“The Coppice” is a private gated development of just seven bespoke luxury detached homes in a stunning location, on the site of a former farmhouse, farmyard and barns that had ceased operating as a farm many years ago and was in a fairly dilapidated state. The development is surrounded by fields, on the Chester Road in-between Streetly, Aldridge and Little Aston, to the north of Sutton Coldfield and Birmingham.

SOLD OUT – Sorry, all the new homes on this development were sold off plan.


Each of the homes at The Coppice have been carefully designed for the requirements of today’s modern family and modern day living.

This is an exciting flagship development for Wonderful Homes and a lot of thought has gone into the three individually designed house types; Externally they’ve been designed with a traditional “Arts and Crafts” feel but with a modern twist. Internally they’ve been designed for modern day living, featuring a large open-plan kitchen / diner / family / entertaining area with bi-fold doors to the patio, forming the heart of the home. They will also all feature large master bedroom suites with en-suite shower room and walk in wardrobe, further en-suite bedrooms and a large living room with inglenook and log-burner.

All the homes will be finished to a very high specification as standard including multi-media cabling throughout, see the Specification tab on any of the Homes Available pages of this website for details.


Buy your new home off-plan, early enough in our build programme, and you will enjoy the benefit of being able to customise the features and finishes of your new home, see the Create Your Own Home section of our brochure for more details.


Five of the homes will have five bedrooms, a family bathroom and three ensuites, and two will have four bedrooms, a family bathroom and two en-suites.

Six of the homes will be in a private gated cul-de-sac and Willow House will have its own private gated entrance from the new access road off the Chester road. The gates will be electric and remotely activated.

All of the homes will enjoy generous sized gardens with the largest, Willow House, being approximately ½ an acre. The development enjoys a south westerly orientation and all of the gardens benefit from a degree of southerly aspect. Plots 4, 5 & 6 will benefit in particular from south westerly facing rear gardens. All of the plots feature bi-fold doors from the kitchen / dining area onto the patio to make the most of the southerly aspect.

The development will also benefit from a new coppice that will be planted along the length of the development’s northerly boundary, providing a resident’s private recreation / amenity area of circa an acre of land and once established this will form a natural screen from northern weather.


An important point to note with this development is that we are offering an added value 10 year housing warranty insurance, underwritten by Allianz, that offers the homeowner some significant benefits and peace of mind over other traditional new build structural warranties. Further details of the warranty can be found under the Warranty tab on individual property details pages on this website and in the Peace of Mind section of our brochure. A separate policy overview leaflet and policy wording document is also available.


We anticipate the first plot being completed in late March 2018, with the whole development completed in June/July 2018.

When buying a new home you will want to know that you have a reliable warranty safety net. In line with our aim of providing a market leading specification and unrivaled personal service, each new home at The Coppice will benefit from a market leading 10 year BLPSECUREPLUS warranty, provided by specialist insurer BLP.

The BLPSECUREPLUS warranty provides housing warranty insurance for the structure of your new home, plus it provides cover for premature failure of non-structural component parts within your home. This added value warranty provides you with several significant benefits, and additional peace of mind, over and above the traditional new build structural warranties offered by most other house builders;

  • BLP insurance policies are underwritten by Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty SE – an AA rated global insurer.
  • BLP will have properly assessed the build project from design through to workmanship on site, to help minimise the chance of future defects.
  • Cover for non-structural component parts as well as the structure of your new home.
  • If a defect does arise you won’t have to prove who is to blame, just that there is a defect, and then all you have to do is contact BLP with the details and they will deal with it. This removes the delays and counterclaims that often occur in building disputes.

Please ask for a copy of the BLP Housing Warranty Insurance leaflet & Policy Documentation for full details.

You can find out more about BLP’s Warranty Insurance here:

Each home will also be covered by Wonderful Home’s no quibble warranty which covers defects caused by faulty workmanship or materials. Please see the warranty section of our website for more details.
