An attractive cast iron balcony runs the width of the front of the house on the first floor and there are cast iron railings at street level. The panelled front door leads through into the impressive and welcoming entrance hall which instantly provides a wonderful sense of space and has a beautiful tiled floor and a part glazed door which gives views and access to the rear garden.

From the study a door within the mural opens to a kitchenette. A cloakroom completes the first floor accommodation which can also be approached via a separate entrance with stairs from street level. Arranged over the second and third floors is the principal bedroom, guest bedroom, bedroom three/dressing room, shower room, two further bedrooms and a box room. The lower ground floor has the potential to provide great flexibility as it has separate access from Albion Street.

Features within the house include some particularly high ceilings, lovely panelled doors, picture rails, an elegant wide turned staircase and beautiful sash windows.

Climbing the rear elevation of the house and part of the garden wall are mature roses. Immediately adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room is a small paved courtyard with a timber garden store to one side. A wooden pedestrian door leads through the garden wall into East Street.
