Property Description

Full description

Tucked away in a secluded spot in Churchtown lies a piece of local history. This Grade II listed building was built and owned by local Architect George Henderson and has been restored to retain many of the property's original character. The wash room or 'pump room' as it was once known, has now been reinvented as a compact utility room. The original staff quarters have been transformed into a kitchen and the former parlour has become a traditional study. The property boasts many unique features inkeeping with the character of the house; such as the use of Walnut and Oak throughout, and a coat of arms on the ceiling in the lounge - placed there by Mr Henderson. The lounge also displays a hand carved Oak fire surround and an equally impressive stone fire surround in the dining room. The Oak staircase is distinctive with hand carved Cherubs and provides a unique feature in the hallway. The three bedrooms located on the first floor all benefit from south facing windows.
Whilst retaining its charm, the property has been modernised to include a Bang and Olufson sound system and a state of the art bathroom fitting by Philipe Stark. In order to appreciate the attention to detail given to the property, we encourage interested parties to arrange a viewing, so that they can see for themselves the time and care spent during the restoration process.
