Property Summary

Maddox House is one of two houses built in 1831, and listed Grade II for ’its special architectural interest as a fine late classical pair in a good group leading out of town’. Houses in this row are always sought-after due to their convenient location, spacious interiors, gardens running down to the river with lovely views beyond. It has been much loved but now sadly too large for our client’s needs. It is entered beneath a shared portico from a wide flagstone area through a solid front door into a long hall which is dominated by the classic mahogany handrailed staircase. Period features abound and include large sash windows, decorative coving and plasterwork, fine fireplaces and panelled doors. The sitting room is particularly impressive with bookcases either side of the fireplace with an inset log burner, whilst the kitchen beyond overlooks the terrace to the rear and has a range of fitted units. Beyond is the garden room which makes an excellent breakfast room. The stairs are well lit from a large skylight. On the first floor there are two well-proportioned bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room. Continuing up to the second floor are two further bedrooms and a bathroom. Of particular interest is the basement with its flagstone floors and the former kitchen and scullery. This has enormous potential. Doors lead to the front vaulted fuel store, and to the rear workshop and storeroom.

Step Outside
The long gardens are to the rear where a flagstone terrace with cast-iron railings makes a delightful outside dining area. Steps lead down to the first lawn flanked by stone brick walls, herbaceous beds and pathway. This continues down steps to the lower lawns dotted with trees and shrubs, and on to the river.

There is room for one car to be parked immediately in front of the house. On-street parking is all around, but there is a totally separate garage and studio across from the house which could be available by separate negotiation.
