The house has been the subject of a programme of conversion and restoration by the current owners, culminating in a beautifully proportioned three storey family home.
The central hallway provides a particular feature approached over a pamment-style tiled floor into a central hall which includes a fine staircase with access to a cloakroom, laundry room and the principal reception rooms.
A drawing room at the front of the property has an original fireplace, bay window and high ceilings. Also at the front of the house lies a sitting room which includes a marble fireplace, dual-aspect windows and again, high ceilings. The kitchen is also at the rear of the property and is fitted with a range of Shaker-style cream-coloured units anchored around an island which incorporates a breakfast bar. The kitchen has a deep alcove suitable for a range-style cooker or AGA. In addition there is a galley pantry with built in oven. The kitchen is open plan to a dining room and includes a wood-fired AGA with French double doors overlooking and leading to the garden. Adjoining the kitchen is a boot room which leads to a side passageway with a collection of useful storage rooms. There is also a second cloakroom and wash-down area.
Stairs from the hall rise to a mezzanine area with a large window providing a great deal of natural light and including a window seat. The first floor landing is particularly spacious with good ceiling heights. The principal bedroom includes an original fireplace, an en suite fitted dressing room and a large en suite bathroom with walk-in shower and twin wash basins. There are three further good-sized bedrooms on the first floor, one with an en suite shower room with electric underfloor heating, another with an en suite dressing room and serviced by a family bathroom.
On the second floor a large bedroom is currently being used as a home office which enjoys far-reaching views over the city landscape. A second double bedroom to the front has high ceilings, an adjoining store room and both rooms are serviced by a bathroom.
The house is elevated from Moulsham Street with steps up to the front door with lawns across the frontage. At the rear there is a driveway from Southborough Road, initially shared with another property then leading to an electric-gated entrance into an independent parking area at the bottom of the property's garden for several vehicles.
