Cutting edge modern style with period charm and an attractive lawned garden. Central town position.

This deceptively spacious Grade II listed townhouse has recently been stylishly refurbished and enlarged with great flair and attention to detail by the current owner who is an award winning architect. The property seamlessly blends cutting edge modern style with period charm. Internally the house provides light and interesting accommodation and much care and thought has been given to the original style of the house. The property has many lovely period features including a fireplace in the sitting room, exposed floor boards and sash windows. These features blend with reclaimed fittings which cleverly combine with stunning modern touches including a Nest remote heating system and a superb glazed wall with sliding door to the study.

From the High Street the front door opens into a brick paved passage leading to a small entrance courtyard with bin store and log store. Accessed from the courtyard is the stunning contemporary extension forming the open plan vaulted kitchen, dining room and family room. Clever use has been made of light to create a sense of space and the kitchen is fitted with stainless steel fronted units with polished concrete work surfaces and integrated appliances. The kitchen also includes a Smeg stainless steel range with two ovens and a six-ring gas burner. From the family room glazed doors give access to the enclosed landscaped garden which has a wide decked seating area with built-in seats to one side. Beyond the decked area the garden is lawned with a raised flowerbed to one side.

To the other end of the kitchen is the dining room which has a fully glazed wall and a glazed roof. A cloakroom, good sized study and a sitting room with a pretty fireplace and a further door to the High Street completes the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor there is a spacious principal bedroom with an adjacent dressing room, a further bedroom and a beautifully appointed shower room. The second floor provides a particularly spacious and flexible guest suite comprising bedroom with a freestanding roll top bath, a dressing room/sitting area and a shower room. The basement provides a cinema room and a store room.
