a movie night as the fireplace adds a cosy warmth and glow. Make the space your own with comfy sofas to relax on after a hard day’s work.
A set of part-glazed hardwood doors leads us through to the dining room. Natural light floods in through glazed double doors, to match those in the main sitting room. Large and spacious, the dining room is where the family can gather together for an evening meal, entertain friends and family, and celebrate a birthday or Christmas in style.
The kitchen is accessed via the dining room and the reception hall. Finished in oak, there’s plenty of storage both above and below the roll-top work surfaces. With ample space for a kitchen table, this room could easily become the hub of the family home, with frantic weekday breakfasts, lazy weekend brunches and relaxed tea times after work or school. You also have the option to knock the wall through to create ultimate open-plan living to host and feed guests.
Gadget-lovers will never be short of power sockets – there’s seven of them dotted around the kitchen so there’ll be no need to unplug the toaster when you need to charge your phone! Included in the sale are the integrated appliances including dishwasher, five-ring gas hob with extractor above and oven below, and an eye-level integrated microwave.
Across the rear hallway from the kitchen is where you’ll find the utility room, consisting of further oak-finished storage units above a work surface. Two sinks and a mixer tap are built into the worktops, with storage below, as well as space for a washing machine and tumble drier. Given its proximity to the kitchen, there’s also plenty of scope to keep both an upright freezer and a fridge in the utility room.
The integrated garage can be accessed from the rear hallway via a hardwood door. There is also a third WC in this area of the property.
The fourth reception room overlooks the garden on the side aspect of the house, and has three sets of glazed double doors, to match those in the main sitting room and dining room. The current owner has created a home gymnasium in this space, however, with its natural light and calming views, it would make a perfect home office or games room given its distance from the rest of the family home.
The floors in this part of the property (kitchen, utility room, rear hallway, WC no.3 and reception room no.4) are tiled for easy maintenance.
First FloorA wooden staircase leads from the main reception hall to the galleried first floor landing with access to the loft space.
The impressive master bedroom has dual-aspect windows with one side looking over the front driveway and the other enjoying extensive woodland views and the greens of Little Aston Golf Club. Storage will never be an issue with an abundance of built-in storage cupboards/wardrobes.
The recessed ceiling lights, wooden floor and three sets of windows make this a bright, inviting room with plenty of options when it comes to creating the perfect space to retire to at the end of the day. The pitched ceiling adds further character to the room.
The master bedroom has its own large en suite bathroom, fitted with WC and bidet, a double sink unit with storage beneath, bathtub with hand-shower attachment, and a double walk-in shower cubicle. Again, natural light floods in with windows to two aspects.
Bedroom two features space-saving built-in wardrobes and an alcove for a double bed. This room also has its own en suite bathroom, with a suite comprising WC, pedestal wash basin, bath, and separate walk-in shower cubicle.
Bedrooms three and four are both double in size, with fitted wardrobed to bedroom three. Bedroom five is a single room and benefits from fitted wardrobes.
The first floor accommodation is completed by the family bathroom, with a suite comprising WC, pedestal basin, bath with hand shower attachment and separate walk-in shower cubicle.
With three bathrooms on the first floor, and the shower room on the ground floor, you’ll never be rushed out the bathroom ever again.
GardenThe garden snakes itself around the property, giving ample space to enjoy the great outdoors. Adjacent to the main family sitting room and dining room there’s a raised patio area – the perfect place to unwind with a G&T after a long day at work or fire up the barbecue for a spot of summer entertaining. Mature trees and hedging border the grounds, with views overlooking Little Aston Golf Club. A peaceful environment to sit and enjoy nature or just pass the time of day in a sun lounger.
LocationIt’s easy to see why Little Aston Park attracts the affluent and well-heeled. As well as having Little Aston Golf Club next door to the property, it is close to Sutton Park. For fans of racquet sports, there’s a tennis club nearby and for those looking for somewhere to relax, Little Aston Park is only a 5 minute drive from The Fairlawns Hotel & Spa which also has a fabulous A La Carte restaurant.
Enjoy coffee culture in one of the many local coffee shops, and a Co-Op convenience store is on the doorstep for all of those everyday grocery needs.
