Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An historic town house in sought after Canynge Square.


A fine Grade 2 listed townhouse constructed circa 1840 and benefitting from a south west facing and private walled garden. Displaying plenty of original detail, there is a modern pallet and contemporary enhancements include the open plan lower ground floor. Canynge Square is advantageously place within 0.4 miles of the fashionable village and the residents have created a wonderful community with the Square gardens a focal point for gatherings.

There is an entrance vestibule opening through to the welcoming reception hall. A rising staircase with mahogany turned handrail extends through the house and descends to the lower ground floor. On the hall floor there are two principal rooms; the drawing room has a pair of full length windows and doors with working shutters leading to a flag stone terrace and the south west facing garden. A focal point is the feature fireplace with ornate surround, cast inset and gas living flame fire, whilst the recesses have built in bookshelves and cabinets. A sitting room adjacent has a casement window overlooking the square and a further feature fireplace with built in bookcases into the recesses. A boot room and cloak room complete the ground floor accommodation. The lower ground floor is principally open plan and incorporates the kitchen and living/dining area. The kitchen was designed and fitted by Harvey Jones with comprehensive wall and base units and Silestone work surfaces. There is a larder, integrated dishwasher, microwave and a sizeable gas range cooker with an extractor hood. A picture window overlooks the front well and storage area. The living/dining area has ascending stairs to the south west facing garden and a wood burning stove which acts as a focal point. Exposed timber floors extend through to the inner hall with useful under stair store cupboards and the utility room beyond has the prerequisite plumbing for a washing machine.

There are five bedrooms arranged over the first and top floors and these are served by the two bathrooms. The principal bedroom includes a pair of full length sash windows opening on to the balustraded balcony which overlooks the garden. The second bedroom adjacent is being used currently as a home office and has built in cupboards whilst the bathroom is contemporary with a roll top bath and separate shower cubical. The three top floor bedrooms are served by another bathroom and enjoy orientations to both front and rear.

Canynge Square has a communal garden, fringed with mature hedging and incorporating a large strip of lawn and some specimens. The south west facing garden dedicated to the property is walled and with pedestrian access onto Canynge Road. There is a sun terrace directly off the drawing room, a level lawn and a mature planting programme around the periphery provides privacy and some colour.
