    About this property

    • 16 Hospital Road is an impressive Regency Grade II Listed town house, which dates from the early 19th century. The house offers elegant accommodation over three floors and is constructed of flint with red brick dressings and render under a slate roof and fluted barge boards. The property retains many original 19th century features such as sash windows, shutters, fireplaces, deep skirtings, decorative cornicing and very well proportioned rooms. The ground floor accommodation comprises an entrance hall which leads through to a delightfully spacious reception room with a stone surround gas fireplace and sash windows to the front. Double doors open into the substantial drawing room, a perfect entertaining space with gas fireplace and French doors out onto the terrace. The open plan dining room/kitchen is the heart of the house located at the rear of the property.

      The kitchen has been fitted with matching base and wall mounted units and has a pretty view overlooking the garden. The utility room is off the kitchen and has a range of base and wall mounted units, door to the garden and access to the down stairs cloakroom. The study is off the dining room and has a gas fireplace and view over the front garden. The hall also gives access to a door leading down to a large cellar which enjoys good head height and has wine bins. Currently used for storage it has potential for a variety of uses subject to the necessary consents being obtained.

      Upstairs on the first floor the principal bedroom is a very well proportioned bedroom with a spacious dressing room and large en suite shower room. There are a further three bedrooms, a family bathroom with a free standing bath and separate shower and an additional shower room.

      Outside
      The property is set back from the road behind a flint wall and reached through a wrought iron gate. Steps lead up to a paved, lavender lined pathway and rose filled front garden. The rear garden is of particular note being private, mature and well established with a high degree of privacy and seclusion. An extensive terrace wraps around the back of the property, perfect for al fresco dining. The property benefits from established planting with a number of curved flower beds, which soften the garden by adding texture and colour. Steps lead up to the tiered lawned areas and to a summer house, which has electricity connected, at the top of the garden. The property has the benefit of permit parking (two permits). Visitor permits are also available to purchase.

    I was delighted with how spacious, light and airy the accommodation was throughout the property. Of particular note is the private walled garden and the proximity of the property to the town centre.
