An individual detached house built in 1963 and in the same ownership ever since. Offered for sale with no onward chain the property offers family sized accommodation that has been refurbished in recent years with considerable scope for further extension (stpp). A great position with some lovely, far reaching views.
A tiled entrance hall has stairs to the first floor with doors off to a ground floor W.C. and cloakroom with a door straight ahead into the sitting room and door into the kitchen. The kitchen was re-fitted in 2018 and has a range of wood wall and base units and a bespoke oak dresser unit. Within the units there is a halogen hob and electric oven/combination microwave as well as an integrated dishwasher and fridge. In addition there is a built-in larder cupboard and further cupboard with a side door leading outside. To the rear there is a sitting room with large feature fireplace with wood burning stove inset with an archway leading to a large family room with a double aspect and opening onto a terrace to both the rear and the side. This is a later extension to the main house and provides a very generous reception room with access into the dining room. A lobby leads into a wet room with walk-in shower and access into a store/potential home office. This would make an ideal home office or ground floor bedroom.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms (all enjoying lovely views) and a bathroom with a shower over the bath and an airing cupboard.
Underfloor electric heating to the tiled ground floor and night storage heaters to the first floor (with underfloor heating in the bathroom).
To the front of the property there is a pavered lay-by area giving access to a 5 bar gate into a generous area of hardstanding. Bounded by block and brick walls and panel fencing to the south. Access to either side of the property to the rear garden including a useful overhang area to the north side used for log storage.
The garden to the rear extends to c.80 x 60' (24m x 18.3m) and is mainly laid to lawn with vegetable beds and various soft fruits. A substantial terrace runs to the south and west of the property and overlooks the garden. Two wooden stores. Large summerhouse/studio enjoying a southerly aspect with power and light and a vine covered pergola to the front.

At the very heart of the city is the medieval Cathedral, Bishop’s Palace and Vicars’ Close (reputed to be the oldest surviving residential street in Europe).
