About this property
Exceptionally well appointed substantial Grade II listed GEORGIAN townhouse of elegant proportions, restored to a high specification, combining contemporary and period features, with a SOUTH facing garden and PARKING for several vehicles, a short level walk to the City centre.
The Old Surgery is a beautifully presented Grade II listed Georgian townhouse offering flexible accommodation, of elegant proportions over three floors. In recent years the property has undergone extensive restoration which sympathetically combines contemporary features with period integrity. Upon entering the house the Reception Hall is bright, spacious and welcoming, with views through to the garden. From the hallway there are doors leading to three reception rooms, a cloakroom, and a large Laundry Room and a door also leads to the outstanding Kitchen/Breakfast room which features a central island/breakfast bar, and a range of custom made units with integral appliances, including a Miele dishwasher, two Neff ovens, a Neff induction hob and warming drawer, and an American style fridge freezer. The family room is accessed from the kitchen, from which there are French doors leading onto the rear garden patio. The impressive large garden room may be accessed via the hall or the kitchen via full height glazed doors, allowing plenty of light into the ground floor. The garden room is double aspect with full height bi-fold doors allowing the room to be completely opened up which is ideal during the summer. From the Reception Hall stairs rise to a split level, dual aspect first floor landing. The principle bedroom suite overlooks the garden, and has a walk-in dressing room and large bathroom.
