John Shepherd are proud to present Waylands, Balsall Common. A beautifully presented Edwardian property located in the delightful village of Balsall Common, offering an extensive and thoughtfully crafted spacious family home encompassing 3300sq ft. Designed and finished using only the finest of fixtures and fittings this stunning property oozes with style, cleverly combining contemporary living with intricate period detailing.

This detached family home dates back to 1910 and is brimming with handcrafted features, bespoke designs and expansive open plan living. It benefits from five double bedrooms, an exquisite open plan kitchen/dining/family room, two reception rooms, a delightful south facing rear garden, a heated outbuilding and a double garage.

Main Details
Set back from a quiet residential road and nestled behind topiary bushes, this attractive property welcomes guest to a recessed porch and through a beautiful oak door with a reclaimed stain glass window. The striking entrance hallway radiates Edwardian style with porcelain tiling, original period white coving and a dado rail with contrasting wall paint. A door to the left leads to a delightful reception room with a lovely bay window overlooking the front aspect and a traditional fireplace with a cast iron multi-fuel fire. Back into the Hallway and directly ahead of the front door is the cosy reception room with well-maintained original coving, complemented by contemporary downlights and wooden flooring. There is an imposing 12 kilowatt multi-fuel burner with intricate stain glass windows either side of the inglenook style fireplace. Through a feature archway is an additional area which could be used as a formal dining room with doors that can be left open, or closed for that added intimacy which lead through to the remarkable open plan kitchen/diner/family room which forms part of the clever extension. This expansive space streamlines beautifully through to the rest of the house connecting the old with the new with stunning Amtico flooring.

The professionally designed handcrafted kitchen has an array of streamlined cabinets and wall hung cupboards with matching wooden doors and Corian countertops. There are a range of integrated appliances including a two oven electric Aga, a Neff induction hob with a clever downdraft Neff cooker hood, a Neff slide and hide oven, plus a combi/microwave oven. There is also a composite sink with a mixer tap and integrated drainer and space for a large fridge/freezer. The huge standalone island unit provides a focal point to the room with plenty of storage solutions, integrated wine coolers and an inset breakfast bar, ideal for casual dining. Two huge roof lanterns are a striking feature to this superbly designed room which flood the space with natural light. Two sets of bifold doors open out to the delightful patio area with the same Porcelain tiled floor, which really blends the two spaces together. This innovative idea adds an additional space for this already huge room. The family area has space for lounge furniture or a large dining room table, or even better, whatever you desire. The extended part of the house benefits from underfloor heating as well as an air conditioning unit. To the right of the kitchen, a door leads through to a secondary smaller hallway which takes you back to the entrance hallway. Off here you will find a convenient utility with plenty of cupboard space, a cabinet housing the washing machine and a tumble dryer, a Belfast sink and access to the side of the house. There is also a handy downstairs WC as well as access into the double garage.

Back into the Hallway and up a solid oak staircase with a traditional style carpet runner you will reach a small landing. Here you will find the dual aspect family bathroom with matching Utopia sanitary ware, a beautiful freestanding bath tub handcrafted from a single piece of Italian stone, a large walk-in shower and a cast iron fire feature fireplace. Continue up the stairs and you’ll reach the first floor landing where there are three good sized bedrooms. The master bedroom has excellent proportions, tasteful décor and access onto a lovely balcony where you can enjoy the views into the delightful garden. The master also benefits from a stylish en-suite bathroom with Utopia s sanitary ware, tiled flooring, half height wall tiling and a large walk-in shower cubicle. There are two further bedrooms to the front aspect, both with period fireplaces and plenty of space. Return to the landing and continue up the secondary staircase, and there is another smaller bedroom with a large built-in wardrobe with sliding mirrored doors, as well as another bathroom with mosaic style tiling, a large shower cubicle and matching sanitary ware. Another smaller staircase ascends to an additional double bedroom with semi-vaulted ceilings, modern spotlighting, two Velux windows and views out onto the treetops.

Externally, this lovely family property has a delightful rear southerly facing garden, which is a pleasant space for outdoor entertaining family and friends. To the front of the garden is an impressive patio area with tiled flooring with space for outdoor dining furniture, and bordered by flowering beds. A gravelled path runs through the middle of the well-tended lawn leading to an outdoor cabin with electricity and heating, currently used as a gym, but has the potential to be whatever you desire. Flanked by an abundance of trees and shrubbery, this peaceful outdoor space has a natural screen from neighbouring gardens.

To the front aspect there is a gated gravelled driveway with space for several cars, there is vehicle access into the garage and two side access gates to the rear garden.
