Full description

The Keep is a substantial Queen Anne House built of brick elevation with Bath stone quoins, situated in the town's historic conservation area, with the town centre a short walk away. This stunning house is beautifully presented and retains original character throughout. The accommodation is arranged over three floors and provides ample space for a family home with rooms for working from home, hobbies etc.

The Accommodation
The accommodation is arranged over three floors and original features are retained throughout. On the ground floor there is an impressive entrance hall, with flagstone floors, a Georgian central archway and a fine cantilevered staircase. On either side of the hallway are the two reception rooms, each with two windows with shutters onto Castle Street, and open fireplaces. The reception room on the left hand side has very fine wall panelling. Also leading off the hallway is a second hall leading out onto Trinity Street, the study, also with flagstone floors and shuttered windows is off this hallway, as is the downstairs W/C. The kitchen/dining room overlooks the garden and has a range of hand painted units with granite work surfaces over. There is an Aga, finished in green and a Baumatic cooker and hob for summer use. To one side is the walk-in pantry with services for fridge, dishwasher etc and to the rear a spacious and well appointed utility room. The double garage, with two electrically operated up-and-over doors, is accessed from the utility room.

On the first floor there is a large studio/workshop, very light and spacious with a balcony off overlooking the garden to one side. This room is ideal for hobby use, or perhaps, working from home. Also on this floor there is the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and dressing room. The bathroom is exceptionally well appointed with large walk-in shower and white suite. There are two further bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite, and a family bathroom.

The second floor provides a large landing, two attic bedrooms and a third room to one side. The two main rooms enjoy rooftop views over the town and onto Cley Hill.

The garden lies to one side and is fully enclosed by stone walls. The garden has been carefully laid out over several levels and includes a patio area, an ornamental pond with water feature, raised stone beds and numerous mature shrubs and bushes. There is a gate onto Castle Street and an outside sink with tap. There is additional outside storage and a garden shed (power and light). Also in the grounds is a former Air Raid Shelter, currently in need of excavation.
