Spread over three storeys, the extensive accommodation is lift serviced and also benefits from a cellar.

Originally understood to be a merchant’s house, the impressive property was more recently used as offices for a firm of international accountants.

A panelled entrance door leads into a wide reception hall, with hardwood floor and original 19th century staircase with mahogany hand rail. There is also a door to the cloakroom.

The drawing room features an original fireplace, deep coving and oversized skirting.
