Full Description

No. 12 Tivoli Terrace North is a most attractive double fronted Victorian villa that has been in the same family since the 1930s. It is one of only two houses on the terrace with a red and Dolphin’s barn brick façade. The property dates from approximately 1870 and is a protected structure (DLRCoCo Ref: 930). Number 12 has been very well-maintained by the current owners and as a result of this it retains many of the charming period features one would expect to see in a property of its age such as sliding sash windows, fanlight, high ceilings, ceiling roses and original chimney pieces. This family home is presented in original condition and therefore presents a wonderful opportunity for the discerning purchaser to extend and modernise subject to the necessary Planning Permissions to create a splendid home full of character.

To the front of the property there is a railed gravelled front garden. The house extends to approximately 124sq.m (1,335sq.ft) and the accommodation briefly comprises of a generous reception hall with two very good reception rooms off it that overlook the front of the property. Behind this there are two well-proportioned bedrooms overlooking the rear of the property. To the upper level there is a third bedroom. At the lower level there is a w.c., kitchen/breakfast room, utility, family bathroom and a sunroom completes the accommodation. The heating in the property is gas fired and the windows are a mixture of single glazed and double glazed units. To the rear of the property there are two coal sheds and a garden store. A particular feature of the house is the very private mature south facing garden of approximately 14.5m in length. There is also a small garden at the side of the kitchen/utility room. A large garage is accessible from the garden with a vehicular up and over door opening out onto the rear lane running parallel with the property. The lane, which also provides off street parking, can be accessed via a locked gate further along Tivoli Terrace North. Number 12 benefits from being one of the only properties on the Terrace that comes with ownership of a rear laneway that provides such access.
