Dating back to Victorian times the house has brick faced principal walls with a double pitched concrete tiled roof over the main house and a mono-pitched matching roof over the rear wing. Sash windows have been renewed as necessary with double-glazed panes and there are cottage style, multi-pane casement, vertical and "Yorkshire" side-sliding windows to the rear and side elevations. A gas fired central heating system is installed with consistent hot water from a pressurized unvented system.
The rooms are elegant and well-proportioned with high ceilings to the main house on both floors and a superb two-storey walk-in bay window which features in the main reception room and master bedroom. The kitchen, bathroom and both shower rooms have stylish contemporary suites, fittings and tiling. As a specialist in flooring, the owner has improved this aspect of the accommodation to an exceptional level to include contrasting Amtico floors throughout the hallway, reception rooms, kitchen, study, bathroom and shower rooms. To the rear of the garden, this town centre property has the valuable benefit of a spacious parking courtyard and a large brick and block built full width double garage with tiled roof and two pairs of double doors facing the courtyard.
