PROPERTY IN BRIEF

Ginger are delighted to offer this top floor apartment set within this grand period building full of features, charm and a convenient setting. The first thing you’ll notice as you pull up on the residents drive is the impressive Victorian architecture set in the most amazing location; close to Olton train station but also close to neighbouring Solihull and Shirley. Kineton Grange is a contemporary mix of Victorian building with a later added south and west wing extensions kept in the Victorian style. The apartment we offer for sale is set in the older original property. As you enter, the wide set Minton tile floor opens up the communal entrance hall with its lofty ceilings ready to greet you home after a busy day. The decorative banister and spindle stairs with feature bay window landing leads to the rest of the apartments.

Our top floor apartment is newly decorated throughout and finished to an impressively high standard. The lounge gives off New York loft apartment vibes with the feature dormer window whilst retaining a cosy space to unwind. Carrying on through the open hall which benefits from a handy store cupboard. The hall leads you into the well-equipped kitchen where you’re greeted with a view of greenery. The main bedroom offers plenty of space for furniture and also features a large double wardrobe and access to the loft space. The recently refitted bathroom feels like it would suit a high-end hotel with opulent marble-effect flagstone tiles, a feature blue herringbone wall and a large floating vanity all set off with brushed brass hardware.

The property is the ideal purchase for a first time buyer, a couple, investor or just if you need a weekly bolthole. Ready to move straight in, unpack your suitcase, plug in the TV and relax.

WELCOME INSIDE

As you walk in to the main living space you will notice the stunning herringbone oak-laminate floor, feature, marble-effect wall decor, and elevated vantage point from the wide feature dormer window. The living space is perfectly suited for a large sofa, TV console unit and armchair. The space is neutrally presented and has the benefit of a wide radiator underneath the dormer to keep you toasty in colder months. There are many period features including tall skirting boards and architraves across the doorways which are matched throughout the property and keep the period character flowing around the apartment.

Moving on from the living room into the inner hallway, you’ll find a handy storage cupboard which is handy to tuck away vacuum cleaners, airers, mops or any other household essentials. The herringbone floor continues throughout hallway and into the kitchen.

The kitchen is neutrally presented with cream shaker-style units and a granite-effect worktop.

There is ample storage and work space for food preparation but also has a handy void space should you wish to sit for meals. There are provisions for a freestanding tall, fridge freezer and washing machine. The kitchen is also home to the modern Worcester Bosch boiler. The most impressive feature in the kitchen is the large three panelled double glazed window which looks at the mature oak tree. Further afield, the view stretches to lovely green views across Olton. What better way to do the dishes.

The main bedroom is a large double which also offers a feature window with chimney pot and garden views.
