Kerwood House is an exceptional period townhouse set in the heart of the historic city centre. Arranged over five floors, the stylish accommodation offers great flexibility combined with the added benefit of a delightful courtyard garden with studio workshop. Particular features of note include sash windows, fireplaces, moulded cornicing and ceiling roses, as well as picture rails to some rooms.
On entering the house, the long entrance hall provides access through to the open-plan kitchen and family room. This is a light and airy space, ideal for entertaining with French doors leading out to the courtyard garden. The kitchen features a range of contemporary floor and wall units with a central island unit. The kitchen space moves in to a dining area and then in to the family room with a period fireplace. This space also features parquet flooring and panelling, combining contemporary style with period charm. On this ground floor there is also a cloakroom with a small storage cupboard.
Stairs lead down to the lower ground floor, which is split in to a basement room (currently used as a bedroom) with natural light by way of a light well. To the front of the lower ground floor is a further good sized basement/games room which in turn leads to a utility room. There is also a wet room shower.
The first floor features an elegant drawing room that spans the width of the house. Features in this stylish room include a gas-fired ''wood burner'', dual sash windows, a picture rail, moulded plaster cornicing and an ornate plaster ceiling rose. In addition, the first floor also has a study/bedroom and a cloakroom.
The second floor to the house encompasses the principal bedroom suite. The bedroom itself again spans the width of the house and mirrors the elegant period feature found in the drawing room. This leads through to a very good sized en suite bathroom with a central bath, separate shower cubicle, ''his & hers'' sink unit and a range of fitted wardrobes. Accessed from this second floor there is also a family bathroom.
Two further bedrooms occupy the third floor with the rear room offering views across the rooftops of the city centre towards the cathedral spire.
The rear courtyard garden to Kerwood House continues the stylish and contemporary theme mixed with period features, seen through the interior of the house. Mostly laid to wooden decking edged with raised beds and flanked on either side with flint and brick walls. To the far end of the courtyard is a stone patio leading to the timber studio workshop. French doors and windows allow plenty of light in to this space, making it ideal for many craft, art or workshop activities. A rear door from the studio provides direct access to an alley running along the rear of the property, for which there is vehicular and pedestrian right of access.
Kerwood House comes with the benefit of a leasehold car parking space in a secure underground car park opposite the house. The lease has a term of 125 years from the 8th December 1976 and we understand the current annual rent is approximately £1,200.
