29 Marlborough Road is an attractive characterful townhouse that offers four bedrooms and a courtyard garden in the highly sought-after suburb of St. Leonards. This Victorian terraced property is in a superb condition having been refurbished by the current owners during their 15 year occupation. The end result is a very elegant and comfortable family home with open plan living, double glazing throughout and underfloor heating in the updated first floor bathroom. The owners have also recently spent approximately £15,000 on new double glazed wooden sash windows to the front elevation and have redecorated throughout. There is no shortage of storage at this property with the garden outbuilding, storage in the eaves, the built in Victorian bedroom wardrobes and a large storage area midway between the first and second floors.

A welcoming entrance hall leads through to the 27ft sitting room, which has a large bay window at the front and an impressive castiron fireplace with a tiled surround. Beyond the seating area there is an additional fireplace in an area that could fit a family dining table or be used as an office. The kitchen/diner is towards the rear of the ground floor and has two sets of French doors that open onto the rear garden and overhead skylights that welcome plenty of natural light. The kitchen has terracotta tiled flooring and attractive wooden kitchen units, plus a central island, granite worktops, a stainless steel range cooker and space for all of the necessary appliances.

The first floor has two well-presented double bedrooms both with feature fireplaces and a stylish family bathroom, which has a freestanding bathtub and a separate shower unit. This floor also benefits from a useful storage room. There are two further double bedrooms on the second floor including the principal bedroom which also has an en suite shower room. The property is offered for sale chain free.
