Tenure: FreeholdA beautiful and substantial Grade II listed, semi detached Victorian house, arranged over 4 floors and occupying one of the most enviable locations on the edge of Clifton village as well as one of Clifton's most prestigious addresses. Providing elegant accommodation on a grand scale, the house has truly outstanding principal rooms and a wealth of fascinating period detail.
The main house consists of 2 large reception rooms and 7 double bedrooms with three bathrooms; a utility room; a study; a large store room and kitchen. The kitchen has been fitted with modern appliances and opens through to the drawing room, while the original French doors give access to a sunny balcony that overlooks the garden. The drawing room features a rear wall of custom-built, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves with a sliding ladder giving easy access to oneís library. With impressive floor-to-ceiling multi-paned sash windows with working shutters; period fireplaces; elaborate ceiling cornices and mouldings; arched doorways and wooden floors, the main reception rooms are a joy to be in. The entrance porch (recently rebuilt), reception hallway, cast iron and mahogany staircase and duel landing with its great stone mullion and transom window are all equally impressive features of this wonderful house.
In addition, the house benefits from a large unconverted basement, which retains its original external access. This floor could either be integrated into the main house or converted into a separate luxury apartment that could be let out to provide additional income or provide convenient living space for relatives.
Although the present owners have had the roof replaced five years ago and the property rewired, installed two modern gas boilers and a solar powered energy system (which heats all the water for the house), there are still areas in need of upgrading or redecorating to improve and further enhance this fabulous property. There are so many special elements to the property to delight any purchaser looking for an authentic, well preserved, Victorian townhouse.
All in all, this remarkable house will give the buyer traditional English architecture offering practicality and the flexibility to accommodate staff or relatives. It will appeal to those seeking both a well placed, centrally located home for a family and a property with exceptional architectural merit and historic significance.
