  • Bedrooms: 5
Built in 1872 this four storey semi detached property is currently a comfortable family home but, as you might imagine from its age, it has been through several transformations. It began life as the home of a local newspaper proprietor until World War I when it housed two related Belgian refugee families (eighteen people in total). After that it was owned by Frank Willoughby Cotton, famous for Cotton motorcycles, and then by a builder who bought the adjoining land and built eight detached houses. At one stage it was split into four flats and it has also been used for bed and breakfast.

The top three floors comprise lounge, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility/cloakroom, five/six double bedrooms, two ensuites, a separate bathroom and a first floor cloakroom. The ground and first floor rooms have high ceilings several of which are corniced and have central ceiling roses. The lower ground floor, which is accessible from the interior of the building but could easily be converted to a one bedroomed self-contained flat with external access from the rear of the property, comprises living room with kitchen units, study/dining area, cloakroom, bedroom, bathroom, storage room and a cupboard with plumbing for a washing machine. The property already has two separate central heating systems and electricity consumer units and is double glazed throughout.

There is parking for several vehicles on the front drive and more parking at the rear where there is a double garage that is accessed from Waverley Road. The mature garden contains several trees, shrubs and borders, two lawns, a clematis covered pergola with swing bench, a small patio, a small vegetable area and a greenhouse.
