    About this property

    • Situated at the end of a no through lane, Holyrood House is an impressive Victorian property built in 1875, originally St. James College, established for choir boys, eventually converted into four residential properties in the 1990s. No. 3, in the centre, retains high ceilings and fabulous proportions, the drawing and dining rooms in what would have been the school dining hall. Original features include wooden floors, exposed timbers and elegant, tall windows. The kitchen, with stable door, has gas range oven and central work island. There is a utility/boot room and cloakroom also on the ground floor. On the first floor, three double bedrooms enjoy far-reaching views over the garden to the countryside beyond. The principal bedroom has ensuite bathroom and there is a family bathroom. On the second floor are two attic rooms, one currently used for storage and another, with limited access, as home office/bedroom four.

      Outside, delightful, south facing gardens are a testament to the current owner. From vine and wisteria clad pergola providing shaded terrace area, to productive fruit and vegetable gardens. To the front of the property there is an attached double garage with loft storage and off street parking.
