About this property

  • Bourne House was originally built around 1898 affording splendid town house living typical of the St. Cross area. In the 1980's the property was then converted into three individual apartments, Top Bourne being on the second floor offering a spectacular ‘penthouse' outlook across the gardens of St. Cross and St. Catherines Hill beyond. The property and its three apartments share the long private driveway, that passes the individual private gardens, to a courtyard area of parking, whereby there is an individual parking space allocated to this property. Top Bourne is accessed via an external staircase to its front door.

    From a welcoming and particularly spacious entrance reception hall, doors lead to a variety of storage and to the following rooms: a kitchen/breakfast room; living room; principal bedroom, guest bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen has been refitted with a comprehensive range of units and a full integration of appliances more commonly found in a larger family home, which then has a separate utility area too. The bathroom has also seen a significant refit and has been enlarged. There are some lovely views to be had from each of the rooms, however the living room has a delightful window seat to take in the Southerly aspect and panorama of St. Cross and St. Catherines Hill. The living room also has a cosy feature of a wood burning stove.
