About this property

  • The sale of 12 Gravel Lane represents a rare opportunity to acquire a 4 double bedroom 2 bathroom Victorian home close to the town centre amenities. Dating from 1868, this timelessly attractive property exudes charm and character inside and out, retaining many of its original period features including fireplaces, ceiling cornices, panelled doors and decorative leaded stained glass.

    The deceptively spacious accommodation is arranged over four floors and extends to over 1,700 Sq Ft in total. Whilst the property is well maintained and decorated to a high standard, there is tremendous potential for extension and upgrading (subject to the relevant consents) with a precedent already set by the adjoining properties to either side. Worthy of particular note is the cellar with good head height offering useful storage and potential for conversion.

    The property is entered through the original front door with decorative leaded stained glass into a spacious hallway. Immediate off to the left of the hall is the bay fronted living room with period fireplace with green slate hearth and inset, fitted shelving and storage to the chimney breast alcove. Also off the hall is a generously proportioned second reception room which is currently set up as a dining room, again with open fire and fitted storage to the chimney breast alcove. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a fitted kitchen with original quarry tiled flooring which in turn leads through to a rear hall allowing access onto the gardens.

    To the first floor there is a family bathroom with shower over bath and are two spacious double bedrooms both with original fireplaces and fitted wardrobes. To the second floor there are two further double bedrooms. Bedroom three benefits from en suite shower room facilities and elevated far reaching gardens views towards to the rear.

    To the front of the property there is a York stone paved area which would allow for off road parking of a small car or motorbike. There is on street parking nearby on Gravel Lane. To the rear there are delightful fully enclosed gardens which enjoy a high degree of privacy. The gardens have been landscaped to provide low maintenance and are mainly laid to flagstone paving with raised beds and established hedging to the rear boundary.

    Viewing is essential to fully appreciate the character and tremendous potential this period home has to offer.
