A detached residence in need of general modernisation, occupying a corner plot only some 30 metres from Highbury Park, and offering an excellent opportunity to create a more substantial 5 bedroom home, with detailed planning permission for a double storey rear extension.
Moor Green Lane is a highly sought after address in Moseley, located only 3 miles to the south of Birmingham City Centre. Highbury park is within 30 metres of the property; 42 acres of mature parkland set in the grounds of Joseph Chamberlain's former residence, Highbury Hall. Other parks in the vicinity include Cannon Hill Park, Kings Heath Park, Swanhurst Park, Billesley Common and Selly Park. The property also falls within the catchment area for the much sought after King Edward VI Camp Hill Grammar School which is one of the country's leading non-fee paying schools.
258 Moor Green Lane presently requires some modernisation and refurbishment but offers a fine opportunity for an incoming purchaser to create a more substantial family home. There is detailed planning permission in place (Birmingham City Council Decision Document Application Number 2019/01064/pa) for the erection of a two storey rear extension to then provide a 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom (2 en suite) detached family residence, the accommodation to be in accordance with the approved plans which are available from the selling agents.
The existing accommodation is set out over two floors, with double glazing and gas central heating, and extends to some 1,870 sq. Ft (174 sq. M) in total. This briefly comprises;
On the Ground Floor
An entrance vestibule leads through a timber door with a leaded stained glass insert, into the central reception hall. There is a cloakroom off, with further doors radiating off to the three reception rooms.
The sitting room has a triple aspect and enjoys a view over the south facing gardens to the rear. The living room has a bay window to the front and to the rear of this is the dining room, with French doors through to a conservatory, and to the kitchen. There is a range of fitted base and wall mounted units, worktops, stainless steel sink, electric oven/grill, and hob with extractor fan over, as well as plumbing for a washing machine and space for a fridge/freezer.
On the First Floor
From the reception hall a staircase leads up to the first floor landing, where there are 3 bedrooms (2 with good size walk in storage areas), a family bathroom and a separate WC.
The house sits in an elevated position above the main portion of the garden which faces south and is laid mostly to lawn. There is also a patio area and further area of lawn to the left of the house as you look at it from the road.
