An outstanding Grade II Listed Georgian town house offering elegant accommodation arranged over three floors with a detached barn.
Formerly part of The Howard House school in circa 1840, 41 High Street is an exquisite period town house, dating back originally to the mid XVIII century and located within the conservation area of this historic market town.
Constructed of red brick elevations with flared headers in flemish bond, the property has the most charming facade with a front door approached by stone steps and wrought-iron railings. Internally the property enjoys adaptable living arranged over three floors and a large cellar extending to 13’8, in addition there is a substantial detached barn/workshop providing scope to convert into further living space.
On the ground floor an elegant entrance hall with original staircase flows to a large first floor landing with a window, offering a lovely view of the High street and St Mary’s beyond. Further accommodation to the ground floor includes a sitting room with open fireplace, a dining room with bay window overlooking the rear gardens, a kitchen/breakfast room opening to a substantial scullery offering scope to create a fabulous kitchen/dining room.
On the first floor are three bedrooms and a bathroom, with a further bedroom to the second floor. .
Externally a particular attribute of this fine house are the stunning gardens, extending to approximately 90’ in length and bordered by an original brick retaining wall. The garden is laid predominantly to lawn with a mixture of mature trees and shrubs. The garden has two terraces, one directly to the rear of the house and a second to the rear of the garden. A substantial detached barn/garage is located at the foot of the garden, opening out to Brook Lane for potential off street parking. The barn extends to an impressive 743 sq.ft lending for conversion into a potential annexe or home office with garaging (subject to necessary consents).
In our opinion this is a very unique opportunity to acquire one of the town’s magnificent period houses, offering a substantial formal garden and a very interesting detached barn.
