The Property

Having been thoughtfully restored and extended by the present owners, this 3 bedroom terrace is a lovely example of the Victorian period, positioned centrally on this ever popular row with a south/westerly aspect. It offers well proportioned and characterful accommodation arranged over three floors including a charming attic conversion. Period features such as high ceilings, exposed wooden floorboards, open fireplaces and picture rails are found within. A hallway welcomes you, providing a space for coats and shoes that can be closed off from the rest of the area. From here is access into the dining room and a staircase leading directly to the first floor. The sitting room to the front enjoys views across the Golden Valley, with an open fireplace housing a wood burning stove. Double doors lead to the dining room with tiled fireplace, built-in shelving to the alcoves and beautiful exposed wooden floorboards and there can also be found a useful storage cupboard. A door leads into the kitchen which has been extended and comprises a range of wall and base units with wooden work surfaces and spaces for a range cooker, fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. A cloakroom/WC is located to the rear of the kitchen with the floor being tiled throughout. The back door from the kitchen leads outside, where steps take you up to the terraced gardens. From the first floor landing, doors lead off to two bedrooms – both benefitting from lovely exposed floorboards, and the family bathroom with wooden flooring and built-in airing cupboard. The bright front bedroom is currently used as an office/snug and enjoys views across the valley. A further door opens onto a wooden staircase leading to the second floor where an attic conversion provides another double bedroom. The exposed red brick chimney breast is a charming feature of this room with Velux style windows to both sides providing a good deal of light.


To the rear of the house are small paved and terraced gardens which have been landscaped by the present owners to provide stylish areas for an outdoor patio set as well as an ornamental pond and wild garden area. They can also be accessed from a private gate on Park Road, where the garage is located directly behind the property. To the front is a small lawned garden; a perfect sunny spot for a bistro set from which to sit with your favourite tipple and take in the valley views. Directly below the communal footpath is a strip of privately owned allotment style garden ideal for growing fruit and veggies.
