Livet House is a historic granite semi-detached townhouse designed by George Coutts (circa 1894); it has been converted into just two properties. Over two considerable floors and with a gorgeous private garden and off-road parking, this late Victorian period property is the perfect blend of traditional with a modern twist: period features include high ceilings, original oversized timber doors, wood panelling, picture rails, ceiling rose, cornice work, deep skirting and two fireplaces with open fires.
Storm-style doors open into the vestibule with sole and exclusive access to the property. Entering the hallway with oak panelling to picture rail height and a tiled floor is an imposing welcome. On your right is an elegant drawing room with a large front-facing window and an open fireplace. Next is a formal dining room with elevated views over the secluded rear garden. The principal bedroom comprises a double bedroom with a dressing room and an en suite shower room. There is practical secondary external access with a side-facing front door. A family bathroom completes the ground floor with a shower over the bath plus a backup shower.
The lower level forms a more contemporary living space than the ground floor. A carpeted staircase passes a leaded glass window. Central to the home is the superb dining kitchen. This area floods with natural light, with patio doors opening onto a stone patio and a magnificent mature garden. The kitchen has an extensive range of base, drawer and wall cabinets complemented by polished granite work surfaces. A central island provides a casual eating space. There are two sinks. Appliances include a Cannon range cooker with six burner gas hob, a Neff integrated and concealed dishwasher, and a side-by-side fridge-freezer plumbed for filtered water. An open arch provides a valuable walk-in pantry with floor-to-ceiling larder-style units and base and drawer units.
Open plan to the kitchen is a comfortable, informal dining area. Off the dining area is an exceptionally stylish wet room fully tiled with a drench-style rainfall shower. The fourth double bedroom functions as a comfy family room overlooking the garden and captures the afternoon sun. Bedroom two reaches right through to the front of the house, with a remarkably generous bay window and fitted window seat. There is a decorative fireplace and fitted wardrobes. Bedroom three has a built-in wardrobe and operates as a home office.
The former Scullery is adjacent to the ground floor and is an excellent laundry room plumbed for an automatic washing machine and vented for a tumble dryer. The house benefits from 1 GB Fibre distributed throughout, providing high-speed internet access across all rooms.
Externally 13 King's Gate has exclusive ownership of a large, private, south-facing, enclosed and sheltered rear garden bound by stone walls creating a very safe space for pets or children. Additional access is provided at the side of the property. This wonderfully peaceful area is an oasis in the city with a centrepiece circular lawn. There are landscaped borders, flower beds and pathways. The front of the property has off-road parking for three cars.
