    “A good base for a family reunion.”

    Roughly midway between Norfolk, the West Country and Humberside White House Drive was good, convenient place to organise a family get-together. Perhaps in need of a little TLC here and there White House Drive was a spacious, very comfortable, warm house with excellent facilities in a lovely quiet location just off the motorway. A good kitchen, varied sitting areas, spacious bedrooms and, unusually, an adequate no' of bathrooms. And I must mention the management team who responded well and promptly to a small issue we raised. The negetives: some quirky plumbing, an overgrown rear garden and a rather restricted driveway (for our five cars), the photo and description of the drive is a little misleading. The family enjoyed a good reunion.

The property

Tucked away on its own private driveway, in a shaded, leafy green area of Worcestershire, is this magnificent detached house in Lickey.

Perfectly positioned near the village of Barnt Green, this redbrick cottage with a half-timbered aspect, presents homely living to a luxurious standard.

Wonderfully enticing over two capacious floors, this Worcestershire cottage is ideal for large families looking to relax and unwind in a pleasant residential situation.

The sleeping arrangements are of a varied assortment, sweeping across the first floor.

There is a spacious king-size double with an en-suite shower, a cosy twin room, a light and airy family room with a king-size and a single bed along with another two king-size rooms, one comprising an en-suite bathroom.

They are all thoughtfully decorated to a high-quality standard in fresh, neutral colours with modern furnishings.

Downstairs you will be welcomed into a warmhearted living room, providing lots of plush seating to spread yourselves out and make the most of this tranquil haven.

Doors open out from here and the fine dining room next door, to the extensive lawned garden enclosed at the rear, with ornamental features and a patio with furniture.

This is a great space for the kids to run around while you enjoy the splendour of indoors.

Back inside the large open-plan kitchen is optimised by a stunning breakfast bar, granite worktops and a wonderful sun room creating harmony with the pleasant outdoor space.

Leading off from here is the snug cinema room featuring comfy seats, for you and the family to snuggle up together in a cosy setting.

Use this as your base for touring the wonderful area of Worcestershire, explore the scenic landscapes, dive into history at one of the many museums or spend your time with golf, fishing, climbing or horse riding.
