    About this property

    • 19 Wellington Square is a beautiful semi detached Grade II listed town house found on one of the most sought after squares in Pittville, close to the town centre and Pittville Park.

      Having been sympathetically and extensively restored and modernised, the house enjoys very spacious accommodation arranged over four floors.

      The lower ground floor features unusually high ceiling heights and with large windows to the front and rear elevations. The floor feels light and airy. The original stone staircase has been unveiled and restored. Accommodation on this level includes a TV lounge and office / study, Neptune kitchen/dining room (fully fitted with a Fischer and Paykel fridge, dishwasher, gas hob and two Neff ovens including a microwave), WC, utility room with washing machine and dryer, pantry, study and wide hallway with access to the private garden.

      On the upper ground floor, the superb sitting room is a lovely room, with twin windows overlooking the square at the front, original cornice, ceiling rose, picture rail and fireplace. At the rear of the house, overlooking the garden, is the dining room, also featuring twin windows, cornice, ceiling rose and picture rail. On this level there is also a quiet, bright and spacious library to the rear with fireplace surrounded by a Chesney white marble surround.

      Leading from the ground floor to the first floor is a magnificent cantilevered bull-nose construction stone staircase with an original wooden balustrade which is set off by a cupola that provides a flood of natural light.

      The large en suite principal bedroom sits on the first floor along with two further generous double bedrooms and a family sized shower room housing the gas boiler and pressurised cylinder. On this landing, there is an area which could also be used as a reading or writing area.

      The final floor boasts three further double bedrooms along with a large bathroom to service these rooms.

      Throughout the house there are wonderful character features including doors, door furniture and skirting boards, as well as cornices and ceiling roses, fireplaces and picture rails.

      Outside to the front, wrought iron railings and a pedestrian gate provide access to the house, with an imposing stone staircase to the main entrance door. Additional access is provided by a gate at the side to the rear garden. Facing south, the rear is bathed in sunshine for most of the day and incorporates a pergola over the alfresco dining area, small vegetable garden, fruit trees and bushes with further entertaining seating areas.

      At the end of the garden is a detached 1830s Coach House, which is ancillary to the house, reached through the garden, and offers a number of potential uses, for example, staff accommodation, studio, home office or alfresco dining kitchen. There is also a secure off street parking space to the rear of the property.

    I love the proportions of this house, along with the fact it sits at the end of the row, overlooking the stunning garden square. The current owners have done a very sympathetic renovation uncovering some of the best period features it has to offer.
