Occupying an extremely convenient location overlooking Stewart Green, only a few moments walking distance from the centre of town, this DETACHED VICTORIAN STONE VILLA, dating back to the early 19th century, has an imposing and elegant appearance with the principal elevation being extremely unusual in that it has a different number of windows at ground and first floor levels. The structure is of polished ashlar with rough cast side and rear elevations and droved ashlar dressings. There is a pilastered entrance door with architraved first floor windows and projecting cills. It is a Category B Listed Building and the listing states the house to be of good quality construction with many traditional external details and finishes.
As one would expect from a house of this period the property has retained all the charming features including ornate cornice work, ceiling roses, picture rails and open fireplaces.
The accommodation comprises an entrance vestibule with storm door leading into an impressive hallway giving access to the sitting room having a large southwest facing window overlooking Stewart Green and on the gable wall an attractive tiled open fireplace; also having an outlook across Stewart Green the dining room is well proportioned and has a tiled fireplace; originally the drawing room, the present owners use this room as a spacious ground floor bedroom ; the cloakroom leads through to a bright bathroom; almost square the kitchen has a super range of floor and wall units complemented by a tiled splashback and incorporating a gas 6 burner Rangemaster with cookerhood above; just off the kitchen is a large pantry and utility room with a door leading to the rear garden. A splendid carpeted staircase with traditional wrought iron balusters and mahogany banister leads to the landing accessing four huge bedrooms and family sized bathroom.
To the rear of the property the garden grounds are mainly laid to lawn and bounded by a high stone wall providing privacy. A large stone outbuilding adjoins the property and is currently used for storage purposes but could be converted into extra accommodation with the correct planning permissions. A garage was added to the outbuilding a number of years ago and can be accessed from the front of the property.
