This very attractive Grade II Listed two storey property forms part of a notable late 18th Century town house which is now home to five private residences, each unique in their layout and design. On entering, you are immediately struck by the apartment’s stylish elegance, and as you explore further, you find a “wow” around every corner. The high ceiling, character features and light in the main reception room, beautiful country style kitchen, high spec bathrooms and luxury principal bedroom suite all combine to offer something really special. Although all of the many amenities in this thriving town are within walking distance, there is a single en-bloc garage where you can keep a car for exploration of the glorious surrounding countryside, villages and coast, which is only a short drive away. This property also benefits from a private garden area with shed. Whilst this property makes a wonderful permanent home, it would also make an ideal second home or “lock up and leave” property. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate all this unique apartment has to offer.

This stunning, light room, with its beautiful open fireplace, high ceiling, cornicing and large bay window to the front giving views over the garden, is currently set up as a sitting room cum dining room. Its spacious dimensions mean that there is plenty of space for its dual purpose and would also support a study area too if desired.
