A handsome 4/5 bedroom, 3 storey Victorian house that was once part of a larger property, built with rendered elevations beneath a slate tile roof in approximately 1870 and divided to create 2 properties in 1900, standing in this favoured no through road on the eastern side of town within a 5 minute walk of the mainline railway station.
The current owners have lived in the property since 2003 and the light and airy accommodation is now presented in very good decorative order throughout having recently been redecorated. Although now modernised, a host of original features typical of the era remain to include numerous open fireplaces, sash windows, panelled doors and stripped pine floors to all rooms on the first 2 floors.
The accommodation includes an enclosed porch, an entrance hall with stairs to the first floor and a cloakroom leading off it. The dual aspect sitting room with a cast iron fireplace overlooks the rear garden and the dining room with open fireplace and a full height sash window overlooks the front garden. The re-fitted kitchen/breakfast room features cream hand built cupboards complimented by wooden worksurfaces with an inset butlers sink, a central island with seating, space for a range style cooker and double doors to the rear garden.
There is a generous landing with a sash window to the front and stairs to the 2nd floor. There are 3 double bedrooms (2 with far reaching views), a bathroom fitted to a Victorian style with a free standing cast iron bath and a separate shower room with WC. A staircase leads to a family room/bedroom 5 with access through to a further bedroom (both of which have far reaching views).
Outside: A pillared entrance gives access to a block paved driveway flanked by lawn, leading to the 31’ x 7’10 double length garage. There is side gate to the 88’ x 44’ north facing rear garden and stairs with attractive stone balustrade lead to the full width flagstone patio providing a generous seating/entertaining area with steps down to the 16’ x 14’ (5’7 standing height) CELLAR (this could be converted to provide further accommodation if required). Steps lead to the remainder of the garden which is laid to level lawn flanked by flower and shrub borders, mainly enclosed by laurel hedging.
The property benefits from gas fired central heating (the boiler, new in 2017, is located in the cellar) and some sealed unit double glazed windows.
