Only on rare occasions is a piece of architectural treasure made available for sale within the Bridge Street Conservation Area. Especially when considering the size, scale and history attached to this quite stunning Georgian property. Protected by Grade ll status and listed accordingly as a property of both historical and architectural interest our client has treated their tenure as a labour of love by creating a beautiful home, full of period features with a clear eye for sympathetic modernisation.
Each individual room has its own particular charm and character, but what is perhaps most striking is how all these different areas come together in a unique way, reinforcing the endearing quirks and features to be found throughout all three floors. No doubt the central staircase has an important part to play in how well the accommodation flows around a central hub, both in terms of reception space and bedroom accommodation.
The ground floor reception areas are perhaps where the Georgian origins are most strongly felt and combine seamlessly with later additions. Fireplaces, high ceilings and picture windows are evident in all three main reception rooms, but are particularly notable in both the morning room centred around a deep inglenook fire and in the drawing room where a very imposing solid stone surround provides a touch of grandeur. Georgian architects were clearly not frightened of light and this theme has been embraced by our client to enhance the natural light making the most of the southerly aspect along the rear elevation and garden via double doors at several points.
The first floor is equally intriguing where it is possible to circulate through the bedrooms around the central staircase. Views over the garden from the main bedroom are simply stunning through full height and opening casement doors that combine beautifully with a vaulted ceiling and an en-suite shower room. A further and sizable family bathroom suite is fitted with a claw-foot bath and walk-in shower servicing the remaining bedrooms - equalling six bedrooms in total between the first and second floor.
