    About this property

    • No. 66 is a fine example of a bay fronted Victorian home within the city, and the last residential house on the road before the
      pedestrianised high street. The traditional main entrance immediately welcomes you to the property with distinctive character synonymous with the era and street scene. The sitting room is a particular highlight due to the attractive bay window, feature fireplace and ceiling height.

      Moving through the ground floor there is a bright and airy dining room with a view of the garden and a fully fitted kitchen with built in appliances, floor and wall storage cupboards and the prospect of further extension and improvement. There is a shower room with a sink and under stairs storage that completes the ground floor.

      Moving to the first floor via the traditional Victorian staircase, the property continues to reveal itself with two double bedrooms at the front of the property benefitting from original sash windows, high ceilings and period features. There are two further bedrooms to the rear of the property overlooking the garden and a bathroom and separate WC.

      Whilst offering well-presented interiors and versatile accommodation, there is real potential to further improve the property. Decoratively, the character can be enhanced by ones own design and colour scheme, alternatively a more significant two storey extension could be considered with a number of options available (subject to planning permission) to improve what is already a brilliant family home.

      The thoughtfully designed and easily maintained garden, is one of the largest on Parchment Street and offers a real sense of peace and tranquility, exceptional for the location. With a charming and very productive apple tree, mature plants, well-stocked borders and a path that meanders to a private seating area at the rear boundary, the garden is a hidden retreat within the bustling city centre. Of note, the rear of the garden would make for an ideal office pod/studio/gym or occasional accommodation (subject to the relevant contents).
