An imposing Grade II listed town house with versatile accommodation, in the village centre and near to the shore. The distinctive, classic frontage and broad courtyard entrance set the tone for this unique property. An impressively large and well-proportioned sitting room with bay window and a mezzanine area occupies one side of the main house. Adjacent to this is a large living room with a bow window and fireplace, leading through an inner ante room to a utility/cloakroom. From the reception hall steps down to the wine cellar complete the ground floor.
On the first floor a welcoming landing leads, on one side to an elegant drawing room over looking Queen Street, with deep sash windows and high ceilings. The adjacent study looks out on the courtyard. A delightful first floor conservatory bridges across from the landing to the main kitchen and breakfast room, with stairs down to an additional bedroom/sitting room with adjoining kitchenette and bathroom and a door to the side of the courtyard. The second floor of the main house has two double bedrooms, a further single bedroom and a large family bathroom, each with it's own individual charm. From the courtyard a brick archway reveals the private walled rear garden, a discreet sun trap with a vine-covered seating area. Viewing this fascinating property is strongly recommended.
