This substantial townhouse already offers extensive family living, set across 3 floors and benefitting from further exciting potential to convert either or both the dry Cellar and Attic, to create perhaps additional bedrooms, Home Office, Entertainment Den or teenage rumpus room; subject to all relevant planning permissions. The house retains lovely original period features throughout from decorative Hall tiles, picture rails to the high ceilings and statuesque fireplaces with marble mantels in many rooms.
The property is well located a leisurely 15 mins stroll to the very centre of the City, less out onto the hiking/cycling trails of open countryside towards Breinton. While nearby are council garages available to rent as well as neighbourhood allotments and park. Also conveniently close to hand are the myriad amenities of Whitecross offering newsagents, supermarkets with petrol station, family butcher, convenience stores and Ofsted “Good” Whitecross Academy - High School and Specialist Sports College.
Entrance Hall – Beyond the stone arched shelter of the Rain Porch opens the Front Door with large fanlight above with the Hall beyond boasting lovely original decorative tiling.
Sitting Room – The welcoming Sitting Room delights in a full, original sash, bay window flooding the room with natural light and highlighting the original fireplace. The working open fireplace has unusually an ornate green cast iron inset, framed by lovely floral side tiles, surrounded by a white with pale grey veining marble mantelpiece. Classic Victorian details are abundant with picture rail, stripped wood flooring, door and deep wainscoting.
Dining Room – A spacious and malleable room boasting ample space for a large dining table for the gathering of family and friends. Echoing the Sitting Room in the same honey tones of the original wood flooring and boasting another statuesque working fireplace with charming lily side tiles. To the fire side the room retains full height fitted cupboards with twin middle drawers, all providing copious storage. While the notably wide window frames views into the rear garden.
Breakfast Room – Between the Dining and Breakfast Rooms lies a Downstairs WC with original red and black checkerboard floor tiling that extends into the Breakfast Room. A room retaining a charming original fitted wooden unit with drawers above twin double cupboards while to the wall above is mounted a rack of 4 display shelves combining to present a country dresser. The room has a large original sash window and one of several new radiators recently installed downstairs.
Kitchen – With a step down and pass through beside the open chimney the Breakfast Room is physically and visually well connected to the Kitchen beyond, offering the potential to blend the rooms together into a more modern and desirable Kitchen/Diner and compounding the advantage in allowing the formal Dining Room to perhaps be transformed into a Family Room. The traditional Kitchen is fully fitted with white units warmed by solid wood countertops and wall-mounted twin plate racks. It offers space for freestanding fridge/freezer, under-counter washing machine with dishwasher position beside the Belfast sink set beneath a window overlooking the rear garden. The opened chimney recess offers space for a 6burner gas range cooker.
Bedroom 1 – The spacious Double Bedroom with original wood flooring also retains an original fireplace with black marble mantel. It delights in a large original sash window framing neighbourhood views out to Breinton’s Italianate water tower.
Bedroom 2 – A double room with original fireplace with very pretty side tiles, wood flooring and rather charmingly retains the old gas light wall fixture. The window frames views over the rear garden and out to the Hereford red brick period properties of this venerable neighbourhood.
Family Bathroom – The Bathroom retains an original wall-mounted basin, neatly complimented by both modern but period-style freestanding claw foot bath and radiator with heated towel rail. The suite is completed with large corner shower cubicle featuring both regular and Rainhead showers.
Separate WC – Beside the Bathroom lies the separate WC home to the 4 years old Worcester combi boiler.
Bedroom 3 – Up on the second floor lies the third Double Bedroom. A carpeted room with fitted wall of wardrobes, while the double glazed window frames engaging cityscape views sweeping from the city’s church spires and cathedral tower out to open countryside far beyond.
Bedroom 4 – The last of the Double bedrooms is a carpeted and characterful room with pitched ceiling line and recessed alcove. It also retains a fireplace with white painted metal surround and mantel. The outside Landing benefits from double-glazed window in common with the floor below while above a loft hatch gives access to the Attic.
Cellar – From the Entrance Hall steps wind down into the carpeted Cellar providing copious storage with separate WC to the side. The main room benefits from an External Door leading up the the front of the house while to the side opens a long recess ideal for the storage of family equipment and bikes. The Cellar offers a teenage rumpus room or discreet Home Office with the potential to fully convert for desired use.
Set back from the pavement the Front Garden benefits from a brick stairway allowing direct access to the Cellar. With additionally a right of access across from the neighbour’s garden, the Rear Garden enjoys a wide stone paved patio, giving way to a central lawn bounded by mature shrubs. While an open timber Shed close to the house provides useful storage, the second grander Shed offers a charming retreat within the garden in addition to a secure tool store.
