Elegantly proportioned, this Victorian terraced family home, enjoys a highly-desirable location close to the riverside parks and within walking distance of town centre amenities.

As well as being a six-bedroom home extending to more than 2,700 sq ft, the extensive basements have the benefit of planning consent (subject to conditions), for conversion to provide a two-bedroom apartment.

Enjoying a very appealing location within a much-sought-after area of town, this home provides ideal family accommodation – spacious and elegant, with a good degree of versatility and with both gardens and parking.

The layout follows a typical pattern with an impressive reception hall with timber flooring, a pair of well-proportioned reception rooms with period fireplaces to the ground floor along with a well-appointed breakfast kitchen with a range of cream fronted units – the former both having broad bay windows which overlook the property’s lawned rear garden.

Across the first and second floors are the six double bedrooms, with those at the upper level having some lovely views either towards Middleton Lodge or to the front across town, towards the moors beyond.

There is both a house bathroom and separate shower room, while the main bedroom has its own en-suite facility with a roll-top bath.

There are character features throughout the house and these include some lovely period fireplaces along with ornate cornice work and coving.

In addition to the main accommodation, the house has substantial basement rooms including a utility, workshop, fuel store and a hobbies/playroom running the full length of the property.

The majority of rooms have either windows or doors to the exterior. Planning consent exists (subject to conditions), for the conversion to create a two-bedroom apartment with living room and kitchen, making this an ideal home for those seeking space for a dependant relative or teenager accommodation – equally the renovated basement accommodation could be easily absorbed into the principal living space.

Outside, the front garden has been attractively landscaped and includes a gravel-finished parking area. The majority of the gardens are at the rear and are mostly lawned.

This is a home that has an endearing character. but is ideally suited to modern day requirements.
