Property Description

Full description

One of the most distinct and fascinating, detached properties that exists within the Town today and one that has been cherished by its owners for many, many years. Built within Victorian times and named after the man who was responsible for its design and creation, ‘Scott House’ is full of elegance and individuality and boasts a generous level of accommodation that has been added to over the years. Entering through the large double doors, an inviting entrance hall is illuminated and filled with a vibrancy of colour by the large stained glass windows that fill this both this area along with the open landing above. Leading from here is an inner sitting room along with two formal front rooms one of which extends into  a bay window to the side and opens on to the gardens at the rear. A 21ft kitchen extends along the back leading to a breakfast/dining area which enjoys the privacy of the outside space via large patio doors and upstairs, there are 4 well-proportioned bedrooms some of which benefit from adjoining bathrooms. However, it is more than just the living space that can be accessed from inside the house; Within its original design, a Tower was incorporated to the rear reminiscent of the Town Clock that Mr Scott’s brother had donated and which still stands on the Market square today. The top of this structure with its bold turrets and arched windows can still be accessed from the attic and provides a magnificent, fun platform on which to survey the surrounding areas. The gardens in themselves provide a traditional, sizeable, private area to really compliment this home further and are filled with mature shrubbery, seating areas and paths as well as retaining the original Victorian ironwork of the veranda to the rear. The practicalities of generous levels of parking and garaging also exist and yet all of the amenities of the Town along with the convenience of the railway station are all only a short walk away. This intriguing property, although at a stage where many internal improvements could be made, is offered for sale as a genuinely loved, comfortable home, now ready for a new occupier to continue its legacy.
