This highly desirable period home is a true statement property that any owner can take pride in. It dates back to the early 1700s and showcases impressive kerb appeal and a facade that perfectly embodies the classic Georgian era. It offers a range of features that are hard to come by in properties located so close to the town centre. The property benefits from extensive secure parking, a detached garage, and stunning south-facing gardens that are not only substantial in size but also provide exceptional privacy.

The interior of the property is equally impressive, offering a spacious and characterful living space across three floors. The layout provides great versatility, including a ground floor annexe area that is perfect for accommodating dependent relatives or guests. This annexe area comprises a sitting room with an adjoining bedroom and a shower room. On the upper floors, there are three large double bedrooms, each serviced by either a family bathroom or an ensuite bathroom.

The property is approached from the roadside via double wooden gates at the side of the property, which open onto an expansive block-paved driveway capable of accommodating multiple vehicles, a significant advantage in this location. There is also a detached garage adjacent to the parking area, featuring up and over door at the front and a pitched tiled roof. Additionally, there is further parking space available at the front of the property if needed.

Situated behind a charming and mature front garden with a lawn and hedged borders, the property stands back from the road. A side gate and pathway lead to an attractive covered porch and the hallway beyond.

From the hallway, stairs ascend to the first floor and descend to the cellarage, while doors provide access to the ground floor accommodation.

Sitting room
To the left-hand side of the hallway, there is a light and airy sitting room with dual aspect windows, offering pleasant street views to the front and overlooking the delightful gardens at the rear.

The sitting room also features an oak ceiling beam and a period fireplace housing a wood-burning stove.

Beyond the sitting room, there is a cosy snug with abundant character details, including beautiful, exposed timbers and brickwork. It boasts a full-height window that overlooks the garden.

A door from the snug leads to an adjoining shower room and bedroom, creating a useful annexe area.

The well-appointed shower room includes built-in furniture with storage, a washbasin, a low-level WC, a towel radiator, and a tiled shower cubicle.

The adjoining bedroom is tucked away in a quiet corner of the ground floor and benefits from a tall ceiling with timbers and a full-height window offering views over the rear gardens.

Kitchen/dining room
Completing the ground floor accommodation is a spacious and bright family kitchen, ideally located at the rear of the house with views and access to the garden. This generous space is perfect for contemporary living and entertaining, with a spacious dining/living area that seamlessly connects to the adjoining kitchen.

The dining space features a delightful inglenook-style brick fireplace and a window with pleasant street views.

The kitchen area is nicely appointed with granite work surfaces, a range of high-quality light wood units with under-cupboard lighting, integrated ovens and hob, and ample space for additional appliances.

In the basement, there is an excellent wine cellar typical of the age, offering valuable storage space.

Master bedroom
On the first floor, the master bedroom offers ample fitted wardrobe space and a spacious ensuite bathroom accessible via an archway and lobby with storage.

The ensuite comprises a panelled bath, a tiled shower cubicle, a low-level WC, a bidet, downlighters, and fitted furniture incorporating storage and a washbasin.

Bedroom three
The second bedroom on this floor exudes charm and character with exposed timbers and a feature fireplace.

Family bathroom
The family bathroom is also located on the first floor and has a refreshing ambience with blue and green tiling. It features exposed timbers, a panelled bath, a chrome towel radiator, and a low-level WC with a hidden cistern.

Bedroom two
On the second floor, there is another suite that could be used as the master bedroom, consisting of a spacious double bedroom with an adjoining dressing room and ensuite facilities. The bedroom enjoys dual-aspect windows, providing elevated views of the surroundings, and showcases exposed timbers and a brick fireplace.

The excellent dressing area is equipped with a range of fitted wardrobes and leads to the neatly appointed ensuite, which includes a tiled shower cubicle, exposed brickwork, a towel radiator, a low-level WC, and fitted furniture incorporating storage and a washbasin.

This wonderful home is complemented by a delightful rear garden, distinguishing it from many others on the High Street, where quality outdoor space is highly sought after.

The fantastic outside area is both spacious and beautifully landscaped in a cottage garden style. It benefits from a secluded leafy backdrop that imparts a semi-rural ambience.

These sunny grounds face south and consist of a two-tier paved terrace bordered by low-level walling, transitioning into sweeping lawns with well-established borders.

The garden is surrounded by mature trees and hedging, which provide privacy and a lovely natural backdrop.

The property has mains gas, electricity, water and drainage. There is broadband available at this property.
