Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A handsome Arts & Crafts detached residence, listed Grade 2 for its historical and architectural importance. The property stands within good size mature gardens of well over half an acre, in a sought after and popular residential location, well placed for local amenities in both Harborne and Edgbaston, whilst also most conveniently placed for access to Birmingham City Centre. 

Situation Edgbaston is an exclusive suburb of Birmingham, rich in history and being part of one of England's largest urban conservation areas. Much of Edgbaston comes under the control of the renowned Calthorpe Estate which is committed to preserving the quality and original character of the area and the properties within it, making this a most desirable and enjoyable place to live.

Yateley Road is ideally located for access to Birmingham City Centre which lies only around 2.5 miles away and which can be accessed via nearby Broad Street or the A38 Bristol Road. Fiveways Railway Station is approximately only 1.5 miles distant and provides direct access to Birmingham's New Street Station which is one stop (4 minutes) down the line.

Yateley Road is also well placed for the amenities of nearby Harborne which lies less than a mile away. In addition to Waitrose and Marks & Spencer, Harborne benefits from a range of convenience shops and brasseries, restaurants and coffee shops including its own Michelin starred restaurant. More locally, there is a small shopping precinct on nearby Chad Square, where there is a convenience store, restaurant, dry-cleaners, and a hairdressers.

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.

Broad Street and Brindley Place are also within close proximity and have been developed and improved to provide excellent business and recreational facilities. Within a mile stretch can be found the International Convention Centre, the National Indoor Arena and the world-renowned Symphony Hall, home to one of the leading orchestras in Europe and several excellent theatres.

The Edgbaston Priory Tennis and Squash Club is approximately only about two miles away, as is Edgbaston Golf Club. Edgbaston Cricket Ground, the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Winterbourne Botanic Gardens and the Martineau Gardens are also situated close by.

Superb medical facilities in the area include the redeveloped Queen Elizabeth Medical Complex which provides state of the art medical facilities for the region. The Edgbaston and Priory Hospitals are nearby, and there is good access to both The Birmingham Children's Hospital and City Hospital too.

A wide range of schools for children of all ages is available in the vicinity both in the private and state sectors, and include West House School, Hallfield Preparatory School, Blue Coat School, Edgbaston High School for Girls, St George's School, The Priory School and The King Edward's Foundation Schools. 

Description The property is believed to have original parts dating from 1906, and was one of only four houses constructed by the famous architect H.J. Buckland and E. Haywood Farmer. The property offers an attractive rendered façade and is approached over an in and out drive, providing a generous parking area to the front of the house. There is in addition, further on road parking on Yateley Road itself as well, for additional visitors/guests, if so required.

Over the last ten years or so the present vendors have much improved and sympathetically refurbished and modernised the house, so as to now provide a most beautifully appointed and well laid out family home, whilst still retaining many character features throughout. Improvements made to the property during this time include a new gas central heating system and Megaflo hot water system, refitting of 3 bathrooms, complete replastering, and a new solid oak kitchen door opening into the family room by Cuisine Sagne, together with new hardwood, double glazed windows and French doors where deemed necessary on the ground floor. In addition, the flat garage roof has been renewed by Tufdek, and this has the remainder of its 25 year guarantee in place from when it was installed.

An enclosed front porch leads through to the central reception hall with a splendid parquet flooring, and access off to a cloakroom, the two main reception rooms and the kitchen/family room. Both the drawing and dining rooms enjoy a fine aspect over the rear gardens, whilst the open plan fitted kitchen/family room, provides an ideal practical everyday living space. Further versatility is provided by the replacement of the former outbuildings so as to now integrate this space within the existing living accommodation, and presently comprising a self contained flat/guest suite, with bedroom, shower room, kitchenette, and a utility /laundry area leading to a rear porch.

There are 6 bedrooms arranged over the first and second floors, with an en suite shower to the master bedroom, family bathroom, as well as an additional loft room/study (which could also potentially be linked to one of the bedrooms on the second floor), and which is currently accessed via a pull down loft ladder.

The accommodation in total extends to about 3,831 sq. ft. (355 sq. m).

The well maintained gardens are a particular feature of the property and are situated predominantly to the rear of the house. A recently laid terrace provides a private seating area, and continues on to the extensive central lawn. There is also a greenhouse and 2 useful outhouses, whilst the gardens also provide gated pedestrian access onto Westfield Road. The house and gardens in all extends to around 0.62 acre.
