Description: 51 Britannia Square occupies a fine position on this exclusive and sort after square. Built circa 1820 with later additions and alterations, the residence is particularly attractive featuring painted stucco over brick with a hipped slate roof. A Tuscan porch on non-fluted pillars provides access to the main front door with fanlight over leading into the reception hall featuring original marble tiles to the floor and a charming regency return staircase. Many period details feature throughout the house including high ceilings, some with decorative cornice, deep skirtings, dado rails, original panelled doors, ornate architraves and feature fireplaces whilst large sash windows to the main reception rooms create an exceptionally light ambience. The drawing room features a decorative arch to one wall and an open fireplace with marble surround creating a feeling of grandeur which is carried through to the dining room with its similar fireplace, both rooms also featuring shutters to the windows and ornate ceiling cornices. Further versatility is offered by a study with fitted shelves and feature fireplace whilst a less formal family room set over a slate floor with further feature fireplace is ideal for everyday living. The breakfast kitchen offers a comprehensive range of classic styled painted floor and wall units supplied by Winchmore Kitchens with light coloured granite over and a two oven Aga sitting within its own panelled recess. Neff integral appliances include a single oven, electric hob with extractor over, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and freezer complemented by a Villeroy and Boch sink. Ceramic tiled flooring leads through to the useful utility with space for a washing machine and tumble dryer along with the good size cloakroom. The cellars, useful for storage and including a wine cellar, are accessed from under the stairs which rise to a well-appointed bathroom on a mezzanine level and the landing to the first floor off which three double bedrooms and one single bedroom, all with individual style fireplaces and sash windows, reside supported by a contemporary style shower room. The accommodation to this floor also enjoys exceptional ceiling heights and fine views from the front elevation bedrooms across the garden and square.

A pair of timber gates on stucco pillars open onto a gravelled driveway offering parking for multiple vehicles in front of the single garage. The front garden is mainly laid to manicured lawn with deep beds featuring specimen ornamental trees, shrubs and perennials providing a wealth of colour through the year. A brick courtyard to the rear of the house provides a seating area with pleached trees along the boundary wall whilst a gate gives access to Back Walk at the rear. 51 Britannia Square is a marvellous example of a fine period town residence offering exceptional versatility to provide a beautiful family home.
