THE PROPERTY

Unique detached late Victorian period townhouse, great potential, ideally located for the city centre and mainline station St Pauls Hill is centrally placed between the Upper High Street and Clifton Terrace at its southern end, Stockbridge Road to the north, and the lovely green open space of Orams Arbour to the west. Therefore the city centre and its many amenities plus the mainline station to London Waterloo and down to the South Coast are truly within walking distance with an incredible range of restaurants, coffees shops and bars, the High Street, cinema, theatre, various fitness suites and sports centre. The house is a rather special detached two storey town house with cellar, originally built circa 1895. It remained in the same family until 1976 and was bought by the current owners in 1991. The house has handsome mellow brick elevations, inset sash windows under a hipped slate roof and the library/study addition was completed in 2007 totally in keeping with the original house. Much of the architectural features have been carefully retained including stained glass, dado and picture rails, moulded cornicing, fireplaces, and period joinery. A lovely house to live in with so many attributes and potential to be enlarged subject to planning, with the possible conversion of the large cellar and roof space. The frontage is walled surmounted with wrought iron railings and matching gate and a short black and terracotta chequerboard tiled path leads up to the entrance vestibule and into the entrance hall. The drawing room has a wood burning stove, the study/library is vaulted, with an oak floor, and has a lovely view down the garden. The fireplace in the sitting room is bordered on either side with display/glass and china cupboards. The dining/family room would make an exceptional kitchen, double old pine doors lead into the current kitchen which is fully fitted. Beyond is the vaulted utility boot room and a contemporary style wet room. The current kitchen and utility room could so easily be incorporated into the family room to create the sort of modern day living that buyers demand. There is a large cellar providing excellent storage and a workshop area which again could be converted. The part galleried landing is well lit by two roof lights, there are four bedrooms, the main bedroom has an adjoining shower room and there is a family bathroom. The south facing partly walled private gardens are a very special design feature. Recently landscaped with a shaped brick terrace merging into the lawn and bordered by a serpentine shaped landscaped pebble beach, perfect for colourful pots. On the raised terrace at the end of the garden there is a rather pretty oak framed garden building, double gates provide off street parking. There is a fine magnolia tree, flowering shrubs and roses, Japanese acer, and the garden is screened on the eastern side with mature broadleaf trees.
