A freshly decorated Georgian Townhouse of immense charm and character in the heart of Worthing Town. Positioned at the southern end of Portland Rd as it widens this was one of the larger original properties built earlier than the surrounding cottages. Grade ll listed with a flint front, sash windows and pretty shop front this home certainly stands proud.
This particular property has the benefit of a larger rear terrace than some on the southern end of this popular street and the potential retail element is still a possibility with having a shopfront. There is scope to add your own stamp with in terms of internal decoration and we feel there is potential to improve reconfigure to suit your lifestyle to include positioning the bathroom on the upper floors subject to permission.
Our floorplan gives an idea of the substantial space on offer and the current layout. Briefly the accommodation comprises of a front reception with a deep glazed picture window which has been opened up to a dining room. To the rear is a kitchen diner with garden access and a range of modern wall and base units having space for appliances. A downstairs bathroom has been refitted in recent years to comprise a contemporary suite including a bath with shower scree, w.c and basin.
To the first floor accessed by an original Georgian staircase is a bright upper reception or bedroom overlooking the street scene. A second bedroom sits behind with a feature fireplace with a cast iron insert and a garden view to the rear.
The second floor mirrors the first with two more bedrooms in the same configuration.
An added benefit to this home is what we believe to be an original room in the roof with front and rear Mansard windows and boarded floor. There is currently loft hatch access to this space.
Externally the property benefits from a very private rear terrace which is west facing and has gated access to a rear passage. Within the space are two very useful brick built storage cupboards which are handy for bikes.
The property's location is ideal to most as it is in the heart of Worthing, a pleasant short walk to the sea front and a stone’s throw from the Eastern side with its ever developing arts scene, local shops, coffee houses, theatres, parks, train station and nearby schools are all within minutes away. Portland Road has recently seen the likes of Small Batch opening and high end individually owned restaurants and bars bringing a pleasant buzz. This is a versatile property that could suit many types of buyers from the social couple who love to entertain to the buyer looking for a perfectly positioned holiday let.
