Description

This truly unique five-bedroom, B-Listed Victorian terraced townhouse, originally built as a combined residence and bank agency, dating from 1845, it was converted to full residential use in 1880 and has been a versatile and practical family home ever since. It boasts exceptionally spacious, versatile living accommodation, and a wealth of period features, in addition to a large, enclosed, south-facing, private walled garden. It occupies a prime position in the centre of this historic conservation village, with an enviable outlook over Falkland Palace Gatehouse.
The impressive arched shared entrance leads, via a vestibule and private inner door, to the imposing reception hallway, offering a first glimpse of the array of period features within this magnificent property. From here, doors flow to two inner hallways, whilst a wide staircase, lit by a spectacular four paned mullioned window, curves upwards to the first floor.
The formal ground-floor dining room, richly decorated, includes an ornate period cornice and dado rail, deep set triple windows, and a feature fireplace. Situated to the rear, with a dual-aspect garden outlook and a skylight, is the traditionally styled dining kitchen. A terracotta tiled floor perfectly frames a spacious dining area, offering ample space for large family gatherings. The country-style wood cabinets, with a contrasting tiled worktop, incorporate space for a gas fired Rayburn, a further cooker, and freestanding appliances. Set at the rear are two utility rooms, one an ideal separate laundry, and one a workshop or craft room, with a door out to the rear garden. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a handy study, a large, walk-in storeroom, and a cloakroom with WC.
On first floor, the formal drawing room enjoys a front facing outlook framed by two triple windows, and further boasts intricate cornicework, and an open fireplace, giving rise to a cosy yet elegant ambience and a fabulous space for formal entertaining. The generous neighbouring room, with its focal open fireplace, is ideal as a family room or could be used as a fifth bedroom. The property boasts a further four generously proportioned double bedrooms. The impressive master bedroom has a deep front facing bay window creating a perfect, private seating area – and a luxurious walk-in dressing room, plus delightful period features including ornate ceiling plaster work. All share a spacious, traditionally styled four-piece family bathroom, including a bath and separate shower cubicle. Finally, gas central heating ensures year-round comfort.
Outside, the extensive, private, south-facing walled gardens, landscaped with a lawn, bordered by mature shrubs and trees, offers a wonderful, enclosed outdoor family space. On street parking is available adjacent to the property.
Extras: All fitted floor coverings, light fittings, curtains, blinds, and integrated appliances are included in the sale. The freestanding white goods are available by separate negotiation. EPC Rating – F
