Property SummaryHive of activity during the day and lights like a jewel box at night time springs to mind while I enjoy the spectacular south facing harbour views. Ardmore is perched up high on Lake Road ensuring that you are capturing the best views.
Built in 1890 or thereabouts, Ardmore has been completely restored to perfection, there is literally nothing more that can be done. Every inch of the site and house has been maximised. Approached via steps and parking on the road does not hamper the house at all as the view, décor and garden make up for it.
The house itself is a 2 storey 3 bedroom semi-detached period residence with a large patio to the front, sunroom and a tiered garden to the rear, complete with 2 more patio areas, summer house, dog run, outside toilet and laundry room. As the you go higher in the garden the view gets better so your view is never lost.
Attention to detail is superb – plantation shutters throughout, original fireplaces, ornate coving, double glazed PVC sash windows, radiator covers, décor including wallpaper, fabric for the curtains, carpet, stove, panelling, original front door, half door from the kitchen to the courtyard and many more.
On approach you have a good size sunroom which in turn leads to the entrance hall, 2 reception rooms (one with a bay window) and original fireplaces, storage room to the side of the kitchen, breakfast room with a stove, fitted kitchen with half door to the rear courtyard where you have a brand new outside WC and utility room. Upstairs there are 3 big bedrooms (2 to the front and 1 to the rear) and the main bathroom with a shower. There is oil central heating and the sewerage is on mains.
Location wise it is ideal – so near everything – the schools, tennis club, sailing club, train station (at the bottom of the hill) and the town itself. You can walk everywhere. Always plenty of parking on the road.
Superb house, a must to see and a great buy.
