PROPERTY IN BRIEF Set in the much sought after cul-de-sac location of Speedwell Drive, this executive four bedroom detached property boasts spacious living accommodation, well maintained gardens and a large driveway with detached double garage.

Located within close proximity and walkable distance to the centre of Balsall Common village where a wealth of amenities can be found and enjoyed.

Internally, the property is well-maintained and offers a welcoming reception hallway, a generous living room with patio doors to the rear garden, a well-appointed kitchen which opens up to a lovely snug area and has a useful utility room adjoined too. Also downstairs is a separate dining room for more formal occasions and a handy downstairs cloakroom.

A dogleg staircase takes you to the first floor where you are greeted by an impressive galleried landing giving access to four well proportioned bedrooms, all of which having inbuilt storage areas and two of which having en-suites, as well as a separate family bathroom which consists of both a bath and separate shower cubicle.

Outside, the property enjoys a generously sized driveway with a detached double garage and adjacent fore-garden, whilst to the rear is a delightful and private south-east facing garden.

The present owners of 8 Speedwell Drive have lived there for over 20 years which is testament to how much they have enjoyed being at the property. Now the time has come for the next owners to create the same happy memories for hopefully a similar length of time!

APPROACH On the approach to 8 Speedwell Drive you are met with a feeling of space. The cul-de-sac has been cleverly designed to allow each property to stand in its own plot without feeling on top of one another. The cul-de-sac is quiet and has a safe feel for families, whilst the property itself is set back from the roadway behind well maintained fore gardens. There is a large driveway with space for at least four cars, whilst an open porch with brick pillar provides useful shelter over the front door.

LIVING ACCOMMODATION This fantastic family home delivers generous living accommodation. As you walk in through the main front door you are welcomed into a spacious, almost open-plan, reception hallway which creates a wonderful first impression. The hall also houses a handy storage cupboard underneath the stairs and provides access to most of the downstairs rooms and therefore acts as a real central hub of the property, creating a great flow to the layout.

The living room is a wonderfully light and bright room, owing to the extra-width window to the front and glass panelled french doors to the rear, leading straight to a paved patio area, which must be a wonderful feature on those summer days when the doors can be left open. The room itself has character and personality, namely in the form of a gorgeous Victorian style fireplace with gas fire installed making a real focal point of the room.

The breakfast kitchen has a large number of cupboards, both wall mounted and at base level under a contrasting worktop which provides a good surface area for food preparation. There are inbuilt appliances which include a Neff electric oven, Neff four ring gas hob with extractor fan above and a Neff dishwasher. There is also space within the kitchen for a smaller table before it opens up into an open plan snug area.

This snug area is a wonderful extension of the kitchen meaning that guests can be interacted with whilst the hosts are cooking when entertaining or similarly a place to keep an eye on the kids whilst the owner is busy in the kitchen. There is also a utility room directly adjoined to the kitchen with space, power and plumbing for white goods such as a washing machine. There is another matching base unit in here with a worktop and sink for washing those muddy boots away from the kitchen sink after enjoying one of Balsall Common's many rural walking routes.

Whilst there is space for a breakfast table in the kitchen, there is also a separate dining room for a larger table and perfect for more formal dining. There is a handy bay window which just gives that extra little bit of space to the dining room to make it a comfortable area to pull chairs in and out of. Finally downstairs is a cloakroom with WC and sink.

SLEEPING & BATHROOMS A wonderful dogleg staircase leads you to an open and airy galleried landing to the first floor. From here, all bedrooms can be accessed as well as an airing cupboard housing water tank and loft hatch.

The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes providing both hanging and shelving options and a good sized en-suite which comprises a WC, wash hand basin and bath with shower above. The second bedroom is to the rear aspect of the property enjoying views over the surrounding gardens, having space for a large bed as well as a useful storage cupboard with shelving. The third bedroom is another double room and has a storage cupboard and ensuite comprising WC and wash hand basin. Even the final fourth bedroom is a good size and has fitted wardrobe space across the full length of the room.

As well as the two en-suites there is a separate family bathroom comprising of both a bath and separate shower cubicle, WC and pedestal wash hand basin.

OUTDOORS The property is set back from the roadside, enjoying a well maintained green fore garden with shrubbery and paved paths to the front door and porch. Adjacent is a driveway large enough to house at least four cars in front of a detached double garage which has lighting and power with up and over doors.

A metal gate between the house and the garage takes you from the front driveway to the rear garden which is a real suntrap being south east facing. It is very private too with a real feeling of space owing to the fact that beyond the fence boundaries are other good sized gardens meaning that any other properties are set well back to the rear. This peaceful and quiet garden is largely laid to lawn with colourful bedded borders and a paved patio area making it the ideal tranquil space to enjoy a summers day.

DETACHED DOUBLE GARAGE The garage is a true double size and doesn't have the sometimes unpractical internal partition wall which many double garages have, meaning the space in this one is fully usable. There is lighting and power, space in the roof beams for storage, two up-and-over vehicle doors and a pedestrian side door also.
