Vendor Interview - 684 Kenilworth Road is a superb early Edwardian property, conveniently situated in Balsall Common. Its generous size and location were everything that the present owner, Bill, had been searching for. It has been a much loved family home for over thirty years.

Balsall Common is a large and community minded village. It has a primary school, a comprehensive range of shops and is conveniently close to Coventry, Solihull and Birmingham: with the nearby M6 linking the village to major road networks. The local Berkswell Station is perfect for the commuter, with frequent trains to Birmingham and London Euston. Bill says that the family enjoyed the benefits of town life, but also appreciated the beauty of the surrounding countryside, with its many walks and pretty villages to explore.

Favourite Rooms: The house has a stunning red brick faade and everyone comments on its charming appearance. The interior has the same delightful appeal, and the high ceilings and superb, huge bay windows in the living room and dining room, help create a period elegance, a great sense of space and flood the rooms with natural light. They also frame pretty views to the garden and are superb all year rooms. They are cool in summer, but with the real gas fire glowing in the original fireplaces, are warm and snug in winter.

Another favourite room: The hub of the house is the kitchen, and Bill says its where he happily and comfortably spends ninety percent of the day. Its positive ambience is the ideal place for him to cook, and put his feet up to relax and watch TV. It is a summer pleasure to open the patio doors, for a sunny al fresco breakfast, and watch the birds and squirrels that visit the garden. Friends invariably sit in the kitchen, for good food and conversation; it is a most gregarious area.

The house happily accommodates and enjoys people, and has been the setting for many sociable events, including a barbecue for seventy guests. Bill explains that the walk in pantry is appreciated as an extra place for storing food and wine, and the large laundry room was a great bonus and a practical aid to family life. The boarded loft has also been a brilliant storage area.

The garden: The children and now the grandchildren have enjoyed the safety and freedom of the large private rear garden. It is a great play area, with a vegetable plot for the keen gardener. The fields behind the garden heighten the sensation of country living, whilst trees and hedging form a soft but efficient barrier between the house and road.

What he will miss: Bill says it will be hard to leave the house that has been such a happy family home. He remembers many occasions, sitting on the patio, looking across the garden and feeling very lucky to live in such a delightful place. He takes away many happy memories.
