This new 6 bedroomed house is located within the highly regarded Calthorpe Estate in Edgbaston, Birmingham. Work has begun – foundations and basement level are currently being constructed.
This new-build house is located on a prestigious road in a leafy suburb in south Birmingham. At basement level there is a swimming pool and gym along with a changing room and shower area. The basement will include an additional subterranean area linked to the garage above to allow additional cars to be parked at lower level using a platform lift system. A lower terrace accessed from basement level has steps up to garden level. On the ground floor the double height hallway leads to a music room/library, study, formal dining room, and large open plan kitchen with living area and separate utility room. From the kitchen/living area, doors open onto a terrace with covered seating area. On the first floor a glass bridge leads to 5 bedrooms with en-suites and a 6th bedroom/playroom. The master suite and 2 additional bedrooms will have access to a balcony at the rear of the first floor. Another staircase from the landing will lead to the second floor which will include a cinema room and games room along with a WC and additional storage.
Externally, we have drawn up detailed proposals for a fully landscaped front and rear garden. At the rear, the terrace will step down to newly planted beds filled with grasses and semi-mature shrubs and trees. Further along are two seating areas, one with a pergola which overlooks the lower part of the garden, the other smaller seating area will be set within large rocks to provide a quiet space to relax. In the centre of the garden, two Japanese-style pools linked with a waterfall take advantage of the change in level and the lower pool will be surrounded by seating stones overlooking a ‘cricket pitch’ lawn at the far end of the garden. At the front, the driveway will be resurfaced and the garden will be replanted with new beds and a lawn.
