What Stood Here Prior To Clifton House?

A Memory of Acock's Green

I don't have a memory. All I would like to know, is what stood here before? As the boulevard has some older houses and the Fox Hollies pub would have stood opposite, so would this have been waste ground or hedges or something? Just curious you understand. Do love all these old photographs of how things used to be yesteryear!
Thank you.

A big old redbrick house stood there, surrounded by high trees and bushes, that is my vague memory. If you put Hazelwood road history into Google, there's a lot about it. I spent my childhood in Hazelwood road, but the old house was demolished when I was a child, but there were 3-4 years when it was derelict and we made paths to cut across to Olton Boulevard east.
