ALBION TERRACE This hide-away row of Victorian terraced properties is a wonderful location to live, sat behind St Paul's Court off the main Birmingham Road. If your looking for that peaceful and tranquil setting with the convenience of local shops and transport, then look no further, we have a gem of a home here. As you drive round to the properties you discover these quaint little cottage style homes set back from their fore-gardens and you immediately feel yourself thrown back in time. So we invite you to come inside with us and discover something quite special.
THE APPROACH You get a welcoming feeling as you walk up a winding, cobbled pathway through the walled fore-garden with its mix of plants and pea gravel. As you approach the post box red front door with feature rose design leaded window, you will be excited to discover what's inside.
LET'S LOOK INSIDE Benefitting from a porch area which a wonderful feature providing a space to kick off your shoes or indeed step out of the rain and hang up your coat before heading into the living space. Great for keeping Jack Frost out too in the colder months.
We then find ourselves in the living room, a cosy, homely space, benefitting from wood laminate flooring and a feature wooden frame bay sash-bay window - perfect for looking out into the front gardens. Here you will find plenty of space, with alcoves each side of the fireplace creating a great space for shelving. A stunning feature fireplace with gas coal effect fire is the central focus of this room. There are period feature cupboard set around this room, which are a lovely touch. This room offers such a comfortable feel. You can enjoy the views with your feet up in front of the fire and glass of red in hand.
The kitchen / diner has recently been re-fitted to offer a Wren, cream Shaker style suite with fitted oven, hob and over hob extractor hood. A period style kitchen with mod-cons and good selection of wall and base units with stylish contrasting work surface and baby- blue splash-back. In keeping with the period you will find tiles laid to the floor here. There is good space for a decent size kitchen table and some useful built-in storage too. The one and a half sink is perfectly located, looking out into the rear garden.
The downstairs bathroom is a good size with modern white suite featuring a rounded-edged sink, bath with shower mixer taps and a separate corner shower cubicle. So if you find yourself unsure whether to have a bath or shower, then you have best of both worlds.
SHALL WE POP UPSTAIRS FOR A LOOK The Master bedroom is located on the front, featuring tall ceilings in period character delivering a sense of space to this room. It has a dado rail and contrasting décor, again in keeping with its history. There is a large window peering over the front garden bringing in plenty of natural light and next to the window is the built in wardrobe. Over the stairs, you will find a handy storage cupboard, ideal for storing your towels and bedding. A great sized number one bedroom.
To the rear of the property is bedroom number two, again a good size. Like the rest of the house, this room benefits from a tall ceiling and large window, making the space feel bright and airy. This bedroom has a lovely view into the rear garden, a nice place to start your day.
Step back into the landing area and you will discover the winding stair case up to the attic room. This is a wonderful space set quietly away from the bustle of the main house. The velux style window bringing light into the room yet backed up by ceiling spot lights. This room has plenty of storage in the eaves, which is always important when storing away your Christmas tree.
LET US LEAD YOU INTO THE GARDEN So we step outside via the back door into the patio area. Here you will find a useful store, which houses the Worcester boiler, which was installed approx. 5 years ago. The patio here is a great place to keep your pots. Into the main south facing garden area, which is mostly decked, where you can sit and be surrounded by bamboo, a sweet smelling rose and interesting trees and plants. Plenty of space for a garden table too.
To the rear you will find a workshop area, it needs a little bit of TLC but it's a great opportunity for a workshop, gym, office or indeed a great kids play room or man-cave. This is the most enjoyable garden space and a wonderful place to unwind.
