Property Description

Full description

Situated in an enviable position, close to the town's amenities and walking distance to the train station is this beautifully presented and well maintained ground floor converted apartment being part of a former family home and boarding school. We believe that part of the property dates to 1812 with an extension to the side in the 1830's. In keeping with the era, the apartment boasts character features which include high ceilings, ornate ceiling roses and attractive door frame architrave mouldings, as well as picture frames. To meet contemporary expectations, the apartment has double glazed windows some with a Georgian bar inlay and gas fired central heating via radiators. Over the last three years the current owners have replaced the boiler, installed a new shower and re-decorated. It is imperative to view this remarkable home inside to truly appreciate its size and ambience as well as experiencing its delightful and tranquil surroundings.

In brief, the accommodation consists of communal entrance hall with an original style panelled door opening to the apartments own reception area, further door opens into a large sitting room with feature fireplace and French doors with Plantation style shutters opening to the apartment's very own patio, good sized combined kitchen and dining room with plenty of cupboard space and overlooking the front garden, inner hall, shower room and two double sized bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes. Outside the apartment has an allocated parking space and access to the lovely communal garden and pond as well as its own paved sun terrace.
