This “One of a kind” property has to be seen to be fully appreciated. On entering the building, one is immediately struck by the style and grandeur of the property, as the communal staircase wraps around the large hallway and ascends to a galleried landing which arrives solely at the entrance to apartment 6.
The front door opens to a reception hallway with access to the well-appointed open plan kitchen, as well as a doorway to the dual aspect dining room with a beautiful fireplace and surround. A step ascends to the large sitting room which has a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams with Velux windows as well as a further leaded and stained-glass windows to the rear aspect with teasing woodland views.
The master bedroom is generous in size and is accessed via the hallway, and benefits from an exquisitely finished ensuite and dressing area.
There are two further bedrooms with an abundance of character. One with dual aspect leaded stained glass windows, that is currently used as a peaceful study. On the second floor, boasting a small walk in wardrobe, the third bedroom is set within the vaulted ceiling and exposed beams creating an atmospheric ambiance.
The upper floor affords access to a roof terrace, yet another key attribute of this distinctive property, which opens to the outside world on the original turret. Enclosed by a castellated stone wall with wrought iron handrail it boasts breath-taking unencumbered far reaching panoramic views and total privacy.
The property benefits from a private detached car port with space for one vehicle. Guests may park temporarily on a first come first served basis.
