The Property:

Former Barracks dormitory, dating back to the mid-19th century, creatively converted to provide stylish City living in this prestigious address. Offered for sale in outstanding condition, this striking home boasts accommodation which fuses timeless character with modern decorative style. It enjoys a wonderful amount of natural light thanks to its southerly aspect, high ceilings and large sash windows. The entrance hall immediately sets the tone; a spacious yet practical area home to an impressive turning staircase rising to the first floor with two large cupboards beneath. The kitchen lies to the front, a perfect arrangement of modern units with solid wood worksurfaces. The sitting room is a magnificent room with a range of bespoke hand-made bookshelves and cabinetry, a recessed gas fire, ornate ceiling cornices and remote mood lighting. Numerous large windows and a glazed door to the rear garden flood the room with light. The first floor is home to a galleried landing which has a unique and clever feature suitable for use as a dressing table or desk. Two bedrooms both overlook the private garden and park beyond; the master boasting a clever en-suite shower room, with the second bedroom home to a wealth of fitted wardrobes and storage. There is also a lovely family bathroom. The property offers a wider-than-average garden thanks to its position at the end of the terrace. Arguably the most salient benefit is the two allocated parking spaces alongside the house. A secluded landscaped garden provides an ideal place to relax, with established landscaping, mature shrubs, side access gate and boundary wall.
