Property description

An imposing and substantial Grade II listed Georgian townhouse with earlier origins providing extensive accommodation arranged over three floors within walking distance of the town centre.

There is an impressive entrance hall with some fine 'Arts & Crafts' features which include an oak arch set upon fluted columns complemented by panelling to dado height. The principal reception room is situated to the front of the property and has typically elegant Georgian proportions with fine period detailing to include cornicing, skirting boards and an attractive carved marble fire surround. The inner hall has an attractive Georgian staircase with mahogany handrail and plain spindles leading to the first and second floors.

A delightful dining room is situated behind the drawing room which has full height shuttered French windows leading to the courtyard with the garden beyond. There is a range of built-in cupboards and shelving along with a carved wooden fire surround. The cellar can be accessed from the hall as can the rear courtyard by a further glazed and panelled door. Just beyond the dining room is the butlers pantry with its original brick floor, storage units and a sink unit. The snug has a red brick fireplace and brick hearth and panelling to dado height with exposed ceiling timbers. A ledge and brace door then leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room which is equipped with a range of oak units with integral appliances to include an oven and gas hob. A second staircase rises from the kitchen to the first floor. The aforementioned cellar is accessed via the inner hall and has its original brick flooring and provides useful storage space.

The principal bedroom is particularly impressive with two sets of Georgian sash windows taking in views to Bradford Street and has an impressive fireplace with marble surround, intricate cornicing and deep moulded skirting boards.

The first floor comprises four further bedrooms all of which display fine period detailing to include exposed ceiling timbers, panelled doors, sash windows and fireplaces. There is a particularly large family bathroom and a further separate cloakroom on the first floor.

The stairs rise to a further galleried landing on the second floor which takes in fine views of the architecture in Bradford Street. There are four bedrooms on this floor again displaying period features throughout, some of which have been utilised as bedsits and as a net result have kitchen facilities. A shower room serves these bedrooms and a door leads to attic/storage space.

The property can be approached via its main entrance from Bradford Street or alternatively there is extensive parking to the side of the property which can be entered from an adjacent cul-de-sac and this is flanked by dwarf red brick walling and a raised planter to provide year round interest. A rear door accesses the kitchen from this parking space and there is an outside cloakroom and storage shed. There is parking in front of the detached single garage which is equipped with power and light.

The rear gardens benefit from a South and Westerly aspect and provide a high degree of privacy and comprise expanses of lawn which are flanked by a pergola set upon brick piers which provides a covered outside entertaining area. Steps lead to an inner courtyard flanked by raised brick planters stocked with a variety of shrubs and herbs. This courtyard can be accessed by French doors from the dining room and a door to the inner lobby.

It would be fair to say The Bawn offers a unique opportunity to acquire a substantial property enjoying a favourable location within this part of the town which has formerly been used as a house of multiple occupation and now offers opportunity for a variety of uses subject to the necessary planning consents.
