Full description

1 Duke Street is an ideally located townhouse; peacefully located on Duke Street yet only a stones throw away from the High Street and all local amenities. The accommodation throughout is surprisingly spacious with many original period features such as large sash and case windows, decorative cornicing and original fireplaces.

In addition there is the benefit of a large basement which has light and power as well as a shared cobbled courtyard to the rear.
