Tenure: FreeholdA handsome Arts & Crafts detached residence, listed Grade 2 for its historical and architectural importance. The property stands within good size mature gardens of around 0.62 acre, in a sought after and popular residential location, well placed for local amenities in both Harborne and Edgbaston, whilst also most conveniently placed for access to Birmingham City Centre.
The property has original parts dating from 1906, and was one of only four houses constructed by the famous architects H.J. Buckland and E. Haywood Farmer. The property offers an attractive rendered façade and is approached over a recently re-laid in and out drive, providing a generous parking area to the front of the house, with further availability of unrestricted parking on Yateley Road itself.
Over the last five years or so the present vendors have much improved and sympathetically refurbished and modernised the house, so as to now provide a most beautifully appointed and well laid out family home, whilst still retaining many character features throughout. Recent improvements made to the property during this time include a new gas central heating system and Megaflo hot water system, refitting of 3 bathrooms, replastering of the whole house, a new solid oak kitchen by Cuisine Sagne with wider opening into the family room, double door opening from the dining room into the hall, new hardwood, double glazed windows and French doors where deemed necessary on the ground floor and a new security alarm system. In addition, the flat garage roof has been renewed with the new Tufdek system, with the company providing 25 year guarantee on installation.
An enclosed front porch leads through to the central reception hall with a splendid parquet flooring, and access off to a cloakroom, the two main reception rooms and the kitchen/family room. Both the drawing and dining rooms enjoy a fine aspect over the rear gardens, whilst the open plan fitted kitchen/family room, provides an ideal practical everyday living space. Further versatility is provided by the replacement of the former outbuildings on the side, now integrated within the existing living accommodation, and presently comprising a self contained flat/guest suite, with a bedroom, a separate shower room, kitchenette, and a utility/laundry area leading to a rear and side porches with wrought iron gates for additional security.
There are 6 bedrooms arranged over the first and second floors, with an en suite shower to the master bedroom, family bathroom, as well as an additional loft room/study (which could also potentially be linked to one of the bedrooms on the second floor).
The accommodation in total extends to about 3831 sq ft (355 sq m).
The well maintained gardens are a particular feature of the property and are situated predominantly to the rear of the house. A recently laid terrace provides a private seating area, and continues on to the extensive central lawn. The house and gardens in all total 0.62 acre.
