It would be hard not to fall for this home in Quarry Lane, Northfield, particularly after seeing the kitchen/dining/family room.
The period house has been comprehensively refurbished and extended, and this space has clearly benefitted from a lot of the improvements that have been done.
It is open plan and has a fitted kitchen and family room with a dining area off.
In the crisp, contemporary kitchen area, there is a Belfast sink, extensive fitted units with oak work surfaces and tiled splash backs, large central island, five ring integrated gas hob with oven, grill below and stainless steel cooker hood over, and integrated refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher. Light comes in through the three Velux roof lights as well as the trio of windows. In the dining area there are two doors which open to the garden.
At the front of the house there are two original reception rooms with matching bays. One has an arched alcove with wood burning stove, the other a feature wood fireplace with stove and built-in double cupboards to either side. Other rooms on this floor include an entrance hall with cloakroom toilet and a separate utility.
The bedroom accommodation is on the first floor and approached via two staircases with one only serving the master (or guest) bedroom above the garage.
This first bedroom has a modern en suite shower room with large shower cubicle, wash basin on a vanity unit and a toilet.
The second staircase gives access to the other four bedrooms.
The largest of these rooms has its own en suite with another shower cubicle, wash basin on vanity unit and toilet.
Bedroom three benefits from having a range of fitted wardrobes with sliding doors, two of them mirrored. It and the other two bedrooms are served by the family bathroom. This has been refurbished and, like the en suites, has a contemporary feel. It is fitted with a bath with shower over, a wash basin on a vanity unit and toilet.
A lot of thought has gone into creating another “room” outside on the raised decked terrace. This makes a wonderful place to relax during the summer. Another blocked terrace is big enough to accommodate an outside dining table. There is also an easy to maintain lawn,
The front of the property has plenty of space for parking and access to the garage.
The house is in a convenient location for local amenities and schools, and is also handy for Northfield Railway Station.
