A six-bedroom house in Edgbaston for under £300,000? This could be the bargain of the week.

For that size of house in that area and for that kind of price, one might expect there was plenty of work to be done on it to modernise and redecorate.

But this rather fine looking period semi in City Road, Edgbaston, has already undergone a back to bricks refurbishment that has left it with newly plastered walls, glossy new kitchen and fully tiled new bath and shower rooms.

It would be the perfect pad for a large family as it already has six bedrooms with the potential for seven.

And the long garden means there is plenty of room for young ones to run around while a parking area at the front can accommodate everything from a people carrier to a little runabout.

The house is extremely well presented over three floors.

Outside, it still has its decorative period touches with fretwork on the gable porch and smartened up windows. Inside, things have been kept neutral, allowing a new owner to come in and make their mark with their own wallpapers and colours, if they choose.

The accommodation includes an entrance hallway with corbelled archway and stairs.

An open-plan lounge/dining room has a bay to one end and window at the other and a wall-mounted contemporary electric fire.

In the kitchen there are units to the walls and a central island, contrasting work surfaces and tiling to the walls. It already has a Simfer stainless steel range cooker, stainless steel cooker hood and integrated appliances including a fridge freezer . A large window and glazed door offer views of and access out to the garden.

A utility room has more appliance space and there is a ground floor bathroom with bath and shower over, toilet, bidet and basin.

Upstairs on the first floor landing, doors lead off to four bedrooms.

The master has a tiled en suite shower room. There is also another house bathroom with corner bath, basin and toilet.

On the second floor landing, doors lead off to two further bedrooms. A study could possibly be turned into a seventh bedroom or a nursery, subject to the granting of permission for and installation of a ceiling sky light.

There is another shower room with toilet, basin and shower cubicle.

Outside, a block paved frontage provides ample off-road parking. The back garden has a paved patio but is mostly laid to lawn with trees and hedged and fenced boundaries.
