Full description

An attractive and most interesting Grade II Listed Georgian town house of great charm and character with well proportioned internal accommodation and excellent gardens in a convenient location close to the centre of the North Shropshire Lakeland town of Ellesmere.

Description - Halls are favoured with instructions to offer Talbot House, in Ellesmere, for sale by private treaty.

An attractive and most interesting Grade II Listed Georgian town house of great charm and character with well proportioned internal accommodation and excellent gardens in a convenient location close to the centre of the North Shropshire Lakeland town of Ellesmere.

The property, which is set over three floors, offers deceptively spacious internal accommodation of immense charm and character with a number of original features still in place. The property still, however, has great potential for further improvement providing a purchaser with the opportunity to "finish off" according to one's individual tastes and preferences.

At present, the extensive internal accommodation comprises a ground floor Reception Hall, Lounge, Kitchen, Dining Room, Rear Hallway and Study, together with two first floor Bedrooms and Family Bathroom and a further three Bedrooms on the second floor. The property has the benefit of a gas fired central heating system and is presented for sale with the fitted carpets included in the purchase price.

Outside, the property is approached off the Council maintained road over a private drive leading to a parking area, garage and further outhouses.

The garden is particularly worthy of note and is situated a short distance to the rear of the house and is extremely private, predominantly laid to lawn with mature wall and hedge boundaries. The gardens, also, have immense potential for landscaping according to one's individual wishes.

The sale of Talbot House, does, therefore, provide a very unusual opportunity to purchase such an interesting Grade II Listed Georgian town house of such charm and character with potential to adapt to one's individual tastes and preferences with gardens, in such a convenient town centre location. An inspection of the property is highly recommended.
