REA Stokes and Quirke are delighted to bring to the market this perfectly preserved and lovingly restored Victorian house which is conveniently located on the Main Street, Piltown. The property is set back from the road with ornate railings, and two cut-granite steps lead to the entrance. The house was originally built in 1873 for the village doctor, as part of the Bessborough Estate. It is known locally as the 'Doctors' House, and with its impressive chimneys and decorative porch, is a superb example of Victorian architecture. This period property has been well maintained and retains many of its original features such as timber sash windows, shutters, scallop shaped slates, and original panelled doors and architraves. The reception rooms and main bedrooms all have original fireplaces. Situated over two floors, the ground floor comprises two large reception rooms, a study, breakfast room, kitchen, walk-in pantry, utility room, original conservatory, wetroom and separate WC. An unusual feature is the coal room which is an integral part of the house. Upstairs are five bedrooms and a magnificent family bathroom. There is the potential to convert the attic space which has windows to the front and back of the house. An extensive walled garden to the rear of the property has lawns and a variety of trees and shrubs. It still retains the original potting sheds. The garden has the benefit of direct access out onto a side lane. A sizeable garage is also accessible from the back garden as well as the lane. In addition, the property includes a large enclosed orchard which has development potential. The property is a listed protected structure. Early viewing is recommended.
