99 Lyndon Road is a beautifully presented, much improved, thoughtfully extended, traditional 4 bedroom detached family home, occupying an impressive elevated corner plot in this well-connected residential area, with potential to extend.
We have lived very happily at our home in Lyndon Road for 20 years, during our time here we have extended and lovingly refurbished both the inside and outside space to create a very comfortable and welcoming home.We particularly love the herringbone wooden flooring in the downstairs rooms; the living room is American redwood, the dining room is pine, the hallway is oak and we commissioned an handmade oak front door to match. The living and dining rooms are both a good size and have windows to the side which flood them with light, the dining room rear window and doors stretch from floor to ceiling which gives a ‘garden room’ feel with direct access to the patio outside.
The kitchen is an extension we added to the house, we wanted a large space and have enjoyed being able to use it for social gatherings, as it also leads out to the garden. The kitchen furniture is made from beech wood and is free-standing giving some flexibility for changes to the layout, and it has a large Belfast-style white ceramic double sink. At the time we extended we also added a downstairs office which has lots of power points and a Virgin media fibre broadband connection, perfect for working from home or for those who need to study. The original under stairs pantry with tiled floor is still in-situ which we use for storage but could possibly be converted to a shower room as it is adjacent to the downstairs cloakroom.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms, all of which (along with the hall and landing) have been re-plastered giving a fresh, modern feel. There is also a box room which we find invaluable space for storage, but we think children would fall in love with a ‘secret room’ for toys and games! The bathroom is quite big and has a large shower cubical with Porcelanosa tiling. It is the view from the upstairs front rooms that gives you an appreciation of the elevation of the house and the space around it, which creates a sense of privacy as it doesn’t feel directly overlooked.
Outside we have block paved the drive which is large enough for at least three cars, from the drive there are two gates to the garden and we have paved a pathway around the entire house so it is easy to wheel things around. The rear garden itself was professionally landscaped and is laid to three main areas; a lawned area with a small circular patio, a wildlife area which encourages birds, bees, butterflies and other critters such as lady birds and dragonflies and thirdly there is a very large private patio to the side of the house where we have barbeques, entertain and laze on the swing - as this area gets sunshine all day. It is in the summer that the garden really looks at its best, aside from the shrubs we have vines, clematis, honeysuckle and a plethora of bulbs which come to life providing interest and colour. The garden is also easy to maintain, as in the past we have added bark to keep down the weeds and the beds are all raised on railway sleepers, saving your back!
From a convenience perspective our home is incredibly well situated, as it is within walking distance of Olton station (trains to Solihull, Birmingham and beyond), buses, libraries, shops and parks. For those who need to travel more widely on public transport, it is easy to get to Birmingham International train station and the airport facilities. We have wonderful neighbours and a supportive community with a thriving residents association, so there is plenty to do and get involved with.
Currently the house has not been extended above the garage, kitchen, into the loft space, or to the left hand side, but this is something new owners may choose to investigate.
We will be very sorry to leave as we feel that the house is a part of us, we are only the third family to live in it since it was built in approximately 1950, but now we need to entrust it to new occupants and hope they will love living here and take care of it as much as we have.
