Property Description
A truly exceptional, six bedroom executive detached residence situated on one of Harborne's most premier addresses. This imposing and traditionally designed family home sits on 1/3 of an acre and offers spacious and well appointed accommodation which has retained a host of original period features throughout with plenty of scope for further development subject to the relevant planning permissions.

This eye-catching property is set over two floors and currently provides approximately 2142sqft of internal accommodation. This briefly comprises a traditional and centrally positioned entrance hallway with three generously sized reception rooms, one of which is the breakfast room perfectly complimented alongside the kitchen. There is a equally sizable additional utility room with a downstairs WC. The upstairs includes a wonderful split level landing space stretching across the width of the property and providing access to six bedrooms, including a master with beautifully re-designed en-suite shower room and two additional generous double sized rooms, and three further bedrooms, complimented perfectly with a family bathroom suite. A large integral double garage completes the property.

Outside to the front of the property is a gravel drive with parking for several vehicles and access to the double garage, with a impressive and substantial rear garden providing wonderful outdoor entertaining space and with a variety of mature trees, bushes and plants throughout.

Fitz Roy Avenue is renowned as one of the most prestigious addresses across Harborne. This highly desirable road is perfectly situated to provide convenient access into Harborne Village High Street along with equally ideal access links in-and-out of Birmingham City Centre and the local motorway network nearby. The Queen Elizabeth Medical Complex and Birmingham University are both within approximately a two mile radius of the property along with a wide range of schools for children of all ages in excellent proximity in both the private and state sectors - most notably including Harborne Primary and the Blue Coat schools.
