An elegant grade II listed Regency villa on the prestigious Castelnau
This elegant Regency style villa, built in 1842, is Grade II listed and is one of a row of similar houses, but is exceptional in that many of the original features have been carefully preserved,
including cornicing, doors, shutters and fireplaces.
The house is set back from the road with a gravel drive which provides parking for several cars. The owners have made improvements to adapt it to modern living, notably by integrating the coach house and converting it to provide additional accommodation and reception space. The property is arranged over four floors. Stone steps lead up to the double front door with the original arched portico.
Raised Ground Floor: Entrance hall with remodelled staircase rising to the first floor. The front reception room has a feature fireplace with marble surround, ceiling cornicing, picture
rail, period skirting boards sash window with shutters and exposed floorboards. The rear reception room spans the width of the original house and retains the feature fireplace, ceiling
cornicing and two sets of French windows with shutters leading out to a slate balcony with wrought iron balustrade and stairs down to the garden. From here two steps lead into an
additional reception room with built in shelving and cupboards and large sash windows overlooking the garden. There is also a study to the front of the house with an ornate roof lantern.
Lower Ground Floor: From the first floor, the additional staircase leads down to kitchen with tiled floor, a range of wall and floor mounted units with granite preparation surface over and a stable door out to the garden. Steps lead down to the reception room with part wood clad walls up to dado rail and double French doors with shutters to the garden. Further
accommodation to this floor includes utility room, bedroom, bathroom, cloakroom and garage.
First Floor: From the raised ground floor the remodelled staircase leads up to three double bedrooms, two with en suite bath/shower rooms and a single bedroom.
Second Floor: The original turned staircase leads up to the top floor where there are two further double bedrooms, a separate bathroom, a shower room and a cloakroom.
Outside: The garden is mainly laid to lawn with herbaceous boarders, a magnificent Cedar tree and a large patio.
