Introduction & Exterior
This immaculately presented period home in Erdington, close to the border with Boldmere, will prove very popular with families seeking a long-term home that is ready to move into. The property is even more attractive to buyers with the knowledge that it is offered with ‘No Upward Chain’.
The house is set back from Somerset Road behind a walled garden that has a synthetic lawn and pathway leading to the front door. To the right of the garden is a shared passageway leading through the terrace towards a secure rear access gate to the garden.
The rear garden begins near the back door with a block-paved passage that widens to a wonderful patio that has a pergola fitted over to provide a delightful seating area. From here there is a large length of synthetic lawn, with gravel border to the right, that leads all the way to the wooden shed at the far end. Beyond here is a segregated part of the garden with gate to access. The entire garden has a tall wooden fence for privacy.
Viewers who love character will be immediately impressed as they enter the hallway with its quarry tiled flooring that stands out from the neutral décor. From the hallway there are doors leading off to the dining room and lounge, as well as a deep under-stairs storage cupboard.
The dining room is at the front of the house and features a beautiful deep bay window and a chimney breast that has a gas fireplace mounted to the front. This wide carpeted room can fit a six-seater dining table with ease.
The second reception room is a large lounge that has a glorious log burner fireplace as its standout feature. Also carpeted, the lounge comfortably holds a sofa suite and has a door leading to the staircase leading to the first floor, and another to the kitchen. A large window to the rear of the lounge overlooks the rear patio and, like the rest of the windows, is double-glazed.
Next beyond the lounge is the modern galley kitchen. The kitchen includes a suite fitted to the left and right walls and incorporates an electric oven and four-ring hob and a stainless-steel sink with drainer. The central heating combi-boiler is mounted above the units to the right. Furthermore, there are clear spaces between the units for a fridge-freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, with plumbing where applicable. An exit door to the rear patio is found at the front-right of the kitchen.
The final room on the ground floor, beyond the kitchen, is the stylish family bathroom suite. This comprises of a long bathtub with electric shower and glass screen fitted over, a tall wall mounted column radiator and a fetching corner unit that includes a toilet with secluded cistern, wash basin and cabinet space. The whole suite is complemented by attractive tiling to the walls.
The landing takes the form of a corridor with doors leading off to all three bedrooms. These bedrooms are all double in size with bedroom one at the front of the house being the largest room in the house. This is owning to the house expanding over the communal passage mentioned above.
The master bedroom has two windows to the front that allow plenty of natural light. There is access to a handy storage space that makes excellent use of the void above the stairwell. All three bedrooms include a blocked off chimney breast that adds to the character. Bedrooms two and three both have a window looking out over the garden.

The property is roughly a ten minute drive to Spaghetti Junction, which is ideal for journeys to central Birmingham via the Aston Expressway as well as routes away to Walsall, Wolverhampton and Coventry. There are also many local routes and shortcuts to places such as Boldmere, Sutton Coldfield, Erdington centre and Aston.
For trains, the entrance to Somerset Road is off Gravelly Lane which is roughly midway between Chester Road and Erdington Railway Stations. Both stations lie on the Cross City Line and run services to Birmingham New Street, University, Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield and Redditch.
Gravelly Lane is superb for bus services, as it has stops providing services to Birmingham & Sutton Coldfield as well as other local suburbs such as Kingstanding and Chelmsley Wood.
SCHOOLS & AMENITIES
The new owners will be delighted to discover a row of shops which include a convenience store, fish and chip shop and hair salon on Gravelly Lane, a short walk from the home.
