The property consists of one double bedroom with en suite, a large drawing room fronting onto India Street, a large kitchen/dining room and another bathroom with shower off the hallway. There are 3 stone steps leading from the pavement to the private front door with a final step to enter the apartment itself.
The spectacular grand entrance hall features the original flagstone flooring and has wood panelled walls, it is furnished traditionally and has plenty of space to sit down, remove your shoes and put down those shopping bags!
The very large drawing room is packed with original features including the ornate plaster ceiling, sash windows with shutters and beautiful pitch pine floorboards. The décor is again very traditional yet comfortable with two stunning Chesterfield sofas, reclaimed elm wood furniture and a real effect gas stove which provides both an excellent source of warmth and a comforting centrepiece. Afternoon and evening sun floods the room bringing out the wonderful warm tones of all the natural wood.
The kitchen/dining room has a much more contemporary feel and features a state-of-the-art Porcelinosa kitchen including two drawer dishwashers, oven, ceramic hobs, fridge and microwave oven. A smart TV is cunningly disguised in a dresser and the sofa and dining table and chairs make this an ideal room for cooking and eating meals when not out enjoying the restaurants. Morning light through the large window makes this the perfect spot for breakfast.
The bedroom has a brand-new king-size bed with pocket sprung mattress. There is a built-in wardrobe and modern en-suite bathroom with a bath/shower unit and electrically operated blind for privacy. The bathroom has a heated towel rail and underfloor heating for the cooler months. Noise is never a problem in quiet India Street but the bedroom faces out the back of the property where there is no traffic or pavement, it also benefits from the beauty of the morning light.
There is a small store room opposite the kitchen which houses a freezer and any cleaning products you may require.
An additional top of the range bathroom with shower lies off the hallway opposite the drawing room. This room also benefits from underfloor heating and a heated towel rail and houses a washing machine inside a cleverly concealed utility room.
Both showers have ceiling mounted rain shower heads and the en-suite bath also has an additional flexible shower attachment at tub level.
