Summary: This is a rare opportunity to purchase a truly exceptional residence and arguably one of the finest examples of late Victorian architecture in Birmingham, West Midlands. Built in 1884, Langdale House is a handsome and most impressive property with great character. The very generous accommodation (amounting to 6,895 sq. ft spanning over four floors) is of exceptional quality and provides every modern convenience whilst still retaining many of its period features, including the grand wooden panelled snooker room. It maintains an atmosphere of elegance and charm throughout. Only a handful of Barnt Green's original houses have held onto their acres, Langdale House being one of the few, boasting incredible formal grounds in excess of 2 acres and is located on one of Barnt Green's most prestigious roads.

Description: The internal accommodation is outstanding, with a bright, practical and versatile layout which offers enormous flexibility for socialising and entertaining on a grand scale. Without a doubt the imposing staircase, which rises over three floors, and the galleried landings, are among the highly attractive features of the house, while the solid oak flooring gives the entrance hall a warm and welcoming feel. The outstanding ground floor accommodation comprises a superb 36 ft drawing room, which is flooded with natural light having full height bay windows, which also offer stunning views of the garden. There is a beautiful formal dining room, study area, cloaks cupboard, large guest cloakroom, utility room and showpiece kitchen/dining room complete with granite worktops, a 4 oven AGA with gas hob, plus an eye level integral Gaggenau oven and separate microwave. From the kitchen/dining room there is further access to a generous family room and additional access into the gardens. The attached outbuildings can be accessed through the house and include two large garages, a boot room, WC, a 33 ft garden room and plenty of storage space.

The first floor offers a magnificent master bedroom suite including a luxurious en suite bathroom and separate shower room, both fitted with Villeroy and Bosch furniture, a walk in wardrobe and dressing room. As well as a further double bedroom (accessed via a separate staircase) with an attractive en suite shower room, there is also a grand billiards /games room with wooden panelling and fireplace, a further cloakroom, a large study or first floor retreat and a large roof terrace with views over the gardens. Natural light floods across the second floor through several large roof windows and there are four well appointed bedrooms together with an opulent bathroom.

With under floor heating, Cat 5e cabling, plus all main rooms wired for satellite TV and music, Langdale House has the grandeur of a Victorian house with the technological convenience of modern day living.

Outside: The residence is approached via a private tree lined driveway and stands within more than 2 acres of beautiful, mature grounds which include a paddock, original Victorian paths, a large pond and a delightful stream. The attached outbuildings can be accessed through the house and include two garages, boot room, WC, a 33 ft garden room and plenty of storage space.

Location: Barnt Green is a delightful village offering a variety of amenities including local shopping facilities, cafes, two popular gastropubs, doctor's surgery, two churches, dentist, St Andrews First School and train station. Langdale House itself is located approximately 1.5 miles from the village centre and conveniently located for many fine walks, including the renowned Lickey Hills Country Park. There are also many sporting facilities including a cricket club, Blackwell Golf Club, Barnt Green sailing club and many other societies including local orchestra, the Midland Sinfonia.
