THE PROPERTY

This wonderful family home, set back from Birch Avenue on a fabulous plot, will be very popular amongst first time buyers and up-sizers. The property has a driveway in front of the house as well as a shared gravel driveway with next door that separates again at the rear to provide access to a garage / workshop. There is also a narrow lawn to the side of the driveway to enhance the kerb appeal. The house was built in 1927 and evidence of this is found with the lovely curved bay windows.

Viewers will then take the main front door and step into the entrance hallway. Here there is plenty of room to manoeuvre for the family to remove coats and shoes with space to the side to store them. From the hallway there are doors through to the kitchen, lounge and dining room. There is also the staircase leading up to the first floor which has a delightful banister with decorative metal detail and a cupboard underneath that houses the boiler.

To the rear of the house is the impressive lounge mainly due to the extension. The extension gives the feel that the room could be treated as two separate rooms, be it two sitting areas or a dining area to the rear. Features include patio doors out to the rear garden and a chimney breast with gas fire and surround. To the front of the house is the second reception room which has been designated as the dining room for the purpose of these details but, due to the flexibility of the lounge, it could be classed as a second sitting room. There is another chimney breast and, of course, the first of the lovely bay windows to the front.

Finally for the ground floor is the galley kitchen. As mentioned above, the property has been extended across the ground floor to the rear and therefore the kitchen is extremely long. Admittedly the kitchen will want replacing by the new owners however it is perfectly usable and serves the current owners well. There is another door at the rear of the kitchen that leads out to the rear garden.

Moving upstairs, the landing is bright thanks to the side window allowing natural light in. From here there are doors off to all three bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom is located to the front of the house and has a matching bay window to that of the dining room below. The room is a large double bedroom which viewers will love. The second bedroom to the rear is another fabulous double albeit slightly narrower due to the encroachment to allow a decent-sized single bedroom for bedroom three. The family bathroom is a stylish suite with floor to ceiling tiles and a shower above the bath.

Finishing outside, the garden really is an impressive length that begins with a long patio space with irregular shaped paving stones (or crazy paving if you prefer) that is ideal for an outdoor table and chair set. This then continues to the lawn which stretches beyond the garage to the bottom where there is a section of wild foliage toward the rear fence. From the garden there is a doorway into the garage and gated access from the patio to the shared driveway.

TRANSPORT LINKS

A brilliant location for commuting, Birch Avenue is a short distance from the A4601 Avon Road, which leads south-west toward the A5 and M6 Toll and M6 Junction 11. Travelling north is a very short journey to Cannock Town Centre which is in walking range. The property is also a short journey from the Orbital Business Park. Therefore is has another link to the M6 Toll Motorway and A5 aswell as the A460 leading north towards Hednesford & Rugeley.

The nearest Train Station to the property is Cannock which is either a short drive or a decent walk east, near to Cannock Town Centre. Cannock is part of the Chase Line which leads to Birmingham New Street, Walsall and Rugeley Trent Valley among other stations.

The local bus service to Wolverhampton passes along Dartmouth Avenue (the road that connects with Birch Avenue) however there are many more routes available from Cannock Town Centre.

SCHOOLS & AMENITIES

According to the Staffordshire Schools website, the catchment schools are Cannock Chase High School (A Specialist Science School) which is just under a mile away and St Luke’s Primary School, which is much closer at only 0.4 miles. Parents will be delighted to learn that both schools have attained the rating of Good (2) from Ofsted. The well regarded Chase Grammar School is located not far away on St John’s Road which will certainly please any parents thinking of going the independent route. Although we have taken the time to research this information, it is recommended that parents make their own enquiries.

The property is perfectly positioned for shops and services, with a large Asda supermarket a short walk from the home on Avon Road and, as mentioned above, Cannock Town Centre being a further walk. The Orbital Retail Park is a short drive away and has plenty of many familiar named shops including a Sainsburys supermarket. There are also further businesses and eateries located along the A5 and at the junction with Wolverhampton Road.

Heading north on the A460 and beyond Hednesford, the new owners will discover Cannock Chase, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB).
