From the street the grand Georgian frontage gives you a clue of the wonderful space you are about to enter. The entrance hall is grand with a wonderful staircase to the first floor and Victorian tiles leading you through to the first reception space which is a large recently renovated space with new lime plaster high ceiling, feature fireplace, a feature alcove, two large picture sash windows, wooden floor, oversized skirting and a picture rail, painted in colours selected to reflect the age of the property but still relevant to today. Back into the winding hallway leads you to the entrance to the basement. Thought to be Elizabethan the cloister like cellar has multiple rooms but very low ceilings, is ideal for storage. From the hallway you enter the grand reception room located in the area of the former shop/restaurant, again newly renovated the space newly carpeted is packed with features including the large ‘shop’ window, feature marble fireplace, high ceilings and wonderful ornamental double doors with stained glass leading to a large third reception space, which combined create a huge carpeted entertaining space, the space also contains a feature fireplace, French doors to the garden, wood panelling and a pretty internal window and a door into the hallway. There is also an ornamental roof lantern bathing the room with light. From the third reception room there is an inner hallway, providing a side access to the property, access to the garden and there are two WC’s (former restaurant facilities). Back into the hallway you move into the lovely country style scullery kitchen/breakfast room, with pantry, large utility room leading to a boot room and double doors to the garden. From the hallway up the stairs you come to a wonderful landing with wooden floors. From here there is a nice shower room with Victorian style vanity sink and WC. There are three large double bedrooms all recently renovated with exposed wooden floors with the two bedrooms to the front both having large picture sash windows and the rear bedroom having a lovely view of the garden through a wooden framed Georgian style window. Back into the hallway there is another grand staircase to the second floor where there are two large double bedrooms one with feature fireplace and exposed floorboards the other carpeted with small dormer window and a skylight.
Outside is a wonderful courtyard ideal for alfresco entertaining and dining. There is a two storey outbuilding with a workshop on the ground floor and a wonderful studio space above currently used as a home office. The garden mainly laid to lawn extends back around 80 feet with flower beds, green house and a path through the middle leading to the rear parking area for the property which is accessed from Royston road via a shared access driveway where there is parking for multiple cars and a single garage.
This is a stunning home sympathetically renovated in line with its listed status and amazing local history. A perfect large family home which should be seen to be fully appreciated.
