2 Bedroom Semi-Detached House (Now Let)
146 Longmore Road, Shirley, Solihull, West Midlands
Important Note: The property is officially available from 26th July 2015, however the current tenant may be prepared to vacate from mid-July onwards - subject to negotiation. No pets or smoking permitted.
Longmore Road stretches between Blossomfield Road and the Stratford Road, and is therefore in close proximity to both Solihull and Shirley town centres. As Union Road carries the through-traffic away from Longmore Road, this property is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the many local transport links but still remains relatively quiet.
Longmore Road is within the catchment area for a number of excellent schools in the Solihull area including Tudor Grange Senior School. The most local primary schools are Blossomfield Infant School and Shirley Heath Junior School. The latest catchment areas should be confirmed with Solihull Council’s Education Department.
Solihull is a great place and has all you need in terms of shopping and evening entertainment. There is a strong community, numerous business and leisure parks, nationally renowned schooling and the countryside on its doorstep. Shirley is an important part of Solihull Borough and has its own range of supermarkets, shops and restaurants, as well as a Retail Park on Marshall Lake Road. The major new Parkgate Shopping Centre in Shirley Town Centre which opens in Spring 2014 also promises much.
Birmingham City Centre and Stratford-upon-Avon are within easy reach as the area is served by various bus and train links. The national motorway network can be accessed within a few minutes via the M42 and Solihull also boasts Birmingham International Airport and Rail Station. Direct trains to London are available from the local stations of Solihull and Widney Manor.
