Full description

Tenure: Freehold

From the moment your foot touches the tumbled cobble of the driveway you realise that this is not your normal semi-detached home. There is literally nothing that hasn't been improved in this house from the 'Karndean' flooring throughout the ground floor to the now-integral garage and extension above.

If space is a worry then worry no more, there is plenty here. With a large lounge, spacious dining room and a conservatory we are positive you will find your own private space to relax. The kitchen has fully fitted units with integrated appliances and a five ring gas hob for you to show off your cooking skills, there is even LED spot lighting to ensure that you can see clearly how your sauce is simmering!The conservatory has a panoramic view over the beautiful southerly facing and private garden, a perfect place to either relax with a book or to sit and dine with your guests. During the warm summer evenings why not eat Al-Fresco in the sunshine on the patio. During the winter months, the stone gas fire in the lounge will keep you warm and snug without a doubt. There is also a formal dining room that offers a warm stylish place to enjoy the family meal.

Upstairs there is a great selection of good sized bedrooms and should accommodate the biggest of families. The modern family bathroom has a gorgeous corner bath to have a good soak after a hard day and there is even a separate shower to aid the morning rush! Don't worry there is also a downstairs W/C which is a relief if the bathroom is occupied!

You may be thinking what else is there to do? The integral garage is not just a great storage space but offers an opportunity to create more living space (subject to planning) and the loft has already been boarded and the roofline plaster boarded.

Norman Avenue is a great location for several reasons. For a start you have a choice of local schools with excellent reviews. Just around the corner is Queens Park and the recently redeveloped and improved Lightwoods Park - the play apparatus is great for letting the kids let off some steam and for the grownups 'The Dog Inn' is a great place for a meal out or a cheeky pint. For the more adventurous, Warley Woods is an exciting place to visit with everything from wildlife activities to golf. If you fancy a full on night out then the exciting clubs and bars of Broad Street is just a 15 minute taxi drive away. In the other direction, it's just a short trip to Harborne High Street and its parade of shops, café's, restaurants and Harborne Leisure Center. Commuting is not a problem as the M5/M6 motorway are just a short drive away for those not working in the area and 'Merry Hill' is easily accessible as a great alternative shopping centre to 'The Bull Ring'.


"Our family moved here in October 2013 and it has been a very happy family home for us all. We moved from a generous sized modern semi-detached property and we couldn't believe the space that this home offered together with a more traditional feel. The entrance porch is big enough to accommodate all five of us when coming in from the rain and taking off our muddy shoes. The house has a southerly aspect with a lovely rear garden which is not overlooked. We planted two fig trees which have done very well and produce fruit late August. The house is light and airy and has been great for day to day family life and for entertaining, inside and out, there have been lots of memorable birthday parties. The driveway offers parking for three cars. The residents in the road are made up of a mixture of retired people and young families. It is very well located relative to local shops and all other amenities (Including numerous schools for all ages; as well as Birmingham city centre (with regular bus services) and immediate vehicular access to J3 of the M5 and, therefore, the wider Midlands and national motorway network. It really is a lovely house, in a great location and we hope that the new owners will be as happy living in the house as we have been."
