A characterful, well-proportioned three storey terraced home standing in a convenient location close to the town centre, with enclosed garden and cellar. Entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, attached outhouse wc and a cellar. First floor master bedroom, guest bedroom and a family bathroom. Second floor third bedroom. Enclosed front and rear gardens, terraced and lawned west facing rear garden and a garden shed. THE PROPERTY This comfortable Victorian mid terraced house has a former coach arch to one side of the house, meaning that while it is mid terraced, it only has a connected wall to one side, on the ground floor. The property benefits from a charming mix of modern and traditional features such as the original sash and casement windows and the double-glazed door and windows to the rear, original fireplaces, exposed floorboards and a combi gas boiler. The property will be considered dated in places, so would benefit from modernisation and affords further scope for improvement as the cellar is original, with good ceiling height, and the garden is a good size, if a home office or workshop shed is required. The well-proportioned accommodation, in brief, comprises a panelled front door with window light above, leading in from the front steps to the entrance hall, with stairs leading to the first floor and doors to the two reception rooms, the kitchen/breakfast room and the cellar. The sitting room is charming with exposed floorboards, impressive original feature fireplace, beautiful low-level alcove cupboards and a traditional bay window with sash window to the front elevation. The dining room opens, via a double-glazed door, to the rear garden and also benefits from another superb feature fireplace with mantle shelving and back board housing a mirror. The kitchen/breakfast room is lightly fitted with a small range of bespoke built-in units providing cupboards, shelves and a stainless-steel sink unit, space and plumbing for a washing machine and an electric cooker point. The breakfast area gives space for a table and chairs and there is a half glazed back door to the garden and two casement windows to the side. A door leads down to the cellar stairs from the hallway and the cellar is as original with a brick floor, painted brick and flint walls, a walk-in pantry store cupboard with door and the former coal hole under the path to the front. A casement window with ventilation, opens to the grilled light well to the front garden. Off a half landing to the first floor, the family bathroom affords an enamelled panel enclosed bath, wc, pedestal wash basin, linen store cupboard, cupboard housing the gas fired combi boiler and there is a double-glazed window to the rear. There are two bedrooms on the first floor, both with feature fireplaces and a third bedroom on the second floor, with casement dormer window giving views to the rear. OUTSIDE The property is approached across a gated stepped path from the street, with a wall enclosed front garden with gravel area, lavender planting and store space for the bins. The rear garden has an attached outhouse wc (which could potentially be incorporated into the house) and is terraced and lawned, with a high boundary wall to one side and the remnants of a former garden house/store to the rear.
