This wonderful period, city property retains a plethora of period features alongside a striking glass extension to the rear. The house extends to almost 2,400 sq.ft. and is arranged over five floors. At ground floor level there is a traditional sitting room to the front of the property with beautiful sash window, open fire with cast iron fireplace, tall ceilings and attractive cornicing. The stripped floorboards continue through an archway to a further reception area currently arranged as a library. Light floods this end of the house via the garden room, a later extension designed with a glass roof and a bank of glazed sliding doors providing a wonderful outlook on to the garden. Steps lead down from this stunning room into the kitchen which is comprehensively fitted with contemporary units, integrated appliances and stone flooring. Beyond the kitchen is the dining area with a store room currently used as a wine store. There is also a w/c on this level. Moving through the property the bedrooms are arranged over the top three floors and include a substantial master bedroom, again packed with period features and a generous family bathroom with a wealth of fitted storage. On the second floor there is another generous bedroom, a shower room and bedroom four which is currently fitted out as a study. The third bedroom, again of excellent proportions, is found on the third floor. Also worthy of note are the lovely views over the city rooftops that can be enjoyed from the upper floors.
The property is situated on a highly sought after road in the very heart of the city. The road mainly consists of attractive character properties and is superbly positioned for the extensive amenities and excellent cultural and leisure facilities that the city offers. The area also benefits from an superb choice of private and state schools, falling within catchment for Western and Westgate schools and being less than a mile from Peter Symonds Sixth Form College. The railway station (0.5 mile) offers access to London Waterloo (about 1 hour) and the M3 provides road access to London (about 70 miles), the South Coast and motorway network.
To the rear of the property there is a beautifully planted, private walled garden that is stocked with an excellent range of plants and shrubs providing interest throughout the year. There is a pedestrian gate at the end of the garden which leads to one of the four parking spaces and the drive which is owned by the property with access rights for the neighbouring houses. The house itself comes with the significant benefit of four allocated parking spaces.
