Situation and Description

This attractive Grade II Listed period house offers deceptively spacious accommodation which is laid out over three floors with an unconverted cellar, offering further living potential. The house retains a number of period features, from sash windows to original fireplaces and currently benefits from gas fired central heating, en suite bathrooms and shower cubicles to the bedrooms and a well-fitted kitchen. On the ground floor, to the rear, is a small but attractive walled garden with separate access to the side via double gates.

On arrival, a front door leads into a reception hall which in turn provides access to a good-sized study at the front of the house with sash window. At the rear is a spacious living room, which along with the adjoining kitchen, creates a wonderful space for the family to gather, with a walk-in bay with doors leading out to the rear garden. The kitchen is well-appointed with a range of cupboards and drawers, fitted gas hob, double oven and fridge and freezer. The living space on the ground-floor is supported by a spacious wet-room with a separate small utility room and door to outside.

From the entrance hall a staircase rises to a first-floor landing, with cloakroom and door to a drawing room, with wooden flooring, marble open fireplace, sash windows to the front overlooking Castle Street and the cathedral beyond. Also, on this floor are two double bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom, and the second with its own shower cubicle and wash hand basin. The staircase continues to the second floor where there are three further double bedrooms, two of which have separate en suite facilities.

Accessed from the living room is a useful cellar, currently divided into two main rooms, one housing the gas fired central heating boiler.

To the rear of the house there are small gardens, which are enclosed by brick-walling with patio area, herbaceous borders and trees, with gates providing access to the side of the property.
