Why you’ll like it:
On a popular tree lined street close to the Hospital and the sea, this substantial house, built in the late 1870's stands in a terrace of substantial Victorian homes with gracious bay windows and set back from the tree lined street by wide stairs.
Entering the front door a graceful etched glass door sweeps into a long hall with original wide doors, high ceilings and period features, subtly mixed with contemporary features such as the led lighting sunk into the staircase with a burnished wooden banister rising in front of you. A door on your left opens into a formal dining room with a delicate ceiling rose and beautiful garlands wending their way around the room above your head. To your left, painted doors concertina open to reveal the elegant reception room where there is a handsome grey marble open fireplace and a generously wide bay window gazes both west and down to the sea.
Along the hallway, past vast under stair storage and a smart guest cloakroom, you emerge into an immaculate kitchen gleaming with porcelain and light pouring through the far wall which is floor to ceiling glass and where the current owners have placed a table to make the most of the views over the imaginatively planted garden. There are plenty of glistening white units in this large space, with white moulded work surfaces giving a polished finish. All of the appliances are of high quality and are integrated, including the sleek NEFF gas hob beneath an attractive square extractor.
The first floor half landing has the large family bathroom with a glamorous free standing claw footed bath as well as a separate shower lined in glimmering tile. The heated towel rail and elliptical hand basin resting on dark wood add to the spa like feel. Next door, a large cupboard doubles as a utility room, nicely close to the rooms from which you collect and return sheets and clothes!
The first of the peaceful double bedrooms is at the rear of the house on the first floor. At the front of the house is a spectacular bedroom, with the restful proportions so typical of the late Victorian era. There is a majestic marble fireplace to your right and ahead, a dignified large bay window, which reaches almost from the floor to the ceiling, is near to a further tall sash window gazing across the tree lined terrace. The room is exceptionally quiet due to the acoustic glass which is actually fitted in both of the front bedrooms. Light simply pours into this lovely room and above your head romantic plaster roses twine, and fruit jostles for position in the original ceiling rose.
The third tranquil double bedroom is at the back of the house on the second floor, and has an original fireplace and a fitted wardrobe, and the fourth, serene bedroom is at the front, with the same graceful bay and sash window as the floor beneath, which with the high ceilings, floor to ceiling wardrobes and white painted fireplace just feels so soothing!
Outside, the garden is reached down a short staircase, and is paved with ample room for a dining set, with swaying palms, mature trees and scented climbers making it private. Were the lower ground floor to be incorporated into the house, the courtyard and garden would be joined together by wide limestone steps which would also double as seating, the present kitchen becoming a garden room/library with matching wide steps down to the main garden.
The lower ground floor is currently let as a spacious one bedroom apartment with its own private entrance and rear courtyard.
Bear in mind:
Access to the attic space is above your head on the second floor where several houses in this road have added windows to create another room. Plans were also made concerning the conversion of the basement into a stylish kitchen/diner for the main house and building onto the flat roof by the stain glass window leading to the second floor, creating a 5th bedroom and 2nd bathroom.
