Details :
Victorian town house with beautifully preserved original features. Since the land was originally acquired by local coal merchant Mr Paddock who built the house in 1881 and sold it to a Mr Milo Turner for the princely sum of andpound;213 10 shillings and six pence in 1882 this property has had just two owners, which is possibly part of the reason why the original features are so well preserved. Have no doubt though that this is a thoroughly modern house with every concession to twenty-first century living featuring spacious, beautifully appointed accommodation. There are two formal reception rooms, bespoke period style kitchen with adjoining breakfast area, four bedrooms, study and a sumptuous bathroom.
