Property SummaryMount Carmel is simply divine, she has retained all her original features and charm, the sense of space is refreshing and because it is south facing there is an immense amount of light coming in – every window to the front has a view. Mount Carmel was built in 1850 circa for the Royal Admiralty – it is an end of terrace house (of three) with a side garden, parking area and front south facing garden overlooking the harbour. You drive in from Lake Road but you also have the luxury of a pedestrian access from the High Road. The location is ideal for a family as you are near all amenities – such as the schools, tennis club, sailing club, train station and of course the town itself.
One of the main features of Mount Carmel is the size and portion of the rooms. The house is set on 4 floors including a basement with access to the side and rear courtyard. The house is measuring approx. 3300sq.ft. One has a small rear garden, plenty of parking and a lovely front garden enjoying the superb vista.
Accommodation briefly consists of – ground floor - entrance tiled hall, 2 reception rooms ( original fireplaces and pitch pine floor boards – one of these rooms is used as the kitchen), access to the basement via stairs – 2 big rooms, hallway and a storage room, on the return is a landing area, first floor consists of 3 double bedrooms ( one en-suite) and the main bathroom. Second floor – 2 double bedrooms, bathroom and airing cupboard.
Features include – working shutters, original sash single glazed windows, pitch pine floorboards, original fireplaces, cornicing and even the servant’s bells are in place in the basement.
Although the house is in good condition – it still offers oddles of potential for one to make it their own. Great house for a growing family and set in a cul de sac so extremely safe.
Such a nice house and well worth viewing – it ticks all the boxes.
