All change - once a bank, now an exquisite family house
Lot 1/ 6 High Street (as shown shaded blue on floor plan) A charming Grade II Listed mid-terraced town house of brick
construction under a slate roof. Formerly occupied by HSBC Bank, the property has been comprehensively refurbished and modernised throughout providing the incoming purchaser with all the benefits of modern day living amongst the property's age and charm.
The careful restoration has retained a wealth of period features including open fireplaces, exposed timbers, sash windows, exposed floorboards, 4-panel internal pine doors, built-in wardrobes and storage cupboards. The improvement works include complete re-roofing, re-wiring, replumbing, a bespoke handmade kitchen, modern bathrooms with white suites, a useful single storey extension to rear, part double glazing, some new internal doors, floor coverings, hard landscaping and landscaped gardens. Due to its age and architecture the property offers elegantly proportioned rooms with generous ceiling heights, all giving a tremendous feeling of space and light.
