When we talk of townhouses today, we are usually referring to tiny, squashed together flats or apartments possessing staircases to bedrooms which are often only suitable to those trained in the art of contortionism.
Traditionally, of course, a townhouse was a substantial urban dwelling belonging to refined gentrified folk and thus a property of substance. “Glenaulin” is such a townhouse, be assured!
Extending to over 3000 sq. ft. this family home possesses an air of style and elegance rarely seen in modern properties and offers the opportunity of an enchanting journey to some lucky family.
On entering “Glenaulin”, one is greeted by the grand, yet quaint hallway which sets the tone of homeliness that pervades throughout the property. There are three reception rooms off the hall, which provide enough “own space” for even the largest of families to lose themselves in, while the breakfast room and kitchen also are of good dimensions. The ceilings for the most part are 9’6” in height, a feature which enhances a very spacious feel and allows the inlaid fireplaces in the rooms to dominate.
The staircase leads from the hall to the five bedrooms on the first floor, which also houses the main bathroom. Indeed the staircase and landing are fine features of this house and are complemented quite gloriously by the stained glass windows which overlooks them.
As if not to be outdone by the grandeur of “Glenaulin”, the gardens are in themselves quite breath-taking and comprise of paved terraces, vegetable gardens, lawns and mature trees, bordered for the most part by large stone walls and hedges. When one considers that this site extends to over half an acre, it’s easy to imagine how marvellous a place it must be to spend a childhood.
Of course, parts of “Glenaulin” would benefit from a touch of modernisation and remedial work here and there, it should be well understood that this is a house ready to move into just as it is.
Giving the strategic location of this property and its proximity to the town centre, “Glenaulin” will also have great appeal to developers subject to planning permission. The site has three entrance points offering excellent access and we are confident that healthy market exists for the type of property one would expect to see in this location.
