A former gentleman’s residence in St Bernards Road, Solihull, has been turned into a character home for a greater number of people.

The Briars has been carefully divided into apartments. For sale is a self-contained apartment occupying the complete ground floor.

Set back behind a large tarmac driveway with parking, the apartment is entered via a recessed tiled porch into a reception hall. An imposing drawing room is dominated by a magnificent Victorian oak fireplace.

The kitchen/dining suite has been modernised with granite worktops and integrated appliances. A new breakfast room has matching units and French doors to the garden courtyard.

The apartment has three bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom. Outside the back garden has an outdoor heated swimming pool, and barbecue area.
