Formally known as Preston Farm and part of Princess Helena College, Dower House is a beautiful chequered red brick pattern property which has been cleverly converted into six luxury residences. Dating back to 1742 the house has an interesting past having long served the staff of the college throughout the 18th and 19th century and in 1910 was split into two three bedroom garden cottages and a separate two bedroom annexe. The property has also believed to have a connection with the royal family with HRH Duchess of Gloucester visiting and more interestingly refurbishing the house in 1992. Now Grade II Listed each property has sash windows, most have original features and all retain both individual and visitor parking, a bin-store and and secure gated entry.


STEP INSIDE:
Plot 5 is located to the side of the development and is tucked in the far end, creating an extra feeling of space and seclusion from the neighbours. With trailing white roses meandering up the brickwork this property oozes curb appeal with the accommodation spread across three floors. Upon entry a welcoming hallway gives access to the stairs and includes a storage coat cupboard and ground floor cloakroom. The kitchen/dining room expands the width of the building and is the only plot that enjoys a central kitchen island. A functional utility room leads out to the rear. Also from the kitchen, double doors lead into a stunning triple aspect orangery with central atrium. The first floor serves two double bedrooms and a bathroom with the master bedroom enjoying a large en-suite. Two further double bedrooms and an additional bathroom are further complimented by the landing.
