Cannock, WS11, GB
Available with no upward chain, this semi-detached family home is ideal for first time buyers and buy-to-investors in particular. The property begins with a dropped kerb for vehicles to lead onto a hardened part of the front garden that acts as a driveway. The remainder of the front garden is lawn and there is a gated side passage to lead to the rear garden.
Once inside the property, viewers will be greeted by a short but ample carpeted hallway. Immediately ahead is the staircase to the first floor whereas to the left is a doorway through to a vast lounge. This room is very impressive with a large double glazed window to the front and patio doors to the rear. The lounge is large enough for it to be divided into two spaces for a sofa suite and dining table if desired.
A door to the rear of the lounge gives access to the kitchen. By now viewers will have realised that this is a very spacious house for the money, as the kitchen is lovely and wide and has units and work surfaces running along the outer walls. The kitchen is a lovely suite that is complimented by stylish tiles to the splashback areas. There is an integrated electric oven with separate gas hob and an overhead extractor fan. The opposite (inner) walls of the kitchen have a fitted breakfast bar added. At the front of the kitchen is an unusual but welcome space that I have named as the breakfast bar although it has many potential uses such as an office or storage. Furthermore, there is access to under the staircase for further storage and a cupboard housing the boiler.
Moving upstairs, the landing area has doors leading off to all three bedrooms, the bathroom, a separate wc and a storage cupboard at the end. All three bedrooms are generous and could fit a double bed if required. Bedrooms one and two to the left of the house are definitely double bedrooms with large spaces for a king size bed, wardrobes and other furniture. Bedroom two includes a cupboard that makes use of the void above the stairwell. Bedroom three is a long room that's over ten feet in length and therefore could accommodate a double bed toward the window at the front, but is perhaps better served as a generous single bedroom.
Finally for the interior, the bathroom and the wc are separated but are nice, clean white suites. The bathroom includes a bath with shower over, wash basin and a heated towel. There is stylish cladding around the bath with feature tiling to the left wall. The same lovely tiling is used to finish off the look of the separate wc in the next room, which includes the toilet located at the far end in front of the obscured double glazed window.
Finishing outside, the property has a remarkable rear garden that begins with a large, full-width slabbed patio that is ideal for seating furniture and a barbecue area. The remainder of the garden is a vast expanse of lawn with a concrete path running down the middle toward a wooden shed at the end. The garden is a blank canvas for the next owners to create something fabulous as I could imagine this to be the ideal size to host summer events.

Johnson Road is located near to west side of Cannock between the A34 Stafford Road and Pye Green Road. This therefore gives excellent road links to the centre of Cannock, Stafford and Hednesford. There is a less than 10 minute drive for drivers to reach the M6 motorway (Birmingham, Walsall & Stafford) and the A5 (Lichfield, Brownhills and Tamworth) as well as the A460 north beyond Hednesford towards Rugeley.
The property is roughly equidistant from both Cannock and Hednesford railway stations. There are both in walking distance (maybe 15-20 minutes) and both form part of the Chase Line which runs from Rugeley Trent Valley to Birmingham New Street, passing through Cannock and Walsall.
Those preferring to take the bus will be delighted to find very regular service to Cannock Town Centre from Pye Green Road. Naturally, buses to Stafford are available from the A34 (Stafford Road).
SCHOOLS & AMENITIES
Buyers with children will be delighted with how close this house is to both catchment schools. In particular, the local primary school is a short walk (only 0.1 miles) to Moorhill Primary on Pye Green Road. The catchment secondary school is the well regarded Cannock Chase High School and is a 0.8 mile walk. Although we have researched this information, it is highly recommended that parents check with the local authority to confirm catchment.
Travelling south down Pye Green Road and onto the A34 brings the new owners to Cannock town centre where there is a plethora of well-known and independent stores and food outlets. Suburban Cannock is well stocked with little newsagents and convenience stores, the nearest being on the nearby junction of Pye Green Road and Cemetery Road.
In the opposite direction (north), Pye Green Road leads directly to Cannock Chase national park AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and therefore this opens up recreational activities such as walking, running, cycling and riding.
