About this property

  • The Old Dovecote was converted around 20 years ago and is now a tucked away, modern home within striking distance of the city and local shops and cafes.

    The main living space within the house is at the rear and is made up largely of an open plan kitchen and dining room and spacious sitting room. The kitchen is traditional with cream cabinets and wooden work surfaces, a large range cooker with eight point gas hob and a butlers sink. Just adjacent to the kitchen is a large pantry/larder. The stone floors run through to the dining area which has double doors out to the garden. The sitting room, which was originally converted from the 18th century dovecote, is impressive with large exposed beams, wooden floors and doors out to the garden. The north west facing wall is made up of fully glazed panels in order to maximise light in the space.

    Stairs lead up to the master bedroom which is truly unique and features a vaulted ceiling with an abundance of exposed beams and lovely views over the garden. There is a walk in wardrobe as well as an en suite bath room with free standing bath and separate shower.

    At the front of the house is a double height, vaulted entrance hall. A utility room is tucked away, with ample space for washing machine and drier, has a sink and wall mounted cabinets to maximise storage. The garage is accessed via the entrance hall and while it is currently being used as a gym and pottery studio, it is large enough to house two city cars if needed, in parallel.

    A hallway with Velux windows leads along the northern side of the house and down to the main living area. Off the hallway is the family shower room and two further double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes and views of the inner courtyard. The fourth bedroom, which could also be used as a study is adjacent to the kitchen.

    Outside, the south west facing garden is laid mainly to lawn with a patio area for dining and mature shrubs and plants around the borders. There is a studio which is insulated and has electricity so would make a good home office if needed. There is also a shed.

The Old Dovecote has one of the most impressive and distinctive master bedrooms I have ever seen.
