A three bedroomed detached bungalow tucked away at the end of a small cul-de-sac and situated in an excellent south-west facing plot.
Austen Place is a pleasant cul-de-sac situated to the far end of George Road in a most convenient location less than 2 miles from central Birmingham. Fiveways Railway Station is only a few hundred meters away and links directly with Birmingham's main New Street Station for access to the City's shopping and business core as well as the wider national rail network.
10 Austen Place is a 1970's detached bungalow which offers some 1500 sq ft (139 sq m) of accommodation (including garaging). The property is well-maintained and has modern uPVC double glazing however it would benefit from some general internal modernisation throughout. The living space is light and airy, taking advantage of the sunny rear aspect via the large windows.
The property is set well back from Austen Place down a shared driveway which leads to the private driveway and large mature fore-garden. A gentle slope leads down to the property which is entered via a glazed front door into the reception hall which has two useful storage cupboards and a further cupboard housing the hot water cylinder and modern Worcester Bosch gas central heating boiler. The sitting room and dining room are open-plan and form a large 'L' shaped room which enjoys plenty of natural light via uPVC double glazed sliding doors to the front and the rear. A door off the dining room leads into the kitchen which has fitted base and wall units, fitted breakfast bar to one wall, freestanding gas cooker, space for fridge freezer. A door off the kitchen leads into the garden room which links to the garage and is fully glazed on two sides with glazed doors leading on one side to the rear garden and the other side to an enclosed courtyard space.
The bedroom accommodation is situated to the other end of the property and includes a rear facing master bedroom with built in wardrobes and a spacious en suite. Bedrooms two and three are both front facing; bedroom two has two deep built-in cupboards. There is a good-sized house bathroom which serves these two bedrooms.
To the front is a mature fore-garden and tarmac drive providing off road parking for at least three cars. There is a double garage with electric up and over door. To the rear of the property is a substantial south-west facing garden which has a large paved terrace beyond which is a lawn which is bordered by mature shrubs and trees providing a green and pleasant outlook. There is a large timber shed attached to the side of the property and a pre-fabricated outbuilding/workshop. Interested parties should note that there is a railway line which passes adjacent to the property.
