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. It now has two conservation areas containing fine Victorian and Edwardian houses set on attractive tree-lined roads.

Moseley Village has a choice of bars and restaurants, now boasting a Michelin starred restaurant on St Mary's Row and a variety of convenience shopping. All of this 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 some six miles away with Junction 3 of the M5 some eight miles away to the west. 

Schools Local schools are of considerable merit and include Moseley Church of England Primary School, King David Primary School and King Edward's Schools for both boys and girls. Further excellent independent schools can be found in nearby Edgbaston and include West House and Hallfield Preparatory Schools, Edgbaston High School for Girls, the Blue Coat and Priory Schools. 

Sports and Recreation Moseley is fortunate to have a wealth of beautiful parks and public open spaces within easy reach. Nearby Cannon Hill Park, which is virtually opposite the house offers vast areas of open space, a five acre woodland area, tennis courts, lakes, flower beds and a collection of specimen trees which would grace any arboretum.

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 King's Heath Park, Swanhurst Park, Billesley Common and Selly Park. In addition, both Edgbaston and Moseley Golf Clubs are within some two miles of the property and the recently revamped Warwickshire County Cricket Ground is less than a mile away. 

Description 29 Moorcroft Road is an exceedingly well-presented and beautifully appointed detached house. Built by the current owner some years ago in a fine art deco style of architecture which is stunning. The proportions of the rooms have to be seen to be believed; the picture windows onto the gardens provide not only a superb outlook for the house but also allow an enormous amount of natural light into the property.  

On The Ground Floor The Reception Hall is generously proportioned and has large windows which give it a very bright feel. This provides a brilliant first impression of the property and all of the reception rooms emanate from here. The most notable feature of this room is a full length curved window which stretches from ground level to the ceiling of the first floor, this provides a brilliant backdrop for the spiral staircase to rise to the upper accommodation.

The Sitting Room is again stunningly spacious and has a large picture window onto the garden along with a window which overlooks the front of the property. Other defining features include the wooden paneling to the outer parts of the ceiling (which house concealed lighting) and the slate paneling to the wall above the fireplace which has a marble hearth.

Following on from this room, a glazed set of sliding doors open out into The Garden Room which has glass doors to the southerly aspect and an amply sized window to the west. As the name suggests, this room has wonderful garden views and is an ideal place to sit and read and enjoy the tranquility of the grounds.

Then, double doors lead from the sitting room into The Dining Room which also has amazing garden views and is perfect for entertaining. There is partial wooden paneling to the ceiling and a hatch to the Breakfast Kitchen.

This is fully fitted in white with an extensive range of both base and wall mounted units. A large window extends over the garden allowing plenty of natural light and an additional window has a southerly aspect to the side. There is a single drainer sink set into continuous grey work surfaces along with an integrated gas hob and a double oven. There is also space for a dishwasher alongside the breakfast bar and the ceiling has yet more attractive wooden paneling. Leading from this room, there is a door through to the hallway, walk-in pantry and arch through to the Utility Room which has a sink unit and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is then a door through to the store room where there is a gardener's W.C., bin store and two sets of double doors which lead onto the front and to the terrace and garden at the rear.

Also on the ground floor is The Study which is at the front of the house and overlooks the road, if not used in its current capacity it would lend itself easily to snug or TV room.

There is also a Cloakroom which adjoins the sitting room and has a small window to the side, alarm panel board and facilities for outdoor wear. 

The First Floor The curved staircase leads to the first floor landing which is a notable feature of the entire house. It has been used in the past as a music room/ play room as it is a very spacious and adds a great deal of flexibility to the upstairs of the house. This may possibly be adapted to create further bedroom space if required.

The Master Bedroom is a stunning room accessed at the end of the landing, opposite the Case Cupboard. It is impressive in its size and has wonderful facilities which include elegant fitted furniture, a well-designed dressing area with additional fitted wardrobes and a dressing table. There is also glass door onto the balcony which has an excellent outlook over the gardens.

Next to this is an impressive and modern en-suite bathroom with a champagne coloured suite consisting of a bath with shower above, hand washbasin and low level W.C. There is also window onto the front, wall-mounted mirror with light attached, glass shelf and a medicine cupboard.

Bedroom 2 is then a double room with a window onto the garden, a fitted vanity unit with hand washbasin and two sets of fitted wardrobes behind the door.

Similarly, Bedroom 3 is double room which looks onto the rear garden with a fitted headboard, shelving and three sets of fitted double wardrobes.

Again a double room, Bedroom 4 has a fitted desk and shelving along one wall with double wardrobes.

Adjoining this is a W.C. and the next door houses a full length linen cupboard.

The Family Bathroom is accessed through a glass door with a curtain rail behind it and is a generously-sized room. There is a white suite consisting of a bath, walk in shower cubicle, low level W.C., and hand washbasin; all of which is set into a fitted vanity unit. The floor and walls are tiled in a contemporary cream colour and there is a west facing window along the rear wall. 

Outside There is a large double garage which is certainly spacious enough to house two cars and contains the boiler room at the back.

The front garden is terraced with off road parking to the left which is close to the double doors and leads on to the bin store. Paths then lead to both the front door and the garage behind some terraced flower beds.

The rear gardens are not only private and secluded but also quite stunning. They are well-established with a lovely lawned area surrounded by flower borders, specimen shrubs and trees which complement the house perfectly.
