Pear Trees is a striking stone built property set back from Castle Terrace offering well-proportioned family accommodation. Built around 1860, the property has been fully renovated and all services newly installed by the current owners, and now offers generous, practical and versatile accommodation over two principal levels. It is just a short walk to the town centre and mainline train station.
Pear Trees is accessed off Castle Terrace either from a pedestrian path on one side of the front garden or a gravelled driveway on the other side. Both the driveway and the pedestrian path lead to a parking area at front of the house and the single garage. A welcoming front porch which is an ideal place for muddy boots and coats leads into the reception hallway. From here the accommodation flows naturally from room to room starting with the family drawing room. Features of this room include an open fire place, working shutters that surround the bay window and a ceiling rose and cornicing. On the other side of the reception hallway is the dining room and the kitchen. This is the heart of the house and is a wonderful social family space. Large architectural doors separate the two areas but when open one room flows into the other. The kitchen has a good range of wall and base units with Caesarstone work tops, Belfast sink and a large central island for additional storage. There is also space for a breakfast bar for informal dining. The kitchen also offers access outside to the rear patio and garden beyond. A back hallway from the kitchen leads to the family sitting room, large under stair storage cupboard and utility room. The sitting room which was recently constructed from local stone recovered from a local landmark building to be sympathetic with the existing structure of the house offers views out over the back garden, under floor heating, a gas fire and a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams. The current owners have also fitted the sitting room out with customised oak book shelving. At the end of the rear hallway, past the sitting room is the utility room which again has a good range of storage units and is plumbed for washing machine with a back door to the rear patio and garden. A connecting door leads back to the reception hallway at the front of the house. Servicing the public space on the ground floor is a large family shower room.
From the reception hallway on the ground floor a sweeping staircase leads to the first-floor landing. Pear Trees is a particularly light and airy house partly due to a large skylight which allows natural light to flood the landing and circulation space within the property. The first-floor landing offers access to four double bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes and views out over the front or back gardens. The master bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room and a beautiful bay window. In addition to the four double bedrooms there is a fifth single bedroom/study. All the bedrooms are supported by a well-appointed family bathroom with separate shower. A hatch from the landing offers access to the attic via a pull-down Ramsey ladder. The attic is fully insulated to modern day standards.

Outside:
Pear Trees sits centrally within its own private and secure grounds. The property enjoys mature yet manageable front and back gardens with a single garage and a pedestrian path linking one to the other. The front garden and driveway has been beautifully landscaped and offers ample off-street parking for several vehicles. The back garden has got several areas to enjoy depending on where the sun is. With natural stone paving laid to the rear and side of the property and new stone walls built. A patio off the kitchen is an ideal place for alfresco dining whilst the Summer House which has been double glazed and serviced with electricity, will enjoy the late evening summer sun.
The back garden is mainly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and mature trees. It also offers a well-established kitchen garden.
Pear Trees has a former Coach House (useful as a children’s play area or gym) and Stable (useful as a garden/potting room and workshop). The block has been renovated and services built-in making it suitable for further development. A dove cote has also been reinstated. There is a garage to the side of the property.
The property also benefits from bespoke outside railings, electrically controlled gates and Victorian style LED lighting.
