No.38 Represents a very rare opportunity to acquire a distinctive period home in a quiet, near central city location. Additions over the last 5 years include double glazed sash windows, wooden floors, carpets and a new roof.
The accommodation briefly comprises 2 reception rooms, the first currently serving as a study and benefitting from a dual aspect, coupled with a cast iron fireplace. The living room has a striking inset living flame fire and offers pleasant views over St Matthew’s Piece. Of particular note is the property’s impressive vaulted kitchen/breakfast room with 4 Velux windows and a completely glazed rear elevation including French doors to the private rear garden. The kitchen has been fitted with a contemporary range of units and is finished with Corian worktops; integrated appliances include a dishwasher, oven and 6-ring gas hob with extractor over. There is also a freestanding American-style fridge/freezer and washing machine included within the sale. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a stylish utility/shower room with a wash hand basin and W.C.
Upstairs are 2 double bedrooms, the master bedroom benefitting from a dual aspect and built-in shelving. The second bedroom has been designed as a child’s room yet offers versatility to suit individual purchasers’ needs. There is a bespoke desk/homework area with ladder over, leading to a smart mezzanine area, ideal for a second child or sleep-overs. The landing has a built-in cupboard and provides access to a boarded loft. The first-floor bathroom has been fitted with a beautiful modern white suite, complemented by recessed shelving, inset spotlights and a heated towel rail.
Outside the property is set back from Petworth Street behind a retaining front and side wall. The private rear garden has been designed for ease of maintenance and has a large decking area, the remainder has been paved and there is a useful brick-built store at the foot of the garden. The side boundary is mostly walled and has a fence and secure side gate leading onto Sturton Street.
The charm, condition and individuality of this exceptional Victorian home demands an early viewing.
