    OWNER QUOTE: “It’s a great location – yet once you’re inside, the outside world just melts away.”

    Character and prestige
    One of four Grade II listed period homes, No. 205 Monument Road emanates Georgian glamour before you even set foot through the door, with a wrought iron pedestrian gate opening to a traditional checkered footpath, relaid by the current owners.

    Gravel borders lend low maintenance formality to the approach, making your way to the pilastered entrance and stepping up to the period front door with fanlight, which opens to a handy porch, whose part-glazed door offers an eyeline through to the entrance hall and up the stairs.

    OWNER QUOTE: “It’s a wonderful suntrap in the mornings at the front.”

    Emerging into the entrance hall, the period splendour of No. 205, Monument Road reveals itself in the high ceilings, tall, detailed skirtings, archways and original glazed tiles underfoot.

    A warm welcome
    A home lovingly refurbished by the current owners, step through into the living room on the left, where a real flame gas fire issues warmth and cosiness throughout the winter months. There is the potential to introduce a log-burning stove or open fire.

    Traditional sash windows are dressed in elegant plantation shutters, blending classic style with contemporary comfort, a feature found throughout the home.

    OWNER QUOTE: “The rooms are so spacious; you can use colour and be bold.”

    Along the hallway, also on the left, soft grey carpet cushions your step in the study, a calming, peaceful room, where fitted shelving in the alcoves either side of the chimney breast is ideal for storage.

    Returning to the hallway, beyond the staircase, step down to an inner lobby area, where a stable door provides access out to the side garden.

    Versatile spaces
    Opposite, stairs lead down to the lower ground floor, an area filled with potential, currently set up as study and large play room. Ideal as a cinema room, playroom or for storage, it has also served as a fun-filled music room, wonderful when entertaining. There is also the potential to extend this area, subject to planning permissions.


    Savour the moment
    Returning upstairs, make your way through into the dining room, where wooden flooring flows out underfoot and chandelier lighting illuminates mealtimes. Light streams in through the plantation shuttered window overlooking the garden to the side.

    Entertain with ease, as the walk-through pantry connects the dining room to the kitchen. Furnished with its original wooden shelves, diligently rubbed down and repolished, keep the clutter away from the entertaining and cooking spaces, with space for all the dried goods, spices and daily essentials. A shuttered window fills this space with natural light,

    Step down into the kitchen, tucked away with views out to the garden and direct access out. Consider the potential to build out and extend to the side for open-plan family living, as neighbouring homes have set precedent for.

    OWNER QUOTE: “What I love about these homes is they are so structurally sound – nothing breaks or sinks!”

    Pamper time
    Admire the curved skirtings and beautiful bannister as you ascend the handsome staircase up to the professionally polished wooden floor of the first-floor landing.

    Refresh, revive, relax and unwind in the sumptuously sized family bathroom, where a claw foot roll top bath is the ideal place for a soak, set within a mirrored alcove as light streams in through the shuttered window overlooking the garden. Next door there is a handy WC.

    With shuttered window overlooking the garden, along the hallway lies the first of five bountiful bedrooms. Built-in wardrobe storage is available with an original fireplace retained.

    Epitome of elegance
    Next door, with two tall sash windows drawing in light from the front, the master bedroom features fitted wardrobes within the alcoves to either side of the fireplace. A serene retreat dressed in blue and white, cream carpet extends underfoot. Admire the high skirtings, elegant coving and spacious ambience.

    On the second floor, discover two more spacious double bedrooms, each retaining its own unique character and personality, with fitted storage and original fireplaces.

    A fifth bedroom overlooks the front of the home. Neutrally decorated with plush champagne toned carpet, it could serve well as a nursery or study.

    OWNER QUOTE: “It is so quiet in this house, once the front door is shut you’re in your own world. It can be bustling with people, and you can still find your own quiet space.”

    Enchanting garden
    Outside, discover a garden that has evolved over the years under the loving care of its owners.

    Explore the different rooms within the garden, where borders filled with perennials infuse colour and interest throughout the seasons.

    In the lower garden, discreetly screened beneath the trees, discover a fantastic patio, perfect for entertaining, where two beautiful handmade reclaimed wooden benches invite you to rest and admire the view.

    A leafy oasis, where you can steal a moment of calm and unwind beneath the boughs of the cherry blossom tree. There are places for all the family, with a large area of lawn perfect for paddling pools in the height and heat of summer.

    Discover the secret seating area and fern garden beside the kitchen and dining room and breathe in the scent of lavender whilst admiring the rose garden. Visible from the garden and back bedrooms, admire the dome of The Oratory, one of the oldest churches in Birmingham.

    On your doorstep
    A bastion of tranquillity, it’s hard to believe that No. 205, Monument Road is set just back from Hadley Road and its expedient links into the city.

    Central and accessible, you can be on a bus or tram into the town centre in minutes, while Morrisons is only ten minutes from home.

    Closer to home, step out along Hagley Road where you can discover a whole host of restaurants, alongside a nail salon, hairdressers, a café where you can play board games and a dessert shop.
