The Property
3 DOUBLE BEDROOMS, 3 FLOORS OF SPACE, FOR THIS PRICE?! Yes, you read that right, this 50% shared ownership home gives you all of this, all in an impressive package - where else will you get this much space for £85k!

Seller’s Comments
The owner has enjoyed over 10 years of residency at the house, having bought from new. The owner was drawn to the property by the attraction of being able to live in a property of impressive size, that he would have otherwise not been able to buy, had it not been for the 50% shared ownership scheme.

Most shared ownership properties are small, 2 bedroom terraces or flats, 8 Melbourne Road could not be anymore different. Many visitors don't realise the full size of the house, with the house stretching from the rear garden gate, all the way up to the 2nd floor front facing window! With such space on offer, the property can be ideal for a professional couple or young family. Take it from me, as an experienced estate agent, I have not been as surprised by a property's accommodation as much as I have with this house for a long time! The versatile space includes a large bedroom to the 2nd floor, currently used by the owner as a "man cave" entertainment room, which could easily be another bedroom or games room.

The lovely garden extends to the side of the property, giving more space than you would normally associate with a modern home.

There are local shops, including a convenience store, on nearby Kitsland Road. Morrisons supermarket is located in nearby Castle Bromwich, approx. just over half a mile away, where further shops 7 food outlets can be found.

Birmingham's contemporary city centre can be found approx. 7 miles away & has such features as the renowned Bullring Shopping Centre, Barclaycard Arena & two well supported Championship level professional football clubs.

Shard End enjoys a central location in the Midlands & has good access to the Midlands motorway network, with the M6, M42 & M5 all being within reach, with junction 5 of the M6 being set approx. just under 3 miles away.

Ground Floor
The property is entered via the hall, which has the stairs to the 1st floor & a useful guest WC under the stairs. The lounge is a relaxing room, while set on the opposite side of the house is the kitchen/diner, which has space for a table & a range of fitted wall & base units & pluming for a washing machine.

First floor
The stairs lead up to the 1st floor landing, which then has stairs leading up to the 2nd floor. There are 2 double bedrooms on this floor, with bedroom 2 having wardrobes, as well as the bathroom, which has a suite of WC, wash basin, bath with shower over & cupboard housing the gas central heating boiler.

Second floor
On the 2nd floor is a large landing area, which has natural light entering via a sun tube. This area could potentially be used as a study area, as it really is a large area for a landing! Leading off is the final bedroom, as mentioned previously, this is another fantastic size, which could be used for a multiple uses.

To the front is a driveway providing off road parking & a lawned garden with a gate giving access to the rear garden.

Rear Garden
The garden has a patio & lawn & as previously mentioned extends around the side of the house to the gate to the front.
