Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Mid-terrace Grade II listed house in need of renovation in excellent central location.


29 Maids Causeway is a Grade II listed mid terrace property constructed during the early 19th century of brick elevations with mainly sash windows beneath a slate tiled roof. The property extends to approximately 2,015 sq ft and has accommodation laid out over four floors and approached via a wide entrance hallway. The property offers a fantastic opportunity to renovate and extend (subject to consent) a central townhouse close to Midsummer Common.

The house is set back from Maids Causeway behind a mature hedge and shingle front garden. Neighbouring properties have used this area for off street parking. The ground floor is entered through a panelled front door with a fan light over into a wide hallway. To the front is the drawing room which has a fireplace with marble surround, built-in glazed bookshelves on either side and a large floor to ceiling window overlooking the front garden. This room has been used in the past as a fourth bedroom. To the rear is a further reception room currently arranged as a dining room which has a similar fireplace surround and cupboards. Down the stairs there is a sitting room to the front and kitchen breakfast room at the rear with a half landing bathroom and utility area.

There are three bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC on the upper two floors. The top floor rooms have wide dormers which could be reconfigured to create a further bedroom and a bathroom.

To the rear the walled garden is fully enclosed.

The property, which is available with vacant possession and no onward chain, can be seen in greater detail on the attached floor plan.
