Asking Price Of £1,500,000
Gloucester House is situated in the Myrdle Street Conservation Area and is a fine example of a late Georgian tonwhouse, full of character and style, which has recently been ingeniously restored.
The work has been undertaken by one of the acknowledged experts in the restoration of buildings of this period and has taken some five years to achieve. It has coincided with somethinng of a renaissance in the whole area. The restoration of the property has featured in a number of magazines and in the recently published book "Romantic English Homes".
The house dates from about 1797 and when first built would have looked east over open fields, today it has a vista down Varden Street and benefits for the morning sun. Like other houses in New Road, it was built to meet the demands of the new found wealth in the area, known as "water money" and was first occupied by an affluent sea captain.
The accommodation is on four floors with an attractive garden at the rear.
The accommodation is very flexible and at present the rooms are used as a series of suites but would be equally suitable as a more conventional layout which would provide a drawing room on the upper ground floor overlooking the garden and a sitting room and small study at the front of the house. There are two bedrooms on the first floor and a shower room; two further bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor and second kitchen which could become a further bedroom or dressing room. The lower ground floor has a dining room/reception room opening onto the garden, kitchen and larder with a conservatory which gives access to the studio overlooking the garden.
