The property is situated in a highly sought after location within the ring road and close to the city centre and mainline station to Waterloo. The house dates from about 1870 and still retains most of its character features including cast iron and tiled fireplaces, high ceilings, ornate staircase, feature arches, doors and door furniture. The upper floor front windows have an uninterrupted view of the cathedral. There is a larger than average rear garden split into two areas facing east and south. The width of the garden also gives tremendous potential to further extend and there is also the potential to alter the existing accommodation to create a fabulous family home. Gas central heating has been installed and the windows are double glazed. A further benefit for city centre living is the garage and parking space. The property has cavity wall insulation and solar panels for hot water. The space and layout creates an opportunity for a self-contained annexe or home office. Vacant possession is offered.

The garden is enclosed by timber fencing and there are two storage sheds, outside tap and dustbin area. There is also an outside light.


Mains gas, water, electricity and drainage are connected to the property.
