Property SummaryA stylish three bedroom townhouse set within the iconic Wheatsheaf Works development offering modern accommodation arranged over three storeys, a communal courtyard, and secure undercroft parking.
Property This townhouse has been thoughtfully created as part of the Wheatsheaf Works development by Messrs Urban Rhythm. The Wheatsheaf Works, a former boot and shoe factory, has been sympathetically converted into a range of modern townhouses and apartments while retaining original features like the exposed steel beams seen in the communal courtyard.
The property offers two entrances, one through the wider building and entering via double doors into the first floor living dining kitchen, the other is accessed via the undercroft car park opening into the ground floor. The first floor is treated to large floor to ceiling height windows and exposed beams; the large, flexible space offers ample room for a dining table and comfortable seating area. The kitchen has been fitted with a range of cream wall and base units with a timber effect laminate worksurface encompassing a hob, oven and sink with drainer unit. There is a recess and plumbing for a utility appliance.
Rising up to the second floor, two double bedrooms are found. Both bedrooms look out over the stunning open courtyard in the middle of the former factory while the larger of the two benefits from stylish fitted sliding wardrobes. The bedrooms share use of the tastefully styled Jack and Jill bathroom fitted with a bath with shower over and glass screen, wash hand basin, and WC.
The ground floor, accessed via the stairs or undercroft carpark, boasts the largest bedroom, positioned off the welcoming entrance hall. This space could be used as the third bedroom together with the two on the second floor or as an additional living space as required. Another designer bathroom has been installed on this floor, again fitted with a bath with shower over and glass screen, wash hand basin, and WC.
Outside This property enjoys the communal courtyard space along with its own private garden space, sectioned off from the main open courtyard area. The garden has been designed to be ultra low-maintenance with an artificial lawn providing greenery. Timber fencing separates the property from neighbouring homes.
The townhouse enjoys allocated parking for a vehicle in the secure undercroft car park.
