Reached via an impressive set of granite steps, No. 3 New Cabra Road is a beautiful period residence dating from 1830. It is a rare opportunity to purchase a double fronted Georgian building which has been sympathetically restored to offer fabulously proportioned, light filled rooms synonymous with the Georgian era. The property has the benefit of a separate two bedroom garden level apartment which currently offers a lucrative income but could easily be incorporated into the main house if further family accommodation is required. Many of the original features have been retained and blend seamlessly with every possible modern comfort. Many of the rooms are dual aspect which fills the house with natural light, together with high ceilings gives an incredible sense of space.
A fan-lit front door opens into a large elegant hallway, to the right there is the main living room with a beautiful grey marble fireplace and dual aspect windows. To the left of the hallway is the kitchen, a fine room with ample space for a dining table. The kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of high quality floor and wall units with a large island. Steps lead from the kitchen to a family sitting room, with dual aspect windows. A useful utility room is reached off the kitchen. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, the main room is magnificent with high ceiling, beautiful polished wooden floor and lavishly appointed en suite bathroom with egg shaped bath. The other two bedrooms are both doubles with the bonus of a home office/ study to the front of the house. A very large family bathroom completes the accommodation at hall and first floor level.
The garden level is currently laid out as a separate apartment and comprises a livingroom/ dining room, kitchen, two double bedrooms and a shower room. The décor here is stylish and modern with features including under floor heating.
To the front there is a pretty railed garden while to the rear the city garden offers off street parking via an electric roller gate.
