COMPLETELY REFURBISHED THROUGHOUT, THIS GEORGIAN PERIOD TOWNHOUSE HAS A STYLISH AND RELAXED VIBE
Positioned in a highly sought after residential street is this attractive two (three) bedroom Georgian townhouse which has undergone a complete yet sensitive renovation by its landlord.

Additionally there is a ground floor Cloakroom and useful storage.
The property has been thoroughly refurbished behind the scenes, with completely modernised electric and plumbing systems – lighting has played an important role in the overall design of the space and carefully curated approach to design and fittings from light switches to paired back decorating that showcases original period features.
