Rarely does such a property come onto the market. This magnificent, three bedroom, ground floor flat, in a detached period property is full of breathtaking original features, which are scarcely seen, even in this most sought after of areas. The current owners have been in residence since 1960 and they've lovingly preserved the array of period features from when the original building was constructed at the turn of the last century. Although the flat is in need of modernisation, certain features stand out, including the impressive original Italian painted ceiling and coving, along with the original marble and slate mantelpieces with exquisite coloured tiles. The hallway, kitchen and bathroom boast the beautiful, coloured quarry tiled floors you would expect in a property of this calibre. The internal lobby and entrance hall are separated by an impressive solid mahogany door and panel with engraved glass. To the rear of the entrance hall is the foot of the original mahogany staircase, which is used to rise to the first floor. All rooms are of an extremely generous size. The kitchen has a walk in pantry, where a modern Vaillant combo boiler is situated. The basement/cellar is accessed via stone steps and cast iron handrail. Solid stone shelving is present in one of the rooms and a large storage room for coal is adjacent. There is ample parking for cars to the front of the flat and the substantial private garden to the rear holds yet more delightful surprises, including an original timber summer house and a detached, stone built stable block/garage/potting shed, which could possibly be converted into further living accommodation, subject to planning and building consents. Ideally located within walking distance of Whitchurch Village centre with its many shops and amenities and close to the M4 and A470 motorways. .
