    About this property

    • A charming Grade II Listed mid-terraced town house of brick construction under a slate roof.

      Formerly occupied by HSBC Bank, the property has been comprehensively refurbished and modernized in an individual style. This provides the incoming purchaser with all the benefits of modern day living amongst the property's age and charm.

      The careful restoration has retained a wealth of period features including open fireplaces, exposed timbers, sash windows, exposed floorboards, 4-panel internal pine doors, built-in wardrobes and storage cupboards.

      The improvement works include complete re-roofing, re-wiring, re-plumbing, a bespoke handmade kitchen, modern bathrooms with white suites, a useful single storey extension to rear, part double glazing, some new internal doors, floor coverings, hard landscaping and landscaped gardens.

      Due to its age and architecture the property offers elegantly proportioned rooms with generous ceiling heights, all giving a tremendous feeling of space and light. Well-designed bespoke Barn and Brook handmade kitchen in the style of a 1950s diner.

      Large opening into the breakfast room leading out onto the garden with fireplace, ideal for informal entertaining. Useful sitting room to front (note the planning permission to convert the property to residential is conditional on this room remaining as retail use only. This currently generates income stream).

      Impressive family room with four three-quarter height double glazed picture windows, two roof lights, access to garden, generous ceiling height. From here there are a number of rooms (formerly outbuildings, bread oven and laundry) offering space for working from home, a library, or additional bedroom/annexe accommodation with shower room. Utility room – concrete floor, sprinkler system storage tanks, roof light. Cellar and the original bank safe, ideal for wine storage, etc.

      Delightful first floor drawing room could revert to another bedroom with scope to create an en suite bath or shower room, subject to the relevant consents. Generous family bath and shower room with wood burning stove and aspect to the rear.

      The second floor layout with two generous bedrooms, a spacious central landing and bath/shower room.

      Landscaped walled east facing garden with number of raised beds, entertaining area. Garden store housing biomass boiler for hot water and central heating. Pedestrian access to rear.

      Garage parking is available by separate negotiation in the form of the adjacent coach house (Lot 2).

      Lot 2
      Separate former coach house with planning permission for conversion to B1 offices. Ideal for working from home or income stream.

    Whilst having a traditional facade, the interior bucks convention with an individual design and fit out, and a tilt to quirky. We are happy to conduct a virtual tour via video or Facetime.
