About this property

  • Snailgate House is a fine Grade II listed townhouse with handsome Georgian façade of solid brick construction under a tiled roof.

    The house dates back to the 18th century with Georgian façade and has a pretty courtyard garden to the rear of the house with a covered parking space.

    We understand that the property was originally built as a merchant's house and then became offices with living accommodation above and had workshops within the curtilage of the building. The property then fell into disrepair and was restored including the workshops and adjoining buildings into full residential accommodation with vehicular access via St. Georges Street.

    The present owners have lived in the property for approximately 11 years and have carried out considerable re- decoration and improvement programmes including a new kitchen, creating an adjoining shower room off the principal bedroom and installed a new bathroom on the top floor. The principal bedroom also benefits from having a balcony overlooking the courtyard garden. As can be seen from the floor plans the property offers a good degree of flexibility within its accommodation which also includes a cellar.

    There is mains gas heating to radiators and the well- proportioned rooms have good ceiling heights and enjoy a bright and airy atmosphere.

    The property is situated on Calvert Street with a courtyard style garden to the rear of the house with gate leading out to the covered parking space.

This beautiful home is located in the city centre yet it is tucked away on a quiet street. I was most impressed with the period features and the high ceilings.
