Prospect House is a handsome and imposing period townhouse believed to date from 1840 and has retained many charming features and character typical of the late Regency and early Victorian era including high ceilings, fireplaces, original plaster work and deep skirtings. The property provides elegantly proportioned rooms and a versatile arrangement over three extensive floors with tall sash windows and upper ground floor accommodation enjoying an elevated position to the street and private walled garden to the rear. The attractive and symmetrical façade is set behind wrought-iron railings and two front courtyards which are tiled to a geometric design with steps leading down to a secure bicycle store and separate entrance. Steps lead to the main entrance door and elegant reception hall with decorative arch and wide wooden floorboards. The upper ground floor comprises an impressive dual aspect drawing room with bespoke fitted recess cabinetry and extensive book casing, open fireplace with inset wood burning stove, wooden floorboards and deep skirting boards and a second reception room with a tall sash window to front aspect and double doors opening to a stylish and recently refitted family bathroom with separate WC off. This is a flexible space in total and has often been used as a guest bedroom. The lower ground floor comprises inner hallway with walk-in pantry, a cosy snug/playroom with cast iron fireplace and marble surround and book shelving to both recesses, a large and useful utility room with wash hand basin and steps down to a cellar. The kitchen provides a range of handmade framed low level cabinetry and drawers, solid wood working surfaces and a two oven Aga range. Double concertina doors open to the spacious dining room with feature fireplace with inset wood burning stove, original storage cupboards, sash window and entrance door to the front garden area with steps and bicycle ramp to street level. The upper floor comprises one impressive principal bedroom suite with walk-in wardrobe, two further double bedrooms and a refitted shower room. The charming walled courtyard garden offers split level terracing and raised borders of various established plants and shrubs and a high degree of privacy.
