The name The Stables conjures up images of the conversion of a barn or former farm building into a cosy home.

However, with this property in Wellington Road, Edgbaston, the reality is something far grander.

This exceptional modern home is at the end of a long private lane sitting amid other dwellings of similar prestige and character.

Electronic gates open to a sweeping driveway surrounded by mature trees and with parking for multiple vehicles as well as access to the detached garage.

The property follows a style architecturally sympathetic to the Queen Anne period with arched windows and elegant pergola-influenced roofline.

Inside there is an entrance porch and hallway with cloakroom.

There are two generously sized reception rooms, one with a bay to the front and French doors to the garden. The other has a conservatory element to it and marble flooring as well as more French doors to the terrace.

A study provides a useful space for home working.

In the kitchen there are fitted floor and wall mounted units topped by complimentary work surfaces, a granite central unit comprising breakfast bar and five hob unit, brushed steel canopy with extractor fan, built-in grill and oven, fridge freezer and wine store.

A tiled utility room has more units, a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Upstairs are five bedrooms, almost all of them with fitted bedroom furniture. Three have en suite shower rooms.

A family bathroom offers a Jacuzzi bath, shower, toilet and wall mounted basin.

Edgbaston is known for its excellent state and independent schools for all ages and recreational amenities including golf, tennis and even a sailing club at Edgbaston Reservoir. It is also home to Warwickshire County Cricket Ground.
