The Property

Upon entering Earsham Street via the front door we are welcomed into the generous reception hall where the feeling of space found throughout the home is instantly apparent. A window looks onto Earsham Street whilst a cast iron fireplace offers a characterful focal point to the space. An arch opens to the lobby area where our stairs rise to the first floor,opposite we step into the cloaks room which in-turn leads to the w/c and a trap door opens to the wine cellar. At the front of the property we find the sitting room enjoying two sash windows to the front aspect, a charming fire place provides a focal point to the cosy space. Passing the stairs we step into the drawing room where the property evolves. At over 21.ft the drawing room provides a superb spot for entertaining and family living alike. A large window over looks the stunning rear gardens whilst French doors open to the patio. A large cupboard is set below the stairs whilst a cast iron fire commands a central position to the room. From here we step into the kitchen breakfast room which in-turn opens to the conservatory. The kitchen is fitted with a range of timber fronted units set against contrasting work surfaces and splash backs, our sink is set below the window looking into the conservatory whilst an 'aga' is set to the inner wall. Stepping into the conservatory a further set of French doors open to the garden. This generous room provides the perfect spot to enjoy the garden all year round and currently serves as an ample dining room. At the rear of the house we pass through the boot room which leads to the utility. An external door opens to the impressive parking area whilst an internal door opens to a stair case which rises to the home office/study. This room offers a variety of uses to suit each individual. Currently a working space set away from the main accommodation but would potentially provide superb secondary accommodation within the main residence. Returning to the hall we climb the stairs to the impressive first floor landing. Set the front of the building we find the first two generous double bedrooms, both of which enjoy built in storage and the charming view of Earsham Street. At the head of the landing we find the main bathroom whilst looking over the rear gardens is the sizeable master suite. The master bedroom offers a superb double room with two sash windows flooding the space with light, a walk in wardrobes offers ample storage and en-suite bathroom complements the room. Stepping along the hall steps lead up to the boiler and drying room whilst a second stair case rises to the upper floor. At the head of the stairs we step through the library which provides a superb retreat. Doors open to two further rooms. At the rear a charming twin bedroom whilst the fifth completes the accommodation.



Outside

Approaching the property from Earsham Street we access the property via the front door whilst from Chaucer Street gates open to the secure wall parking area and cart lodge style garage. This area is a rare addition to a central town house and offers ample parking and turning. A door opens to the rear lobby/boot room whilst access via the cart lodge leads into the impressive rear gardens. The gardens can be accessed from French doors that open from both the conservatory and drawing room where we step onto an impressive patio providing the perfect spot to enjoy the westerly aspect and views over the immaculately kept grounds. An attractive red brick wall encloses this exceptionally quiet, private space whilst low lying beds frame the garden and are filed with a range of flowering shrubs and plants. As we cross the lawn we pass the pond and water feature which flows to it. An arch in the brick wall leads to a hidden garden store whilst a rose arch leads between to flower beds to the rear lawn where a range of mature trees add to the privacy.
