About this property

  • 17 Wellington Square is a beautiful semi detached Grade II listed town house found on one of the most sought after squares in Pittville, close to the town centre and Pittville Park.

    Requiring general modernisation and updating, the house enjoys very spacious accommodation arranged over three floors, with the lower ground floor comprising a separate two bedroom apartment accessed by a private entrance door on the side.

    The lower ground floor apartment features unusually high ceiling heights and with large windows to the front and rear elevations, particularly from the sitting room, the floor feels surprisingly light and airy. The existing staircase remains in place, boxed in, which would allow for the apartment to be reincorporated back in to one house if desired, subject to any necessary consents and permissions. Further accommodation includes a sitting room, kitchen/dining room, bathroom and wide hallway.

    On the raised ground floor, the superb sitting room is a lovely room, with twin windows overlooking the square at the front, original cornice, ceiling rose, picture rail and fireplace. At the rear of the house, overlooking the garden, is the dining room, also featuring twin windows, cornice, ceiling rose and picture rail. A door leads to the kitchen, and onwards to the cloakroom and the compact conservatory, beyond which is the garden.

    Leading from the ground floor to the first floor is a magnificent cantilevered stone staircase with an original wooden balustrade which is set off by a cupola that provides a flood of natural light.

    On the first floor are four double bedrooms accessed from the landing. The main bedroom has twin windows across the square and access to the bathroom, also accessed from the landing. The main guest bedroom, also with two windows, features an en suite shower room.

    Throughout the house there are wonderful character features including doors, door furniture and skirting boards, as well as cornices and ceiling roses, fireplaces and picture rails.

    Outside to the front, wrought iron railings and a pedestrian gate provide access to the house, with an imposing stone staircase to the main entrance door. Additional access is provided by a gate at the side to the rear garden. Facing south, the rear is bathed in sunshine for most of the day, laid to lawn and interspersed with plants and shrubs. At the end of the garden is a detached garage accessed from the rear service road, to the side of which is a private patio area under a pergola with mature planting.

Wellington Square is my favourite of the gorgeous authentic squares around the town, and number 17 is certainly one of the prettiest houses.

Local information
