BALSALL COMMON Balsall Common is a superb village community surrounded by beautiful countryside and offering a wealth of excellent local amenities. A desirable village located 7 miles from Solihull centre. There is a regular bus and train service, which affords easy access to Coventry, Solihull, Leamington Spa and Birmingham City Centre.
Balsall Common offers outstanding schooling for all age groups, and located within easy reach of motorway networks, Birmingham International Airport, International train station and National Exhibition Centre.
SHENSTONE DRIVE A well presented family home in an ideal location within easy walking distance to the village centre and sought after schools. Sitting between Needlers End Lane and Balsall Street means it is handy to the local parks and popular Oakes Farm shop too, great location for families to enjoy and good transport links to local towns, major road and motorway connections. With local bus routes to Coventry and Solihull and sensible walking distance to Berkswell train station this property offers everything you need.
THE HOME... Set at the top of a cul-de -sac off the main Shenstone Drive this family home is peaceful and a safe place especially for your young ones to play outside. One of the benefits of this part of the village is that you can reach the main centre easily or if a walk in the countryside is your thing then you are just a short walk away from green fields, public walks and the local Oakes farm shop, a great place to take the kids to see the sheep, chickens and enjoy the view.
This property has been well thought out with family lifestyle at the top of mind. Open plan kitchen / diner, separate utility room with shower room and the converted garage affording a family room/ study or guest bedroom especially being set close to the W.C and shower. This home affords a multi-level south facing garden having the extra benefit of a conservatory too.
LET'S STEP INSIDE AND SHOW YOU AROUND As you arrive at the property you will notice there is plenty of off-road parking, block paved driveway leading you to the front door.
As you step inside you are greeted by wood effect laminate flooring and a cheerful décor. The hallway leads you into the living room and affords access to the stairs.
The living room or the 'blue room' is a fresh, bright and comfortable place to be. A spacious family room with feature coal effect gas fire and stylish surround. What makes this room feel even bigger and brighter is the bay window stretching across the room with views into the cul-de-sac.
The kitchen is the heart of the home, and what we love about this space is the open plan style with dining space openening out to both the conservatory and through to the garden via the French style patio doors. What a wonderful space! Mom and Dad can be busy preparing meals while the kids can be within close view. This is the day time living space, and if you enjoy entertaining at home then this home is perfect, open out the patio doors, conservatory doors and you have a wonderful party home too.
The kitchen is well fitted with a range of oak effect wall and base units with granite effect work surfaces, NEFF 5 burner gas hob, Bosch extractor, 'Beke' built in oven and grill and space for dishwasher.
Let's not forget the utility, straight off the kitchen where you will find the sink and provision for washing machine and fridge/freezer, taking some pressure off the kitchen. A handy space which has the added benefit of shower room with sink, W.C and store cupboard.
Now then, here's a little gem, the garage has been converted to what is currently being used as an office. However, this space could be used as a family/ games room or better still, why not consider a guest bedroom making this home a four bedroom option. With the shower room, toilet and sink close by, this makes the perfect spare /guest bedroom space. Pop in a fold away bed and the space becomes multi-purpose.
SHALL WE HEAD UPSTAIRS? Once we climb the stairs you will notice the landing space is bright thanks to the large window sat at the top of the stairs letting in the morning sun. The airing cupboard is located at the top of the stairs.
The bathroom is tastefully presented with a white suite with contrasting grey vinyl tile flooring. Benefitting from bath with shower over and glass shower screen, wash basin and low level flushing toilet. Complimented by chrome fitments and heated towel rail.
Master bedroom is set to the front of the home. A good size room ( 3.94m x 2.76m) with large window making this bedroom bright and airy, just what you need to get you going in the morning. Having the extra benefit of sliding built-in wardrobe, fluffy carpet and neutral décor.
Bedroom number two is a good double with a view over the garden. Brightly decorated with feature wall and built in wardrobe.
Jake's room is the blue room, bedroom three and decorated after his favourite football team. What is super-cool is the cabin bed arrangement where Mom and Dad have made the most of this space. Ikea fitted storage making plenty of play space, rest space and good storage for Jake's toys too. A fine example of utilizing space.
OUTSIDE SPACE We all love a south facing garden and this home has just that. A multi-level garden space affording a patio area and space to the side giving access to the front driveway. There is a wonderful opportunity to create an amphitheatre garden space too.
Having the benefit of side conservatory with patio doors out, as well as the patio doors off the dining area makes this garden easy access-able.
