Property Summary

Well maintained and beautifully presented, this mid-terrace property is an ideal starter home for a young or growing family, offering comfortable accommodation including a spacious living room/diner, well-appointed bathroom and two bedrooms with ample integral storage.

Already equipped with a programmable gas-fired central heating system, double glazing and low-energy lighting throughout, the property is also close to a selection of good schools, within easy reach of local shops and convenient for bus links to Dudley and Selly Oak.

INTERIOR

PORCH/ RECEPTION HALL:
5’ 10” x 14’ 3”

The front door opens onto a bright porch surrounded by both clear and opaque windows and equipped with a hard-wearing floor, an internal door from here leading through to the equally-welcoming reception hall, decorated a bright white and fitted with a warm wooden floor.

Warmth is provided by a radiator within a decorative timber cabinet, with handy shelving above ideal for post. Carpeted stairs to the left rise to a landing offering access to the two bedrooms and house bathroom on the first floor.

Back on the ground floor, a glass-panelled internal door to the right opens onto the living room/diner, another ahead leading through to the kitchen. Additional doors from the hallway also open onto twin storage cupboards.

LIVING ROOM / DINER:
Living room: 11’ 10” x 14’ 3
Dining room: 7’ 9” x 9’ 9”

Tastefully decorated in a classic design and in neutral colours, the living room enjoys plenty of natural light from casement windows overlooking the front of the property, with light after dark provided by discreet, wall-mounted uplighters and a chrome ceiling array.

The eye is drawn to the decorative mantle around a marble surround and hearth ready for a gas or electric fire if required while the room is equipped with a TV and Ethernet connection and plush, pink-beige carpets which continue through to the dining area.

Here, there is room enough for a family-sized table and chairs with warmth in winter provided by a wall-mounted radiator connected to the property’s programmable, gas-fired central heating system. Also decorated in neutral colours and with a ceiling lighting array to match the living room, the dining area overlooks the rear garden through double-glazed casement windows.

KITCHEN:
9’ 11” x 9’ 3”

With twin, facing, white rolled-laminate worktops either side of the room, the kitchen boasts plenty of storage in timber, partially-glazed base and wall units as well as some open wooden shelving. Splash-back tiles have been fitted above the cooking and preparation spaces, although more tiling with kitchen-themed highlights lines the walls.

There are dedicated spaces for an oven, grill and hob as well as an under-counter fridge/freezer and washing machine. The design also incorporates a white composite one-and-a-half bowl sink and drainer with a window and glass-panelled internal door allowing ample natural light and direct access to the enclosed rear garden.

BEDROOM 1:
18’ 4” x 11’ 10”

Fitted with sand-coloured carpets and including a feature wall decorated with a trefoil-design paper, the master bedroom overlooks the front of the house through casement windows which line one wall.

However, the room’s stand-out feature is the impressive array of mirrored wardrobes, drawer units and cabinets offering substantial storage as well as lockers above the space for a double bed.

The room also benefits from a double-panel wall-mounted radiator for warmth as well as a TV and phone point of its own.

BEDROOM 2:
9’ 10” x 9’ 6”

Also fitted with sand-coloured carpets, the second double bedroom overlooks the rear of the house and also includes integral wardrobes with sliding doors along one wall.

Currently decorated with pastel pink highlights and with a floral-design feature wall, the room also includes its own TV point and a wall-mounted radiator for warmth.

SHOWER ROOM:
8’ 1” x 5’ 6”

Thoroughly modernised and tiled throughout, the shower room includes a corner quadrant cubicle equipped with an electric power shower, a pedestal hand basin in white and a dual-flush WC.

Warmth is provided by a wall-mounted, heated towel rail adjacent to the mirrored medicine cabinet with space enough for additional storage cabinets or shelving if required.

EXTERIOR

The property sits a little back from the road almost at the end of the cul-de-sac and therefore less prone to passing traffic. A small, open lawn separates the house from the pavement, a flagstone path to the left-hand side leading down one step to the front door.

Accessed via the kitchen or from a passageway to the rear of the house, the rear garden includes a small, flagstone patio with steps up leading to a timber shed to the left and a bed for flowers, shrubs or even vegetables to the right. A flagstone path between leads on to another lawn surrounded by timber fencing on two sides and a post-and-wire fence on the other.
