Builders have been busy in Edgbaston, completely reconstructing this fine four-bedroom home.
Finished to a high specification, the use of natural wood throughout gives it a very warm feel.
It is approached off the prestigious Richmond Hill Road, through a set of electric gates and down a substantial block-paved driveway with parking for multiple vehicles. To the sides there are landscaped borders filled with plants.
Solid wood doors with glazed side panels open to the entrance porch with tiled flooring and storage cupboard to the side.
In the reception hall a hand-made staircase leads to galleried landing above. There is storage beneath the stairs and natural wood panelled doors to the reception rooms.
A guest cloak room has Porcelanosa tiling, a toilet and shaped basin on a vanity unit. A built-in double cupboard is suitable for hanging coats.
Double doors lead into the large sitting room to one side of the house. This has a coved ceiling, fire in a marble surround, picture window to the front and patio doors to the back.
Another set of double doors open to the dining room which has windows overlooking the garden.
In the kitchen there is a range of wooden units with granite worktops and splash backs. Appliances (all of which are unused) include Neff dishwasher, Neff halogen hob with stainless steel canopy extractor hood over, Neff electric oven with separate steamer and Neff microwave with storage both above and below, two full-height fridge freezers, matching wall units and breakfast bar with granite top.
A wide archway opens directly through to the family room with a relaxed dining area, wooden flooring and bi-folding wooden shutters to the conservatory.
This sunny space has ceramic flooring, an overhead light/fan fitting, top opening windows, vertical blinds and French doors out to the garden.
Also accessed from the family room are a study and second kitchen that is fitted with light oak units and work surfaces, four-ring hob with extractor hood and wooden canopy over, integrated washing machine and separate dryer, and units incorporating a full-height fridge freezer.
