19th Century Dolls House
A rare opportunity to acquire a substantial detached double-fronted Victorian villa. Originally built from scratch by a highly skilled craftsman, possibly estate workers from a large country house, and having recently undergone a programme of conservation restoration, the property retains many original features such as metal guttering, downpipes and leadwork to the roof along with metal framed French windows opening on to a generous balcony spanning the full width of the of the stucco facade.
The original polished mahogany front door features period leaded and stained glass opens into a spacious entrance hall. To the right, the drawing room features wooden floorboards, deep skirting boards, bay window and generous coving and central rose detailing to the ceiling. The original Carara marble chimneypiece with original cast iron insert, fender and brass detailing.
Across the hallway the dining room benefits from a full height bay window, wooden floorboards, deep skirting and traditional cornicing. Down the hallway at the rear of the house is the kitchen with original cooking range and benefiting from ample storage within the original built-in larder.
The staircase rises past the arched landing window onward to two spacious double bedrooms, both benefitting from direct access onto the balcony, wooden floorboards, deep skirting boards, cast iron fireplaces and plaster ceiling roses and cornicing.
