Full description

A fine example of a Victorian townhouse. This lovely home is beautifully presented. The accommodation is set over four floors. The ceilings are high, the rooms are well proportioned and all the retained period features add that touch of character that we expect to see with a property of this age and yet there is a contemporary touch, which creates a fusion between old and new needed for today's lifestyle.
Portland Street is a pretty residential street located just outside the City walls and provides Minster views from the upper floors. The accommodation in brief: reception hallway, a formal sitting room, a great fitted breakfast kitchen and dining room/utility. The basement provides the family room/TV room/Den and there is a cloakroom too. The upper two floors offer four bedrooms and generous house bathroom. To the rear is a pretty, south facing, walled courtyard garden and a SINGLE GARAGE, which is a rare find for a property so close to the City.
