Grandeur and gravitas are two words that have been used to describe this period house on Monument Road in Edgbaston.

But location, refurbished and space are three other words that might grab the attention of potential buyers.

With five bedrooms and a long back garden, it certainly has plenty of the latter.

The refurbishment has been taken care of by the vendors and leaves a house that is mostly a blank canvas for a new owner, with smart modern bathrooms and kitchen.

As for location, Monument Road is just off the Hagley Road as it starts to head out of the city.

“It is a gorgeous property, enthuses Andrew Bryant, sales and lettings manager for CPBigwood. “There is a special grandeur and gravitas to it.”

It certainly makes a good first impression with its white painted facade and contrasting black steps leading up to a front door and fanlight framed by decorative brickwork.

There is also ample off road parking for a number vehicles.

Inside, the reception hall still has period features in the form of cornicing to the ceiling and a ceiling rose, which can also found in the sitting room and dining room.

There are original style sash windows in both reception rooms as well as fireplaces with decorative tiling.

In the kitchen there are French doors opening to the back garden as well as a sash window.

This room has been fitted with a range of wall, base and drawer units with roll edge work surfaces over, tiled walls and tilled flooring.

There is space for a fridge and freezer, plus a recess in the chimney breast housing a range-style gas cooker . A connecting door leads through to the utility room.

There is also a guest cloakroom on the ground floor.

On the first floor, there are five bedrooms or four bedrooms and a study, all with sash windows.

Bedrooms one and two have en suite shower rooms and there is a family bathroom with a contemporary suite with bath and shower above.

The generous back garden is mostly laid to lawn with planted beds and mature trees . It has patio areas close to the house and towards the end, meaning there are plenty of opportunities for catching the sun.
