Full description

6a Bicton Place is an elegant grade II listed Georgian townhouse, with some fine period detail, which has been thoughtfully improved and updated, blending contemporary modern features with original timber panelled doors, original fireplaces, incorporating modern day stoves and Georgian casement sash windows with good quality secondary glazing. The accommodation is bright and spacious, complemented by traditional high ceilings and thoughtfully arranged over four floors, with an entrance porch and reception hall at ground floor, which leads to a superb sitting room, with original fireplace and attractive views of Holy Trinity church to the east. The sitting room connects to a formal dining room, again with original fire place, beyond which is a kitchen, fitted with a good quality range of units. The lower ground floor is a particularly versatile space, where there is a further reception room, currently used as a secondary dining room, which alternatively could serve as a large study or games/play room. There is also a large utility/2nd kitchen at lower ground floor level, together with boot room and bathroom and could easily be utilised as a self-contained flat. The principal bedroom, with an en-suite shower, guest bedroom and family bathroom are at first floor, with bedrooms 3 & 4 being on the second floor, from which there are lovely estuary views in a westerly direction. Outside, the gardens are a lovely feature, lying to the west of the building, sheltered and offering a good degree of privacy, which have been thoughtfully planted and landscaped, beyond which is a driveway which provides parking for two cars.
