Chantry Road, Moseley, Birmingham
A fantastic and rare opportunity to buy this superb refurbishment opportunity in Moseley. In an excellent location backing onto Moseley Park is this seven-bedroom Victorian detached home. With off road parking, three reception rooms and seven bedrooms this property offers versatile and flexible accommodation throughout. Please book an appointment early to avoid disappointment
Accomodation - To the ground floor entering through the storm porch and into the front reception room, the previous owners had divided the staircase off this room allowing for a self-contained apartment, however as this is a refurbishment job that could easily be changed back. There are two further receptions on this room and could be a fourth depending how the kitchen gets remodelled; the kitchen has great potential. There is also a utility room, a shower room and access to the balcony which overlooks garden.
On the lower ground floor (Basement level with the garden), there is yet another reception room that would be excellent as a playroom/snooker room or even a further living room or snug. There is also a bedroom with an ensuite and access to the large garage, workshops and storage. On the first floor there are four double bedroom, shower room and a separate WC. On the second floor there are a further three double bedrooms, a fully fitted bathroom and access to the storage in the eaves.
Outside - To the front of the property there is off road parking with access to the garage and access to what is currently the separate apartment. To the rear of the property is a large landscaped
garden backing onto Moseley Park.
Vendor Interview - Our parents bought the house in 1969 primarily because it was convenient for my fathers work at the hospital in the City, but also because it could comfortably accommodate our large family. They also loved the fact that it backs onto Moseley Park, and from the garden we had direct access, so when we were young we viewed it as the most wonderful extension of our garden. We all played tennis at the club there. Wed spend hours out there with other children from the road, and mum would have to ring a big school bell to get us in for supper. When my mother and father first bought the property they modernised it throughout, and then in 1991, when us children all flew the nest, they made yet more changes. Its a big house, and as there was far too much space for just the two of them they converted the top two floors into a duplex apartment and they lived on the lower two floors. As it stands today its still split in two, although it would be so easy to convert back into one big family home. In fact thats whats so lovely about it, its something of a blank canvass thats crying out to be modernised and for a family to fill it and enjoy it just as we have over the years. In my mind the location couldnt be more ideal, says Jean. The house is within striking distance of the city centre and the transport links are excellent, so travelling further afield is easy. However Moseley itself is a lovely little village and we have this amazing open green space at the back of the house, so really we benefit from the best of both worlds. One thing that we all loved was the real sense of community on Chantry Road, says Jean. We have a newsletter once a month with information about clubs and upcoming events, and at various times during the year everyone tries to get together. For instance, at Christmas there is a Music Hall event at the end of the road and many neighbours participate. Its great fun. On Boxing Day theres usually a big brunch. Its something thats a rarity these days.
