This unusual townhouse in Clare Drive, Edgbaston, is one of a unique development of eight built in the 1960s in this road and the adjoining Grenfell Drive.

They were designed by the award-winning local architect John Madin , who was responsible for the attractive layout of much of the Calthorpe Estate, and many significant buildings in Birmingham city centre.

These townhouses share peaceful, picturesque grounds extending to about 1.5 acres off Augustus Road. The one for sale is at the end and has south facing views over the communal grounds.

The ground floor has a hallway with oversized skylight, internal window to the kitchen and exposed brick exposed walls.

The reception rooms are open plan, the lounge and dining areas divided by an open tread staircase illuminated by a large skylight.

In the modern breakfast kitchen there are contemporary wall and base units with light granite effect work surfaces, integrated Bosch dishwasher, integrated microwave, electric oven and grill, gas hob with extractor and a breakfast bar.

A study with shelves and cloakroom with toilet complete the rooms downstairs.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, three of them with fitted bedroom furniture or wardrobes. The master has an en suite shower room and there is a house bathroom.

Outside is a large double garage and parking space for two more vehicles. There is designated communal parking in the private road.
