A price tag of more than half-a-million pounds may not sound like a bargain .

But with six bedrooms, three receptions and plenty of character features, buyers will be getting a lot for their money.

Like Harborne or Moseley, Kings Norton enjoys a village feel while still being handy for the city.

It even has an ancient village green, as well as a park and a canal link between Birmingham and the River Severn.

It has had a rail link since the 19th century, the same era that this Victorian detached house was built.

The house, which is in Middleton Hall Road, is an imposing sight, thanks to its three-storey height.

Mature trees and hedgerows give it privacy while a substantial driveway provides parking for a least four cars.

Inside it is traditional in style and has many original features, including high ceilings, dado and picture rails, plate shelves, ceiling roses and cornicing.

In the porch there is an original glazed door to the reception hall with stained glass fan.

The hallway has access to a guest toilet.

There are two reception rooms to the front, one with three windows lined up side by side, letting in plenty of light. It also has a fireplace with coal effect gas fire. The other room has a bay window and an Edwardian wooden surround fireplace with coal-effect gas fire.

At the back the third reception room enjoys a view of the garden .

In the fitted kitchen there are cupboards, drawers and a built-in dresser. There is open access to a breakfast room with tiled floor and a door to the garden.

On the first floor the master bedroom has its own spacious en suite with shower, toilet, bidet and basin.

It also has substantial walk-in wardrobe/dressing room.

There are three more bedrooms on this floor and a house bathroom with bath, shower cubicle and basin. There is a separate toilet.

On the second floor there are two more bedrooms, one of them more than 17ft long.

At the side of the house one finds a car port with sink at the back and also a workshop .

The relatively large rear garden is mainly lawned with large brick terrace and smaller block terrace.
