Description

THE PROPERTY

This fabulously presented end terraced home is an ideal purchase for first time buyers, investors and those seeking a long term downsize. The property begins with a gravel frontage that, with a dropped kerb, would provide excellent off-road parking. Beyond the drive is a side passageway leading to the rear garden gate and an ample porch to the front for guests to remove coats and shoes. Following the porch is a secondary front door to lead into a short hallway with the staircase to the first floor and a door to the left for the lounge.

The lounge is a wonderful reception room with a lovely bay window to the front and carpeted flooring. To the left of the room is a chimney breast, that helps enhance the character of the home, which has a modern electric fire mounted at waist height. A lovely set of French doors then open through to the kitchen.

The kitchen stretches the full width of the house and features a wide area to the left of the room for dining. The flooring is of a high-quality, wood-effect laminate and there is a large window to the rear overlooking the garden, as well as a door to exit. The kitchen suite is modern and is fitted across two walls to the right of the room. It features a range of white units with a low-level electric oven and a four-ring electric hob. There is a smaller window position above the stainless stell kitchen sink and drainer and a handy storage cupboard that makes good use of the space under the staircase.

Moving upstairs, the landing area has doors leading off to all both bedrooms and a stylish family bathroom. The suite for the bathroom includes a large P-shaped bathtub with a shower and curved screen fitted above. There is also a wash hand basin, toilet and smart tiling to the splashback areas. Both bedrooms are generous double rooms with the larger of the two being at the front and both featuring a chimney breast. To the front of the master bedroom is a large storage room that was part converted into an en suite shower room. The plumbing is still in place however there are currently no fittings.

Finishing outside, the garden is a great length and includes a combination of lawn, a raised decked seating area positioned next to the house and a large patio area at the bottom of the garden. The patio area is separated from the lawn by a shrubbery that makes it very private and an excellent area to entertain.

TRANSPORT LINKS

Commuters will love the location of this home as it lies a short drive away from many major roads leading towards Birmingham & Sutton Coldfield, as well as the well-known ‘Scott Arms Junction’ of the M6 (J7) which has an immediate link to the M5.

As with much of Birmingham there is a regular local bus service to the City Centre including the Bull Ring and the famous Birmingham New Street Station.

The nearest train stations to the home are Perry Barr and Hamstead for the Cross Country Line and Erdington for the Cross City Line. Both lines lead to Birmingham New Street with other destinations available such as Wolverhampton, Walsall, Lichfield, Sutton Coldfield and Redditch.

SCHOOLS & AMENITIES

The nearest secondary school to this home is The Great Barr School (with sixth form) which lies half a mile away. Within half a mile lie three primary schools and therefore, as with any home, it is recommended that prospective buyers contact the local authority to confirm catchment.

Heading down to Dyas Road on foot (less than five minutes) will bring viewers to a row of shops so you will never be without a loaf of bread or pint of milk!! There is a further row of shops on nearby Aldridge Road. Travelling west along Aldridge Road by car leads to the huge Asda Queslett Supermarket, again a five-minute journey. There are other local independent shops and takeaways on various nearby junctions.

Comments

This property is offered for sale via the Committed Buyer Service which is a flexible and buyer friendly method of purchase. The purchaser will be given 90 working days in which to complete the transaction from the date the Draft Contract is issued by the sellers solicitor.

By giving a buyer time to exchange contracts on the property, normal residential finance can be arranged. The Buyer’s Premium secures the transaction and takes the property off the market. Fees paid to the Merchant may be considered as part of the chargeable consideration for the property and be included in the calculation for stamp duty liability. Further clarification on this must be sought from your legal representative.

The buyer will be required to give the Merchant authority to sign the Reservation Form on their behalf and to confirm acceptance of the Terms and Conditions prior to solicitors being instructed. Copies of the Reservation Form and all Terms and Conditions can be found in the Information Pack which can be downloaded from our website or requested from our Merchant.

If the vendor accepts an offer, the buyer will be required to make payment of a non-refundable Buyer’s Premium of £6,600 including VAT, plus a legal pack charge of £354 including VAT, a total of £6,954. This secures the transaction and takes the property off the market. Any additional fees and charges over and above this will be confirmed within the terms and conditions available on the website.

The Buyer's Premium and legal pack charge are in addition to the final negotiated selling price.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPCs)

An EPC is broadly like the labels provided with domestic appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines. Its purpose is to record how energy efficient a property is as a building. The certificate will provide a rating of the energy efficiency and carbon emissions of a building from A to G, where A is very efficient, and G is inefficient. The data required to allow the calculation of an EPC includes the age and construction of the building, its insulation and heating method. EPCs are produced using standard methods with standard assumptions about energy usage so that the energy efficiency of one building can easily be compared with another building of the same type. The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) requires that all buildings have an EPC when they are marketed for sale or for let, or when houses are newly built. EPCs are valid for 10 years, or until a newer EPC is prepared. During this period the EPC may be made available to buyers or new tenants.
