This canalside cottage has been refitted in a contemporary style whilst retaining bags of character. It fronts directly onto the prettily paved towpath of the Netherton Tunnel Branch Canal, right beside the aquaduct carrying the Birmingham Canal. With Netherton Tunnel only a few steps away, this is a really fascinating spot for gongoozling and soaking up the heritage. The agent’s pictures were taken in the rain, and don’t really do the exterior justice.
The cottage is at the end of a small period terrace which enjoys its own exclusive access from the main road. It benefits from an allocated parking space to the rear. A path leads round to the front door which opens straight into a spacious open plan living room. In the sitting area there is an exposed brick chimneypiece with a stunning solid fuel wood burner, ideal for those times when you just want to stay inside and enjoy cosying up by the fire. A window to the front overlooks the canal. The kitchen area is well fitted with contemporary built in appliances. A door leads to a modern luxury bathroom.
Stairs rise from the living room to the bedroom on the first floor. The present owners have fitted this out as an additional living space, taking advantage of the views of the canal, and the brightness of the room, which has windows to both the front and the rear. A steep ladder rises to a fully insulated attic room where there is plenty of space for storage, hobbies, or a studio. The present owners have a sofa bed up here.
The back door leads out to an enclosed rear and side garden with a patio area, lawn, brick shed, and side gate. There are anti-theft shutters throughout the house, and an alarm system to provide additional security.
