3 bedroom semi-detached house for sale


Sold STC £249,995

Property Description

Full description

An extremely distinctive and exceptionally rare 3 double bedroom property which has undergone a programme of renovations and improvements over the last few years. This is probably one of the most centrally positioned and sizeable Victorian houses that exists within the Town, which along with the advantages of being only a short walk to either the shops or the railway, brings with it plentiful levels of parking and garden. Originally built in 1837 the property had the bay windows and date stone added to the front in the Golden Jubilee year of Queen Victoria in 1887, the date stone still remains on the front bay window with a distinct, embossed portrait of the Queen herself. Over 170 years later, the current owners acquired the property after it had fallen into a poor state of repair and have poured huge levels of time, care and love into both the inside and out restoring it back to a fully functioning home. There is a mixture of fresh, modern styling throughout along with a traditional finish in other
places and where possible, original features have been left. The open hallway still retains the original chequered flooring which looks stunning. There is still the original cast iron fireplace in the main bedroom and a stunning feature fireplace in the lounge.
Accommodation wise, there are two front reception rooms (comprising a sitting room that extends to almost 14ft and a dining room that measures over 19ft) along with a completely refitted, 17ft kitchen/breakfast room, and a downstairs cloakroom.
Upstairs, the bedrooms are quite equally proportioned and the bathroom is also a sizeable room housing both shower and bath and finished to a contemporary standard. This really is an impressive and enviable period property and early viewing is essential.
