Description

2 Sandown Terrace is the central house in a handsome early Victorian, Grade II Listed, terrace. In its prominent position with southerly views over the River Dee and The Meadows, it is one of the most prestigious addresses in the city.

At the front entrance to the property is garaging and parking and a large front door below a fan light set within a Roman Doric porch with paired columns. The porch has an attractive Minton tiled floor and a screen with part glazed double doors opening into a reception hall. Internally many elements of the original design remain and the house offers wonderful, elegant accommodation, presented with taste and style. Of particular note are the wonderful high ceilings, ornate corning and large windows and doors in the riverside reception rooms and bedrooms.

On the ground floor is a dining room with a marble fireplace and two further reception rooms on the riverside elevation. These are stunning rooms with pairs of French doors opening onto a delightful ornate cast iron balcony with a spiral staircase leading down to the gardens. The kitchen is situated at the front of the house and has fitted storage units and a Britania cooking range.

An elegant staircase leads to a half landing with a bathroom off
and to a main landing serving the principal bedrooms. Here there
are four bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom. Stairs lead to two attic bedrooms. From a door beside the kitchen steps lead down to the lower ground floor where there are various useful rooms, including a games room, a study, a laundry room, a small kitchen and bathroom. With a separate access to the parking at the front of the house it has previously been used as secondary/staff accommodation. From this level doors also lead onto a south facing terrace beneath the balcony. Great care has
been taken in the design of the delightful gardens, which have been created in an Italianate theme. They are arranged in a series of terraces with generous planting and offer direct river access and mooring.
