Description

64 Fountainhall Road is a wonderful example of a traditionally built detached stone built period villa circa 1880 with generous, versatile and well proportioned accommodation on two floors with driveway, garage and a superb, manicured garden. Located on a large corner plot, the house enjoys a south facing aspect and benefits from excellent levels of natural light. The house has been extremely well maintained and is presented in good order throughout. Much of the period detail has been retained including fireplaces, cornice work, window shutters and architraves. Notwithstanding the overall condition of the house today, an excellent opportunity now exists for a discerning buyer to reconfigure the accommodation to suit their own requirements and lifestyle.

The generous well proportioned family accommodation extends to about 4778sqft over two floors and boasts a fine reception hall and first floor landing, 3-4 principle public rooms, 5-6 spacious double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a shower room, cloakroom with WC, a large and well appointed kitchen breakfast room, a study, utility room, laundry room and a number of ancillary storage cupboards and a second separate WC to the rear at ground floor level.
