Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This is a unique and once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a period Victorian/Edwardian stone terrace, having been lovingly transformed by the present owners back in time to a bye gone era, restoring the features and all the character that this fine property once had when first built.  Briefly we have all working fires to some rooms, gas lighting has been put in place to the property, (does of course have electric lighting as well), all the original sash windows have been restored and are all in working order with new parts, an original cast iron range has been unearthed and restored to its former glory, and 90% of the property has been decorated with Farrow and Ball craftsman paints. I cannot over emphasise the importance of appreciating this fine unique home. Should you be a buyer looking for your perfect terrace property, then look no further because here we have your dream home. The property was first started to be built in 1901 and extended into 1902 and was constructed by Obanks of Thackley, fine builders of many period Edwardian properties in and around Thackley/Idle. It is situated in a row of terrace properties known as "Corona Terrace" with an open aspect onto a field across the road. Since being built it has had only a handful of previous owners, but by far of importance is the present owner, who has created and left a legacy for the next custodian, who should appreciate all its finest offerings.
