THE PROPERTY

This is an extremely unique opportunity to own a large three bedroom family home that comes with a detached two bedroom house as an annexe. The whole property is set on a fabulous large plot which has an electric iron gated entrance. Once through the gates there is an abundance of driveway for owners and guests to park their cars. The annexe was formerly a detached garage and therefore the driveway continues past the main house to this point.

The main entrance to the house begins with a decent sized entrance porch for removing coats and shoes before taking a second door into a wide open hallway. From here there are doors through to a huge drawing room, bedroom one, the family shower room and dining room, aswell as the staircase leading to the first floor.

Taking the first door to the right, viewers will find themselves in a substantial reception room which we have named the drawing room. The room has a vast amount of floor space and has two prominent features; the large bay window to the front and a grand fireplace set into a large recess with windows on either side. From the front window there are stunning countryside views stretching toward Burntwood, Hammerwich and even Brownhills.

Next to the drawing room is the master bedroom which is a large double bedroom that includes the plenty of fitted wardrobe furniture and a large window to provide natural light that looks out to the rear garden. The family shower room requires modernisation but is perfectly usable and has a suite including a shower, large wash basin, toilet and a radiator with towel rail. The final door from the hallway leads into the dining room which is exactly the same size as the master bedroom and therefore has ample room for a large family dining table. This is proven by the photo showing the six-seater dining table with an abundance of space surrounding. The dining room has French doors leading out to the garden and another set of double doors leading into the lounge.

The lounge, albeit smaller than the drawing room, is another generous reception room with another bay window that takes advantage of the glorious views to the front. The ground floor continues with a door from the dining room through to a large breakfast kitchen with plenty of wall and base units. This therefore allows for lots of work surface space and there are windows to the front and side. Integral appliances include a dishwasher, microwave, electric oven and four ring electric hob with extractor fan above. To the rear of the kitchen is a small hallway for the side access of the property. There are also doors off to a welcome guest WC and a storage cupboard that houses the main boiler for the house.

Moving upstairs from the hallway, a short landing - which has a delightful stained double glazed window feature – has doors leading off to bedrooms two and three. Both bedrooms are generous doubles and have large slide mirrored-door wardrobes. To the back of these wardrobes are short entrances into the eaves at the front of the roof, for further storage. Bedroom two has the fabulous addition of a modern en suite bathroom and a built in closet. Bedroom three has a recess with window looking out to the side of the property that incorporates a wash basin.

Making their way outside to the rear, the garden is a wide open space that begins with a patio that stretches along the rear of the main house and around to the annexe. The majority of the garden is a raised lawn with shrubs to the borders and wooden fence to the perimeter. Behind the annexe is also a raised decked seating area which will please all viewers.

As mentioned above, the double garage was converted into an annexe, however you would never know that was the case as the annexe has all the feel of a purpose built house! Viewers will enter into a vast kitchen and dining area that opens into a glorious conservatory. There is a gorgeous log burner fireplace located near to the entrance door which perfectly heats the whole annexe during the winter nights. To the front of this space are double wooden doors providing access to a lounge. The lounge has two large windows to the front to provide natural light and lots of space for a sofa suite and entertainment unit.

Back into the kitchen and the cooking area has a fabulous suite that comprises of wooden and base mounted units with roll top work surfaces. There is a lovely range oven with a six-burner gas hob. Next to the kitchen is a utility room which has a matching suite to that of the kitchen and has plumbing for a dishwasher. Furthermore, from the utility there is a guest wc that doubles up as a laundry room as it has plumbing and space for the washing machine and tumble dryer. Finally on the ground floor, there is a storage room in the dining area near to the doors of the lounge that could be used as a study or home office.

Moving upstairs and immediately to the rear of the building there is an opening to the bathroom which includes a free standing bathtub and toilet. There are glass bricks separating the bathroom from the landing to allow more natural light to the stairwell. From the landing there are doors leading off to two bedrooms. The master bedroom at the front of the house is a marvellous double room with windows that look out to the countryside views to the front and over the garden to the side. The second bedroom is an excellent sized single bedroom where natural light is provided by a roof window and there is a sliding door to access the eaves for storage.
