Seller Insight “In terms of what initially attracted my husband and I to this property, I’d have to say that it was the location,” says Helen. “Selly Park is a very special place. It’s a conservation area so everyone who lives here has to be committed to preserving the beauty and integrity of these lovely old houses, and as a result the location is not only very attractive but also highly desirable.” “We purchased the house twenty-one years ago, and although it was just lovely when we came here, we’ve made quite a few changes to make it more conducive to modern living. We began by taking down a wall between two rather small reception rooms to create one lovely big space that’s now an amazing room to entertain in, we created a beautiful bedroom in the loft, we refurbished the kitchen and bathrooms to a really high standard and we also added a brand new boiler. It’s a house that’s ideal for modern family life, but it retains a great many gorgeous original features, so it has bags of character and charm. It’s a beautiful home and absolutely immaculate throughout.” “The house also benefits from having one of the largest gardens on the road,” continues Helen, “and that was another huge attraction when we first came to view the property. It’s mainly laid to lawn but there are some attractive shrubs and trees that provide colour and interest all year round, and right at the very end is a gate that leads out onto a private park that leads down to the river. It’s absolutely stunning and whenever I sit out there I find it so hard to believe that the house is just minutes from Birmingham city centre.” *
