Poulton House is a delightful early Georgian period townhouse that has been thoughtfully and sensitively maintained. The original front part of the house dates from 1719 with the rear extension and second floor added later in the 18th century and a further extension added to the rear during the reign of Queen Victoria. Sash windows, open fireplaces and cornicing add to this property's character and charm.

Arranged over three floors, Poulton House offers flexible accommodation and would work perfectly as a family home. The stable has potential to be converted to an additional bedroom, study, or office. To the ground floor, there is a generously sized sitting room, separate dining room with fitted bookshelves, and a family kitchen/breakfast room looking out to the stunning garden. A study/library room, utility room, and cloakroom complete the ground floor.

The first floor offers three splendid double bedrooms, one being en-suite, along with a family shower room. To the second floor is an additional fourth bedroom and further well-proportioned bathroom.

There is an impressive wine cellar accessed via stairs leading down from the hallway.

The property is served by mains electricity, gas, water and drainage. Radiators served by gas heating were installed in 2004, and the property was rewired at the same time.


The garden has been lovingly restored, professionally landscaped and planted with well-stocked herbaceous borders, rose beds, yew hedges and trees. Facing south-east, the rear patio is a sun trap that offers generous space to relax or entertain. There is also a greenhouse and asparagus bed.

A double garage is located nearby and additional parking is available on Marlborough Street.
