A Georgian style, semi-detached town house, built in about 1846, with a wealth of attractive character features including deep skirting boards, high ceilings, decorative coving, picture rails, sash windows and open fireplaces. There is a pleasant 'green' outlook from all the windows in the house despite being in the town centre, something the current owner loved about the property when she first saw it 15 years ago.
The house is well presented and offers good family accommodation arranged over 4 floors. There are two reception rooms to the ground floor, which could be opened into one large reception room if preferred. The elegant sitting room is to the front of the house, which has a large sash window with original shutters and an open fire with a marble surround. The family room has a sash window overlooking the pretty rear garden and a further fireplace (currently blocked off) with built-in recess shelving.
On the lower ground floor, the dining room is a sociable space which is open to the kitchen. There is a sash window to the front with original shutters and a feature fireplace. The kitchen is fitted with a range of contemporary wall and base units with a granite worktop over incorporating a sink and drainer unit. There is a range cooker and space for further appliances in the adjoining utility room, which also houses the boiler. A shower room completes the accommodation on this floor.
There are five bedrooms in total, arranged over the first and second floors. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, one benefitting from built-in wardrobes. There is a family bathroom fitted with a traditional style roll top bath and wash hand basin, and a separate WC. On the second floor there are two double bedrooms, a WC and a single bedroom which is currently used as a dressing room.
The property is approached via a driveway providing off road parking for multiple cars. The front garden is screened by a brick and ragstone wall and mature hedging. Stone steps lead up to an imposing entrance vestibule with decorative stone quoins. There is a wide gate leading to the garage and rear garden, where extra parking is available if required.
The rear garden is a most delightful feature of the property, being mainly laid to lawn with a large patio area running adjacent to the rear of the house. There is additional parking space when required in front of the garage. An attractive old brick wall runs the length of the garden to one side creating privacy and there are deep borders stocked with a wide array of flowers and shrubs, which provide colour and scent to the garden all year round.
Period homes of this calibre are a rare find in this location and we recommend an early viewing to appreciate the accommodation on offer.
