Directions

Situation

Hillsborough Lodge enjoys a fantastic location on the edge of the city centre with its large array of shops, restaurants and recreational amenities. The university campus is within walking distance with its botanical gardens, sports facilities and Northcott theatre. The St. James Park rail link is nearby.

Description

A fine example of imposing, Victorian architecture, Hillsborough Lodge presents a unique opportunity to purchase one of the city's finest homes.

The house has recently undergone an extensive programme of renovation and modernisation and now offers the perfect blend of period character and charm, combined with modern contemporary living.

The accommodation is spread over four floors and offers so much potential for home-working, multi-generational annexe accommodation, or even income potential. Alternatively, Hillsborough Lodge is just a perfect family home.

The ground floor features an entrance lobby and welcoming reception hallway with parquet flooring and period detail. There is a large sitting room and dining room with bay window and access to a conservatory.

The Kitchen/Family room is simply stunning. Finished to an exceptional standard, with bespoke styling and has become a perfect space for family living and entertaining. At the rear of the ground floor there is a utility room, a room which could be made into an office and a cloakroom.

The first floor is approached by an elegant, turning staircase to a large, bright landing. There are three large double bedrooms on this floor, including the impressive principal suite with dressing room and stylish bathroom. This floor has an additional, separate high quality shower room.

A door and staircase rises to the second floor, which requires finishing off, but could be a completely self-contained area or flat with two large rooms which could be additional bedrooms or living and bedroom space and there is a room which could be made into a comfortable kitchen.

The lower ground floor again offers much potential. There are four really good sized rooms and hallway. There is real potential to adapt these rooms into habitable space, work rooms, or even a home cinema and gym.

Outside, Hillsborough Lodge has the benefit of off road parking for two cars and a very pretty, well planted garden. It should be noted that the garden wall is currently being re-instated and will considerably add to the seclusion and privacy.
