Full description

A rare opportunity with exciting potential. A rather special & sizeable (c.2600 sq ft) 5 bedroom, 3 reception room grade II listed circa 1850 neoclassical late Georgian style period town house of understated elegance & charm with front & rear town gardens in a prime location near Whiteladies Road & the Downs. Needs varying degrees of renovation over its five floors to create a stunning period residence, either as currently arranged with a 4 double bedroom upper-floors maisonette & self-contained 1 bedroom garden flat or, subject to any necessary consents, after reintegrating and/or reconfiguring as one impressive home.

Has lots of natural light & real character with classic period features including fireplaces, moulded ceiling cornices and roses, sash windows etc. The dilapidated garden flat requires total refurbishment, the faded but gracious upper floors maisonette needs some upgrading/tlc. There is obvious and valuable potential to restore a once beautiful home to its former glory.

Subject to any necessary consents the lower ground floor can be adaptable & flexible to suit own requirements either by offering the potential to be reintegrated and/or reconfigured & incorporated as one household (the original interconnecting staircase appears to still be in situ) to provide additional accommodation for extra family space, working from home, an independent relative, au-pair or teenagers domain etc. or could simply be a separate self-contained flat for renting out
