    Handsome Georgian Townhouse

    About this property

    • 2 Market Place is a handsome 18th century townhouse, enjoying a prominent position, and complete with private gardens, substantial garage and off street parking. The house is accessed from the rear for vehicles and with pedestrian access directly onto the market place providing fantastic convenience. Formerly a shop within the town, the current owners have successful obtained listed building consent for a change of use to full residential, which has been activated. The new layout within the plans makes for an excellent use of internal space, which is deceptively deep behind the main façade. The plans incorporate open plan and conventional living with functional areas such as study, boot room and pantry.

      The house will have five bedrooms, with four on the first floor, two with en suite bath or shower rooms, and a further bathroom. The second floor is designed as a bedroom, sitting area and shower room.

      Externally there are enclosed gardens, with terrace area, outbuildings, garaging, and a large parking area set behind a high wall and gates from Chapel Street. The house requires full refurbishment.

    Obviously the Georgian façade is an immediate draw, but the depth of the house was surprising and particularly the size of gardens behind, together with the parking which is essential.
