Summary: Originally the game keeper's lodge for Bordesley Hall, this charming 19th century cottage offers a wealth of period character, flexible accommodation and lovely gardens located in a private position adjacent to open fields, yet within a mile of Alvechurch village centre and with easy access to the M42 (junction 2).

Description: The enclosed porch offers a guest cloakroom and leads further into a beautiful, welcoming entrance hall. The elegant main sitting room is a bright, south facing room complete with bay window, feature open fire and built in shelving. The terracotta tiled farmhouse kitchen has an AGA, pantry, laundry room (with garden access) and adjacent formal dining/family room with built in bookcases, open fireplace and French doors onto the garden. An additional spacious reception room (currently utilised as an office) offers many flexible uses.

On the first floor, the principal bedroom features a built in wardrobe and fireplace and there are two further double bedrooms (one with magnificent views of the garden), fourth double bedroom (currently set up as a single room with built in box bed, fireplace and garden views), shower room and separate bathroom with linen cupboard.

Outside: The extensive wrap around gardens offer a great secluded entertaining space and feature a plethora of mature fruit trees, pretty planted borders, vegetable patch, sizeable lawn, raised patio for al fresco dinnig and shed. Parking includes a driveway suitable for multiple vehicles as well as a double garage.

Location: Located between the semi rural hamlet of Rowney Green and the village of Alvechurch, the property is well positioned for the local first and middle school within Alvechurch itself as well as shopping and eating facilities, walks along the local canal network and railway station which provides a regular service via the Cross City line to Birmingham New Street and beyond. Rowney Green's village activities revolve around the nearby Village Hall where there is a thriving community pub every Friday evening and regular social events and classes, as well as playing fields and tennis courts.
