A sunny rear garden with upper patio leads to 2 parking spaces to the rear - a real rarity in this central position.
The Property - An attractive character town house, within a few minutes walk of the town centre and harbourside, and ideally positioned with Kimberley Park literally over the road. The three/four bedrooms, two reception rooms and two bath/shower rooms provide generous accommodation, perfect for family purchasers in particular.
As well as the period features, the layout of the accommodation remains original, with the 'classic' double reception rooms and a kitchen/breakfast room to the rear leading onto the shower room, also on ground floor. A part galleried landing accesses the superbly proportioned bathroom above the kitchen, with the original bedroom arrangement above the reception rooms comprising two generous doubles and a single above the entrance porch. The loft has been converted into a large 'room' and benefits from Velux windows adding much light on both sides, as well as several eaves storage areas.
A particularly appealing asset to the house are the outside areas, with a mature front garden and approach pathway which links around the side via another path to the rear garden, arranged over three separate levels. A courtyard, leading from the kitchen and dining room, provides an enclosed and private sitting-out space with a raised lawned area behind with timber shed, leading onto a further patio terrace, catching much sun throughout the day and evening.
