A gorgeous home

Amanda Richards - Lichfield & Sutton Property Expert

Sitting proudly on St Chads Road, this stunning Edwardian detached, 4 bedroomed home, is one of the loveliest homes on the property market in Lichfield. This charming home is bright, spacious and has been beautifully renovated and modernised while keeping all its character.

The current owners have lovingly updated the home, everything has been thoughtfully considered to create space for family and friends and the comings and goings of the modern family- all in a stone’s throw of the town centre. You can park your car on the driveway and head into the side entrance of the house where are you greeted straight away with a cosy warmth which fills this entire home. Decorated beautifully with Farrow and Ball hues throughout you can appreciate that this home has been well looked after and has an abundance of interior design touches.

Heading into the spacious entrance hall you are led into the lovely open plan, country style kitchen with a delightful family room, with pretty French patio doors leading out onto the south facing garden. This really is the hub of family life with lots of space for cooking and eating. Off the kitchen is a well sized utility room perfect for muddy boots and all those essential household appliances and there’s still room for a dog if you have one. Open the back door and you find yourself in a stunning professionally landscaped garden. All divided cleverly into sections, a substantial patio for family entertaining, a landscaped area, then through an archway to a further lawn and play area for the children, all surrounded by well-established planting and trees. There’s even an original pig sty ready to turn into a den. And let’s not forget there’s a couple of sheds too.

Back into the house and following on from the family room is a dining room with a real fire and one of the two gorgeous bay windows that face the front of the house- its’s a great space for entertaining. From here you come to the front door entrance with original tiled flooring and a further door leading to the cosy sitting room. Again, a real fire awaits you and the second of those huge bay windows which look out onto the immaculate and beautifully designed front garden with a pretty iron gate. The sitting room has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, making it perfect for the family to gather together and relax or simply watch the tv. Wander out of this room and you are back into the side entrance hall with a perfectly situated cloak room.

Upstairs you discover three double bedrooms two en suite, one single bedroom and a family bathroom. Another flight of stairs takes to a generous attic room which would be ideal as a study – it’s a real gem of extra space.

The home may sound perfect but what about the location? Well, Lichfield is your quintessential English City and St Chads Road is in an ideal location to pop into town and soak up the friendly community feel of the place as well as the array of cafes, pubs and restaurants. You’re also a few minutes away from that magnificent medieval cathedral. Stowe Pool is on your doorstep for a brisk walk as is Beacon Park if you fancy being a little more active. There’s great rail access to Birmingham and London and the M6 Toll is right on your doorstep too.

Climb the staircase to discover the surprising space upstairs. The master-bedroom is vast with lots of room for furniture and has a gorgeous outlook over the back garden - it has a real tranquil atmosphere, and the en suite makes it perfect. The second bedroom is a good double with a delightful original fitted cupboard but the surprise in this room is the en suite.

The third double bedroom has an original cast iron fireplace and an excellent walk in cupboard, the large sash window makes it a light and spacious room at the front of the house. Another bedroom situated at the back of the house is currently being used as a study to take advantage of the view over the gardens but there’s easily enough room for a single bed, wardrobe and an occasional chair.

And there’s even more space – up a further flight of stairs takes you to the attic room. With its skylight window and lots of built in storage making it suitable for a study or playroom for the tots.

As you would expect from a home full of designer touches, the main family bathroom is a real feature. It’s so beautifully designed, its worthy of any boutique hotel.

This is a real wow of a period property but if you want to improve on what we already think is perfection, the owners have recently been granted planning permission for an extension to add additional space to the already spacious kitchen and family room.

Summary

  • Style : Modern family living with all the charm you’d expect from an Edwardian property.
  • Lifestyle : It’s a home with the lot, space, location and a big garden.
  • Three words : Stylish, large, warm
  • Our favourite part Location, Location, Location. 10 minutes stroll into town yet the road itself is peaceful and tranquil – the best of both worlds. It’s a 1930’s home yet shiny and new inside.

Location

An independent vibe with serious history

Foodie Heaven

Lichfield is a stunning little city with a magnificent cathedral, loads of history, jam packed with pubs, a great park and a festival almost on every month, and then there’s the Morris Dancers – it’s that English and we simply love it, it’s got everything here you could possibly need.

It’s always been a bit of a destination for a night out as there loads of top notch restaurants, many independent, be it the Wine House or a few miles out The Boat at Summerhill, you’ll always have a great selection to choose from and many a bar to go to before or afterwards. It really is fast becoming a real foodie town with 2 food festivals a year packing in the crowds. And if you like your entertainment a little more highbrow the music and literature festivals will suit you fine as well as the odd fringe festival throughout the year.

The youngsters are well catered for with a superb park right in the centre of the town, its so convenient you can grab a flat white from one of the many funky coffee shops before you exert your energies on all Beacon Park has to offer: tennis courts, pitch and putt, bowling green, a creative play area for the tots as well as beautiful gardens to admire. There’s a theatre too named after one of Lichfield’s many famous residents, David Garrick and the medieval Guildhall is a superb music venue.

Great schools, lots of culture and lovely people

Around the town there’s also a strong independent vibe of shops, our personal fav’s being Worth Brothers Wine Merchants and the Kitchen Shop full of every gadget you didn’t realise you needed. Of course, there’s a Waitrose in Lichfield and its huge – perfect! If you’re in need of the bigger named chains, the out of town shopping area in Tamworth is just a couple of miles away and it even has the holy grail of shops, John Lewis.

If you feel the need to get active there’s loads of sporting clubs and health clubs to join or simply get out in the fresh air with your pooch on one of many lovely walks right on your doorstop, be it along the canal towpaths or meandering around the beautiful streets you’ve got it all. For the more adventurous the Derbyshire Dales isn’t too far away for some serious hiking in the great outdoors.

There’s a great community spirit here, many residents never move and if they do they usually can’t wait to move back. The schools, both State and Independent are all good and this little City is incredibly well connected. Two train stations, with trains to London Euston in less than 80 minutes and Birmingham in 35 minutes – what could be better? If you’re driving the M6 Toll is close by, just over half an hour to Birmingham, with Leicester and Derby an hour.

Lichfield really is a perfect little City.
