Why you’ll like it:
Head and heart will fall for this endearing period cottage in a great spot by the station and right by the North Lines. Reached through a leafy garden large enough to dine in, the sheltering porch is topped by a unique, rounded fan light and leads to the smart front door. Inside does not disappoint with a light filled living room, where the east facing bow window makes up much of the front wall and there is a big sash window in the far wall as well. A wooden fire place matches the natural flooring and shelving, giving a pared back and cohesive feel to a well- proportioned room which is large enough for both sofas and a dining table.
Past under stair storage, the door in the far wall opens into a streamlined kitchen which has double doors to your left leading out to a central glass roofed conservatory, ideal for a bistro table and chairs, so you can plan your weekend together beneath the stars as the supper cooks. The contemporary kitchen has plenty of units with gleaming work surfaces, the gas hob and electric oven are integrated beneath an extractor and two levels of lighting means you can choose your mood.
At the far end of the house, the luxury bathroom is convenient for guests and has a shower above the bath and natural light.
Upstairs, the restful master bedroom has fitted wardrobes already in place and gazes over the quiet, pedestrian twitten to what is now a post office but which used to be the famous Regency Iron and Brass Foundry, (1823) producing most of the delicate wrought iron work seen in the Regency city, and for which these houses with their market garden would provide food and possibly lodgings for the workers. At the back of the house, the guest bedroom is approximately 2.62m x 2.51 and would make a very nice study too, especially as it has a door leading out to a fabulous roof terrace, facing west for the afternoon sunshine.
Bear in mind:
You can walk to the shops, clubs, restaurants, theatres beach and the station from this house.
