Charming Victorian home with seven bedrooms located in the aspirational village of Dorridge marketed at £1,750,000

A lap of luxury awaits the lucky family who buys this charming Victorian family home in the exclusive village of Dorridge within the  borough of Solihull, which is up for sale with DM & Co. Homes.

The stunning seven-bedroomed house called Rosemary Croft is set over four floors at 10 Granville Road in Dorridge and comes with a guide price of £1,750,000.

Kathy Griffiths, head of premium properties at DM & Co. Homes, explained that the 19th century semi-detached property has been “beautifully updated” by the current owners, retaining its original features.

Mrs Griffiths said: “This house is simply gorgeous – completely renovated but in a way that works sympathetically with the original features and Victorian charm of the property.

“The high ceilings, sash windows, deep skirting boards and towering chimneys all add to drama of what is a fabulous family home, with space totalling some 3,540 sq ft.

“The house is approached through an iron gate to the driveway and has two generous reception rooms on the ground floor.

“The front sitting room has cosy log burner and impressive sash bay window flooding the room with natural light, while the dining room with large marble fireplace flows seamlessly into the extended kitchen diner.

“This is a well-planned extension joining the dining room and utility area and dividing them into natural zones, one a relaxing lounge looking over the pretty garden, the other a dining space and kitchen where natural light floods in through a large lantern roof.

“The kitchen itself is breath-taking with Italian marble worktops, handmade solid wood shaker-style cupboards and a large island hosting an induction hob.

“Fittings include a self-cleaning, Neff oven with slide and hide door, plus a combi oven and microwave and a large Aga to keep the area warm in winter months.

“The spacious utility includes a downstairs toilet and shower, plus a large storage closet leading to a huge cellar offering lots of additional storage, plus housing the heating system.

“A stunning Victorian staircase with enchanting decorative finials rises to the first floor, where a generous landing leads to three delightful bedrooms and a large, sumptuous family bathroom fitted with porcelain tiles, oversized shower and bath tub.

“One bedroom has been converted into a spacious dressing room, with the principal and second bedrooms both boasting modern ensuite bathrooms.

“There are four further bedrooms on the top floor, two currently used as large home offices, with the other two double bedrooms having fitted wardrobes, one with a quirky little snug.”

Mrs Griffiths went on to describe the rear garden as a delightful, private and landscaped space with mature shrubs and trees around several seating areas.

She added: “An oak framed garage currently acts a workshop, but could easily be transformed into a home gym, games room or home bar and entertaining room, and there is plenty of space behind the gate for more vehicles.”

Rosemary Croft is within Dorridge’s prestigious ‘Golden Triangle’, in the catchment area for the Arden Academy and close to the village centre, where amenities include Sainsbury’s, The Forest Hotel and lots of independent shops.

Dorridge Train Station is just five minutes’ walk away and has with direct trains via the Chiltern Line to Birmingham and London, while the M42 is just a few minutes’ drive away.

The National Trust buildings of Packwood House and Baddesley Clinton are close by, while Solihull town centre is just three miles away, plus Henley-in-Arden and Stratford-upon-Avon both short drives away.
