The three bedroom house for sale in Comely Bank

Approached through a private front garden, the house is entered via the hall, leading to the elegant curved staircase which is flooded with light due to the cupola. These classic Georgian features are indicative of the period charm that is evident throughout the property. Original wooden floors, working shutters, delicate cornicing work and handsome fireplaces are among the lovely architectural elements on show.

On the ground floor is a reception room with a beautiful curved rear wall and two sash windows. The kitchen is to the rear of the house and will need to be completed by the new owner, providing the opportunity to have a kitchen that suits their taste. From here, there is access to the utility room and on to the garden. There is a large larder cupboard to the rear of the kitchen. Also on the ground floor is a double bedroom and store cupboard off the hall.

An elegant living space

Upstairs the drawing room runs the full width of the front of the house with three south facing windows which provide wonderful natural light. This elegant room is ideal for entertaining and has been beautifully finished. There are two double bedrooms looking on to the garden, both serviced by the bathroom. Also on this floor is a box room which is useful as a study or for additional storage.

Outside there is a large private walled garden which leads through to the private parking and the lane. There is a garden store attached to the back of the house.

The house was built in 1817 to designs of Thomas Brown.
