Illey Lane, Halesowen B62


4 Bedrooms

Directions to the property

If using Sat Nav, search B62 0HJ and head for the Black Horse Public House. Upon arrival you will see the 'Oulsnam' For Sale Board at the head of a country lane. Proceed down the country lane for 0.4 miles before reaching the property.


Please note this country lane is unadopted and bumpy in parts and requires extra care if travelling in a low profile car. As you travel down the lane, you will pass a couple of properties and will then cross a small stream just before approaching Lower Illey Farm which is located on the right hand side.


Lower Illey Farm occupies a delightful rural position yet is still conveniently positioned with Birmingham City Centre less than 10 miles away and Halesowen which is readily accessible which offers a range of shopping facilities. The M5 Motorway network is nearby and rail services to Birmingham with onward connections, operate from Hagley and Stourbridge junction.

Lower Illey Farm was built approximately 6 years ago by Border Oak who are a firm that specialise in a high performance building system, SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels). The result is a building system that is said to be extremely strong, energy efficient and cost effective with the system being showcased on Grand Designs in 2002. Prospective buyers are encouraged to refer to the Border Oak website where further information is available about this type of construction, .

The property is located on the Illey Way which runs from Waseley Hills Country Park through to Woodgate Valley Country Park which we believe is declared as an area of natural outstanding beauty. There are various public footpaths which, for the discerning rambler and the person who wishes to enjoy open countryside living offers many walks from the doorstep.
