A truly stunning 3 bedroom semi-detached character home located in the heart of Bournville on the highly desirable Laburnum Road. Immaculately presented throughout this property has been lovingly updated to enhance and protect character.
Approached via a welcoming hallway, with original stained glass door, the property opens out into a large open plan lounge / dining room, central to which, is the Chesney woodburning stove, with slate hearth and limestone surround. With a 8kw output the heat is transferred all the way through the large ground floor open plan living area, making it a cosy space. The property has the unique feature of a full through aspect offering an abundance of light and outlook to both the front of the property, via a large bay window, and to the rear.
This room extends via double glass bifold doors, into a generous kitchen offering additional dining space and a lovely view out onto the extensive, well-tended gardens and courtyard. Designed to a very high specification, the kitchen offers: Real wood cabinets, granite work surfaces and sills, Villeroy and Boch double sink, AEG induction hob, integrated dishwasher with downlights and pyrolytic self-cleaning oven. It also has the benefit of a new porcelain floor with underfloor Warmup thermo remote controlled heating.
To the rear of the kitchen is a beautifully designed and well-equipped downstairs bathroom with neutral suite including a separate whirlpool bath, 1000 square Grohe rainfall shower, marble freestanding basin unit and separate W/C.
On the ground floor is a large utility room which houses the recently fitted Worcester / Bosch Greenstar combi boiler (with Easycontrol remote thermostatic control) washing machine and separate tumble dryer.
Upstairs is a spacious master bedroom with high quality hand fitted Sharps wardrobes (capable of housing 150 pairs of shoes and 2m hanging space) and a large window allowing for plenty of light. This room also benefits from en-suite shower facilities and WC and is finished with Porcelanosa tiles.
The second bedroom is similarly well presented with plenty of room for a double bed and additional storage and benefits from a beautiful large window overlooking the garden.
The third bedroom is currently used as a dressing room with deep bespoke built-in furniture helping to maximise the space on offer. This could quite easily become a single bedroom or home office if required.
The property has the benefit of a large fully boarded loft space with extendable ladders and power, capable of conversion. It is fully double glazed and has Brintons 80:20 carpet throughout.
Outside is a generous courtyard with antique block paving accessed via double oak gates. This leads onto a large three tier decking area with integrated lighting. With one of the widest plots on the road, subject to planning, for which there is already precedent, there is potential for a side extension. The property also has the benefit of a workshop, log store and large shed. Its perimeter is framed securely with tongue and groove fencing and coordinating finials.
The wonderful, extensive south facing garden is a real sun trap and boasts mature borders and well-tended grassed areas; two ponds, one with a fountain and an orchard, perfect for those looking for a private, easy to maintain green space and a great example of the legacy of the Cadbury family's intention to create and protect green space and ensure self-sufficiency.
This home is a real slice of Bournville history being one of the first 100 houses built in 1893 and a true gem in a tranquil oasis.
Located right in the heart of the ever desirable Bournville Village, Laburnum Road enjoys a very peaceful position with minimal traffic and a fantastic mix of period architecture. Positioned just a couple of minutes walk from the boutique independent shops situated on Bournville Green which include a coffee shop, butchers, bakers, hairdressers newsagents and local garden centre.
Laburnum Road is also well positioned to take advantage of the highly regarded local schools including the ever popular Bournville Junior and Infant School and Kings Norton Boys' and Kings Norton Girls' Schools and is within close proximity to Birmingham University and the nearby Queen Elizabeth hospital.
The local train station is around a 15 minute walk away and is a direct link into Birmingham New Street taking approximately 13 minutes. Likewise the local motorway network is easily accessed giving quick and convenient access to both the north and south of the city.
Bournville is well known for its stunning parkland which is a legacy of the village George Cadbury built in the early 1900's. The parkland stretches for miles making this a great area for those seeking green space whilst still being very convenient for the city centre which can also be accessed using the nearby cycle route.
