About the Property
Dating from 1855, Maybank is an excellent example of the Victorian period and we are delighted to offer it for sale on the open market. Enjoying an ideal and highly convenient West End location, it is an easy walk to anywhere in the town and the elevated position shelters the house and garden from street noise.
The perfect family package is offered with this wonderful family home and the range and versatility of the extensive accommodation provided will cater for most, if not all, needs.
The accommodation, which is spread over 4 floors has an easy and comfortable flow with great balance and symmetry with 3 bedrooms on the first floor and 3 bedrooms on the second. It is imperative for any interested parties to have an internal viewing to fully appreciate the extent and quality on offer.
Of particular note is the wealth of beautiful features, not least the delicate rose garland on the Lounge ceiling, all the cornice work, lovely natural wood floors and the stairwell with bannister which winds its way up the centre of the house.
In addition to the ground, first and second floors, there is also a large basement which has been used as a family games room plus a shower room on the half landing between the first and second floors.
Externally, Maybank enjoys a south facing aspect on Academy Street with a large garage and off street parking at the foot of the garden.
