GRANDEUR, ELEGANCE, LOCATION AND SPECTACULAR VIEWS! Have a look now at our property tour by searching You Tube for TMS Property Video - Harbour Parade. Originally the National Provincial Bank, the building was constructed in 1893 with this apartment, together with the one above, believed to have been the bank manager's residence and private offices. Purchased by its current owners almost 10 years ago and lovingly restored, beautifully renovated and sympathetically modernized throughout. This is a truly stunning, grade II listed, THREE bedroomed harbour front 'mini mansion'. The apartment benefits from being all on one level and having a wealth of original features including working marble and mahogany fireplaces, high skirting boards, restored Terrazzo flooring, high ceilings with beautiful ceiling roses and sculptured coving to name but a few. Where features have been missing, it's been a labour of love trawling through antique shops to find the perfect replacement and even importing curtains from abroad to make sure the drop, style and colour was absolutely right. The property enjoys those wonderful harbour and town views through the large bay window of the spacious sitting room, the substantial master bedroom and the fabulously indulgent bathroom where you can admire the scenery from the free standing claw foot bath! To make sure you are not disturbed, whilst in the bath, there is also a separate cloakroom! It's just a stroll down the stone steps to the harbour front with its eclectic mix of shops, bars and restaurants. If you are after a lazy day on the beach then it's five minutes down Harbour Parade, past the historic Royal Victoria Pavilion and you are there! Everything about this property oozes quality, style and space with the most desirable location to match. Call TMS today to arrange an accompanied viewing on 01843 866055. OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK.
