The property

Occupying a superb corner plot in the prestigious Streetly area, near to Sutton Park, this sensational family home will prove very popular to viewers. Presented beautifully both inside and out, the property begins with a gravel stone driveway that can comfortably fit three cars. There are two lawns to the front and side of the house, the latter being a lovely garden with shrubs and trees to the borders that help make the owners of this home the envy of passers-by. The driveway is positioned in front of a large double garage with two separate up-and-over doors to access and three side windows to provide natural light.

The from the driveway the owners have the option of two doors to enter the home from the front and we shall begin the walk-through at the main entrance which is to the right. This entrance begins with a lovely porch, perfect for guests to remove coats and shoes, before moving through to the main hallway where there are doors off to the kitchen, lounge and ground floor shower room. Already at this point viewers will appreciate that this is a well-presented home, however taking the door to the right into the lounge will really get the pulses racing.

The lounge is a stunning open-plan double reception room with a snug at the far corner and lovely large windows and French doors to provide, not only, plenty of natural light, but a delightful view of the rear garden and patio. Fabulous real-wood flooring is laid underfoot and there is a feature gas fireplace as the centrepiece of the room. The snug area to the side makes an ideal reading room, study or maybe even a play area for families with younger children.

From the lounge there is a second door into the kitchen which has a stylish suite with solid oak frontages and black granite work surfaces. One of the most notable features is the modern extractor unit positioned above the four-ring electric hob along with the integrated chest height double oven in the unites opposite. Other integrated appliances include a fridge and dishwasher and the kitchen also has a walk-in pantry. The kitchen then opens out, with a step down, to the dining room. This extended part of the home is a wide-open space to comfortably hold a large family dining table and other furniture to suit, perhaps an American-style fridge-freezer. There are a delightful set of French doors that lead out to the rear passageway to the garden.

From the dining room there is a door to a sizeable utility room, or second kitchen if you prefer. The utility room has a matching suite to that of the kitchen except with a laminate work surface. There is an under-counter space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and space for a stand-alone fridge freezer. The utility is also the room from where the second front entrance to the house opens to. To the rear of the utility room is a door to a fabulous home office, perfect for those that work from home that enables them to separate themselves away from home life. This room could also be utilised as a fourth bedroom.

Moving upstairs, the landing area is wonderfully lit thanks to a large side window and there are doors leading off to all three bedrooms and the family bathroom. There is also a handy storage cupboard housing the central heating combi-boiler. All three bedrooms in this home are doubles, with the master bedroom being a particularly impressive long bedroom that overlooks the garden. Bedrooms two is also a substantial double that would be considered a master bedroom size in many homes. Bedrooms two and three include fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom is a wonderful suite that features a deep bathtub with centrally positioned taps, a wash basin and toilet. The earlier mentioned shower room on the ground floor is equally as nice with a shower cubicle set into a recess and having wash basin and toilet also.

Finishing outside, the house is perfectly complemented by a private garden that is as well-presented as the interior. It begins with a flagstone patio from the French doors of the lounge that expands juts beyond the snug to create a marvellous seating area with a pathway round to the rear passageway from the dining room. There is also a secure gate from the patio to the front of the property. From the patio there are then steps down to a gorgeous garden surrounded by attractive plants and trees. The whole garden is kept private by a wooden perimeter fence and brick wall.
