Characterised by opulent proportions and priceless period features, including original sash-and-case windows with working shutters and an exquisite collection of fireplaces, this three-storey semi-detached Victorian villa represents an exceptionally rare opportunity to restore a magnificent period home to its former glory. With two reception rooms, a breakfasting kitchen with a separate pantry and utility room, and seven double bedrooms, the sprawling residence offers endless potential to create a contemporary family home for generations to come.
Nestled behind a neat front garden bound by manicured hedges, the stone-built villa instantly endears with its handsome bay windows and arched doorway. Double storm doors open into a practical entrance vestibule, followed by the breathtaking hall, where soaring ceilings and a grand staircase make a striking first impression. Positioned at the front of the property, the enormous living room simply oozes period charm, with classic features including a spectacular bay window and a splendid stone fireplace flanked by an open Edinburgh Press and an authentic service bell. Continuing along the hall, the ground floor also accommodates a formal dining room; a spacious breakfasting kitchen with a large walk-in pantry and a separate utility room; a convenient WC; and two useful storage cupboards. Upstairs, the first floor boasts the elegant master bedroom and three further double bedrooms, plus a contemporary shower room with a walk-in double shower compartment, a pedestal basin and a WC. A second staircase from the landing leads up to the second floor, where there are three further double bedrooms. The property is equipped with gas central heating, partial double glazing and partial secondary glazing.
In addition to the well-tended front garden, the villa enjoys an enchanting south-west facing rear garden, which is fully enclosed and comprises a sunny patio, a selection of mature shrubs and trees, and a useful shed. Zoned permit parking (priority parking area B6) is available directly adjacent.
