A unique town house in a highly regarded town.
Digbeth House is a Grade II listed property with an early nineteenth-century front elevation to seventeenth and eighteenth-century accommodation. Situated close to the centre of the town, the property stands out from its neighbours due to the unusual rectangular bracketed bay window. At the rear the property extends into exceptional accommodation which was the subject of an illustrated article in House & Garden'. Internally the property retains many interesting period features reflecting its changing history including flagstone floors, handsome fireplaces, wall panelling, beams and sash windows.
The charming and characterful living accommodation is set out over three floors. The front door leads into an entrance lobby which opens into the principal sitting room which is well-proportioned with attractive fitted cupboards and shelves. There is a further sitting room which has a handsome inglenook fireplace and two deep windows with shutters. A double height kitchen/dining room with substantial beams lies at the rear of the ground floor. At one end is a good range of wall and base units. There is plenty of space for a good sized table and chairs while large sash windows and double doors afford views of the courtyard garden and allow light to flood in.
The bedroom accommodation is generous with a good-sized principal bedroom with en suite shower room and fitted cupboards. The guest bedroom suite has wall panelling, a handsome fireplace and en suite shower room. There are four further bedrooms served by a family bathroom. Bedroom four has fitted shelves and a pretty period fireplace. There is a very useful cellar and extensive attic storage which is accessed via a loft ladder.
Lying to the rear of the property and accessed from the kitchen and principal sitting room is a courtyard garden which provides an idyllic area for al fresco dining. An open bay single garage is located in Fox Lane.
