An exceptional mews style property of around 2000 sq. ft. located within a close proximity to the City's amenities. Video tour available.
Austen House dates back to the late 1800's and was formerly a school and the city public reference library. The property was acquired by Beechcroft and resorted to its former glory in 2010 into 12 appealing apartments and this fabulous property which is located to the rear of the building. A perfectly situated mews style house, set back away from the usual fanfare of the City's day to day, the property is approached via secure gated access from the North Walls. The property interior has been superbly appointed and is of an excellent decorative order throughout.
The welcoming entrance hall leads to the spacious well-balanced accommodation across two floors. On the ground floor there is a large and fully fitted kitchen, with a dining and seating area (23 ft), a study, cloakroom and a wonderful drawing/media room (23 ft) with access doors to a private South facing garden courtyard.
The first floor has three bedrooms, two large double bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes and storage cupboards and each with an en suite (one with large walk-in shower and separate bath). The third bedroom has an adjacent further separate shower and laundry room. To complete the first floor, there is a superb additional multi-purpose living space. The Pod', as the Daily Telegraph 2016 best extension national award is affectionately known, has added a new dimension to the house with its full-length windows and lantern rooflight, providing a bright all day long sunny location. Suitable as a home office, hobbies room, a children's room, a very comfortable day room (stairlift access at present) you choose! The property also has means to use a side access as an informal terrace garden overlooked from The Pod and is accessible from the ground floor of the property.
