A stunning Grade II Listed five bedroom Regency Style home, in the highly sought after Park Estate. The house benefits from glorious views and rear south facing gardens.
A fine Grade II Listed Regency style house, one of a group of the earliest to be built in The Park in circa 1829/32. Believed to be designed by Architect Peter F Robinson, who was retained by the 4th Duke of Newcastle to assist in proposals for the residential layout within The Park Estate.
The house forms part of an important parade of similar of period housing fronting Park Terrace and overlooking The Park and with far reaching views from the upper floors.
Spread over four principal floors and a basement floor. From the Park Terrace ground floor entrance a lovely hallway leading through to a fine sitting room with a front family room/library. Both rooms are of excellent proportions with fine cornice work and chimney pieces. The sitting room with shuttered sash windows and access to a balcony.
The lower ground floor has a hallway leading to the formal dining room with a feature fireplace surround, cast iron inset and again shuttered sash windows with access to a further balcony. Cloaks with wash hand basin and low level WC. To the front there is a wonderful "Plain English" fitted kitchen with a range of base and wall units with oak work surfaces, Belfast style sink unit, integrated fridge, dishwasher and a Britannia Range cooker. Access to a generous utility cupboard study area and breakfast room and separate access to a front open courtyard and stone steps up to Park Terrace.
To the upper floors there are five double bedrooms, two bathrooms and an en suite shower room.
The basement level provides further versatile accommodation, currently consisting of family room / bedroom 6, gymnasium, shower room, kitchen & wine cellar, plant / boiler room and access to the rear gardens.
Outside - The gardens enjoy a sunny aspect and are arranged over three levels. The principal terrace is laid to a mix of flagstones and pea gravel with a central stone staircase leading to the lower ground floor balcony. A wrought iron staircase leads down to the main lawned gardens that enjoys views over the Park estate. A thoughtfully landscaped garden that needs to be seen in order to be appreciated.
To the front of the property there are wrought iron railings, main entrance door to the property and stone steps leading down to the lower ground floor courtyard, this in turn gives access to the breakfast room and also access to the unique cave which has three compartments and power and light.
