Warwick’s, arguably, most notable and beautiful historic townhouse is for sale.
Built for the local mayor in 1694, 2 Northgate Street finds itself in one of the most prominent positions within the town, adjacent to St Mary’s collegiate church.
Of a size and scale considerably grander than its neighbours, the house has undergone three years of meticulous restoration by list building specialists Messenger Construction, under the careful direction of Ash Mill Developments.
The three-storey home has an unassuming yet grand street front facade, taking up 5,000 sq ft of space including a cellar and sizeable two-door garage.
With an Indian Sandstone terrace in the courtyard immediately adjacent to the back of the property, the house has a beautifully restored wall running along the southern boundary between the garden and church twintern, with a generous private lawned and paved rear garden.
With rooms of elegant proportions, the ground floor features two reception rooms with matching double doors off the central hallway, one designed as a drawing room and the other a formal dining room.
The house also has a third reception area, an east facing morning room accessed via the rear hall and front reception room overlooking the garden.
Arranged around a working island, the beautifully appointed substantial kitchen at the rear of the house has large double doors onto the paved terraced and landscaped garden.
Designed by leading designers, Guild Anderson, the handmade kitchen features a Fisher & Paykel oversized fridge freezer and, with a contemporary twist, an elegant ‘Everhot’ cast iron range.
Moving upstairs, to the rear of the first floor is the master bedroom suite.
East and South facing with views directly over the neighbouring church, the suite comprises a dressing area, walk-through wardrobe and bathroom with twin sinks, a freestanding bath and enclosed double shower.
With three further en suite bathrooms on the first floor, and two further bedrooms and shared bathroom on the second floor, the house offers an abundance of comfortable accommodation for a large family or guests, or alternatively live-work space.
2 Northgate Street is being marketed by Ash Mill at a guide price of £2,850,000.
