Unique town house of historical interest within a popular market town.
Octagon House is an extraordinary home, once forming part of a Georgian jail, housing prisoners during the Napoleonic Wars, it was brought by a builder and converted to its current use in 1880. The now Grade II Listed house is believed to be one of only 3 octagonal residential properties in England.
The current owners bought the house in 1987, and started to create what is a beautifully designed family home. In addition to the fine, principal reception rooms on the ground floor, a garden room was added in 1991, accessed from the kitchen and sitting room and overlooking the back garden.
Over the 1st and 2nd floors are 5 bedrooms, the master bedroom has a dressing room and bathroom, and overlooks the front garden. There is a playroom on the second floor which would make a 6th bedroom if desired.
The property owns part of a lawned garden to the front of the house which has well planted borders and ample parking space. To the side of the house is a single garage and drive offering further parking.
The south facing walled garden has beautifully designed borders, and a terrace accessed from the garden room with steps leading down to the lawn. There is another patio area at the end of the garden, offering sun and shade throughout the day.
