This unique property is a superb example of 1920's opulent charm. The town centre setting gives way to a tranquil and private oasis where you are transported to a bygone age. A property, which simply must be viewed to appreciate the magic.
The property is spread over 3 levels with the main accommodation on the middle floor. Steps lead up to the beautiful original entrance door, which opens into an elegant hall, with original tiled floor. The hall covers the full length of the house and an identical entrance door can be found at the far end, which leads down into the garden.
The central hall gives onto 4 principle rooms comprising formal salon, with polished wood floors and original full length windows looking over the garden. A door from here leads onto the balcony and to the kitchen
The sejour is to the front of the house and has original tiled floors and beautiful period window overlooking the front garden. There are two bedrooms to the other side of the entrance hall one to the front of the house and one to the rear. Both have period fireplaces, windows and doors and are linked by a shared bathroom in period style. The kitchen is slightly offset from the main rooms and gives on to a very large south facing balcony, which overlooks the entire garden and pool.
The upper floor is reached by a staircase to the side of the main entrance hall. The whole floor is a converted loft with huge open spaces and an abundance of light from the partial atrium roof. The space could be divided in a number of ways but currently has bedrooms, living space and bathroom. It would be possible to create a superb loft apartment on this level.
