Located on a popular and respected residential address this versatile, spacious, mid terrace period home affords accommodation set across four levels with potential to further extend/improve, large southerly facing rear garden and two garages, one double and one single. Approached from the front it is immediately apparent the original detailing and condition of the property which has been well looked after by the current owners for over 50 years. An original inset tiled pathway gives access via an iron gate and leads to the entrance which in turn leads to an impressive vestibule with original wooden glazed door and glazed entrance. The hallway is impressive with stairs and attractive newel post leading to the upper floors.
A door gives access to the large formal Sitting Room benefiting from original cornices and ceiling rose, original fireplace with marble surround, a bay window to the front floods the area with natural light. Original integral sliding doors lead through to the Dining Room with similar original features with a bay window to the rear elevation.
Across the hallway to the front a large family room is currently laid out as Bedroom Seven and offers a spacious room with a bay window to the front elevation and beautiful original fireplace with tiled detailing. Adjoining and accessed from the hallway, a Breakfast Room offers a useful space with an attached kitchen in the rear tenement.
The Kitchen has been recently improved with a matching range of modern slab faced work surfaces and base and wall mounted units incorporating ample storage space, oven, hob, sink with drainer and mixer tap over and an integral dishwasher. There is a large window overlooking the garden.
From the hallway stairs lead to the first floor with a mezzanine landing affording a useful shower room and separate w.c with storage nestled between the two rooms.
The first-floor landing gives access to four double bedrooms to the front and rear, three of which benefit from bay windows and all with built-in wash hand basins and original inset fireplaces. A smaller room between bedroom two and three to the front of the property also provides a useful study/cot room.
Stairs lead up to the second floor with a mezzanine landing having a large window flooding the area with light and offers glorious views across the city towards Maker and the Breakwater.
Two further bedrooms, both double in size and benefiting from wash hand basins can be found with windows overlooking the rear and offering outstanding views. There is also a large playroom/storage room which has two Velux windows to the front elevation. This area does have restricted height due to the sloping ceiling although could easily be converted to provide en suites for bedrooms five and six on the level if required.
The basement level is accessed from underneath the stairs on the ground floor and offers a large hallway giving access to a beautifully situated laundry room with window to the rear and which also houses a newly installed floor standing boiler which runs the central heating for the property. A further room provides a great storage area and is currently utilised as an additional study room, although the ceiling height is restricted at circa 6'1'' in this area. There are two further storage rooms found on this level - a great opportunity for games rooms perhaps?
The large family bathroom has been recently re-fitted and faces the rear of the property and benefits from a five piece suite comprising pedestal wash hand basin, low level w.c, bidet, panelled bath with shower attachment and separate shower cubicle with a window to the rear elevation. A useful W.C is found adjacent.
To the rear of the property there is a large decked area making the best use of the southerly aspect with some views across roof tops. The garden itself gets full sun, there is a further area laid to lawn, a useful summer pergola area and separate metal shed. A pathway leads down to the rear service lane door and gives access to two garages, one single and one double, both having electric roller doors to the rear service lane with power and lighting. The service lane itself is of good width and provides easy access to the garages.
The property benefits from double glazing and gas central heating via the newly installed boiler in 2021.
