6 Bedroom Mid-Terraced House For Sale

A fine Georgian townhouse that has undergone a major and comprehensive repair and restoration program in the centre of the County Town.
Five bedrooms, three reception rooms, two bathrooms and shower room. One bedroom garden flat. South facing walled garden. Garage and shop.

28 High West Street (Grade II listed no 1218844) is presumed to have been built in 1815 at the same time as its mirror twin no 29. The deeds of 29 record that it was built that year by Lord Ilchester’s builders for a solicitor and his family.

Over the last five years the building has undergone a major and comprehensive repair and restoration programme that has returned it to residential use.

The typically generous room sizes of the Georgian period, along with the moulded cornicing, feature fireplaces, sash windows and high ceilings create a delightful house.
