A handsome double-fronted early Victorian residence of considerable stature situated in a beautiful south-west facing plot of just under half an acre.
The property is located on the south side of Carpenter Road close to its junction with Wellington Road and opposite the junction with Gough Road. Birmingham city centre is some two miles away, easily accessed via the nearby A38 Bristol Road.
Description and Accommodation
37 Carpenter Road dates to approximately 1840 and as such boasts a wealth of late Georgian/early Victorian features which the present owners have worked hard to enhance and preserve.
The property is entered via solid wood double front doors into an enclosed porch with Minton tiled flooring. A part glazed inner door opens into the reception hall where the Minton tiles continue through. A door beneath the stairs leads down to the cellars providing useful additional storage space.
Meanwhile, back at ground level, in addition to the guest cloakroom, the three excellent reception rooms radiate off the hall including a lovely dining room with two large sash windows to the front. The drawing room has a wide full-height bay window to the rear, and the study is an excellent size and has an attractive sash window to the front. The kitchen is accessed via a breakfast room which is large enough to comfortably house a table for six and is made particularly cosy by the presence of a gas fired Aga. The kitchen itself has modern fitted units in contrasting wood and cream coloured fronts and smart black granite work-tops.
On the first floor are five spacious double bedrooms including a fabulous master with dressing room and en suite. The remaining four bedrooms are served by a good sized house bathroom and a further separate WC. There is a fixed wooden staircase off a cupboard which leads up to the loft area.
To the front of the house is a tarmacadam driveway providing off road parking for three cars and leading up to a coach house garage with timber double doors. Above this accessed via an internal staircase is a store room offering scope for conversion to ancillary accommodation (subject to consents). There is a large part-covered side courtyard with various outbuildings providing excellent garden storage space.
The rear garden itself is a true delight, being approx. 70m (230 ft) in length and enjoying a sunny south-westerly aspect. As well as a large lawn with several mature trees, to the far end is a wonderful vegetable garden and compost area.
