And here’s what £1.5 million or thereabouts can buy you, with a video tour presented by the owner herself, Karen Fortnam.

Karen has spent 15 years seamlessly marrying old and new features to preserve the history of 5 Temple Road, Dorridge, to bring it bang up to date.

What is so special about no 5 Temple Road?

From the moment you enter 5 Temple Road, the detail impresses - from the gothic shaped doors, the stunning stained glass glazing, Minton style flooring and the replica Victorian radiators.

The total of 2,541 sq ft provides on the ground floor a large study to the front of the house, and behind sits a beautiful sitting room bathed in light from the large bay window which looks out onto the courtyard.

A secondary study area, previously used as a children’s playroom, leads into the extension which is sympathetically styled to merge old and new to create a large table and cleverly designed modern kitchen.

Upstairs, the first floor has four bedrooms, including three doubles and a single, along with a charming family bathroom with elegant roll top bath. Each has large windows and high ceilings, indicative of the Victorian period.

On the top floor, the current owners have created a principle suite, painstakingly replicating the Victorian staircase to ensure the flow and integrity of the period is retained.

The en-suite bathroom has most recently been renovated and this top floor suite provides elevated views over the landscaped rear gardens.

The garden has enjoyed a similar level of attention to detail, with several charming seating areas, a fabulous children’s tree house and den, and stepping stones shaping your movement around the garden.

To the front, the drive comfortably provides parking for three to four cars, plus a single car garage as well.

What do the property experts say about the house?

Kathy Griffiths, Head of Premium at selling agents DM & Co. Homes, said: “Properties on this road don’t come up very often, so we are really excited to be able to showcase this very special family home.

“With interiors completed to an exceptional standard and beautiful landscaped gardens, it’s hard not to fall in love with this property.”
