Local and intercity rail networks are available from Redditch Alvechurch and Bromsgrove.
Oak House is situated in a lovely rural but not isolated position on the fringes of Hunt End along a leafy country lane with the rear overlooking private woodland. Constructed in 2015 by the current owners this exceptional contemporary oak framed family home was built using the highest quality materials, outstanding internal fixtures and fittings and with energy efficiency a major consideration with triple glazed oak framed windows throughout. Featured on the front page of the July 2018 issue of Build It magazine as the editor's favourite feature, the house has been lauded as a 'masterpiece in oak', subsequently nominated for further awards. The gated property features bright and airy accommodation with full height and vaulted windows to the front façade exemplifying the latest of design architecture. Modern family living is also achieved by a splendid open-plan kitchen/dining, hall and sitting room. The first floor also has an open feel with a spacious study landing and a master suite, complete with dressing area, walk in wardrobe and luxurious ensuite bathroom. Outside the property is approached over a gravelled parking and turning area with detached English Heritage style car port garaging.
