Located off Tudor Hill in the heart of Sutton Coldfield lies Station house; a truly unique building brimming with history and full of character. The impressive Grade II listed building has been a pillar of the royal town since the early forties and following an award-winning conversion, the new development consisting of two beautifully restored 21st century homes is now on the market.
Built on a derelict railway line by the Americans in the Second World War, the former Royal Mail goods station was a depot for all correspondence between American forces in Europe and their families. It’s for this reason English Heritage fought to protect the historic building before settling on a partial demolition that would see the iconic building restored into two luxury homes.
Bordering the attractive Sutton Park, the newly restored property (led by renowned development experts Venture Holdings) is contemporary, refreshing and a perfect balance of original characteristics married with modern open-plan design. Positioned on Thomas De Beauchamp Lane, the grand 5,000 square ft. development features striking exposed brickwork, bar shot blasted roof trusses, wooden beams and restored loading bay doors. Illuminated under a canopy of natural light, the exclusive Station house building is ultra-sophisticated and showcases luxurious living at it’s very best.
The two four-bedroom Station house homes have been designed with a stunning 9m high-vaulted ceiling, highlighting the
incredible scale of these unique properties. On the ground floor, Station North boasts an exceptional open plan living and kitchen/dining area, finished with herringbone French Oak flooring that boasts state of the art und
erfoot heating. High gloss contemporary wall and door units that are punctuated with design-led quartz worktops and a large ce
ntral island lit by a trio of industrial pendant lights. The ground floor also features a stylish guest cloakroom, plant room and utility closet, as well as two en-suite bedrooms.
Station South has the added benefit of a ground floor suite flexibly incorporating one of the four bedrooms which could be used as an annexe or home office given its self-contained access from the front driveway.
The stairs in both properties lead to a large lounge mezzanine on the first floor with an impressive bespoke iron balcony overlooking the desirable living space below. Alongside a further guest bedroom sits the striking spacious master bedroom offering pure luxury for residents. An opulent freestanding bath sits artfully under a skylight whilst a lavish 1.8 metre shower room accompanies the master suites.
To the exterior, landscaped gated gardens enhance the fore of the properties making Station house an idyllic setting for outdoor entertaining, with the option to grow a full height hedge for additional privacy.
