    About this property

    • Martin House is an attractive period property with accommodation set out over three floors. The property has been let on a long term tenancy for a number of years and is offered with vacant possession.

      The front door opens into a reception room with flagstone floor and fireplace housing a gas stove. There is a bay window overlooking Sheep Street to the front. At the centre of the house is a second reception room, also with a gas stove, from which a staircase rises to the first floor. A door leads to a useful office/store room with double doors opening on to the courtyard garden. At the rear is the kitchen/breakfast room, again with double doors leading to the garden. There are a range of units with integrated oven and Bosch dishwasher. The ground floor layout is flexible and can be configured to suit.

      On the first floor is a sitting room with an open fire. The sitting room is charming and could be converted to a third bedroom. An enclosed staircase provides access to bedroom two on the second floor. A door from the sitting room leads to a landing off which is the family bathroom and family shower room. The principal bedroom is well-proportioned and has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams. There are glazed double doors which open to a balcony with views across neighbouring rooftops.

      There is a very useful tanked cellar which is accessed from inside the property. To the rear of the property is an enclosed south facing courtyard garden. A spiral staircase leads from the courtyard to the principal bedroom. The passageway adjoining the western boundary is owned by Martin House. Occupiers of properties accessed via the passageway have a right of way over the passageway.
