A sympathetically renovated Grade II listed property with an additional one-bedroom annexe house, off road parking and gardens.
3 Northwick Terrace has, along with the annexe house, been the subject of extensive restoration works and now provides beautifully presented accommodation with some glorious views.
The main house
The property can be approached either on foot, through the lawned front garden, or via the vehicular access from Greenway Road. The description is based on approaching the property from the front garden where a doorway leads from the raised patio area into the drawing room where there are windows to the front and a feature working fireplace. This then flows through into the kitchen/dining room where there are defined cooking and seating areas with the kitchen area having a range of base level units with wooden work tops over and space for a variety of appliances. A pedestrian door leads out to the rear, gravelled shared access driveway (as approached from Greenway Road) with the annexe house being directly opposite.
From the drawing room a staircase leads down into the basement room. A further small hallway to the rear of drawing room (and also accessed directly from the kitchen)
leads to the downstairs WC and the staircase to the upper floors.
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, the largest of which has outstanding views and is used by the vendor as the principal bedroom, into along with a substantial bathroom which provides a deep roll top bath, separate shower, WC and hand basin.
A further staircase leads to the second floor where a further double bedroom and en-suite shower room wil be found. This is currently used by the vendor as an office and benefits from a large built-in wooden desk, maximising the stunning views.
The annexe house
Affectionately known to the vendor as 'The House of Joy' the property has accommodation over two levels. The ground floor is approached over the gravelled driveway, and on into the sitting room where there is a wood burning stove, the original bakehouse oven, exposed stonework and a stone staircase up to the first floor. The kitchen provides a good range of wall and base level units with a fitted gas hob and electric oven and integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.
The double bedroom is vaulted and partially galleried with a doorway through to the en-suite bathroom which provides a roll top bath, separate shower, WC and hand basin.
There is a long, lawned garden to the front of the main house and to the rear there is a small garage and off road parking space with steps leading up to a further small area of lawn and the old privy/pig sties.
Beyound the privy/pig sties is a further area of lawn that is owned jointly by the owner and several of the other terrace owners under a trust arrangement. It was purchased to avoid its development and is used by the terrace occupants as a community facility.
