An extremely attractive double fronted Georgian terraced house dating back to c.1790 located on this desirable residential street, just a short walk from Beechwood LUAS and benefiting from a wonderful approx. 125 ft west facing garden. In addition no. 20 comes with planning permission for a substantial garden level extension which would bring to total size up to approx. 183 sq. m / 1,969 sq. ft. (planning ref: 4012/21).
Set back behind wrought iron railings, the pretty hall door with fanlight is approached via a sandstone path flanked by gravel and mature shrubbery. Presently extending to approx. 131 sq. m / 1,410 sq. ft. over three floors, the accommodation briefly comprises an entrance hall to the left of which is a dual aspect drawing room with gas fire and views over the back garden. To the right is a formal dining room with feature fireplace, leading through to the fitted kitchen breakfast room opening onto the west facing back garden. There are three spacious double bedrooms on the first floor (one en-suite) and a family bathroom. There is an abundance of fitted wardrobes throughout and the addition of a home office / study on the second return. A downstairs guest WC completes the accommodation. No. 20 is a very appealing city residence which would benefit from some modernisation, although could be occupied by new owners immediately as required.
The expansive rear garden benefits from a desirable westerly orientation and is laid out with a paved patio to the rear of the house, ideal for alfresco dining and a long expanse of lawn with a number of mature shrubs and fruit trees. The garden extends to approx. 38 m / 125 ft. and benefits from a former outhouse now in use as a shed.
