This is an excellently located and extremely spacious, three bedroom, end of terrace property with two large reception rooms, lofty ceilings and many of the original period features. The property is currently used as a car dealership but would require minimal works to convert it to residential use. The building benefits from a large forecourt into which there is scope for an extension, gas central heating and double glazing. In all, the property boasts an impressive 115 square metres of floor space. The location of the property is exceptional, being only a few metres from Highbury and Kings Heath parks and only approximately 800 metres from Kings Heath centre. Kings Heath benefits from an excellent array of shops, bars, restaurants, educational establishments and recreational facilities and being located in close proximity to both the A441 (Pershore Road) and the A435 (Alcester Road), two of Birmingham's main arterial routes, one can enjoy easy access to Birmingham centre which is only about 4 kilometres distant and the M42, Birmingham International Airport and the NEC. As an added bonus, the planned Kings Heath railway station is to be located at the corner of Valentine Road and the A435 which is only a few minutes walk away.
In greater detail, the property consists of two downstairs reception rooms/offices, a spacious kitchen, a downstairs bathroom, a conservatory and a downstairs toilet. Upstairs there are three bedrooms (one is currently an upstairs kitchen) and further bathroom.
FORECOURT The forecourt is an expansive area running to three sides of this end of terrace property and currently provides the facility to display a large number of motor vehicles. Commanding a raised and prominent corner position at the intersection of Avenue Road and Station Road, this is an excellent location from which to trade or live. In addition there is ample scope to extend the property for either residential or commercial use to the rear of the property. As such, this property will certainly appeal to the property developer.
