Full description

With an abundance of period style and features, this large Grade II listed John Douglas designed town house is situated close to the city centre just yards away from Grosvenor Park and offers a fantastic range of accommodation over five floors. Currently there are two main reception rooms, a modern fitted kitchen, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, study or home office and a cellar games room. Many of the rooms have period fireplaces, coving and antique pine doors and large original bays in the living room and main bedroom help to create impressive room proportions. There may also be commercial possibilities for the building such as a small boutique hotel or dental/doctors surgery. Interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries with the relevant authorities. In terms of outside space, there is a small garden at the front which sets the house back from the pavements and a walled rear courtyard allowing room for a patio table and barbecue. There is currently private parking available across the road (by separate arrangement) and nearby free parking on Dee Lane. Viewings are on an accompanied basis only. Please contact us to arrange an appointment.

What The Seller Loves; - "Being so close to the city centre has been a great experience over the past few years, we can pop to the park, nip to the races or wander to the sales and be home within minutes for a cup of tea in front of the fire or a glass of wine on the patio. The house itself is a great size and we never feel as though we are living on top of one another"
