This Edwardian townhouse has immense character and stature, with an abundance of period features that continually draw your interest. It offers a huge amount of space over three floors with the benefit of a garage/home office to the rear, and additional loft space.

It is clear to see that the house has been much loved and cared for, an impression immediately confirmed when passing through the stained glass front door into the wide hallway with its exposed floorboards and decorative archway.

With careful consideration, the owners have seamlessly blended the period style with modern convenience:

The kitchen/breakfast room has an open plan feel that appeals to contemporary lifestyles. The spacious utility room is finished with the same range of cupboards and has a large, shelved airing cupboard. A cloakroom sits between the two.

Two reception rooms are separated by folding double doors with the living room at the front of the house; exposed floorboards link through into the dining room at the rear. Coupled with the high ceilings, a bay window to the front and glass doors to the rear bring in plenty of natural light. Tiled slate and cast iron open fireplaces in each room are believed to be original.

There are two double bedrooms and one large single on the first floor, with the largest having an en-suite shower room and built-in wardrobe. The main bathroom is on this level and has a period style suite with decorative tiling, with a roll top bath.

The top floor has a flexible layout that might suit a guest suite or teenage zone, (on the way up there is a delightful half landing with a galleried view down to the first floor). The bedroom has a period cast iron fireplace, and a WC discretely tucked away in one corner with a wash hand basin. The adjoining room, currently used as a second office by the owners, could serve as a dressing room or be divided completely into a fifth bedroom.

Heading outside, the rear garden is surprisingly private for a town centre location and has split level decking with mature hedging and shrubs, and a tidy lawn. The garage is at the end of the garden and has been partitioned to provide a self- contained office ideal for home working.
