The house was built circa early 1900s and is of stone/brick construction under a pitched slated roof. This substantial house has an impressive red sandstone front elevation. The house has recently undergone a programme of improvements and the end result is a superbly presented and very spacious 5 apartment house. The improvements works undertaken over the last 18 months comprise rewiring; the central heating system serviced and overhauled; new kitchen; new bathroom; new interior plasterwork; insulation in the loft (to 300mm); remodelling of the rear garden area. Coupled with these improvements the house is presented in immaculate decorative order with new carpets and floor coverings throughout. Going hand in hand with the recent upgrades are a variety of original period features comprising decorative cornice and centre rose, original doors, skirtings and architraves and elegant staircase with cast iron balustrade and varnished timber handrail.

Windows are predominantly double glazed in uPVC casements with the exception of a new, large Velux window over the stairwell which is polyurethane framed. Central heating is by way of gas. The property is served by high speed fibre broadband connection.
