  • Bedrooms: 5
A truly stunning Grade II Listed Georgian town house, meticulously refurbished, with enchanting garden, parking and set only a short walk from the town centre

The property has been lovingly and sensitively restored back to a period family home with careful attention to detail and with an exceptionally high standard of fixtures and fittings. It benefits from all the features that would be expected from the Georgian period having spacious evenly proportioned rooms, classic fireplaces, high ceilings with period coving and large windows with traditional shutters.

The house provides flexible accommodation and whilst it is at present configured to suit the needs of the current owner it lends itself to be easily rearranged to provide up to 5 bedrooms'

The main entrance door opens up into a formal hall with limestone cabochon flooring and traditional stairs with natural wood handrail and spindle banister leading to the various floors above. To the right of the hall is a stunning formal dining room currently elegantly furnished in keeping with the period of the house. The Georgian features of this room together with the traditional marble fireplace set this room off perfectly.

Off the hall is a well-proportioned, bespoke kitchen, hand crafted by a specialist local company. The kitchen has a natural limestone floor with ample wall and base units which have been superbly finished with a black granite worktop. The whole area is illuminated with over, under and plinth level lighting and benefits from high end appliances which include a Falcon range cooker, fridge drawers and integrated Miele dishwasher and fridge. Off the kitchen, divided by a granite topped breakfast bar, is a bright and airy breakfast room with glass lanterned roof and glazed doors leading onto a reclaimed York stone patio with formal garden beyond. The four door panels open fully to bring the room and garden together as one. Adjoining the breakfast room, with access to the hall and door to outside, is a utility room fitted to the same standard and style as the main kitchen. Off the utility room, is a cloakroom which houses a water softener secreted behind the panelling. A door under the main stairs, leads to the large, practical cellar with Cotswold stone flag floor, providing an ideal space for storing fine wines.

The stairs from the hall lead up to an half landing from which a door takes you into a sunroom with oak flooring, feature windows and four glazed doors which open fully onto a period style Juliette balcony with canopy above. From the south facing balcony a late summers evening can be enjoyed overlooking the garden and trees beyond. From this room, stairs lead up to the two rooms on the first floor which the current owner use as a study and sitting room but which could easily be used as further bedrooms.

From the first floor the stairs lead up to another half landing off which is the main bathroom. This room is stunning, with Travertine tiling, Lefroy Brooks fixtures and fittings including a generous sized wet shower area with floor to ceiling Travertine slabs. A double ended 'Albion' bath is positioned under the window offering views across the beautiful garden. From the bathroom, stairs lead up to the second floor where the master and second bedroom can be found.

From this floor a new continuation of the main staircase leads to a beautiful light landing, currently utilised as a practical study area. From here a door leads you into a large bedroom with en-suite bathroom and built in storage cupboards under the eaves. The en-suite bathroom has been finished to the same specification as the main bathroom with double ended bath, Travertine tiling and Lefroy Brooks fixtures and fittings.

The walled south facing garden has been designed in a Georgian style to complement the house. A central rectangular grass area is framed by reclaimed York stone paving with symmetrical boarder planting, and formal box hedges with gravel area to the far end. Tasteful lighting, surrounds the garden and provides a magical atmosphere in the late evenings. A low Cotswold stone wall and step separates the garden from the reclaimed York stone patio which provides an ideal summer outside eating space with easy access to the breakfast room and kitchen.

Watermoor Road is approached via Cricklade Street off the town's Market Place. Continue through the traffic lights passing the almshouses on your right and the property will be seen a short distance down on the right, opposite The Avenue.
