About this property

  • Built circa 1820, the property has been in the same ownership for over 20 years and is a fine example of a Georgian townhouse with Victorian enhancements which complement this wonderful home.

    The beautifully proportioned accommodation retains a wealth of character including original period features and turning staircase.

    Thoroughly maintained over the years there has been a sympathetic approach to the period features and enhanced with an abundance of natural light arranged over the five floors.

    Leading from the hall is a bright sitting room with large bay to the front and situated to the rear a sizeable dining room, a lovely spacious contemporary dining kitchen with door leading to the garden and separate utility.

    The first and second floor boasts five bedrooms of excellent proportions and two bathrooms.

    The third floor provides excellent versatile accommodation for teenagers/ guests with large walk in wardrobe/dressing area with storage and two bedrooms.

    There is good provision of storage throughout the house with fitted cupboards, a large store to the lower ground floor and a further good sized reception room currently being used as an office with a large bay window to the front.

    To the rear, the property is complimented by a pretty rear walled garden with paved terrace and lawned garden, providing areas for seating and entertaining.

    There is the potential to buy the adjoining 2 bed cottage, by separate negotiation.
