A unique development opportunity to create a stunning 7 bedroom house in this prime Edgbaston address. Planning permission in place for an impressive family home set within a prime south-west facing plot of approximately 0.75acre. Cleverly designed to incorporate two charming Grade II Listed farm-worker's cottages dating to the early 1800's, the scheme is for a "Grand Designs" style modern contemporary new build residence to the rear, linked with the existing cottages via a feature glass walkway.
The distinctive development offers some 6,450 sqft (600 sq m) of accommodation including 5,000 sq ft (460 sq m) of new build with potential for up to 7 bedrooms. The house boasts excellent ground floor living, dining and entertaining space, a basement with gym, cinema, leisure facilities and two en-suite double bedrooms, in addition to four excellent first floor bedroom suites. The existing cottages can be used as self-contained ancillary living accommodation and/or home office space making this a versatile property to suit a variety of requirements.
