A converted loft is the cherry on top of the cake that is this family home in Barnt Green.

Located in Cherry Hill Drive, the large detached property has got an open event on Saturday, December 19, for potential buyers.

Sitting at the end of a private driveway just off Fiery Hill Road, it was built in 1952 by a local builder who designed it to meet his own requirements.

This is why it has a particularly large and tall garage which can be accessed from the rear , making it perfect for use as a workshop or hobby room.

Later improvements have turned it into a three storey house, with the loft space turned from a dusty storage space into a versatile set of rooms.

It has also benefited from extensions on the ground floor and the addition of a conservatory.

There is a porch entrance to front and a reception hall with parquet flooring. This leads into a lounge, snug and breakfast/kitchen that opens into the conservatory.

There is also a cloakroom and a utility room on this level.

On the first floor the master suite features an en suite shower room and a study which could be turned into a dressing room .

There are three more double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

On the top floor, the large suite has a bedroom at one end and a shower room at the other. This is a very flexible set up and might suit a teenager who wants their own “apartment” at the top of the house.

The property is in just under half an acre of land, which means there is plenty of garden to enjoy and for children to play in. A raised terrace is accessed from the back of the house with a beautifully kept lawn beyond.

Barnt Green sits between Birmingham and the North Worcestershire countryside.

It was established with the arrival of the railways during the reign of Queen Victoria, and continues to be a popular spot for people who like the village atmosphere and closeness to green spaces while still being within an easy commute of the city.

Local amenities including shops, schools, destination pubs and sports facilities. Barnt Green also has a long established cricket club and a sailing club.

The re-developed Longbridge area is only a short drive away , with its new flagship Marks & Spencer store.

The open event at the house on December 19 will take place between 11am and 1pm.
