The property is very well situated on Lightwoods Hill between Beechwood Road and Harborne Road. There is easy access to the Queen Elizabeth and City Hospitals, Birmingham University and also local amenities in Harborne and Bearwood as well as benefitting from easy access to regular transport services along Hagley Road to the city centre.
However, it is the property’s vicinity to Warley Woods that really makes this a special family home! There is a 9 hole golf course directly opposite the house – in winter you can even see whether the first fairway is clear enough to sneak out and fit in a quick 9 holes! If you’re into fitness, the park area is fitted with resistance fitness machines and there are some lovely walks around the woods. For the kids, there are free golf lessons in the holidays and loads of room on the meadow to fly kites or have a picnic. There are lots of community groups for runners, walkers, bird-watchers, dog-walkers etc and the café does a lovely bacon sandwich (as well as some pretty mouth-watering cakes!)
