Property summary The aesthetically pleasing early Victorian gabled home which sits back from the road behind a high painted retaining wall and shingled driveway. Although the first impressions may be of a small cottage, on entering the property through a central cathedral doorway you are greeted by a split-level hallway with rooms to either side. The accommodation is laid out over two primary floors to the front and three levels to the rear and provides 3055 sq ft of living space comprising; sitting room leading to games room, dining room, kitchen, study, utility room and cloakroom on the lower levels with four bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor level and a further master bedroom suite including built-in wardrobes and a large en-suite bathroom on the top floor. The property has a wide frontage with extensive car parking facilities, a garage and twin gated entrances protected by large trees ensuring a semi-rural feeling. There are a number of original / period features including wooden shutters, high ceilings, ceiling roses and coving, yet the property has modern touches such as an independent controlled heating system, ethernet cabling, modern bedroom and bathroom fittings and being located just off the Victorian waterfront and Common in a one way street, early internal viewing of this spacious family home is strongly recommended in order to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
