Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This maisonette is beautifully located in the heart of town, yet tucked away in a secluded corner of Elm Yard, to such an extent that I struggled to find it! Most of the basics are here but need upgrading, like the old fashioned gas central heating system, kitchen, bathroom etc. There is plenty of character remaining and the cottage offers a wonderful quirky feel.

There is a range of wall mounted cupboards, with a further cupboard under the sink.

Sitting Room: 15'4 x 10'1 min between staircase and chimney breast The sitting room has a window to the front onto Elm Yard, with a uPVC double glazed window to the rear. There is a radiator, television point and an attractive period style fireplace with a marble mantle and an inset electric fire. This room has a telephone point and from here the staircase rises to the first floor, with a panelled side which could become a wonderful feature. In the back corner of this room, beneath the stairs, a door leads through to…

Study/Bedroom 3: Irregularly shaped 15'7 at mid-point x 5'7 max 5'0 min This useful additional room has a uPVC double glazed window to the rear, a radiator, access to the under stairs cupboard, with a fabulous old door with some marvelous hinges and part-panelled walls.
