11' 1'' x 13' 0'' max (3.38m x 3.96m)
Before even stepping through the front door from the flagstone pavement outside you begin to get the sense of the nostalgia and the history that is encapsulated by this property. The Victorian style glazed shop frontage, characteristic of Paul Street, speaks volumes of what is to be found within.
On entering you are immediately struck by the arched recesses, beset with open fire places and sense of age that is almost tangible throughout the building. Looking beyond the current decorative condition the eagle eyed buyer will be able to see what a fantastic introduction to the property this space could be, whether that be with or without the grand piano that currently resides here!
Kitchen and dining area
19' 3'' x 13' 0'' max (5.86m x 3.96m)
Moving beyond the front reception space to the rear of the ground floor are the kitchen and dining areas, although extended as part of a grant aid project in the 1990s, they are clearly in need of modernisation. That said, the space available is very reasonable and again the eye is drawn to the period features that surround you.
At the very rear is a single door to the rear courtyard garden, whilst stairs to the first floor and the cellar level are accessed form the dining area.
First floor landing
the twisting wooden stairway from the ground floor open out to a small landing providing access to the bathroom and first bedroom. The ancient wooden floorboards give further clues to the age and history of this home and are only a sand and polish away from their gleaming former glory. The timber theme continues as stairs to the second floor continue up from the first floor landing.
11' 1'' x 11' 8'' (3.38m x 3.55m)
Comfortably big enough for a double bed and furniture the character features continue with sash window to the front aspect and open fireplace that could be brought back to life as a stylish focal point of the room.
Briefly comprising of panelled bath with shower over, wash hand basin and low level WC. The bathroom is large enough to accommodate additional fixtures and fittings, and although some modernisation may be the order of the day the suite is perfectly functional in its current guise.
13' 11'' max x 11' 9'' (4.24m x 3.58m)
Tucked quietly up on the top floor this room is of comfortable size even by modern standards, again featuring an open fire begging for a new lease of life. From the sash window to the front we look over Georgian and Victorian rooftops to the town centre with its leafy green backdrop.
A convenient en-suite facility consisting of low level WC and wash hand basin is a worthwhile addition to this level. Plumbing allows for potential to create a master bedroom suite on this floor, capitalising on the fundamentals that are already in situ.
The outside space is compact, but undoubtedly offers room to create a tranquil place of escape from the outside world. Some stone and brick built out house structures are currently in need of some love, but could provide outside storage space or a shaded place to eat, drink and enjoy quiet undisturbed evenings.
13' 7'' x 11' 3'' (4.14m x 3.43m)
Although only used as storage by the present occupier, the cellar provides quite a good sized space that could be incorporated as usable living space given some damp prevention and remedial work that would likely be necessary. That said, there is ample head room and given some time and energy could make a great cinema room, office or workshop.
