Property Snapshot

This wonderful home has an interesting history, dating back we believe to circa 1650 and once serving as one of the town's Inns, hence the name Star & Garter House. The property boasts a fantastic footprint of accommodation over four floors including the cellar and a recent garden room extension, which flows nicely from the dining area. The property has been well-maintained and includes the installation of a new roof in 2018. There are six excellent bedrooms arranged over the two upper floors, ideal for large families or those needing home office space. The bedrooms are served by a large ensuite bathroom adjoining the master bedroom as well as a well-appointed shower room, with the bonus of a ground floor wet room tucked away at the rear of the property.

Outside, there is a walled rear garden, which is a real suntrap and features a useful brick store and a UPVC double-glazed conservatory/greenhouse.

Description
The property is approached from Welch Gate via a solid wooden front door giving way to a useful enclosed side passageway, which is laid to engineered bricks and features wall lighting, a door leading to the rear garden and an additional door into the main entrance hall. The hallway has stairs rising to the first floor and doors leading to the sitting room and the dining room.

The inviting sitting room is generous in size and nicely light, featuring a central brick fireplace as the focal point, which we believe is in working order as an open fire. This room also benefits from wall lights, windows to the front aspect and two wall-mounted electric heaters.

To the rear of the property is a separate dining room, which is adjacent to the kitchen affording scope to knock through, if required. This room includes exposed floorboards, wall lights, a Velux style window, a wall-mounted electric heater and flows open plan into the adjoining garden room.

This lovely garden room is a recent addition to the ground floor accommodation and offers a very pleasant reception space overlooking the garden, with double French doors leading outside and an internal door accessing the wet room. The latter is a fully tiled shower room comprising a wall-mounted washbasin, a low-level WC and a wall-mounted heater.

The kitchen completes the ground floor accommodation, comprising matching wall and base units, a built-in oven, a hob with an extractor above, space for various appliances including a dishwasher, a washing machine and a fridge freezer, plus exposed floorboards and a window to the rear aspect.

There is a useful cellar, which is generous in size and benefits from power, lighting and a pump to eliminate water ingress.

First floor
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms and the family shower room.

The light and airy master bedroom boasts lovely views across the town, including St Annes Church and benefits from an extremely spacious ensuite bathroom. The ensuite features a panelled bath, a pedestal washbasin, a low-level WC, an airing cupboard and a sash window to the rear aspect.

The family shower room has been recently improved and comprises a tiled shower cubicle, a pedestal washbasin, a low-level WC, wood panelling and exposed floorboards.

Second floor
A landing provides access to the useful loft storage and the two upper floor bedrooms, both of which are a good-size and enjoy views over Welch Gate.

Outside
At the rear of the property, there is a delightful walled garden, which is incredibly private and sheltered, a real suntrap. The garden is mainly laid to gravel with raised beds and fruit trees and features two useful outbuildings, including a brick lean-to with power and lighting, which is ideal for use as a utility space, in addition to a double-glazed conservatory/greenhouse, with a lovely glass roof.

Agents note
18 Welch Gate is subject to a Grade 2 listed status.
