PROPERTY IN BRIEF
Ginger are delighted to offer this simply-stunning, fully refurbished, four bedroom bungalow for sale within this highly sought-after location. This property is one that you do need to view to really appreciate the quality of the work, thoughtful planning and the adaptable space that allows this property to work really well for either a couple, whether retired or working, or a modern day family. Especially as it offers the possibility to expand the accommodation into the roof space, not that you need to as the accommodation is certainly generous just as it is. The location is perfect for the local schools too.
The most important point to start with is that this home has been fully modernised throughout. The property was purchased in 2019 by the current owners, and they have developed this home really nicely, thoughtfully planned out and invested a not-insignificant amount of cost into the build work ensuring a hi-end finish and quality workmanship. There has been no expense spared.
Let's briefly mention the main points as an overview and dig into the detail later into the information.
A key feature for most home-buyers is the daytime spaces, usually with a focus on the kitchen area. This home boasts the most-stunning and opulent bespoke kitchen, with a number of hi-end appliances complimented by that all-important large kitchen island. The kitchen links into the dining section and the separate sitting space tucked around the corner, as well as featuring those all important bi-fold doors leading out to the garden and patio.
The separate living room is a generous size, plenty of space for furniture, and enjoying a pleasant garden view and French patio doors.
The bedrooms all deliver good space, especially the principal bedroom suite, providing the benefits of a separate dressing area and a beautifully styled en-suite shower room. The other three bedrooms are good double rooms, where the fourth bedroom is adaptable, and is at present used as a home office/study.
In addition, there is a separate utility which takes the pressure off the kitchen, and the generous sized main shower room, enjoying the benefits of a walk-in shower with built in seat.
There’s really nothing to do to this property, everything has been done, to include a new heating system with flat faced radiators, a full rewire, floors, plastering and pretty much everything that you would expect and more should you purchase a new build, generally a far higher specification. The owners have carefully planned all the connectivity for both Ethernet and cabling for an after-fit alarm system, should you decide to install at a later date.
Outside, the garden is really tranquil, and a nice size for a bungalow, not too large and certainly not small either. Delivering plenty of private sheltered space, a large patio for outdoor dining furniture, and a lovely lawn for the kids to play or the grand children when they visit.
In addition, as mentioned earlier, there is a single sized garage accessed from the generous in and out driveway, plus a front lawn area which breaks the driveway up aesthetically.
Right then, let's delve into the detail...
This delightful property is set down one of the most desirable roads within the area amongst a number of opulent and individual family homes. The property is perfectly placed to reach of Shirley centre, Solihull town centre, Solihull Train station, excellent local schools, parks and within easy reach of major road, rail and airlinks.
We love the position of this bungalow, it’s grand stance on the street, as well as that all important in and out generous driveway which provides parking for several family cars and gives access into the garage. You will note from the outside, the property has been tastefully rendered, which offers a modern twist to the age of the property as well as making the property even more efficient..
In addition, there is a generous lawn area to the front with a low-level wall to determine the boundary, and breaks up the drive really well.
There is access to the single sized garage via an up and over door, as well as having an outdoor power point.
The storm porch is really handy with step rising up from the driveway and modern tiling, with the space to kick off your muddy shoes after a walk. The modern composite door is complimented by twin frosted double glazed windows to the side to draw in more light yet maintain privacy.
You may know from driving around locally that several of these similar bungalows have gone up into the roof space to provide first floor accommodation, this would be a simple adaptation to do to this home, likely from the fourth bedroom, but still leaving a study space. This opportunity is subject to the correct permissions.
The moment you step through the front door into the hallway you will immediately appreciate the space, the opulent style and hi-end finish to this property. The hallway is a nice size, leaving space for a console table to the side for your flowers and family photos. The hallway is presented with a classically simple and popular floral design wall covering, complimented by tall skirting boards which flow throughout, and a central heating radiator.
Let’s first of all start in the key room to the property, being the open-plan kitchen/dining/ sitting area. This is a great room, the moment you step through from the hallway the first section that jumps out at you is this most-stylish and individual bespoke kitchen, a style that is popular in the modern home, featuring a large central island. The kitchen has been manufactured locally by a prestigious and respected company, who carried out the works to the property. This kitchen offers a good compliment of storage cupboards, deep pan drawers, space for a couple of bar stools to sit around the island, all beautifully complimented by contrasting work-surfaces. In addition, there is a pantry cupboard, which is great for your spices and mixes. Everything is methodically planned out within the design.
There are a number of integrated appliances which include top to bottom individual Bosch fridge and separate freezer, twin Bosch ovens, one being an oven and grill, the second being a microwave and oven complimented by a plate/dish warmer under. There’s also a Bosch four-ring electric hob set in the central island, a Bosch dishwasher which even projects the status of the dishwasher onto the floor, as well as a ceramic Belfast style sink with flexi-hose mixer tap and drawer underneath. And to top it all off, there is an extractor hood at high-level and lighting above the central island.
Moving towards the rear of this space is the dining section which easily accommodates a family size dining table, conveniently located next to the bi-fold doors, which provide that peaceful and secluded view of the south west facing garden.
We also like the sitting area to the side, which is a relaxing space, and not only offers a relaxing daytime space to catch up on the news, or read a book, but works nicely as a chill space to unwind after work, or take a breather after a meal. There is a space for your wall-mounted television, a modern wall-mounted radiator, and power points around, some with USB charging points.
The bi-fold doors are a great feature, and in the warmer months are perfect for taking the inside out, especially when entertaining. In addition, there is a large opening double glazed window to the front elevation providing dual aspect views and plenty of natural light.
A separate utility is always a bonus in a large home. This is just the ticket, having a handy work-surface space with provisions underneath for your washing machine and separate dryer, with plenty of shelving around for your cleaning products. This is also home to the Worcester Bosch boiler, that was installed during the renovation and recently serviced. There’s a double glazed window providing a view to the garden, the room is neutral with light grey floor tiles, and there is a central heating radiator with thermostat control.
The main living room is a lovely big space, neutral in its style with contrasting carpets. The moment you step through from the hallway, your eyes are drawn to the large double glazed window to the rear, providing a wide-angle view of that private south west facing garden. The living room is a perfect space for your multiple sofas and chairs, perfect for when entertaining friends and family, as well as having patio doors leading out to the garden. In addition, there is modern central heating, ceiling lights, and provisions here for your television media centre with Ethernet cables and power both at low-level and mid-height level for your television. Some of the power points also offer USB charging connections.
BEDROOMS & BATHROOM
The principal bedroom is sat at the far end of the hallway. A lovely spacious bedroom providing a generous space for your extra large bed and accompanying side tables, as well as having the benefit of fitted wardrobes with sliding doors. There’s plenty of room to move around here, a double glazed window at the front elevation, and central heating. There’s a good compliment of power points, some with USB connections.
The principal bedroom suite has a separate dressing area, which hosts a number of fitted cupboards with plenty of hanging space, and floor area for free-standing chest of drawers, having LED spotlights, and a central heating radiator with thermostat.
Leading through to the en-suite, again, a modern bathroom suite with opulent tiling to match the main shower room, providing a large double sized shower with mains-fed drench and handheld attachments complimented by a glass shower screen, a white hi-gloss vanity unit with sink and mixer tap, with a vanity mirror having lighting and heating. WC with dual flush, a modern towel radiator, extractor and frosted double glazed window to the rear elevation. A super-stylish and spacious en-suite shower room.
Bedrooms two and three are lovely sizes, really comfortable bedrooms. These rooms provide plenty of space for a double bed, and leaving good wall space for free-standing wardrobes. They are neutrally presented with contrasting carpets and central heating. In addition, there is provisions on the wall for your wall-mounted television, having power, TV aerial and the offering of Ethernet cable for networking.
The fourth bedroom is adaptable, whether as a good sized double bedroom, similar to the other two, being neutrally presented with contrasting carpets and a view into the front driveway. Alternatively, should you work from home, then this room would make for an excellent home office or study, with plenty of room for your large desk and cabinets.
The main shower room is located off the hallway, sitting between the living room and the utility, as well as opposite one of the guest bedrooms. This bathroom is opulent and stylishly presented, enjoying a modern tile around the walls and flooring, for ease and maintenance, and offers a walk-in double sized shower which benefits from a mains-fed attachments, complimented by a glass shower screen, with a modern wall-mounted radiator on the exit of the shower for towels. In addition, there is a wall-mounted white hi-gloss vanity unit, and large wash basin having mixer tap, with a heated mirror over incorporating lighting. Furthermore, a wall-mounted toilet with flushing controls, a frosted double glazed window to the rear elevation, and a handy shelf close by for your toiletries. The shower room also has LED ceiling spotlights and extractor, with space around the room for some additional storage cabinets to tidy away your toiletries. There is a modern wall-mounted white hi-gloss storgae unit in situ.
We have spoken about the large in and out driveway to the front of the property accompanied by a well maintained lawn area and low level wall.
The rear garden is lovely, a good size, as mentioned earlier it is just perfect for this type of property, offering a good space but not overpowering. The garden is well maintained, having a lawn with planting beds around the edges, and providing a large patio area, which is perfect for your outdoor dining furniture, sun loungers, and of course, the obligatory barbecue. There’s also access back in to the living room via the French doors, and those all important bi-fold doors into the kitchen/dining space. There is also access along the side of the property to reach the driveway. The majority of the fences have been replaced as well.
The property benefits from a single sized garage with up and over vehicle access door. Having lighting and power as well as cabling for an EV charging point.
When the vendors laid out their plans for this property, all areas were covered off. There is cabling throughout the loft space, with the trunking into various room where you may wish to run Ethernet facilities and also, there is cabling is in place should you wish to fit your own alarm system later on.
The garage also has the facility for you to add your EV car charging point.
