’Berwick’... Victorian Georgian style with separate studio’Berwick’ is a surprisingly substantial sandstone house of in the Victorian Georgian architectural style with a delightful garden of roses and magnolias flanking the path to the entrance. A lovely timber panelled front door and lightwell opens to an elegant hallway of high ceilings running nearly the length of the house. Fine features include mantelpieces, original double panelled windows with timber shutters and two superb sandstone chimneys. Sunny with a northerly aspect, 2 off street car parks and dual frontage...clever window treatments can easily ensure privacy.
At the rear, there is a light-filled sunny living / dining space adjacent to a separate country style kitchen with a timber lined ceiling in Baltic pine which overlooks a courtyard garden and a self-contained, separately metred studio flat, independent of the main household. Huge potential here to add value, provide extra rental income, operate a home office enterprise STCA... be creative and clad the exterior and transform the ’plain Jane exterior’!
A utility area housing a garden shed offers valuable storage.
The location is first class, conveniently central with landmarks a mere stroll in every direction. Hampden Road village restaurants and eateries are just moments away. Salamanca Place, parkland and the joys of the busy waterfront with the MONA ferry dockside, all within easy walking distance. This is city fringe living at its very best!
