An elegant and substantial Victorian townhouse with the advantage of a garage, superbly situated in a favoured row of attractive period homes close to the city centre. Offering a superb balance of period features and modern touches, the property is arranged over three floors and extends to over 2000 sq ft. The layout and design is representative of the many fine townhouses built on the peripheries of the city during this era, and provides flexible and extensive accommodation.
Internally, there are a great number of period architectural features that include ornate fireplaces, timber sash windows, moulded plasterwork, cornices and arches, door-cases with architraves and deep skirting boards to many of the rooms. The beautiful entrance hallway provides access to the principal reception rooms including the bay fronted lounge and similarly sized family room with access to the garden, both bathed in natural light. To the rear elevation is the large dining kitchen with multi-fuel stove and conservatory. The sociable kitchen features a full range of fitted wall and base units with worktops over, space for appliances and central island.
A grand staircase leads to the first floor and three well-proportioned double bedrooms and house bathroom. The second floor houses two further double bedrooms served by a shower room.
Externally, the property sits behind attractive wrought iron railings and gate and has useful access to the side. The rear courtyard garden offers remarkable privacy and greenery for the city centre. The property has the rare benefit of a substantial single garage located close by (forming part of a row of original coach houses). Beyond the timber doors is a further mezzanine level. In summary, an impressive and substantial home boasting period charm and character, just moments from the bustle of the city.
