side passage which also leads from the kitchen gives access to the rear
garden and back through to the gym.
Seller Insight Glenruel is a superb, spacious family home in the pleasant rural setting of Tidbury Green village, only a few miles from Solihull.
The present owners Mark and Sharon, realised the potential of the house and completely refurbished it to design a home that is both ultra comfortable and a sophisticated entertaining venue.
The generous open plan space of the kitchen flows easily into the conservatory, and is the busy heart of the home. The well equipped kitchen is a sociable room, where you can sit at the central island and chat with the cook. The conservatory is the perfect place for homework, relaxation and dining, flooded with natural light, even on the dullest of days.
Care was taken in the design to ensure that windows framed attractive garden views. In the conservatory the stunning glass wall pulls you towards the garden. Open the doors in the summer and the garden becomes an extension to the house, as an outside living room.
The house is an easy entertaining venue and after a more formal meal, it is perfect to walk into the lounge for drinks and conversation. Whilst the second sitting room allows children to watch their TV programmes; or is a calm space where you can spend some individual time.
For the energetic, the garage has been transformed into a state of the art gym, complete with a mirror across one wall, and a wall mounted TV. It also doubles as a study. With four bedrooms the house easily accommodates overnight visitors and the master bedroom has attractive views across the garden.
The garden is the jewel in the crown of this lovely property. It has been the setting for numerous parties, when guests can wander through the four different and charming rooms, and sit and chat around the fire pit at the top of the garden. It is a child friendly garden; they enjoy harvesting the fruit trees, playing garden football: and its maze like arrangement is perfect for games of make believe.

Once in a while you come across a truly secret garden and Glenruel
has just that. A pretty quintessential English country garden which
meanders to create a sense of five gardens in one. Benefitting from
a southern aspect, the open patio area is beautifully landscaped with
mature shrubs to the sides offering total privacy. There is a spacious
patio and outdoor dining area house ideal for the BBQ, garden furniture
and entertaining. Herb gardens intersperse with Hostas and Ferns to
fringe gravelled paths and further open dining areas. The gravel path
with inset stepping stones winds down the first garden section past well
stoked borders and an abundance of mature shrubbery. The pathway
continues either side of the first lawned area which is presided over by
a charming arbour seat for two.
Moving through a small gate is a lovely woodland area with an excellent
wood cutting space and a good sized shed, on the opposite side of the
wild flower garden is a delightful summer house, currently carpeted
and housing a fridge, kettle, a cosy little settee and chairs, perfect to
unwind and grab a tea break from gardening. Following the lawned
area around the borders the garden provides plenty of sunlight for fruit
and vegetables, raised beds and a fixed glass greenhouse make this an
excellent area for gardeners to potter.
Vines adorn the lattice fencing breaking up the last couple of sections
and further fruit trees mix with mature shrubs and trees. To the very
end of the garden is a great sized lawned area, open fields beyond and
a fabulous sunken fire pit, complete with a fairy ring of tree stump seats,
this garden provides something for everyone to enjoy and is a truly
fabulous feature of this charming family home.
