This spacious home for sale in Birmingham has been designed by an award-winning architect
When award-winning architect Gavin Orton received the brief to refurbish this 1970s property on the edge of Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham, he turned to the Passivhaus principle of 'fabric first' for inspiration.
Now on the market for £950,000, Gavin transformed the three-storey house to an exceptional standard using high quality materials. With five bedrooms, four bathrooms and three generous reception rooms, the entire space has energy efficiency at its core, including wall insulation, triple glazing and good air-tightness levels.
The large hallway, complete with two built-in cupboards, creates a warm welcome. The ground floor also consists of a useful shower room, guest cloakroom, utility room, kitchen/breakfast nook with a central island, separate diner, and a sitting room flooded with light.
While the whole space flows beautifully, the open-plan kitchen by Classic Interiors is the star of the show. We love the elegant cabinetry, beautiful Cambria Quartz worktops (complete with matching splashbacks), bi-fold doors, range of integrated appliances, and a less formal breakfast bar for on-the-go dining.
Elsewhere, four double bedrooms are accessed from the first floor landing along with the well fitted family bathroom, while bedrooms two and three sit at the rear of the house with glorious views over the leafy garden.
The outside space, designed by the award-winning landscape expert Robert Colbourne, is a head-turner with mature planted borders, a lovely lawn level area, specimen trees, and a tranquil seating area at the bottom of the garden. We couldn't think of a better location for hosting a summer garden party.
Tempted? This property is currently on the market for £950,000 with Knight Frank.
