Welcome to Hemingway House. Designed by the same Hemingway responsible for our beautiful Clarke railway station, this fine home dates to 1902 as part of the Great Norther Railways (GNR) corporation of the late 1800's. This home was built for the Accountant of the GNR, and, in its prime, commanded a vantage over the station and works.
The house is now a charming 4-5 bed home that offers fantastic accommodation and a great location, all within a period, listed dwelling. It is a little unusual in layout, and the next owners will have fun reconfiguring the interior and indeed discovering the very quirky aspects of the exterior, stp.
The house is accessed by foot off the Ardee road. If you know your locality here, you'll know it's a stone's throw from the rear entrance to Clarke's station. It's also just a short stroll into town. A beautifully wrought iron railed front lawn with feature railed gate set the scene for this lovely period home. An impressive entrance vestibule with original tiled floor, leads to hallway. Going to right, an impressive dual aspect drawing room with solid fuel fire and many original features such as cornice and picture rails and fireplace, the room has good proportion and size.
Next, the dining room with feature windows and open fire and feature fireplace - again a very fine room and very capable of accommodating a large dining suite.
A very cute 'telephone room' is tucked underneath the stairs. This, to me, is a great WFH space.
The kitchen is next: a dual aspect room with stove at the heart of the matter - the central heating runs off this work horse of a stove, and the space accommodates kitchen and dining well. Beyond the kitchen is the annex: this very versatile space includes utility to back door, and back stairs to bedroom - originally the maid or housekeeper's quarters of bedrooms and ensuite. bathroom.
Back to the main hallway, an original solid mahogany staircase takes you to the upstairs accommodation. There are four bedrooms - some with original charming cast iron fireplace. Two are very large doubles and two are singles, plus a main bathroom which has been adapted for accessibility.
Outside, so much to talk about: the house rests right to left north east to south west. The northeast outdoor space comprises a series of enclosures which, if repurposed and connected back to front garden, can easily make a great garden and entertaining space off the kitchen. A garage to rear holds a lot of potential. At the opposite end is what I consider a sort of secret garden - tucked way is a beautiful space of light and green - it's quite unusual to have this much garden so close to town.
Joanne says: 'There is so much to see in this house - it's a lovely combination of old world charm with many original features matched with a fantastic location close to town centre and lots of potential.'
