Full DetailsACCOMMODATION This handsome detached residence is a fine example of Victorian architecture and we understand that it was constructed in the middle of the 19th century.
The property fell into disrepair and was unoccupied for over 50 years, other than housing poultry. When our client purchased the property in 2013, the property was in a derelict state and since then he has carried out extensive renovation works, quite literally from top to bottom.
The property is accessed through a grand entrance hall with solid oak flooring and an impressive staircase leading to the first floor. In line with the demands of modern living, the (originally 4) downstairs rooms have been combined to create a large open plan living / dining kitchen and a double sized living room.
At first floor level there are 4 double bedrooms, 2 have en-suite shower rooms and the master bedroom is en-suite to a superb house bathroom and dressing room. A further staircase leads to the second floor which is within the attic space. This features a landing area which is open plan to a large games / TV room. There is also a 5th bedroom which could easily be split into 2 double bedrooms and a shower room.
The basement has been converted into an annex which can be used on a self-contained basis if required. It is flexible in use but is currently set up with a kitchen, living / bedroom, bedroom 2, shower room and living room / office. This floor links to large attached double garage and workshop.
