About the property
St John Street is a popular residential area just off the Broad Street which is a continuation of the High Street. This is a road of period properties and No.9 is a not listed.
The accommodation is far more spacious than the modest and discrete front elevation suggests and the house has really good living space - in and out - and a great deal of character.
The front door opens into a small hall (with a staircase) and a door into the sitting room. This is an 18 ft. room with an engineered oak floor, corner cupboard, shelved alcoves and a door to a lobby/store and the cloakroom with hand basin and wc.
A door also leads from the sitting room into the kitchen/dining room which is light and airy having two windows, two velux roof lights and a stable door to the courtyard. Fittings include storage cupboards with work surfaces, an attractive pine dresser, a two bowl Belfast style sink unit, Bosch cooker with a four ring gas hob, useful shelving, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge freezer.
On the first floor is a landing and a large double bedroom with a walk in clothes hanging area. The bathroom has a hand basin, wc, bath, shower cubicle, storage cupboards and the gas fired central heating boiler.
The stairs rise to the second floor landing and a study area and two more bedrooms.
The gardens of this property are a great bonus. The stable door from the kitchen opens into a communal courtyard which is also approached through a doorway and passageway from St. John Street.
A pathway leads off the courtyard to the sizeable private garden with flowerbeds, lawns, terraced sitting areas, a timber shed and a stone outbuilding. Lots of places to quietly enjoy the sunshine and fresh air!
