A substantial double fronted period property in need of modernization. The house has beautifully proportioned rooms and many lovely character features such as high ceilings, deep skirtings, picture rails, tiled flooring and elegant fireplaces. With thoughtful updating the house could make a truly wonderful family home.

The property is approached by a pathway from the road leading to the impressive arched open porch with original tiled floor. The attractive front door opens into the entrance hall where doors lead through to a wonderful high ceilinged double reception room separated by character tri folding doors. Both rooms benefit from original deep skirting, picture rails and stunning ornate matching fire places. A bay window to the front floods the rooms with light. There are two further less grand reception rooms to the ground floor although both ooze period charm. These rooms are separated by a second staircase that leads to the first floor landing. To the rear of the property there is a kitchen with oil fired Rayburn and basic painted wood units, a utility area and wc with further storage room can be found beyond. Doors from here lead onto both the rear garden and to the side of the house. On the first floor there are four good sized double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The generously proportioned master bedroom has a lovely bay window and benefits from an adjoining dressing room. Staircases lead from either end of the landing to the two loft rooms.


The front of the property is enclosed by a handsome box hedge with cast iron railings and pedestrian access to the side. The good sized garden to rear is mainly laid to lawn, benefitting from a brick built outhouse, believed to be the original kitchen and bathroom of the house. Off road parking and rear pedestrian access to the property make up a condition of the planning permission granted for the LOT 2.
