A spacious period house with lots of living space, a garden and a great position within a short walk of the Cathedral. This house, in St Thomas Street is a terraced house, part of which in previous years was occupied as an antique shop.
The accommodation on the ground floor includes a large, 28 ft. sitting room and dining room, bathroom, bedroom and kitchen.
On the first floor are a landing, two further bedrooms and a shower room. In all there are three bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room. Outside is a sunny southeast facing garden.
The house appears to be a Victorian property but having regard to the history of St. Thomas Street there is every likelihood it has medieval origins.
The house was once partly used as an antique shop and was also extended about 15 years ago. It has an unusual layout at present but a great deal of living space and the 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
The front door opens to a small porch which then opens to a large sitting room and dining room which is a wonderful living area. A door opens to a hallway which gives access to a bedroom and a well fitted bathroom with both a bath and shower.
Beyond is the kitchen and breakfast room. This has floor and wall cupboards, hardwood worktops, oven, hob, boiler and space for a washing machine and fridge/freezer. There's also plenty of space for a table and chair plus french doors into the garden. On the first floor are two bedrooms and a shower room.
The french doors in the kitchen lead to a garden with stonewall and timber panel fencing, and which include a paved terrace and a garden shed. This garden, with a southerly aspect being a great asset of the property.
This is a probate sale and the freehold of this property, and the adjoining properties are held by the vendors. The precise details of the leases of the other properties are being considered.
