One stunning home becoming available at the end of May is a Grade II listed period home in a tucked away position at Peninsula Square. Formerly part of the gymnasium for the barracks, the spacious accommodation has been cleverly transformed to provide well proportioned rooms over two floors.

The house benefits from a wide frontage and a lovely entrance hall has wide steps up to the main living space. The well fitted kitchen/breakfast room overlooks the Square with the ‘L’ shaped living room, with sitting and dining space, having direct access to the rear garden via French doors.

A superb 19’ master suite lies on the first floor with a wonderful vaulted ceiling and there are two further good size bedrooms to the front of the building and a main bathroom.

Outside there is valuable relaxing space to enjoy through the warmer months and a paved terrace leads to a lower lawn, enclosed, with gated access to the rear. There are two allocated parking spaces associated with the property.
