A fine Victorian townhouse occupying an elevated position in one of Stamfords most desirable locations. Built in 1881 of local stone under a slate roof, this beautiful property retains many original features, synonymous with the period. The property is in excellent order thoughout, has beautiful gardens and a large double garage with workshop area.
A York stone pathway leads to a Victorian door opening onto a light filled entrance hall with tiled floor and glass roof. An internal door opens to the inner hallway allowing access to the ground floor accommodation.
The sitting room has a wide bay with French doors and sliding sash sidelights offering charming views over the front garden. The room retains all of the original features including the fire surround with open cast grate, deep skirting boards, picture rail and plaster work. The dining room is beautifully proportioned with large sliding sash window looking over the rear terrace and an under stairs cupboard providing great storage space. To the rear of the hallway is a useful boot room/utility storage space, opposite which is a WC. The breakfast room has oak flooring and a gas fire set within a pretty wooden surround. Next door is the kitchen with a range of oak wall and floor standing cabinets, granite work surfaces and a range of built in appliances.
On the first floor are two of the four bedrooms. The master bedroom is to the front of the property, has an original fire place and commanding views over the Welland Valley countryside towards Wothorpe. To the rear of this floor is another bedroom, currently used as a dressing room with fully built in wardrobes providing versatile hanging and storage space. Next door is a large shower room with a spacious shower enclosure, wash hand basin and airing cupboard. A separate WC can be accessed from the landing.
The staircase rises to a landing space and two further bedrooms. The first is to the front of the property and again, enjoys far reaching countryside views. To the rear is the fourth bedroom, currently used as a home office, and has a lovely fireplace and views over the rear garden. Next door is a spacious bathroom with panelled bath tub, original wash hand basin and original floor to ceiling storage cupboards. A separate WC is next door, although this could be incorporated into the bathroom if required.
The front of the property is approached by a York stone pathway flanked by well stocked borders and a neat lawn. The rear garden is beautifully styled with a large Indian stone-tiered terrace that returns around the side of the property with raised borders. Ambient lighting works to great effect with several seating areas for outdoor entertaining.
The garden itself is separated into individual spaces and laid to lawn with well-stocked flower beds, fruit trees and unusual plants. Hedges separate the fruit and vegetable gardens with both ground level and raised beds, a terraced area with potting shed and greenhouse with workbench and shelving.
The large double garage is an excellent space with electric roller door and workshop space. There are ample power sockets and open eaves for further storage. The garage is accessed via Tinwell Road Lane.
