The property is offered for sale for the first time since 1997, having been enjoyed and cherished as a longstanding family home. Character-filled accommodation is arranged over five floors and includes some magnificent features of the day including fireplaces, intricate ceiling detail and wonderful sash windows, complete with working shutters. Each level is connected by a most elegant stairwell through a series of mezzanines. Ascension to the first floor allows access to a breathtaking, dual aspect drawing room with three matching sash windows that give access to an elegant balcony, two fireplaces and some ornate ceiling cornicing. The south-facing front elevation attracts an abundance of natural light and sunshine and offers a pleasing outlook over the coveted, central gardens of West Mall. The configuration offers an incoming purchaser true flexibility with a sizeable two-bedroom flat that could produce a healthy rental income, facilitate home working or accommodate a dependent relative as desired. This flat has the benefit of separate access from the lower courtyard at the front and even has a small private courtyard at the rear. The main house has a private, walled, landscaped rear garden measuring about fifteen metres and this incorporates the car parking space behind double gates accessed off Sion Place to the rear. In addition to the privately owned garden, the property also has access to the aforementioned, well-tended central gardens of West Mall that provide a valuable amenity to the West Mall and Caledonia Place community. Lastly, it should be noted that this property is being sold subject to a grant of probate but with no onward chain.

Houses in West Mall are seldomly offered to the market. This sale therefore represents a truly rare opportunity for those that require a well-situated Clifton Village residence adorned with wonderful features from this much celebrated period of such classical architecture.
