An impressive late Victorian character residence enjoying a very convenient central location. The house was, we understand, built in the late 19th Century, and has appealing elevations of mellow brickwork under a slate roof. The elevations are enhanced by original features including decorative barge boards to the front gable, sash windows with bays to front and side, and glazed casement doors to the terrace and former balcony on the landing. Internally the house retains many original features including the impressive staircase, superb fire surrounds, cornices and ceiling roses, doors, architraves and skirting boards. The vestibule has an encaustic tiled floor, and several rooms feature ornate cast iron radiators.
The flexible accommodation, which is on three floors, could be arranged in many different permutations to suit a purchaser's own needs. The house has the benefit of gas fired central heating, modern kitchen and bathroom fittings, and two of the bath/ shower rooms are en suite. Far reaching views can be obtained from the 2nd floor bedroom.

High electric gates and a shingle driveway with turning circle and parking area lead to the detached Double garage, built in keeping with the house and having twin electrically operated doors. The driveway and central island are planted with many mature shrubs. Steps lead to the front door, with decorative box hedging parterres on either side. There is a shingle terrace at the front adjacent to the doors from the drawing room, and this extends around the side where the major part of the garden is located. The house enjoys a unique secluded setting in gardens of about 0.5 acres. A large lawn with a further area of shingle terrace is surrounded by established shrubs and trees providing a superb backdrop. At the rear of the house is a paved courtyard area with a small heated swimming pool and hot tub set into a raised deck surround. There is a useful detached brick and slate Studio/ garden room with French doors to the courtyard, shower and cloakroom, ideal for use with the pool, or as guest accommodation. There are two store rooms and a pool plant room.

Square Footage: 3,415 sq ft
Acreage: 0.53 Acres
