AN “elegant” sandstone Victorian villa with impressive views in one of the town’s “most prestigiou­s addresses” has hit the property market.

Looking for offers over £585,000, the family home was built around 1865, contains five bedrooms, and spans a total of 3000 square feet.

The entrance vestibule leads into a reception hall from which the lounge, drawing room, kitchen, office room, and a w/c can be accessed.

Both the lounge and drawing room feature period detailing including the original fireplaces with each having wood burning stoves in place and the drawing room also containing a large box bay window.

The office room is spacious and could be used as an additional sitting room or dining room.

The kitchen can accommodat­e a dining table and chairs and has a tiled floor, range cooker, extensive units, and granite work surfaces.

A large utility room containing built-in storage and plumbing for a washing machine can be accessed from the kitchen.

There is also access from the kitchen through to an annex which spans two floors.

The annex consists of an open plan living room and modern kitchen area and a shower room on the ground floor, with the upstairs featuring a large bedroom.

The annex is fully double glazed and has its own gas fired central heating system.

A staircase from the reception hall leads to an upper landing which gives access to four wellsized double bedrooms as well as the main family bathroom and shower room.

The house features gas fired central heating and the windows are high performanc­e replacemen­t double glazed timber framed units.

Other works renewed the main roof of the house in 2017 and the annex’s room in late 2023.

The front garden is entered through twin stone gate pillars.

A driveway leads up to a gravelled parking area located at the side of the house which can accommodat­e numerous cars and is large enough for boat/caravan storage.

Across from the parking area is a double garage with power, lighting, and a 11kW electric vehicle charge point installed.

The front garden also contains lawns which are enclosed by stone walls and mature hedging.

To the back of the home there is a timber building which is used as a home gym and can be entered through twin patio doors.
