Welcome to Harvington, built at the turn of nineteenth century, the iconic “Harvington” was one of the first properties completed on the prestigious and now highly sought-after St. Agnes Road. Originally purchased by brass foundry owner, Samuel Mason, in 1893 the well-respected local family retained the property for generations. This beautiful period home is steeped in history and truly reflects both character and quality, and is now introduced to the open market for the first time in 35 years.
Approaching Harvington, you immediately appreciate the character and impact of the residence – with a large private drive and ample parking the property certainly makes a statement but the details stand out with a charmingly idiosyncratic doorbell constructed from an original motor car warning bell this property has a distinctive character and quality.
Through the large, double opening wooden front door you’ll find a fabulous entrance hallway featuring high vaulted ceilings, dado’s and archways as well as a stunning Victorian tiled floor leading to the ground floor accommodation. The newly fitted kitchen, complete with double fronted oven, and generous open plan breakfast room enjoy beautiful views over the gardens as well as ample natural light from a modern apex window. To the front of the property you’ll find a warm, inviting and characterful family sitting room, featuring a large bay window as well as feature fireplace, picture rails and period detailing. To the rear of the property the owners have significantly and sympathetically extended the property to create a truly remarkable open plan living space – a modern family lounge and dining room extend into the sizable conservatory and directly onto a large terrace and onwards into the outdoor gardens. The space which was designed to create a location for a local concert orchestra to rehearse feel contemporary, warm and flexible with exceptional attention to detail, blending the external space with the internal for a stylish and thoughtful extension to this already impressive property.
Completing the downstairs accommodation you’ll also find a large study, generous utility room and W.C. as well as access to a sizable 234 ft sq wine cellar.
On the upper floors Harvington features 5 impressive bedrooms, 2 of which are ensuite and an exemplary games/music room. The current owners have taken great care and attention across all bedrooms to create large and inviting modern spaces that enjoy the multiple aspects the property has to offer. The master bedroom is light, open and well apportioned and the ensuite features a double shower and show stopping free standing bath. The gorgeous split level floors create inviting and spacious landing areas throughout the upper floors and showcase high quality finishes throughout.
Returning to the grounds and gardens, as well as two long, well established borders with the neighbouring houses, number 41 shares a boundary with Moseley Ashfield Cricket ground established in 1904 and Moseley Golf club established in 1892. This cruically means that despite its location in a vibrant central Birmingham suburb, the house and garden are not overlooked. It also leads to a wide range of visiting wildlife and birdlife including foxes, bats, woodpeckers and barn owls.
The gardens are extensive and well-established, comprising a first lawn with flower beds planted by garden designer Jonathan Sandilands, a second lawn with summer house previously the site of a tennis court, a plum orchard and a vegetable patch (with a productive asparagus bed).
Harvington, in the heart of one of Moseley’s most desirable locations is a real testament to quality in all senses, from redbrick foundations to the beautiful light filled warm and characterful property we see today.
