THE PROPERTY

Located on the modern Trafalgar Way development off Shortbutts Lane in Lichfield, this marvellous three bedroom town house will delight all viewers. Modified from the original 2009 build by the current owners, the new composite front door has been brought forward and therefore replaces the storm porch with a longer hallway. This works very nicely as there is a more room for removing coats and shoes and it also means that the previously external cupboard now provides more internal storage.

Moving straight ahead the only doorway from the hallway leads through to the remainder of the ground floor which is completely open as a glorious open plan kitchen with lounge and dining. The kitchen has been replaced by a stylish suite with granite work surfaces that incorporate a moulded sink with drainer. Integrated appliances include a four ring gas hob, self-cleaning electric oven, under counter fridge and matching frost-free freezer and a washing machine.  The lounge with dining is a wide open space that has a beautiful wishbone parquet floor and stunning tri-folding doors leading out to the rear garden. A unique feature in the lounge is how the low level space under the staircase has been converted into a pet home with arched opening which pet owners will love.

Moving up to the first floor viewers will discover a lovely light landing with windows to the side and front and doors leading off to the first two bedrooms and the family bathroom. To the rear is a large double bedroom which would be the master bedroom in many three bedroom homes, but this is in fact Bedroom Two! There is a central window looking over the rear garden and lots of space for a king size bed, wardrobe and drawer unit. Bedroom Three is to the front of the property and although it has to be listed as a generous single bedroom, it has been known to comfortably hold a double bed and wardrobe. Sandwiched between the two bedrooms is the family bathroom which is a lovely clean suite that comprises a bathtub with shower over, wash basin and toilet.

Up on the second floor is an incredible Master Bedroom. This fabulous double bedroom is even larger than bedroom two below and has two sets of roof windows with fitted blinds to provide views towards Lichfield Cathedral and allow an abundance of natural light in. To the front of the bedroom is a short corridor with an airing cupboard and fitted wardrobe on either side to provide a lovely dressing area before a door leading through to a magnificent en suite shower room. The shower room is vast and has been recently refitted to include a double shower cubicle, wash basin and toilet with smart tiling surrounding.    

Finishing outside, the rear garden is fantastic open space that begins with a slabbed patio area finished with light gravel stones that continue round the side of the house where there is a surprisingly wide side space – perfect for a garden shed or barbecue area. The remainder of the garden is a brilliant lawn with a wooden fence to the boundaries for privacy. Beyond the property to the rear is the communal car park where there are two allocated parking spaces for this property plus visiting spaces.

TRANSPORT LINKS

As mentioned above, Victory Close is part of a modern development that leads off Shortbutts Lane, located on the south side of Lichfield and bridging the Birmingham Road (A5127) and the A51 (for Tamworth). This makes it easy for drivers to travel to Lichfield Centre and away from Lichfield toward the A5, M6 Toll and A38. In all this provides journeys to Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall, Derby, Burton-on-Trent and all within an hour. Being one of the smallest cities in the UK, getting across to the opposite side of the city takes minutes, where the A51 continues north for Stafford, Rugeley and Stoke on Trent.

Within a decent walk of this home, around 10-15 minutes is Lichfield City train station which is part of the Cross City Line for Birmingham New Street, Sutton Coldfield, Redditch and Birmingham University.

Perfect for longer distance commuters, the property is located a short drive from Lichfield Trent Valley railway station. There are split level platforms as the station is part of both the West Coast Mainline and Cross City Line. This means there is access to major UK destinations such as London, Birmingham, Liverpool & Manchester to name a few, as well as destinations in the midlands including Sutton Coldfield, Atherstone, Nuneaton, Rugby and Redditch.

The nearest bus stops to this home are located on Upper St John Street (A51) which provides services to the Lichfield City Bus Station (opposite the train station) and Tamworth. The bus station has services to much of the midlands including Birmingham, Walsall, Sutton Coldfield, Stafford and Burton upon Trent.

SCHOOLS & AMENITIES

Being one of the smallest cities in the UK, one of the endearing benefits of living in Lichfield is that the City Centre is within a 15-20 minute walk, where there are plenty of famous and independent stores. The city is steeped in history including the cathedral, churches and the Birthplace of Dr Samuel Johnson, credited for compiling the English dictionary amongst other literary achievements.

Located just off the development is Shortbutts Playing Fields with is a lovely expanse of grass with a designated children’s play area. Walking across the playing field, the new owners will find a Spar convenience store located on Chapel Lane.

Slightly further afield on nearby Darwin Park, a short drive away, is a large Waitrose supermarket, with other famous brand supermarkets located around Lichfield. The property is also a decent journey by walk, cycle or car to Beacon Park which includes a large play area, blossoming gardens, tennis courts and 18-hole pitch and putt golf course.

Parents will be delighted to learn that both catchment schools for this home currently hold Good (2) ratings from Ofsted (as of 17<sup>th</sup> July 2019). According to the Staffordshire Schools website, the catchment secondary school for this home is Friary School which is 1.6 miles away, despite the remaining two secondary schools in Lichfield being closer. The catchment primary school, St Michaels on Cherry Orchard, is much closer at only 0.7 miles away. Although we have researched this information, parents are advised to confirm catchment via the local authority.
