Lawnswood Road, Lawnswood, Staffordshire


luxury lifestyle, serene rural outlook and exceptional transport connections white friars is a stunning new development of just four, five bedroom detached, gated luxury homes in the calm and leafy surroundings of desirable Lawnswood, a small hamlet on the outskirts of Stourbridge. The glorious open countryside and rolling green fields will feel like an extended garden in this small and exclusive community of large, detached houses. Quiet and peaceful it may be, but the location is far from isolated with excellent road links to the main centres of Birmingham and Wolverhampton and with Stourbridge, pretty Kinver and Kingswinford just minutes away. It’s time to make that choice and step up to a new life at White Friars.

feeling at home with your surroundings Almost equidistant from the nearby centres of Stourbridge and Kingswinford, White Friars lies on the perimeter of Lawnswood, virtually enclosed by mature trees and with gently undulating fields stretching to the horizon. Day to day essentials are easily taken care of with a small shop, newsagent and Post Office nearby and the aptly named Lawnswood pub offers a good excuse for a traditional meal or a drink with family, friends or neighbours. Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Worcester are all within a 30 minute drive and will amply cater for your shopping and entertainment needs, but with two Tesco Express stores within two miles and a Waitrose in nearby Stourbridge, your grocery shop can be covered close to

home. Stourbridge offers many of the regular high street stores and the ‘Old Quarter’ to the south west of the centre is largely composed of fine Victorian and Edwardian architecture. For the serious shopper, there is no need to travel far – Merry Hill, one of the largest shopping malls in Europe and owned by the successful Westfield Group is less than five miles away. Here, over 230 stores including a large M&S and Debenhams will compete for your custom and, along with a choice of over fifty eateries and a 10-screen Odeon Cinema, will keep you engaged, nourished and entertained.

for leisure, pleasure or business - it’s a friendly community For many, a walk along the canal towpath or through the local woods will be enough, but fitness enthusiasts can limber up at the David Lloyd Gym, just three miles from White Friars, or have hours of family fun at the Barrier Reef Leisure Pool. For fresh air and exercise head for the lovely King George V Park with its many recreational facilities. Visit Kinver Edge & The Rock Houses, a woodland sandstone ridge which offers dramatic views across surrounding counties and miles of heathland walking country, all owned by The National Trust. Practise your swing at two well respected and long standing local clubs, Stourbridge and Enville Golf Clubs. There are two highly regarded schools within two miles, the Belle Vue Primary for younger pupils also offers a nursery and the Summerhill Secondary School has a

specialism in languages. Both schools are active within the local community and both have good ratings in recent Ofsted reports. Transport links from White Friars are truly exceptional, particularly by road. Central Birmingham lies 17 miles to the east and Wolverhampton less than 10 miles or a 15 minute drive to the north. There is good access to the M6, M42, M5 and M54 Motorways and Birmingham Airport is just a 45 minute journey. Wolverhampton Half Penny Business Airport is also conveniently located just five miles away. Stourbridge would be the obvious choice for journeys by rail with two stations within an eight minute drive. From here there are services to Birmingham, the Midlands and the south including London’s Marylebone and Euston.

the smarter way to buy a home Buying new rather than second hand makes sound financial sense, offers peace of mind and is a hasslefree process. There is no need to allocate extra money for repairs or decoration, the building is protected with the NHBC 10-Year Warranty, energy and water costs will be comparatively low and your new home will be chain-free, ready and waiting for your arrival. All our new homes are built to exceptional standards and come with high specification security, up to date technology features, low maintenance materials, pristine bathrooms and kitchens fitted with top quality appliances. Our customer service is fundamentally important at Banner. We provide a detailed programme to guide you through the purchase process

28

that begins on reservation with a comprehensive manual designed to answer any questions you may have. When your new home is ready you’ll be invited to a Demonstration and Inspection Meeting to show you how everything works and to make sure you’re totally happy with the level of finish prior to completion. At the Handover Meeting you’ll receive a Handover Pack, contact

details for our customer services team and a list of emergency numbers for 24-hour support. Once you move in, we will follow up with a Welcome Pack and a call to ensure you’re completely happy or to address any issues that may have arisen. Finally, the Customer Services team will ensure you remain content in your new Banner home for many years after completion.
