This handsome three-storey period townhouse offers a deceptive amount of space arranged over three floors, with a flexible layout suited to family life, downsizing or young professionals alike. The property retains many period features, such as original fireplaces, and benefits from a later side return extension with glass roof. It is considered that further scope exists to extend, renovate and/or reconfigure further should a buyer wish to do so subject to obtaining the appropriate permissions and consents of course.
In its current format the property boasts two reception rooms on the ground floor alongside the bright kitchen breakfast room with doors to the rear garden and a ground floor bathroom.
On the first floor there is a main bedroom with en suite shower room and a second bedroom of good proportions. Stairs lead to the loft room on the second floor which again subject to works, permissions and regulations could be fully converted to create a third bedroom.
