Studio Cottage


This period property was built, and extended during the period 1910 to 1930's. Originally built as the chauffer's home for the adjacent property, it was later enlarged and part used as a studio by Barry Jackson, the then owner/impresario of the Birmingham Hippodrome.
Now a five-bedroom family home with lots of scope and extensive, private grounds.
A large entrance hall opens to two further reception rooms, the ground floor bedroom suite and a spacious fitted kitchen/diner. The latter has internal stairs down to the extensive basement area.
Stairs from the hall lead to the first-floor landing, off which are four double bedrooms and family bathroom. The guest double has an en-suite bathroom and an external staircase, ideal for night owls.
The main bedroom suite occupies the former studio room. This spacious and vaulted room has much character and includes a sitting room with wood-burning stove and a small, west facing balcony. Large, full height windows provide lots of natural light. A mezzanine floor with stairs hosts the double bed. Below this are an en-suite bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe.
