A charming and unique Grade II Listed three bedroomed cottage tucked-away within beautiful part-walled gardens.
George Road is a quiet and popular residential road which is ideally located less than 2 miles from central Birmingham. Fiveways railway station is less than half a mile distant and provides easy access to the national rail network via Birmingham New Street Station which is just one stop down the line.
The Bothy is a Tudor-Gothic style Grade II Listed detached house dating we believe from the 1830's. The property features ornate architectural detailing both inside and out and has been tastefully and sympathetically updated in recent years. The accommodation extends in all to some 2,975 sq ft (276 sq m) including garaging and studio space and is ideal for a downsizing couple or a small family looking for a unique and interesting property to live in.
The house is entered either via the delightful semi-circular vestibule or, less formally, directly into the kitchen. From the vestibule, a door opens into a central dining room which leads to the smart breakfast kitchen and utility room to one end, and the large 'L' shaped sitting room to the other. A handsome staircase leads off the dining room to the first floor landing which has a glazed roof running the full length, from which light is cleverly borrowed by the dining room below through an open gallery. There is a cosy study/reading room off the landing with fitted bookshelves.
The principal bedroom suite occupies a prime position with the bedroom itself enjoying a lovely dual aspect view of the gardens through exquisite feature windows. The bedroom is served by a dressing room off which is a well appointed en suite shower room, and a staircase leads up to a further dressing room/study area above.
To the other end of the house is the second bedroom with en suite bathroom. A staircase leads to the third "attic" bedroom with en suite shower room.
The house is approached from George Road up a long gated driveway leading to a parking area and further secure gates into the grounds. The large detached garage has an electric up and over door and a laundry room to the rear with staircase leading up to an excellent studio/office.
The part walled gardens wrap around two sides of the house and provide a variety of spaces for seating, dining and entertaining. To the side of the house a lawn with formal box hedging and gravel pathway running through leads down to a large circular fountain feature, beyond which is a substantial gazebo with tiled roof set atop a raised paved terrace offering a shaded seating area and ideal barbequing spot.
