This large impressive Victorian home is situated on the popular Bath Road in central Old Town, accessed via a gated front garden with a variety of shrubs and box hedging.
Upon entering the property, you can immediately appreciate the grand proportions of the home, as well as the many original features, including tiled floors, four panelled doors and attractive picture rails, cornice, skirting boards and architraves. From here, you have direct access through to the lounge/diner, kitchen/family room/cloakroom, as well as the lower and upper floors.
The large, dual aspect lounge / diner benefits from real wood flooring throughout the space, a feature fireplace with log burner, bay window, and glazed French doors through to the utility and garden beyond. This is a lovely light space with plenty of room for a large family dining table.
The generous kitchen / family room consists of a range of light grey base and wall units, with integrated fridge / freezer and dishwasher, as well as two Bosch ovens and electric hob. You then step down to the family room with a Velux window, which could also be a great breakfast / dining area. Further on there's direct access to the rear garden, as well as the cloakroom, and another space for coats and shoes. In addition, there's a set of glazed doors through to the original 'side return', which is now used as a utility room with base units, sink, and space for washing machine and tumble dryer, plus further access to the rear garden.
On the lower ground floor, there's a good-sized room to the front of the property benefitting from a window for ventilation and fire escape. This space is currently being utilised as a home gym, which is perfectly situated next to the 6 dry person sauna. There's also an additional understairs storage space.
On the first floor is the master suite, family bathroom, and two further bedrooms. The master spans the front of the property, which includes a large double bedroom with bay window, and fitted wardrobes with pull-down rails to maximise the space. The ensuite shower room is fully tiled in an attractive grey, with WC and basin / vanity unit. Bedroom 2 is also a generous double room with a fireplace and window overlooking the rear garden. Next is the family bathroom, with a freestanding roll-top bath, tiled floor, sink and WC. The third bedroom on this floor also overlooks the rear garden and is currently being used as a home office.
The second floor provides two double bedrooms, and a second shower room. There's also a large storage space which could potentially be converted in to a sixth bedroom, subject to the necessary consents. This floor is currently being used a semi-independent space, with bedroom and shower room to the front, with the second room being a kitchen / dining space to the rear. This could however easily be re-instated as a fifth bedroom.
The rear garden is divided into lawn, paved and gravelled areas, as well as a large log store. Some of the garden boundaries are walled, and some fenced. To the rear of the garden is the double garage with electric and lighting, as well as a remote-controlled roller door for easy access. Further beyond the garage is parking for one vehicle, which is accessed from Kent Road.
Whilst this is already an impressive family home, for those of you who like a project, the current vendors had recently employed a local architect to develop plans to reconfigure the kitchen / family room / cloakroom, replace the current garage with an independent office and studio space, provide two parking spaces, as well as a landscaped garden. These plans are available upon request and will be provided to the new owners.
This is a large property in a desirable Old Town location which has plenty of scope for further improvements, or just to be enjoyed in its current configuration.
