About this property

  • Coming to the market for the first time in over 50 years, this elegant detached Edwardian town house sits within a spacious and private corner plot in Albany Road. The rarity value of this property cannot be over-stated. Delightfully unspoiled, the house benefits from beautifully proportioned rooms with high ceilings, which retain a wealth of period features including original floorboards, cornicing, deep skirtings, picture rails and original fireplaces.

    All the reception rooms are accessed from the main entrance hall, the drawing room and dining room enjoying large bay windows. A cosy sitting room towards the back of the house has an original fire surround and mantle and French doors through to the garden room, which was added in 2006. The garden room is a particular feature of the house, having two full walls of windows, travertine flooring with underfloor heating and French doors onto the garden. An original full-height Edwardian oak dresser fills one wall of the kitchen/breakfast room, which also boasts a walk-in pantry, with original ‘meat-safe', slate work surfaces and, like the kitchen, a quarry tiled floor. There is also a walk-in larder. A door opens through to an L-shaped utility/boot room and to a downstairs shower room/WC.

    Upstairs, from the galleried landing, are four large double bedrooms, all with original fitted wardrobes and two with bay windows. A fifth smaller bedroom/study has French doors opening onto a wrought iron balcony. Completing the first floor is a family shower room, with original linen cupboards, and a separate WC. The property benefits from a large, part-boarded loft space.

    The house sits centrally within its private and generously proportioned corner plot, including a walled garden, off-street parking for several cars, a garage and a fully insulated studio. The garden, with glimpses of the Cathedral spire, is predominantly laid to lawn, with areas of terrace/ pergolas draped with wisteria, clematis, vines and honeysuckle, in addition to numerous mature trees, such as ginkgo, walnut, holly, fig, apple and pear.
