A substantial 4 bed detached house in a popular road offering tremendous potential as a superb family home. In need of some general modernisation, the property currently extends in all to some 3,900 sq ft over two storeys. Video viewing available.
Hermitage Road runs between Westfield Road and Hagley Road in an exclusive residential area ideally located for access to the city centre, which lies approximately 3 miles to the east.
18 Hermitage Road is an attractive early 1900's detached house set well back from the road behind a gated driveway and fore-garden. The property has served the present owners well for many years as a family home but would now benefit from some general modernisation. With approx 3,900 sq ft (362 sq m) of space on offer the property is already an excellent size but there is scope for extension if required (subject to consents).
The property is entered via an enclosed entrance porch which in-turn leads through into the spacious reception hall, off which the three reception rooms and dining kitchen radiate. The main sitting room has been extended to the rear and is particularly large with doors opening out to the garden. The dining room has an attractive bow window to the front and can comfortably accommodate a dining table for 10 guests. The living room is a smaller, cosier room with double doors from the hall and a window to the front.
The dining kitchen is an excellent size, having ample fitted units, a breakfast bar and a generously sized dining area with a bow window to the garden. Off the dining area is a lobby leading to the cloakroom WC, the utility room, the garage and the large conservatory to the rear.
On the first floor, a spacious landing gains excellent natural light from the huge window over the stairs. The master suite is particularly impressive, with a bedroom and dressing area spanning some 28ft and having a large en suite bathroom. The three other bedrooms are all good-sized double rooms and all have built-in wardrobes. There is a house bathroom and a separate WC.
Secure off road parking for several cars is provided by the driveway with electronic gates, all set behind a low brick wall and mature conifer hedge. There is a large tandem garage with electric up and over door. To the rear of the house is a lovely mature garden with a substantial brick paved patio and steps leading down to the lawn, flanked by an abundance of trees and shrubs providing excellent privacy. To the far end of the garden is a large timber shed. We have measured the total plot to be in the order of 0.27 acre.
