Clarence Road, Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield
This is a remarkable link-detached family home in a very sought-after Four Oaks location that includes catchment to the highly regarded Arthur Terry School. This stunning house is set behind a private block paved driveway that has an abundance of space for off road parking for owners and guests. Surrounding the driveway is a short brick wall with shrubbery to maintain privacy. Viewers will note a gate to the left that provides access to the rear garden and an electric roll shutter garage door, although this is mainly for storage as part of the garage has been converted to a home office.
As viewers take the main front door, they enter a lovely wide and long hallway with large tiles laid to the floor and a stylish glass panelled staircase to the first floor. To the far end of the hallway it continues at a right-angle into a further corridor meaning that in total there are doors leading off to the lounge, kitchen, utility, shower room and play room. Starting with the lounge to the right of the entrance, this is a marvellous large reception room with a delightful bay window to the front and dark wood effect laminate flooring laid to foot. There is a really nice feature created in the absence of a fireplace for ornaments.
Arguably the most impressive room in the house is to the left of the hallway, a huge open plan kitchen with reception area. This room measures at thirty-three feet in length and includes a dining area and snug to the very rear. Around the snug are two sets of tri-folding double glazed doors which viewers will absolutely love, aswell an oblong skylight set into the ceiling. The kitchen features a fabulous large island unit in the centre with a wide induction hob set into the surface. There is a powerful extractor fan positioned above the island. Other integrated appliances on offer include three chest-height ovens, coffee machine and dishwasher. To maximise the natural light in the room it has been cleverly designed with two full-height narrow windows near the centre left of the room.
Next to the open plan kitchen is access to the utility room which has work surfaces and spaces for a washing machine and dryer. There is a further door that leads out to the rear garden. After the utility is the surprising and welcome addition of a ground floor shower room which includes a toilet and has basin. Between the utility and shower room is a handy storage cupboard and the final door from the corridor is for a third and final reception room, the play room. This is an excellent space for all the family as it has a staircase leading up to a mezzanine level with storage cupboards on both levels. There are also patio doors leading out to the rear garden and a door leading into a brilliant home office and, subsequently, the garage area.
Moving upstairs, the landing area follows a similar right-angled layout of the ground floor hallway and has doors leading off to three bedrooms, the family bathroom, another storage cupboard aswell as a further glass panelled staircase upto the second floor. The master bedroom is to the left and is an impressive large open space with three windows proving an abundance of natural light. To the rear of the bedroom is a doorway through to a fantastic dressing room with fitted shelving and a further doorway into the en suite shower room. The shower room is very stylish with pebble tiling laid underfoot and an open glass shield shower. There is also a fitted vanity unit with a large wash basin and toilet.
Next from the master bedroom is the family bathroom which is another incredible suite. The main feature here is a marvellous, deep free standing oval bathtub that sits of a raised platform. In addition there is a separate shower cubicle, wash basin and toilet. Completing the first floor are two further double bedrooms - one at the front and one at the rear - that both come with built in slide mirror door wardrobes.
Moving upstairs again to the second floor sees viewers discover a landing area with a deep storage cupboard, skylight set into the vaulted ceiling and doors leading off to two further bedrooms and another family bathroom. The bathroom of this floor comprises of a smart suite with a p-shaped bathtub with shower fitted over, toilet and wash basin. Both second floor bedrooms are generous double bedrooms with skylights to the front and large double glazed windows to the rear that boast countryside views toward Staffordshire.
Finishing outside, the rear garden is equally as stylish as the interior as it has been landscaped onto three levels. The upper tier leads straight from the house and forms a patio area created from large flagstones laid to the ground with wooden posts with transparent panels providing a fence around the patio. Viewers can then either step down to the middle tier which features a glorious decked seating area with barbecue, or down to the lowest level where there is quality synthetic turf laid to allow for easy maintenance whilst creating an excellent play area for children. The whole garden is kept private by a wooden fence perimeter.
