Historic Quay Street really is one of the most elegant roads on the Island and the group of numbers 43-46 is a very pretty early 19th century row. Both the pretty sage green doors to the front belong to number 44 – one is the front door, one leads to the covered side access to the garden. And what a garden – it’s a proper ‘Secret Garden’ with a beautiful wall around. Such a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the town centre. I love it!

Full description

This handsome Grade II listed period town house is set on elegant Quay Street in an historic part of this bustling town. The house retains a wealth of character and charm whilst also being extended and improved to create spacious living areas. Warmed by gas central heating and with pretty sash windows at the front, the home has two reception rooms, a cloakroom and good sized kitchen set at the rear which enjoys pleasant views into the pretty rear garden. The unusual first floor layout currently comprises a library style landing (or bedroom) which links through to a rear hallway with compact single bedroom/dressing room and spacious bathroom off. Access via polished open tread stairs leads up to to a good sized attic room. The very pretty master bedroom is set at the front of the house. The property has a gated and flagstoned covered side access into its stunning walled garden which has outbuildings including a former wash house/utility room which has tremendous potential to convert further.
