A name like The Owls Nest conjures up visions of a cosy country retreat, full of cottage-style charm and perhaps boasting a thatched roof.
And while this lovely bungalow on Belbroughton Road, Clent, is surrounded by green spaces and countryside, the feel inside is very contemporary.
The current owners have chosen a bold black and white colour scheme, furnishing it with modern monochrome pieces to striking effect.
The theme continues next door in the link detached annexe which would be perfect for the extended family to live in.
The Owls Nest is built of mellow brick and has four bedrooms in the main house and another three in the annexe.
A tarmac driveway has parking for a lot of vehicles. There is a lawned front garden and rural views across farmland to the southeast.
Inside, an open plan sitting/dining room features a part-vaulted ceiling with skylight windows and wide patio doors out to the garden at one end.
A built-in bar area is the perfect place for enjoying a cocktail or two with friends.
In the modern breakfast kitchen there are painted cupboards over a ceramic tiled floor. It has ample space for dining and a co-ordinating dresser makes a classy storage space. Another sliding patio door leads out to the garden.
Appliances in the kitchen include a Bosch dishwasher, Leisure five-burner gas range cooker with extractor over and a fridge and freezer.
There is another vaulted ceiling in the master bedroom which also has built-in wardrobes. Its large en suite also serves as the family bathroom and has a corner bath and shower cubicle. A full width window offers maximum light.
The second bedroom has fitted wardrobes and en suite bathroom with bath and shower over.
There are two further bedrooms, one with contemporary fitted wardrobes.
A guest cloakroom is accessed off the reception hall.
The link detached annexe could be ideal for a young family wanting their own space or elderly parents who want to be close to their children.
It can be reached from inside the main house and has its own separate entrance to the front.
Living space includes an open plan kitchen/sitting/dining room with sliding patio doors to its own garden, which has views over open countryside to the hills beyond.
There are three double bedrooms, the master with en suite shower room and picture window. There is also a family bathroom.
The bungalow’s back garden features a paved terrace and a substantial lawned area. This is currently divided by a fence to create a separate space for the annexe but this could easily be removed if preferred.
A double garage has a utility area.
The Owls Nest is in an elevated position on the edge of the conservation area village of Clent.
