The house has been well maintained but now awaits the new owners to bring it back to its former splendour.
An impressive set of granite steps leads to the hall door, once inside the hall is very grand with high ceiling and detailed plasterwork. The reception room to the front has a brick fireplace and wooden floor with a door leading to the kitchen/ dining room, full of natural light and south facing. Both rooms have the original window shutters. On the return there is a w.c and bathroom. At basement level there is independent access from the street with accommodation comprising a living room and bedroom, kitchen area, sun room and store room.
On the first floor the main room spans the width of the house and has two large windows with original shutters and marble fireplace, the second bedroom is a generous size. On the return there is a shower room and door to a first floor sun room while a staircase leads to an original attic bedroom with cast iron fireplace.
The property benefits from off street parking to the front and a south facing rear garden which is not overlooked to the rear and shaded by mature trees.
