A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO RESIDE IN THIS ICONIC TOWNHOUSE BOASTING UNRIVALLED VIEWS OF THE ANCIENT ABBEY WITHIN THE CATHEDRAL QUARTER
Positioned in arguably one of the best locations in town is this iconic one-bedroom cottage with extensive accommodation arranged over four floors. An impressive conversion of a former Savings Bank built in 1847 by the critically acclaimed architect, Lewis Nockalls Cottingham. This architectural jewel is an exemplar of the 19th century Gothic Revival movement with its striking tower, majestic oriel window and its picture-perfect façade comprising endless embellishments of stone quoins, heraldic shields, gargoyles, attractive red and black brickwork showcasing a diamond motif. Traditional, yet modern. Beautifully renovated with smart open-plan living and dining areas orientated around scenic views captured from each level, Norman Tower Cottage has since been transformed into a unique home by the current landlord. Cutting edge enhancements fuse seamlessly with the elegant period interiors. Of particular note is the chic steel clad kitchen, statement staircase with large removable glass panels, travertine tiles with underfloor heating and deep pile carpets. The property is surprisingly bright and airy thanks to the use of its rain-sensitive remote controlled skylights and clever LED lighting. There is the benefit of a walk-in shower option to be fitted in place of bath tub, if required. Also, a usefully large basement storage utility room, vestibule and a myriad of other storage spaces.
