An impressive, much improved 3 bedroom character home on the ever popular and well located Clarence Road in central Harborne. This stunning property features many thoughtful touches not normally seen with a fabulous riba architect designed double width extension on the ground floor and further 1st floor extension.
This attractive home is approached via a pleasant, landscaped and walled fore-garden. It opens into a lovely front reception room which benefits from a large bay window and plenty of natural light thanks to the through-aspect. There is also a delightful fireplace as the centrepiece of the room.
Leading through the property opens out into an impressive kitchen / diner with bi-fold doors giving floor to ceiling windows and additional glass space above creating a light and airy space which really draws the garden in. The kitchen offers excellent proportions and is well suited to family life and entertaining. The style has been carefully chosen to reflect the character of the property.
The ground floor also gives access to a semi-converted cellar space which is accessed via a cellar hatch and gives a really flexible space that could have a multitude of uses.
Leading up to the first floor you will find two good sized double bedrooms which offer excellent proportions with the rear bedroom forming part of the extension. It is unusual to find this kind of space on the first floor and the rear bedroom is clad in cedar giving a really attractive view back onto the house which differs from the norm. The larger room has access to ensuite facilities with a large shower tray making the most of the space on offer. There is also a recently installed family bathroom on this floor with a shower over bath arrangement.
Continuing the theme the top floor has been cleverly arranged to create a large double bedroom with dormer conversion along with a separate home office space which could easily become a walk-in wardrobe if desired. The attention to detail throughout is admirable with many clever touches not normally seen in these types of conversions.
The gardens on this part of Clarence Road are the largest on the street meaning that there is plenty of green space to enjoy both as a family space and for entertaining in the summer.
To summarise this fabulous home offers an enviable living space throughout with larger than average proportions and a quality of conversion over and above the norm. The added benefit of the large garden gives a wonderful balance to the increased internal living space making this home a great opportunity for those seeking something special.
