The property, built around 1890, although the exact date being unknown, is a three storey late Victorian mid terraced residence with a pitched roof. The shallow low maintenance foregarden comprises of a low height front wall with metal gate and concrete slabbed path leading up with three steps to front door. In front of the bay window is a border containing three bushes.





The rear garden can be accessed via the end of the hallway door, dining room door or potential ground floor kitchen room door. Externally pedestrian access is available via a gate into the end of the garden off the pavement of Edgbaston Road at the rear.





Subject to planning permission for a drop curb and alterations to the rear boundary fencing and gate, there could be potential to create off road parking as is demonstrated by neighbouring properties. The garden initially comprises of blue engineering brick path running up the side of rear wing projection and forming a small patio across the rear elevation. The rest of the garden is then raised from this area comprising of a concrete slabbed path and the rest of the garden containing a range of bushes. The rear garden is bounded by wooden fencing to the left hand side and rear and concrete fencing to the right. There is a dilapidated outbuilding that is now open plan with a metal corrugated roof and can used for basic storage.





The property is now in need of full modernisation that is likely to include double glazing, replastering, installation of a gas central heating system, minor layout alternations, fitting of a new kitchen to the ground floor and a new bathroom as well as re-carpeting. Improvements have already been made by the current owner including re-wiring in 2016, replacement of the internal lead water pipe and the fitting of a new electric immersion heater and tanks as well as the cold water tank around 2017.





Ideal for investment or family purchasers. Excellent potential. Early viewing is advised.
