The property

Approach & Plot

This beautiful period home located between Sutton Coldfield Town Centre and Sutton Park will greatly impress all viewers. The home is end terraced from a row of terraced houses on Tudor Road although the entrance and off-road parking are directly off Upper Clifton Road. To the right of the property is a wide section of land that provides off-road parking for at least three cars.

The current owners have had plans drawn to create a private garden space on the driveway whilst still maintaining off-parking spaces. The current garden is a private seating area enclosed my mature bushes positioned beside the driveway and in front of the dining room entry. The remaining outside space is a tidy, open garden that wraps around the front and left sides of the house and comprises of shrubs and trees with a pathway through the centre leading to the entrance porch.

Ground Floor

The entrance porch is perfect for guests remove coats and shoes before taking a second door through to the lounge. It is at this point that viewers will truly appreciate they have entered a remarkable home. There is a lovely tall ceiling and the flooring is of a luxury herringbone wooden parquet that continues through to the sitting room to the left and beyond the door to the far right down into the snug. There is a fetching iron fireplace that is naturally lit by a glorious bay window. Many of the windows are the original single-glazed units as, although the property isn’t listed, it does belong to a conservation area.

The wooden staircase with its delightful spindles, banister and carpet running up the centre is positioned to the left of the lounge, near to the porch and also near to the bottom is the doorway through to the sitting room. Like the lounge, this is a generous reception room and has another bay window to the side along with a large original window to the front, making this arguably the brightest room in the house. The chimney breast has trendy bio-ethanol fireplace fitted within.

Moving away from the lounge to the right, past a welcome guest WC with wash basin, is the snug. This is the smallest of the four reception rooms in the house but still a great size for relaxing or to use as a home office. This is the last part of the ground floor that is part of the original building, having begun life as the kitchen. Instead, the kitchen is part of a huge single storey extension to the right of the house that also includes a large dining room.

Although the newest part of the building (along with the porch) the kitchen has a more traditional feel with a farmhouse-style kitchen suite with a large Belfast sink fitted in front of the window. The cream suite is complemented by dark granite work surfaces and the units are fitted in a horseshoe formation toward the front of the room as well as a row to the rear. There are a further two rows of units along the rear and left of the dining room. This means there is an abundance of storage space in both rooms along with integrated appliances such as the dishwasher and fridge freezer. There are also secluded spaces for the washing machine and tumble dryer along with recesses for a microwave and a range oven, with a fitted wide overhead extractor fan.

The dining room has a vast open space for a family dining table to be positioned and has a tiled flooring continued from the kitchen. Again, there is a large window to the front providing natural light and, as mentioned above, an exit door to the gated private garden.

First Floor

Moving upstairs, viewers will discover a lovely wide landing area with window and two doors the double bedrooms at the front. To the rear is a corridor leading to the right to the family bathroom and the third, single bedroom.

The largest bedroom is at the far left of the building and is built on the same footprint as the sitting room below, minus a bay window. This means that is another bright room with two windows and a chimney breast at the rear. There are clever storage solutions fitted to both sides of the chimney breast and a carpeted floor.

The second bedroom is a slightly smaller but still generous double bedroom with fitted drawers and wardrobes as well as another carpeted floor and large window to the front. The third bedroom is currently set out as a dressing room but is easily a good single bedroom. There is built in storage and plenty of space for a single bed and other furniture as well as there being a window to the front.

Finally, the family bathroom is a modern suite matching the guest wc below. It features thick decorative tiling to the floors and walls. The suite comprises of a large bathtub with central taps protruding from the wall and a shower and glass screen fitted over. To the opposite side of the room there is a wash basin, toilet and chrome heated towel radiator. An obscured window provides the natural light.
