There are a number of exceptional schools in Blackwell and the surrounding areas, with Blackwell First School being in the heart of the Village. There are numerous local shopping facilities, with Blackwell being served by a Village Shop for those everyday essentials. Just a short distance away the neighbouring Barnt Green Village offers a wide range of shops to include a Tesco Express, butchers, delis and greengrocers, in addition to clothing boutiques, salons and eateries. For that larger weekly shop, Bromsgrove plays host to Morrisons and Asda, with Sainsbury's being in nearby Redditch.
The stunning Lickey Hills are just a short distance away offering wonderful walks that enjoy panoramic views over the surrounding countryside, and Blackwell has excellent access to the M5 and M42 motorways, and to the A38. There are train stations in Barnt Green and Alvechurch with regular services to Birmingham and Redditch, and there is also a bus service running through this well connected Village.
The property is entered by a very attractive solid wood door being part double glazed with stained and leaded light windows with complimentary panels to either side, and this opens into an Open Porch area with lighting, coat hooks, double glazed window to side. There is then open access into the RECEPTION HALL/SITTING ROOM. This welcoming space has superb high ceilings with coving and a feature wood burning cast iron stove is a most attractive focal point to this room. There is an original built-in store cupboard with drawers to the chimney breast recess and from this room doors radiate off to the Kitchen, Stairs and Reception Hall. The SPACIOUS KITCHEN is fitted with an excellent range of base cupboards with drawers and wicker basket drawers, wall mounted cupboards, open display shelving, china display cabinet all complimented by a granite work surface having inset Belfast sink with mixer tap over.

From the main Reception, to the right is an Inner Hall/Music Room having two windows to the side aspect, recess lighting, wood flooring and double doors opening to the DINING ROOM. The wood effect flooring continues into this room and again this room has superb high ceilings with picture rail coving and double glazed French doors give access to the patio area. There is a further double glazed window.
Continuing on through the Inner Hallway there is access to the Sitting Room, Utility and Guest WC. The GUEST WC is fitted with a white suite comprising toilet and wall mounted wash hand basin, and there is tiled flooring, recess lighting and a double glazed window.
The excellent UTILITY is fitted with a range of base cupboards and there is space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. Inset into the work surface is a stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap and there is a wall mounted cupboard housing the central heating boiler. There are double glazed windows to two aspects and double glazed door giving access outside.
The light and spacious LOUNGE is a superb character room enhanced by the gas log burner style fire, oak flooring and two double glazed sash windows. Set into the oak flooring are power points enabling the side lamps to be controlled from the main light switches.
The character of this lovely period property continues upstairs. The MAIN BEDROOM has high ceilings, stripped wood floors, and a double glazed window enjoying the views of the landscaped garden.
Just along from the Main Bedroom there is a Dressing Room which has a range of fitted wardrobes with sliding doors, hanging rails and cupboards over, also incorporating a built-in dressing table, and there is a recessed fully tiled shower cubicle.
The HOUSE BATHROOM is fitted with a suite comprising WC, claw foot roll top bath with telephone style shower attachment, 'his and hers' sinks mounted into tiling with mirrors and lighting over. There is also a shaver point and airing cupboard housing the hot water tank.
Next along from the House Bathroom we find BEDROOM FIVE, and opposite, BEDROOM TWO is a generous sized double and having a large window ensuring this room is filled with light and also enjoys views over the landscaped garden.
Moving along the Landing there are four steps down and to BEDROOM THREE & FOUR which are both good sized Double Bedrooms both with lovely high ceilings.
Special attention should be paid also to the outside of the property as in recent years the current owners have landscaped the gardens to include a paved terrace and a cobble stone style path which runs down the full length of the garden and leads to the raised bed/vegetable garden and a picket fence then separates the garden from the driveway and the single garage. The Garden contains an array of mature trees and shrubbery, a most generous lawned area and herbaceous borders. The entrance to the property has also been thoughtfully landscaped with gravel paths, raised beds and a pergola
