Grade II listed townhouse.
No. 25 has a story dating back to the medieval era. The apex of a dwelling from that time is still visible in the sitting room, as is stonework in the base of the well, now lit, forming a fascinating feature in the kitchen. The present house dates to the C17th with later additions, mostly Georgian, making up the delightful home it is today. The original stone flagged hallway leads straight through to the welcoming kitchen/ breakfast room with French doors to the west facing garden.
A lantern roof light provides the room with natural light. Painted wooden units, a central island with wood and granite worktops, Belfast sink and Smeg gas range make up the working end of the kitchen. There is also a cloakroom. The enchanting sitting room has a large open fireplace, elm floorboards and beams, and looks out to the front of the property. Stairs from the hall lead down to the oldest part of the house now providing a generous sized study with evidence of the original bread oven.
A delightful custom built oak staircase winds from the hall to a galleried landing offering two bedrooms, both with cast iron fireplaces, and a family bathroom with shower. From the end of the landing, stairs wind again to the main bedroom and en suite shower room with old A-frame beams visible, wide elm floorboards and a fireplace. The fourth bedroom is also on the second floor and could double as a dressing room.
Outside, the walls enclosing the private garden recount its history. At the base of one is the top of an arch dating back to earlier settlements in the street. The garden comprises a stone slabbed terrace, small lawn, mature shrubs and a garden shed.
Services: All mains services are connected. Gas-fired central heating.
