The handsome brick and stucco façade of this beautiful Victorian town house conceals a wealth of original details throughout the elegantly proportioned, free flowing accommodation which is arranged over four floors and has been considerably enhanced by a thoughtfully planned extension to the rear. A flight of steps lead up to the open porch beyond which the welcoming entrance hall with its charming original staircase opens to the bright sitting room with a deep bay window, tall ceiling and original fireplace with open fire. From here beautiful pine and glazed folding doors open to the dining room. The generous kitchen/breakfast room, with vaulted ceiling and doors to the garden, forms the extension. There is also a side lobby and shower room at this level. The lower ground floor comprises a hallway and two well proportioned rooms, currently used a second sitting room and study. Over the first and second floors are four bedrooms and a further bathroom.

To the rear of the house is an enchanting and established garden which has been thoughtfully planted to provide year round interest. Within the garden is a pleasant courtyard area accessed from the kitchen, a pretty ornamental pond, an additional terrace and a wide expanse of lawn, the perfect vantage point from which to admire the attractive rear elevation which is as pretty as that to the front. The property also has the unusual advantage of an additional parcel of land opposite the house where a number of vehicles can be parked.
