Thought to be built in the late 1600s with a new front added in the 1800s, the property looks unassuming from the outside but the inside is a different story.

The ground floor unit could be used for commercial purposes or as a studio, while spacious bedrooms with exposed wooden beams and a large kitchen and living and dining room areas make up the other three floors.

The property features a shop front on the ground floor

The pitched roof holds a large sitting room with lots of natural light flooding from the dormer windows.

A wooden staircase that goes from the ground to the top floor adds to the historical character of the house bringing to mind days gone by.

There are period fireplaces throughout the house ensuring warmth and comfort during the colder months.

Over four floors, the property features large open spaces such as this living room

There is also an East-facing sunlit garden tucked away in the back, perfect for an outdoor breakfast nook or for throwing summer parties.

Old meets new in the bathrooms and kitchen with stripped wooden floors, contemporary appliances and modern sanitary-ware bringing the house into the 21st century.

The home has a large kitchen area with exposed wooden beams

Anyone purchasing the property would join a street full of contemporary independent shops, galleries, theatres, studios and workshops.

In a description by Hopewell Estate Agents, the firm said: “It is a privilege to be instructed to find a discerning purchaser for this very special property.”
