Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Nestled in the highly regarded and convenient city centre location of St Johns, Wentworth Terrace consists of many interesting period homes and buildings; number 9 is no exception. Offering deceptively spacious accommodation, this five bedroom, four storey town house dating back to the mid 19th century still incorporates many of the original features typical of the character and period of the property.

As you enter the home you are greeted with the most imposing and impressive stone cantilevered wrought iron spindle staircase which leads to an elegant landing with stained glass feature skylight. The ground floor comprises an impressive living room with attractive marble feature fireplace, separate dining room with an equally grand fireplace, downstairs w.c. and modern fitted kitchen. There is access to the old servants' staircase and to the rear garden via an inner hallway. The first floor can be reached from either staircase and, off the main landing, there is access to three good size double bedrooms and a bathroom with shower and w.c., which can be used en suite with the master bedroom. Access to the second floor is via the servants' staircase with a further two double bedrooms and additional bathroom with shower and w.c. and access to large loft area.

There is superb potential for the creation of further accommodation, or indeed a self-contained apartment, in a lower ground floor basement currently made up of four substantial rooms with a side passageway which has direct access to both the front and rear of the property.

To the rear of the property lies the residence's beautiful walled garden which really does complement the property superbly and is a clear asset to this city centre accommodation. The garden itself has a circular lawned area with raised beds stocked with an array of mature plants, shrubs and trees. There is a parking area for two cars at the end of the garden with a remote controlled gate giving access to a private road at the rear of the property.

Overall this is a wonderful opportunity for you to acquire a period property within the heart of the city centre which very rarely becomes available. We strongly urge an internal inspection in order to appreciate the vast accommodation that this property has to offer and we are confident that you will not be left disappointed.
