Ivy House is a fine Grade II listed period townhouse situated in the quiet back water of Church Street, within a level walk of the town centre. The property is situated in a Conservation Area and is set behind tall walls with wonderful established gardens and ample parking.
Built in the 17th century with significant alterations in the 18th century, and more recently to the coach house, this impressive home offers in excess of 4,740 sq ft of accommodation arranged over three floors. The property offers many fine period features including fireplaces, exposed beams, flagstone flooring, exposed wooden floorboards and wooden panelled doors.
The main house is arranged over three floors and is entered into via a reception hall with stone floor and 17th century oak staircase. From here, there is access to the three impressive reception rooms: the drawing room, family room and a room currently used as a study. Beyond the family room is a large kitchen/breakfast room with flagstone floor, beamed ceiling and direct access to the gardens. A further door leads to a shower room and a study/occasional bedroom, and additionally there is a secondary staircase to the first floor.
The first floor offers a large principal bedroom suite with sitting/dressing room, en suite bathroom and a mezzanine above, which is accessed via a spiral staircase. Also at this level are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom, which features a beautiful large stained glass window.
To the second floor are two further excellent size bedrooms and a useful storage room.
The Coach House
The Coach House is attached to the main home and provides an excellent extension to the accommodation of the main house, but also offers the potential to be used independently, which could be an ideal space for a dependent relative.
The main feature is the living/dining room with its part-glass ceiling; this room conveniently links up with the main house via a connecting door to the drawing room, and offers access to the gardens via French doors.
There is also a quality kitchen, smart shower room and a bedroom with vaulted ceiling and access to a first floor balcony.
The property enjoys an established enclosed garden with a level lawn and well-stocked flower beds. There is a large flagstone terrace leading off the house, and intersecting pathways which lead to secret pockets of the garden.
Double gates set in a high wall open into the grounds with a gravel drive leading to a large parking area.
There is an oak-framed double garage with twin doors, and wooden steps which lead up to a studio/bedroom with its own shower room, making this space an ideal home office or guest accommodation suite.
