About this property

  • The Hermitage is in an elevated position giving wonderful views over the city and set within its own private walled garden, close to the city centre. The property is the last
    house on the right.

    The property originally dates back to the 1700s, and had a major addition of the first floor in the 1980s to make it the family home it is today.

    The property is has spacious accommodation over two floors with plenty of character and features throughout. The ground floor comprises entrance porch leading to the entrance hall, bedroom with built in wardrobes, family bathroom, kitchen, dining room, conservatory and a study/fourth bedroom. The first floor comprises an impressive reception room with wood burner, vaulted ceilings and excellent views out across the north and east sides of the city landscape. There are two further bedrooms and another family bathroom.

    The house is approached down some steps leading from the garage. The beautiful mature garden is terraced and provides a vegetable garden, fruit trees, herb garden, flower beds and plenty of areas to sit and take in the scenery around you. There is also a courtyard garden leading off from the conservatory which is perfect for al fresco dining. The property is set in about 0.21 acres.

I was particularly impressed by how private this property is given how to close to the city centre it is. The views are also stunning and the reception room is very impressive.
