Surprise style in suburban Brum.

Byline: By Maureen Messent

A SPIRAL birch staircase, a Juliet balcony, curved picture windows - if this all sounds a bit too much for suburban Birmingham then take a look at 56 Serpentine Road, Harborne.

Even from the outside this home looks unconventional.

Step inside and you will find its been renovated to eye-popping levels with added stairs, unexpected twists and the accent on rooms providing the maximum light possible.

Here is a cleverly designed cloakroom at ground floor level. And from the hall is access to the cellar and two main reception rooms. The dining room connects to a library area with fitted bookcase on one wall and recessed telephone shelf/study with further shelving.

Sandstone fireplaces feature in both rooms.

The newly-fitted (top of the range) kitchen is superbly equipped and fitted and leads through to the breakfast room with curved picture windows and pyramid roof light.

From the hall, a staircase leads to the half landing, where a door and floor to ceiling picture window lead outside to wide decked steps down to the rear terrace and garden.

Up on the landing, doors lead to the main bedroom with ensuite and super fitted wardrobe, sash windows and partly vaulted ceiling.

Bedroom two has the Juliet balcony. Also on this level is bedroom three and family bathroom.

A birch veneered spiral staircase sweeps up to the second floor's main bedroom, which could be used as a further sitting room, and the ensuite shower room.

To the front is a newly-laid gravel driveway for off-road parking. The back garden is a circular lawned area with mature trees and shrubs.

56 Serpentine Road, Harborne, is offered for sale at pounds 525,000 by Knight Frank on 0121 200 2220.


DRAMATIC... the rear of 56 Serpentine Road and inset, the front.
