Welcome to Dresden House. Dating back from approximately 1840 this grand period detached townhouse has been renovated beautifully by the current owner. The work has been completed to retain the stunning internal and external features whilst making it perfectly suited to modern living demands. It is well set back from the road courtesy of an expansive front garden which is only bettered by the wonderful rear garden which is being expertly landscaped. There is a great deal of flexibility in the property but it has worked well using the lower ground floor as a self-contained annexe with its own external entrance points. This features a lounge, two double bedrooms, a dining kitchen and a shower room. The remainder of the house is set on a further three floors with three receptions, a breakfast kitchen and cloakroom on the ground floor. There are four double bedrooms upstairs including the master with en-suite, all supplemented by a family bathroom. A useful loft room offers another potential bedroom or hobby space.
