Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Beeches at 43 Oxford Road Moseley is an imposing Edwardian detached property that was formerly a private hotel and dining club. It occupies a prominent corner position on Oxford Road/School Road in the heart of Moseley Village.

Despite a great deal of original features remaining such as the elaborate staircase, magnificent carvings and high ceilings, the property has undergone significant refurbishment which has included the up-grading of the electrics, plumbing, insulation and decoration. This combination of old and new makes this a characterful and practical family home.  

SITUATION Moseley is located less than three miles from Birmingham City Centre and has been considered a fashionable area of the city since the turn of the last century. Moseley Village has a choice of bars and restaurants and a variety of convenience shopping which, combined with excellent local schools and leisure facilities, make it one of Birmingham's most sought after suburbs.

As well as its close proximity to the City Centre, Moseley is also ideally located for access to the Midlands motorway network. Junction 6 of the M6 is approximately 6 miles to the north, Junction 3 of the M42 is approximately 6 miles to the south, and Junction 3 of the M5 is approximately 8 miles to the west.

There is also a wealth of beautiful parks and public open spaces within easy reach. Nearby Cannon Hill Park offers vast areas of open space, a 5 acre woodland area, tennis courts, lakes, beautiful flower beds and a wonderful collection of trees. 

SCHOOLS Local schools are of considerable merit and include Moseley Church of England Primary School, King David Primary School, King Edward's Grammar School, King Edward's School for Boys, and King Edward's High School for Girls. Further excellent independent schools can be found in nearby Edgbaston and include West House, Hallfield, Edgbaston High School for Girls, Blue Coat, and The Priory School. 

MEDICAL FACILITIES The recently redeveloped Queen Elizabeth Hospital is approximately 5 miles away and provides state of the art medical facilities for the region. The BMI Edgbaston and Priory Hospitals are within 4 miles, and The Birmingham Children's Hospital and City Hospital are within 5 and 6 miles respectively. 

SHOPPING Nearby Kings Heath has a vibrant High Street that is packed with retailers, coffee shops, pubs & restaurants, as well as supermarkets, banks, chemists, fitness clubs and a Post Office. Kings Heath Village Square hosts a bustling farmers' market on the first Saturday of every month, which gives residents the opportunity to buy fresh and seasonal produce from local suppliers

In addition the City Centre offers some of the best shopping in the country. The famous Bullring Shopping Centre contains over 140 shops including one of the only Selfridges department stores outside of London and the exclusive Mailbox development, which is host to a range of designer outlets including Armani and Harvey Nichols. The recently opened £150m Grand Central Shopping Centre sits directly above the new £600 million redevelopment of the now world class New Street station, including a flagship 250,000 sq. ft. John Lewis store, in addition to over 60 premium retailers and quality restaurants and cafes. The redevelopment enforces Birmingham's retail landscape bringing a mix of unrivalled premium fashion and quality high street brands to the heart of the city. 

TRANSPORT Public transport by road and rail is also most convenient. Major bus routes into and out of the City Centre can be picked up within a short walk of the property on nearby Wake Green Road. Alternatively, the rail network can be joined at Hall Green Station, which also has convenient links to the city centre and beyond. 

SPORTS AND RECREATION Moseley Park and Pool is an 11 acre private park set around a beautiful lake. Membership to the park costs approximately £40 per annum and, for an additional fee, membership to the Chantry Tennis Club and Moseley Park Angling Club is also available.

In addition the nearby Highbury Park comprises some 42 acres of mature parkland set in the grounds of Joseph Chamberlain's former residence, Highbury Hall. Other parks in the vicinity include Kings Heath Park, Swanhurst Park, Billesley Common, and Selly Park. In addition Moseley and Edgbaston Golf Clubs are both situated within 2 miles of the property, and the recently revamped Edgbaston cricket ground is less than a mile away.

In the city centre, the area around Broad Street, linking Five Ways to the City Centre has been developed and improved to provide excellent business and recreational facilities. Within a mile stretch can be found the International Convention Centre, with its superb conference facilities and the world-renowned Symphony Hall. The National Indoor Arena, Birmingham Repertory Theatre, the Hyatt and Marriott Hotels and numerous brasseries, restaurants and coffee shops are all to be found there. 

DESCRIPTION The property is a superb example of Edwardian architecture at its very best that would lend itself well to a large family home or is even large enough to be converted into a bed and breakfast subject to the necessary consents. The property also has an imposing corner position and enjoys a great deal of natural light.

The entrance itself is most impressive with steps leading to a pillared porch with wide double doors. These open into a sizable reception hall that has coved high ceilings and grants access to the ground floor rooms as well as the staircase to both the first floor and the large cellar.

The ground floor is elegant and spacious with a large open plan kitchen and dining area that boasts a recently installed and fully fitted kitchen with a wealth of appliances. On top of this, there are some lovely original features, such as the ceiling which is most unique and gives the room a real sense of grandeur.

There are also two ground floor cloakrooms; one of which is accessed through the impressive sitting room which provides a generous entertaining area and has a bay window overlooking the garden.

The first floor has four bedrooms and the family bathroom which has been wonderfully finished to the same high standards as the rest of the house. Bedrooms 1 and 2 both are both en-suite and all of the bedrooms are amply sized.

On the second floor, there are four further double sized bedrooms, three of which have impressive en-suite bathrooms. There are also two very useful storage rooms on the landing which are ideal for linen and cleaning materials.

Outside, there is excellent parking, and a pleasant lawned garden with terrace which is perfect for al fresco dining.
