An extremely rare opportunity to acquire a totally refurbished & beautifully presented semi detached house on Worcester Crescent, a wonderfully quiet & leafy enclave just off College Road and a stone's throw from the stunning & genteel landscape of the Clifton College playing fields.
Built Circa 1865, this elegant period home has been lovingly restored to exceptional standards incorporating original features with the latest technology and generously proportioned principal rooms with high ceilings, sash windows & an impressive double height entrance hall. This warm and inviting home is arranged over four floors with a self contained garden flat with its own separate kitchen, very large reception room, and two double bedrooms.
The property is approached across a level lawned garden with mature trees & plants and a newly laid path with a short flight of stone steps leading to the front door. The generous rear garden has gated vehicular access from Clifton Park Road providing access to a detached garage, and is bounded by a natural stone wall.
The residents of Worcester Crescent also benefit for the use of a private central communal garden.
Viewing of this impressive town house is essential to appreciate the standard of workmanship throughout.

An outer lobby leads into the most striking hall with double height ceilings and imposing sweeping staircase to the upper levels. An open plan kitchen/dining room, beautifully designed with wood units, granite worktops, large island, 4 Oven Gas Aga and bay window looks out on to the generous front garden which is almost exactly east facing and bathes the room in morning light. The view from here to the private communal garden and variety of established trees is truly special & hard to imagine you are on the edge of a vibrant city. The main reception room is to the rear of the house and enjoys the evening sun through a pair of sash windows, and sits next to a study with bespoke floor to ceiling cabinets and bookcases. A door from the hallway leads to a w.c., and further cupboards housing the boiler & white goods with a half glazed door to the rear garden.
Accessed via an independent front door, this would make a wonderful office, guest accommodation, home for dependent relative, or be income producing. An entrance lobby benefits from a large walk in storage room with wall mounted bike racks and leads into an inner hallway, two double bedrooms overlooking the rear garden, fitted bathroom with large separate shower, beautifully appointed kitchen with dark units, Corian worktops, large island, separate utility room, and a very impressive reception/dining room.

Generous gardens surround the house on three sides, mostly laid to lawn, but with established trees, a variety of plants and shrubs with a newly laid pathway from front to rear, and beds for a kitchen garden. Almost exactly east/west facing this garden enjoys sunlight for most of the day and sets to the rear of house in the evenings where double gates from Clifton Park Road allow access to the garage.
