About this property

  • Description

    47 Rivers Street is a handsome Georgian townhouse circa 1776 and is attributed to the architect John Wood the Younger. A bold and attractive pedimented door surround and ashlar façade, has large sash windows complete with glazing bars. The delightful interior is enhanced by the rich architectural details of chimneypieces, wide panelled doors and in particular the elaborate ceilings of the drawing room and dining room in the Adam style. The current owners have enhanced the property considerably and it now provides versatile and stylish accommodation over five floors.

    The property is entered into an excellent size and welcoming hallway. The traditional arrangement of two reception rooms on both the ground and first floors remains and a French door from the dining room opens onto the garden.

    There is a well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room on the lower floor with access to a rear courtyard with useful vault/wine cellar as well as access to the rear garden. To the front is an excellent size dining/sitting room currently used as a home office. There is access to the front vaults and to the street.

    The second floor comprises the master bedroom with an en suite bathroom and a further spacious double bedroom. The third floor has three bedrooms and a family bathroom.

    The south facing rear garden is walled which provides privacy and is predominantly paved for easy maintenance.
