Description
A home with historic importance in a very popular location.

This three storey two bedroom property has delightful reminders of that time retaining many of its original period features. You enter the property into a small porch which is a useful cupboard area for hanging coats and storing shoes and then enter through into the living room. A spacious room and you immediately notice the original large Bath stone fireplace and enchanting solid stone spiral staircase leading to the first floor. There are windows to both front and rear aspect and glazed door leads to the rear garden. All windows to the front aspect of the property have been secondary glazed providing a peaceful atmosphere throughout. The first floor landing leads to both the kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen is fitted with modern floor and wall units with space for appliances and windows to both front and rear aspects. There is also room for a small breakfast table. The bathroom is very nicely fitted with bath and overhead shower, WC, washbasin and heated towel rail. The spiral stone stairs continue from here and winds up to the second floor landing which leads to both bedrooms. Bedroom one is double in size with space for a wardrobe and windows to both front and rear aspect with an additional rooflight allowing natural light in. Bedroom two is a single room with window to the front aspect. Externally a peaceful southerly facing 'suntrap' garden provides paved seating area adjoining the property and then a nicely terraced lawn seating area to the rear which is accessed via stone steps. You will also find a large wooden built shed to the rear and gated access to Millbrook Lane and residential car parking spaces. An ideal property for professional couples or investors looking for holiday let opportunities. Potential residential rental yield of 4.5% p.A.
