Property Description

Full description

*TOWNHOUSE WITH GARAGE* A unique 3-bedroom house in need of some updating, situated within the medieval grid.

Situated in this prime position within the medieval grid, 52 Whiting Street is an exceptional individual house, steeped in character and built of traditional construction in the 1960s, upon the grounds of two dilapidated cottages, by reputable local craftsmen Warren Builders, at the time for the builder as his primary home.

The property was meticulously built using traditional materials acquired in exchange at the local timber yard with the ‘leftovers’ following the demolition of the cottages, and together with traditional methods employed in the construction, they managed to create a fine house which gives the impression of being an original medieval house, but in fact is no more than sixty years old.

The principal accommodation is arranged over three floors, plus a cellar, and comprises reception hall with attractive staircase and parquet flooring, a sitting room with bay window to the front with stained glass inserts, red-brick fireplace flanked by original abbey stone, bressummer beam and glazed doors leading to the garden/dining room, being mono-pitched, with glazed roof, fitted blinds and doors to the gardens, a cloakroom and kitchen/breakfast room with a range of base and eye-level units with inset stainless steel sink.

On the first floor is a landing area with window to the rear aspect, a lovely double-aspect master bedroom, bedroom 2, shower room and staircase leading up to the second floor with further double bedroom and bathroom.

The property enjoys a private enclosed courtyard, being walled, with small storage cupboard, and a garage, situated in College Street near to the Guildhall Feoffment School, in a block with a number of other privately owned garages.
