This wonderful five bedroom home displays a blue plaque as recognition of it's local historical interest having been the birthplace of Sir Austen Chamberlain on 16th October 1863. Additionally planning permission had been obtained to convert the loft space and install an orangery adding approximately 1500 square feet of living space.

This grand property is full of character with a unique 'Italiante' design with red brick construction, large arched windows and an impressive iron archway that forms the entrance to the property. The property is full of charming features including ornate cornicing and ceiling roses, a number of substantial fireplaces and an elegant principle staircase with curved mahogany handrail and decorative balustrading.

Heading inside you are greeted by impressive high ceilings and much of the original character of this home has been well preserved. The grand entrance hallway gives access to three wonderful reception rooms each with impressive fireplaces and features befitting a home of this nature.

Further into the property leading through the inner hall is a fitted kitchen / breakfast room with ceramic tiled flooring and integrated appliances along with a two oven Aga. Adjacent to this room is the utility / laundry room and garden room with French doors that open out to the rear terrace and extensive private gardens.

Upstairs you will find 5 generous bedrooms with en suite facilities servicing the ample master bedroom and 'Jack and Jill' bathroom access off both bedrooms 2 and 3. There is a further family bathroom conveniently accessible for both bedroom 4 and 5.

Outside

The gated driveway is accessed via Harborne Road via electronically controlled gates with marking for multiple cars.

The mature walled gardens to the rear are a real oasis of green with a very private outlook despite the proximity to the centre of the city. This space has been thoughtfully laid out and planted to do justice to the substantial plot and perfectly compliment the outlook onto the rear of this very special home.
