Recorder House is a Grade II listed Georgian property, believed todate back to the 18th Century. Development works have just been completed sub-dividing the original house, now creating an exceptionally well-presented semi-detached town house. The owners have undertaken a sympathetic conversion to a noteworthy standard of specification throughout, including reroofing, new electrics, central heating and plastering, in addition to high-quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

Stone steps lead up to the front door opening into a shared entrance hall with the western wing of Recorder House. A private front door opens into the central reception hall, having ‘Ted Todd’
oak engineered wood flooring and a refurbished original cast-iron four-column radiator, which feature throughout the house. To the front of the property, having stunning river views through a sixteen-pane sash window, is the sitting room showcasing an antique cast-iron fire surround housing a living flame gas fire with slate hearth. This room also features brushed chrome light
switches and sockets, which also feature hroughout the property.

A charming dining kitchen is equipped with a handmade range of solid wood cabinets by Clarendons of Rossett, hand-painted with
contemporary brushed steel handles. Granite work surfaces run throughout incorporating a double Belfast sink with mixer tap. An Elan gas Rangemaster twin oven forms a focal-point sitting within a tiled recess and high-quality integrated appliances include a Neff microwave and Bosch fridge, freezer and dishwasher. Original York stone flags adorn the kitchen floor leading into the
utility room, having plumbing for laundry ppliances, with a WC off and stable door giving access to the pretty rear courtyard.

From the hallway stone steps lead down to a vestibule in turn opening into a substantial basement room having full head height, power points, lighting, hot and cold water supply and central heating. This room could lend itself as a cinema room, home gymnasium or simply as elaborate storage.

To the first floor are two double bedrooms; one featuring an antique cast-iron fire surround with modern living flame fire. A second double bedroom features an ornamental antique fire surround, as do all other bedrooms, in addition to a wet-room
shower with ‘Jack and Jill’ facilities to the landing. The wet-room features contemporary sanitaryware with walk-in shower having a Hansgrohe thermostatic shower with fixed drench head and
additional hand wand. The front bedroom could equally serve as an evening drawing room, where required.

Stairs rise to the second-floor landing incorporating two large Velux roof lights allowing natural daylight to flood throughout the stairwell. Two further double bedrooms enjoy lavishly fitted
contemporary en suites; one having a bath with shower over whilst the second bedroom enjoys a wet room shower.

To the rear of the property is a generous walled courtyard with Indian stone paving throughout. The courtyard benefits from a sunny aspect at either end of the day, external power socket, a
cold-water supply and motion detection lighting ideal for outdoorentertaining. A pedestrian gate to the rear of the courtyard provides access to a private car park where there are two allocated parking spaces.
