Thought to date from the mid 1800s, this attractive cream-rendered cottage has been within the same family ownership since the late 1950s, only now coming to the market with the benefit of vacant possession upon completion and providing an all too rare opportunity to acquire a substantial individual property within this popular neighbourhood on the Birmingham side of town, set in very large gardens (approx 0.25 acre) with wonderful potential for new owners to improve and extend if desired, subject of course to the necessary local authority consent.

The gardens to the rear are deceptively large, the eye being drawn at first to a line of mature conifers running across the width of the plot, beyond the level lawned area and patio. However, there is also a further overgrown area of garden behind these conifers, stretching back another 20 yards or so. Certainly the outdoor space could be a landscaper's dream, with almost limitless scope to absolutely transform the gardens, returning them to the splendour of their heyday.

The property has recently been fully rewired in November 2018 and there is a gas-fired central heating system, the boiler last serviced also in 2020. Mains electricity, gas, water and drainage are all connected, whilst virtually all windows are single glazed with wooden frames.

The accommodation within is arranged over two floors, also benefiting from a useful cellar.

To the ground floor there is a reception hall giving way to a sitting/ dining room, in addition to which there is a spacious living room to the rear, extended to provide a wide squared bay which overlooks the gardens.

The kitchen features exposed beams to the ceiling, a range of wall & base cabinets, one-and-a-half bowl sink unit plus attractive exposed brick fireplace which has a gas replica log burning stove (disconnected from the gas supply but possible to recommission).

Just off the kitchen is a utility room where the wall mounted boiler is situated (please note there are no fittings to this room), whilst a door leads through to the guest cloakroom with wc & hand basin.

To the first floor, the master bedroom has dual aspect windows to front and rear, whilst the second double bedroom has a useful cupboard built in over the stairwell. There are two further single bedrooms plus a 12' shower room having cubicle with mixer shower plus wc and pedestal hand basin.

To the right hand side of the property there is a very wide space (approx 21') currently siting a detached double garage of timber construction with parking in front.

A secure gate provides access from here to the rear garden where will be found a useful timber garden shed, timber summerhouse and (within the rear portion of the garden) two aluminium framed greenhouses.

Council tax is payable to Wyre Forest District Council, rated as Band D.
