A luxury development of houses has been launched on the Hall Farm Estate in Knowle, near Solihull.
It is being built by Spitfire Bespoke Homes and will be a collection of just 13 properties in a privately gated scheme set in a peaceful rural location yet less than a mile from the centre of Knowle village.
The properties will offer a variety of styles including a thatched cottage, substantial villa, barn conversions and brand new barn-style properties.
The estate is approached from a sweeping driveway that leads to a central landscaped courtyard with open views across the countryside.
All of the homes have been designed with traditional features that are sympathetic to their rural surroundings and reflect the area’s agricultural history, while incorporating modern building techniques.
The first homes to be brought to the market at the development will be the elegant four bedroom barn-style Aston, Highbury and Perry properties, the five-bedroom barn-style Ettington and Hinnington properties, and the Arbury.
All of them will be finished to a high spec with stylish open plan kitchen and family rooms, individually designed kitchens by Poggenpohl with energy efficient, fully-integrated appliances and bathrooms benefitting from sanitary ware by Villeroy & Boch.
Wood-burning stoves provide focal points in the spacious open-plan living areas designed to cater to the needs of the modern family. The interiors maximise natural light while bi-folding doors lead out to extensive private gardens.
Many of the homes will have vaulted ceilings to certain rooms while extensive glazing will often extend across two-storeys or bring light to central stairwells.
Esther Broomhall, from John Shepherd, who are joint selling agents with Hunters, said: “All the properties are inspired by the history of the existing farm buildings and the juxtaposition of both old and new – with large, elegant glazed panels used to fill voids and accentuate the textures of the historic facades – offers beautiful properties brimming with charm.”
The homes at Hall Farm Estate have been designed to be as environmentally-friendly as possible, with reclaimed materials used across the estate and an efficient biomass district system providing heating and hot water to each of the properties. It is surrounded by open green spaces while still close to the boutique shops and convenience stores of Knowle village and all of the amenities in nearby Solihull.
Junction 5 of the M42 is only a few minutes away and the development also provides easy access to Birmingham Airport.
Prices for the properties start from £700,000.
